As a bit of surprise to Marvel fans, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will continue a plotline that has its roots in the earliest days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The new movie is set to bring back the Ten Rings, a terrorist organization that appeared in the first Iron Man movie. While it appeared that Iron Man 3 would introduce Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin, the leader of the Ten Rings organization and a classic Marvel villain, it ended up being a "fake out" as part of a wider plot designed to trick Tony Stark. In a subsequent Marvel One-Shot, All Hail the King, Ben Kingsley's character was broken out of prison by a Ten Rings operative who warned him that the "real" Mandarin was upset by the misuse of his title. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will introduce Tony Leung as the real Mandarin and the assumed leader of the Ten Rings organization.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will star Simu Liu as Shang-Chi and Awkwafina. The new movie will be released on February 12, 2021.
