In Shang-Chi and the Ten Rings #1, Eisner Award-winning writer Gene Luen Yang teams up with renowned artist Marcus To to kick off a new comic series with the main character confronting new villains and adversaries as they seek to take the mythical Ten Rings from him. The trailer’s eye-catching imagery depicts the eponymous warrior in dynamic positions fighting adversaries with his renowned Ten Rings.
“Shang-Chi is now the master of the 10 rings,” says large strong language on the trailer’s screen. As he stands in a dynamic position, he is seen holding the rings as they swirl about him. “And that doesn’t sit well with the rest of the Marvel universe,” the text adds, “and that doesn’t sit well with the rest of the Marvel universe.” After then, the video switches to an action-packed montage featuring Shang-Chi fighting a variety of foes. The film concludes with Dike Ruan’s cover art for the forthcoming issue, which has a guaranteed publication date of July 2022.
After the release of his first Marvel Studios film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, in which he was played by Simu Liu, the character grew in popularity among Marvel fans. The MCU film garnered mostly good reviews from reviewers and consumers, with a 91 percent critic score and a 98 percent audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. With a sequel presently in development and a new comic series set to debut this summer, the character’s popularity is only growing.
Gene Luen Yang wrote Shang-Chi and the Ten Rings #1, while Marcus To contributed the artwork. On July 20, the comic book will be released.
