As you will no doubt know by now, Shang-Chi will feature a fighting tournament of some kind, and the trailer confirmed that Wong will face Abomination. Having a Black Widow appear in said competition makes perfect sense, but since we don’t know where in the Phase 4 timeline it takes place Shang-Chi, she might still be under Dreykov’s mind control when he enters the cage to fight.
Either way, this confirmation hasn’t been a big reveal because Xu confirmed on Instagram some time ago that she was part of the cast of Shang-Chi.
Shang-Chi must confront his past after an encounter with the Ten Rings, the same terrorist group that is behind Tony Stark’s kidnapping in Iron Man. Shang-Chi must face the past that he thought he had left behind when he is attracted by the network of the mysterious organization of the Ten Rings.
Directed by Destin Cretton from a script by Dave Callaham, the film stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, Michelle Yeoh, Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu and Ronny Chieng among others.
The film will open in theaters on September 3, 2021.
