Since the last time we discussed the upcoming “Shang-Chi and the Legend Of The Ten Rings” film with the teaser trailer (seen HERE in case you missed it), a lot has happened in the MCU. “The Falcon and The Winter Solder” finished an exciting season and left many wondering what is to come and now “Loki” is vexing us week by week in a very interesting series. We even got the first trailer for “Eternals” (seen HERE in another shameless plug to keep you on the site). Now it’s time to enjoy the full on Official Trailer for this flick that will find everyone kung-fu fighting. Let’s take a look.
The Press Release:
This year, Marvel Comics will commemorate the 10th anniversary of one of its brightest stars—Miles Morales!

The last decade has seen Miles star in both his own hit ongoing series as well as team books such as Champions and All-New Avengers plus major appearances in film, video games, and more. Marvel is proud to celebrate the character’s incredible impact this year with a series of variant covers crafted by the industry’s top artists including Mike Del Mundo, Javier Garrón, and Russell Dauterman.

The former Avenger will be forced to confront his family’s dark history when the mysterious Five Weapons Society emerges from the shadows. With the group’s leadership in question, a bloody power struggle will erupt into a full-blown war and only the deadly fists of Shang-Chi can protect the Marvel Universe from the fallout.

Get your first look at this shocking family reunion in the SHANG-CHI #1 trailer, featuring never-before-seen art from the debut issue!
“We are keeping all of the big pieces of Shang-Chi’s backstory. He’s the son of a supervillain who dreamed of taking over the world. Shang-Chi grew up in a remote area of China, separated from modern society. He eventually made his way to America and joined forces with American superheroes. We want to flesh him out by adding to his supporting cast,” Yang revealed in a recent interview with SYFY Wire. “We’ve met some of his siblings in the past, but in this particular miniseries we’re going to meet a full set of them. Each is going to bring out a different aspect of Shang-Chi’s personality.”
Don’t miss this fascinating new take on the Shang-Chi mythos when this action-packed series kicks off on September 30th!
