The film also stars Awkwafina as Shang-Chi’s friend Katy, with Michelle Yeoh as Ying Nan, and Tony Leung as Xu Wenwu, Shang-Chi’s father.
The cast is rounded out by Meng’er Zhang, Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu, Benedict Wong, Yuen Wah, Ronny Chieng, Zach Cherry, and Dallas Liu.
The movie is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and produced by Kevin Feige and Jonathan Schwartz, with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and Charles Newirth serving as executive producers.
Dave Callaham & Destin Daniel Cretton & Andrew Lanham wrote the screenplay and the screen story is by Dave Callaham & Destin Daniel Cretton.
“Shang-Chi’s main problem in his life is rooted in not knowing who he really is,” said Cretton previously. “He has to learn how to own every part of himself. If he doesn’t allow himself to look at all of it — the good, the bad, the light and the dark — and to own it all, he won’t be able to reach his full potential.”
Shang-Chi was first seen in Special Marvel Edition #15 in 1973 and was created by Steven Engelhart and Jim Starlin. Shang-Chi fights unarmed, as well as with weapons like a gun, nunchaku and jian in the wushu style. He can also create duplicates of himself.
Shang-Chi is the son of Fu Manchu and was trained by his father and his father’s instructors in martial arts, eventually realizing that Fu Manchu isn’t a good man.
Shang-Chi has also been an Avenger. He has worked with Iron Fist, The Thing, Spider-Man, Black Widow and Nick Fury, setting the character in a perfect position to join the team as Marvel Studios moves into its next phase.
In the comics, the character has also also been a member of Heroes for Hire.
