Shang-Chi is about to return to comics with a five-part miniseries to help build up hype for next year’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings film. Now, Marvel Comics has released a new trailer to tease Shang-Chi #1. This new series is being written by Gene Luen Yang with art by Dike Ruan and Philip Tan.
The former Avenger will be forced to confront his family’s dark history when the mysterious Five Weapons Society emerges from the shadows. With the group’s leadership in question, a bloody power struggle will erupt into a full-blown war and only the deadly fists of Shang-Chi can protect the Marvel Universe from the fallout. Founded by his father, Zheng Zu, this ancient group of warriors will reveal long-hidden truths about Shang-Chi’s past and drag the hero back into a world he thought he left behind forever.
Shang-Chi #1 is set to hit local comic stores and digitla fronts like the Marvel Comics app and comiXology on September 30. Meanwhile, fans will have to wait until May 7, 2021 to see Shang-Chi on the silver screen.
