Another Marvel icon is joining the MCU after Avengers: Endgame, thanks to the news that Marvel is reportedly developing a Shang-Chi movie and has now hired Destin Daniel Cretton for the project. Iron Fist and Collen Wing are about to have some stiff competition in the martial artist superhero department.
But who is Shang-Chi, and why is he regarded as one of the greatest warriors in the Marvel Universe? Here’s why they call him the Master of Kung Fu!
Shang-Chi: The Basics
Shang-Chi may be the son of one one of the worst villains in the Marvel Universe, but he himself ranks among its greatest heroes. Shang-Chi has devoted his life to perfecting his martial arts abilities. Rather than using those talents for fame and fortune, he travels the world and rights wrongs. Sometimes he works alone. Other times he fights alongside heroes like Spider-Man, Daredevil or the Avengers. But wherever he goes, Shang-Chi inspires hope in the hearts of the innocent and dread in anyone foolish enough to challenge him in battle.
