Marvel confirms Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will now be released in Tamil as well. Last week the studio announced that the movie will be released in four languages English, Hindi, Telugu and Kannada!
Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings stars Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, who must confront the past he thought he left behind when he is drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization. This is the first Marvel film featuring Asian cast as a lead character.
The announcement comes after the Tamil Nadu government relaxed the lockdown rules by allowing movie theatres to open from 27 August with 50 per cent occupancy.
The film is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and produced by Kevin Feige and Jonathan Schwartz, with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and Charles Newirth serving as executive producers. Along with Cretton, David Callaham and Andrew Lanham wrote the screenplay for the film.
Shang-Chi was first created in the 1970s by writer Steve Englehart and artist Jim Starlin, debuting in Special Marvel Edition #15 in the Bronze Age of Comic Books, and starred in his own solo title until 1983.
The movie stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Meng’er Zhang, Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu, Benedict Wong, Yuen Wah, Ronny Chieng, Zach Cherry, Dallas Liu, with Michelle Yeoh, and Tony Leung.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is all set to hit theatres on 3 September 2021.
