“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings 2”: release date, announcement
According to most film critics, the part 2 of the film “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” will be released no earlier than the summer of 2023 and will receive a different title. At the moment, the development of the picture is in the stage of plotting, and the project itself has a working title “Shang-Chi. Continuation”. On the headlines of the posters, we will most likely see the new title of the film, more sonorous and marketing. We continue to follow the news.
It has been a thousand years since Wenwu found the powerful 10 rings. With their help, he subdued everything he wanted, but the enemies did not want to leave him alone. Once his target was the village of Ta Lo, which was inhabited by mythical creatures. Surprisingly, in a battle with the gatekeepers to the village of Ying Li, the mighty Wenwu failed.
So hungry for power, he gave up the ten rings in favor of living peacefully with Ying Li. The girl also had to give up her magical gift. A quiet life gave them two children: the elder Shang-Chi and the younger Xu Xialing. In the absence of Wenwu, his old enemies once came and killed Yin Li, who had managed to hide the children.
The happy life ended there. Burning with rage, Wenwu put on the rings again and began killing everyone who got in his way. None of his enemies knew mercy. He taught Shang-Chi the most dangerous martial techniques by the time he was 16. It was then that a man was found who dared to take Ying Li away from their family. And the father sent his son to the first murder.
Promising his sister to return soon, Shang-Chi flees to the United States and does not appear for decades. Xialing is so disappointed that she mastered the martial arts herself and decided not to let anyone else into her heart. Shang-Chi decided not to follow his father’s lead and hid from him. Having found a job in the parking lot, he rented an apartment for himself, pretended to be an ordinary guy and settled in a new place.
So his life would have continued, but one day the father decides to gather the children together and say that he hears the mother’s soul – she is behind the forbidden wall in Ta Lo. Wenwu is counting on their help. Having betrayed their parent, they go to the village and prepare the locals for war. In reality, only inconceivable monsters live behind the wall.
But the rings have a negative effect on the father and he does not understand that with the voice of Yin Li he is summoned by demons. Wenwu manages to defeat the inhabitants of Ta Lo, destroy the wall, but at the last moment he realizes what mistake he made. An instant before his death, he gives ten rings to his son, who will have to figure out everything that his father has done…
