According to We Got This Covered, Marvel Studios plans to introduce the Iron Fist in a future Shang-Chi sequel.
It has been said that the character will be played by a new actor and his story will have nothing to do with the Marvel series in partnership with Netflix.
In the comics, Danny Rand and Shang-Chi have a long history of fighting street crime and sharing age-old martial arts techniques, so it makes sense that they appear together in the cinema.
Enjoy to watch:
Despite this, the information has not yet been confirmed, so consider it as rumor.
Recalling that 'Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' debuts in February 2021.
The cast features Simu Liu, Tony Leung, and Awkwafina.
About the character
The creation of Shang-Chi, which means Spiritual Ascension in Chinese, dates back to the 1970s, when Kung Fu movies and series were a real fever in the North American entertainment market. Its creators were big fans of this kind of material and, above all, fanatics for the Legend of Martial Arts, the peerless Bruce Lee. This fanaticism reflected directly on the identity of the honorable hero, who in addition to having adventures inspired by Lee also had his face based in the multitalented artist.
Created by Steve Englehart, owner of a very interesting phase of the Avengers, and Jim Starlin, the mind behind Thanos, Shang-Chi is the son of the mythical Fu Manchu. You have probably heard of Fu Manchu. He comes from English literature and is the great stereotype of the Chinese Gang Leader.
He has ancestry of the Chinese Imperial Family, fascination with mysticism and his most striking feature is the long, thin mustaches. As Shang-Chi gained a lot of popularity among comic book fans, Marvel decided to buy rights to Fu Manchu's stories from author Sax Rohmer and incorporated some of them into the hero's mythology, making the appropriate adaptations, of course, and even mixing with some characters from the Bruce Lee movies.
