A new Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings trailer dropped and focus on the eponymous Ten Rings organization led by Shang-Chi’s father, Wenwu aka The Mandarin.
Marvel has dropped a new trailer that delves deeper into the Ten Rings, a criminal organization that has a deep history in the MCU stretching back to the first Iron Man movie. After a false Mandarin was apprehended in Iron Man 3, the real Ten Rings and its leader, played by Tony Leung, will appear in Shang-Chi.
But beyond just the name of an organization, the rings also refer to the ten rings Wenwu wears. Their deadly abilities are front-and-center of the new trailer.
The trailer also traces the history of Shang-Chi as Wenwu’s son. Wenwu raised Shang-Chi seemingly as his successor, one day telling him that he will inherit the rings if he is worthy. At some point, however, the two had a falling out and Shang-Chi set out on his own and away from his father.

Other highlights from the new trailer include, and bear with me, a dragon and also maybe Abomination who returns after his stin in The Incredible Hulk.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will premiere in theaters on September 3. Unlike the upcoming Black Widow which will be released simultaneously on Disney Plus Premier Access, Shang-Chi will have an exclusive 45-day theatrical run.
