A LEGO leak for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings reveals the costume Simu Liu will wear when she debuts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A possible leak of a LEGO set for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has given fans their first look at the costume Simu Liu will wear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Although part of it is obscured, the outer box for the Shang-chi The LEGO set says it is for a “battle in the old village”. Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi is shown on the far right of the packaging in a sleeveless red blouse with criss-cross black lines across the top. The center of the box features a large red and white dragon that is shooting blue flames from its mouth. Below, Shang-Chi is fighting Wenwu, which may be another name for The Mandarin. Other figures shown with Shang-Chi and Wenwu include Xialing, Death Dealer, and a small creature named Morris.
The MCU suit that Shang-Chi will be wearing has some similarities to the suits he wears in the comics. Most of the Shang-Chi comedic costumes have red as the main color, shown at the top. Right now, it’s hard to tell if Shang-Chi will have matching red pants or if they’re black. Marvel recently gave Shang-Chi an updated superhero costume for a new limited series from writer Gene Luen Yang and artists Dike Ruan and Philip Tan. The publisher also announced a new volume of Shang-chi by Gene Luen Yang and Dike Ruan who will pit Shang-Chi against the heroes of the Marvel Universe.
Fans may have to wait until the first trailer for Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings is released before officially feast your eyes on his MCU costume. Simu Liu has promised that the trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be worth the wait.
“It’s going to be so good when it comes out guys I PROMISE. Not today … just not today,” Liu wrote on Twitter. He also attached a disappointed GIF of himself, so fans know he’s just as disappointed as they are that there are no images to release yet.
Opening in the summer of 2021, Simu Liu plays Shang-Chi in Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings. Shang-Chi must confront the past that he thought he had left behind when he is drawn into the network of the mysterious Ten Rings organization.
