There's a lot to unpack in the new trailer for Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings. After all, the teaser pretty much confirms that the "Ten Rings" are actual rings. In addition to that, we just got our first look at Abomination's return in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Shang-Chi trailer first puts the focus on the character's past and his strained relationship with his father Wenwu. We also get to meet the mysterious Jiang Nan played by Michelle Yeoh, who seems to know everything about the titular hero.


Amidst all the new footage, fans are freaking out over the last scene which features Shang-Chi and Katy watching what appears to be a cage fight between Abomination and a familiar-looking monk. Although others have argued that this might be the MCU version of Fin Fang Foom, the subtitles confirm that it's actually Hulk's enemy.

This is an amazing revelation considering that we already know that Abomination is coming back to the MCU. It was previously confirmed that 2008's The Incredible Hulk star Tim Roth will reprise his role as Emil Blonsky in the upcoming series She-Hulk. However, we didn't expect that we'd get our first look at this return in a different movie this year.

Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and stars Simu Liu as the titular hero. The film also features Awkwafina, Tony Leung, Fala Chen, Meng'er Zhang, Florian Munteanu, and Ronny Chieng. It hits theaters on September 3, 2021.
