‘Shang-Chi’ Star Simu Liu Gives First Look at Superhero Costume

The first look at Marvel’s upcoming movie “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” has been revealed by none other than Shang-Chi himself, star Simu Liu.

On Monday, Liu gifted Marvel fans the first look at the “Shang-Chi” poster and his superhero costume.

“Whoever said that you could only RECEIVE presents on your birthday? Today, I’m giving you your FIRST LOOK at the teaser poster for ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,’” Liu wrote on Twitter Monday morning, which was also his birthday.

He also revealed that the debut trailer for the film, which releases on September 3, will be coming in the next few weeks.

“Shang-Chi” will make history as the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to center on an Asian lead and with an Asian filmmaking team: director Destin Daniel Cretton (“Just Mercy”) and screenwriter David Callaham (“Wonder Woman 1984”). Michelle Yeoh, Awkwafina, Ronny Chieng, Tony Leung, Fala Chen, Meng’er Zhang and Florian Munteanu round out the cast.

The movie will revisit the classic Marvel villain, the Mandarin, who was portrayed in “Iron Man 3” by Ben Kinsgley. However, that Mandarin turned out to be an actor, and Leung is now set to play the sinister villain, who gains mystical powers from 10 magical rings, like the title suggests.

“Shang-Chi” was originally scheduled to release in February 2021, but, like many films during the coronavirus pandemic, it was delayed several times to May, July and finally September 3, 2021.

“Black Widow,” the delayed standalone film starring Scarlet Johansson, will release in theaters and on Disney Plus with $30 premier access on July 9.
