The 25th film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings, is Marvel’s second foray into a martial-arts-centric production after the Netflix TV series Iron Fist. The film was a universal success and was praised for its well-choreographed fight sequences and storytelling. It is also one of the highest-grossing films from Hollywood in the pandemic era.
1. One of the Widows in the film Black Widow features in the fight club fight scenes in one of the lower tiers of the club.
2. Shang-Chi fighting shirtless in the arena is a reference to his comic book debut, in which he appears shirtless throughout his initial comic book run. This was in fact a homage to Bruce Lee, who appeared shirtless in several of his films
3. The character who is shown to be filming the fight scene is played by the same actor that asks Peter Parker at the hot dog stand if he's "the spider guy on youtube", in the film Spider-man: Homecoming.
4. Simu Liu was in his underwear and nibbling on shrimp crackers when he got the call from MCU boss Kevin Feige confirming that he has been cast as the lead in the film. Feige also informed Liu that he was expected at Comic-Con in four days' time.
5. The film does not feature an English line until 10 minutes into its runtime.
6. In the bus fight scene, a woman has her laptop cut in half. Interestingly enough, she would be able to recover her data from the hard drive as the laptop is a model that has its storage positioned to one of the sides.
