Did The Shang-Chi Trailer Feature a Spider-Man: Homecoming Character?

We're loving the new trailer for Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings especially since we've been waiting for the teaser for a long time. So it's no surprise that fans are studying every second of the trailer and some have made an interesting discovery. Amazingly, it looks like the teaser featured a surprise cameo from a Spider-Man: Homecoming character!

One of the most exciting sequences in the Legend of the Ten Rings trailer features an epic fight between Simu Liu's character and some thugs in a bus. After Shang-Chi defeats his opponents, Awkwafina's Katy asks him, "Who are you?" Although we don't get a response, one fan noticed a familiar face in the background.


The unknown character certainly looks a lot like Zack Cherry, who previously appeared in Homecoming as a hotdog vendor. But is it actually Cherry? The actor denies his involvement in Shang-Chi but in a cheeky way.

For now, it doesn't look like Cherry wants to confirm his cameo in The Legend of The Ten Rings but it's still a cool thing to spot in the trailer. In the meantime, we have other things to be concerned about like what the Ten Rings are capable of and whether they will play a larger role in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton. It also stars Tony Leung, Fala Chen, Meng'er Zhang, Florian Munteanu, Ronny Chieng, and Michelle Yeoh. The movie is scheduled for release on September 3, 2021.
