BTS Shang-Chi Featurette
“Shang-Chi is, at its core, a Marvel movie that comes with the promise of action,” star Simu Liu says in a new two minute clip taking viewers behind-the-scenes of the forthcoming film introducing the hero the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, before joking, “some days at work are harder than others.”
In the new BTS Shang-Chi clip, viewers learn about what went into bringing the film’s epic action sequences to life like the bus fight, the arena fight, and the fight styles and martial arts techniques used to bring the film to life.
“We’re going to incorporate a lot of different styles of martial arts…that kind of fill in this mosaic of how this character moves.” Liu said.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
From the early reviews, it’s clear that the most recent clip from Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings shows a lot of the high-octane action from the new film. But what’s shocking is what this clip leaves out! And it’s not just Liu’s pants in one behind-the-scenes clip of him filming an action sequence on a bus in San Francisco, California (hint: he’s actually wearing shorts to train, not the pants we see in the final shots from the film).
The new film follows Shang-Chi, “who must confront the past he thought he left behind when he is drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization.”
The film also stars Tony Lueng Chiu-Wai as Wenwu, Awkwafina as Shang-Chi’s friend Katy, Meng’er Zhang as Xialing, and Michelle Yeoh as Ying Nan, as well as Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu, and Ronny Chieng. All of whom talked about the unique martial arts styles they brought to their characters in the new clip, including Tai Chi and Wing Chun.
The film is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and produced by Kevin Feige and Jonathan Schwartz. David Callaham and Destin Daniel Cretton and Andrew Lanham wrote the screenplay for the film, debuting in theaters September 3rd.
