While Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will have its movie release pushed back largely due to the pandemic, the other wheels of marketing and promotion keep on turning. Found by a redditor in Israel, the LEGO 76177 Shang-Chi Battle At The Ancient Village set gives us a peek at possible scenes from the movie.
The set includes a dragon with five mini-figurines of the movie – Shang-Chi (Simu Liu), Xialing (Meng’er Zhang), Wenwu (Tony Leung), Death Dealer and a strange moth-like creature Morris.
The strange creature, Morris is likely based on the mythological Chinese creature DiJiang, which has six legs and four wings without any facial features or eyes. It’ll be interesting to see how this mythic creature is tied in with the movie. It is also the first LEGO figurine of Tony Leung as Wenwu. As far as we know, Tony Leung’s character will eventually evolve into the Mandarin and it might be a bit of a stretch for the dragon in the set to eventually become Fin Fang Foom.
It seems that even more sets are making an appearance with the LEGO 76176 Escape From The Ten Rings set. Shang-Chi and Wen Wu will be featured in this set again together with Katy ( Awkwafina) and Razor Fist (Florian Munteanu). Our guess is considering how Wen Wu and Shang-Chi are seemingly working closely together, a betrayal might be in the works.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was initially announced for an early 2021 release but has been delayed several times with the latest release slated for September 2021. The movie will most likely be released in theatres as well as Disney+ like the upcoming Black Widow.
