The New Poster For Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings Teases An Epic Adventure

Marvel Studios has become a well-oiled machine at this point. Now with the inclusion of Disney+ original shows, superhero fans know they're never too far away from the next Marvel project. We're in a bit of a lull at the moment after the release of "Black Widow" and the universe-altering finale of "Loki." Luckily, in a little over a month, people will flock to their local theaters to see "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings."

The martial arts master finally gets his time in the sun in what's bound to be an epic adventure that sets up great things to come in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We know from the trailer that Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) ends up confronting his father's nefarious criminal organization. His father may have expected him to take over the reins, but it's clear Shang-Chi wishes to pursue a different destiny.

This conflict is teased perfectly in the official theatrical poster Marvel has just unleashed. It takes some cues from previous Marvel posters, but several intriguing plot points also come across.

The Shang-Chi poster teases an intense confrontation

The official Marvel Studios Twitter page released the "Shang-Chi" poster on July 30, and it's everything MCU fans could want and more. Naturally, Simu Liu's Shang-Chi is front and center, but much like the storyline itself, his father's legacy looms over him. Tony Leung portrays the new Mandarin after Ben Kingsley played an actor in "Iron Man 3" pretending to be the supervillain. Other characters, including Katy (Awkwafina), Jiang Nan (Michelle Yeoh), Xialing (Meng'er Zhang), and Razor Fist (Florian Munteanu), fill out the foreground.

One of the most exciting tidbits from the poster comes straight out of a moment in a previous trailer that had everyone talking. If you look in the bottom left-hand corner, you'll see Abomination from 2008's "The Incredible Hulk" in the cage. A teaser showed Abomination going head-to-head against Wong (Benedict Wong) in a cage match. It's unclear if his appearance amounts to little more than a cameo, but his inclusion on the poster could hint the Hulk adversary could potentially have a more significant role to play. 

Expect the marketing for this movie to ramp up now that we're in the final stretch before the film releases to theaters on September 3. "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" will be available exclusively in theaters for 45 days before it becomes available on Disney+ Premier Access (via Variety). You won't want to miss it.
