Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: discover the reactions to Marvel's latest

Marvel Studios' Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is the latest step in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In the wake of Black Widow, we now get the first MCU character fronted by an actor of Asian heritage: martial artist Simu Liu who plays the gifted yet conflicted Shang-Chi of the title.

Our central hero is haunted by the memory of his father, Wenwu (Tony Leung), who attempted to groom his son for a role in a feared criminal organisation. Decades later, Shang-Chi has found sanctuary in America, but he then discovers Wenwu has morphed into the dreaded Mandarin, head of the Ten Rings crime syndicate. 

The stage is set for an exciting father-son showdown replete with all manner of magical abilities and rapid-fire fight sequences. The first reactions to Shang-Chi have now come in and they praise a visually inventive, standalone Marvel movie that's able to carve out its own identity.


No doubt these reactions have got you all fired up. The good news is the film is not too far away: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings hits Cineworld screens on 3rd September.
