Shang-Chi: Tony Leung’s Wenwu Is ‘Not The Mandarin In The Way People Are Expecting’ – Exclusive
https://www.empireonline.com/movies/news/shang-chi-tony-leung-wenwu-mandarin-expecting-exclusive/
by Ben Travis | Posted12 hours ago



If we’re only just being introduced to Shang-Chi in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are elements of the mythology surrounding the character that have a long legacy on our screens. For one, the film’s full title is Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings – with the Ten Rings (or, a version of the Ten Rings) being the group that first captured Tony Stark way back in Iron Man. And then there’s The Mandarin. If he was initially promised as the main villain of Iron Man 3, that incarnation of the character was revealed mid-way through the movie to be a ruse portrayed by Sir Ben Kingsley’s ailing actor Trevor Slattery. Now, the ‘real’ Mandarin is entering the MCU in the form of Shang-Chi’s father, Tony Leung’s Wenwu.

And yet, while Marvel is doing The Mandarin for real this time, there may be more here than meets the eye too. “Our version of the character is not The Mandarin in the way that people are expecting him to be,” Shang-Chi co-writer Dave Callaham teases in Empire’s cover feature. “‘The Mandarin’ is a title that has been applied to him in the past by people that don’t understand his culture. But he’s a much deeper character than I think a lot of people would expect.”

The relationship – and tension – between Wenwu and Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi is set to be a central thread of the film, a key element that drew director Destin Daniel Cretton to the project. But bringing The Mandarin to the screen also came with a responsibility not to perpetuate racist archetypes that have endured through decades of popular culture. “It was for me the part of the Shang-Chi comics that I personally really connected to,” says Cretton. “It was really important for us to find the root of that anger and that pain. That was the goal from the get-go, and probably the number one fear of all of us was creating a Mandarin that was further contributing to the ‘Yellow Peril’ type of stereotypes that are still flying around.”

One way of helping make sure The Mandarin emerges as a fully fleshed-out character? Cast the legendary Tony Leung – veteran of Wong Kar Wai and John Woo movies – in a rare Hollywood role. “He’s Brad Pitt, Clooney, De Niro, all roles up into one,” laughs Liu. “He Ocean’s One! He came up to me and shook my hand with both of his, and I just about died in that moment.”

Read Empire’s full Shang-Chi cover feature in the upcoming issue, available on newsstands from Thursday 5 August. Order a copy online here. Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings comes to UK cinemas on 3 September.

'Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings': New Kick-Ass Character Posters Unveiled
Tony Leung is obviously the standout.

By Kristen Santer

Marvel's Phase Four keeps looking better and better, particularly with the new set of character posters for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. These posters really do highlight how Marvel Studios are finally debuting their first Asian superhero lead and cast, and what a cast it is. The new posters showcase Simu Liu's hero Shang-Chi, Awkwafina's Katy, Tony Leung's Mandarin, Meng'er Zhang's Xialing, Michelle Yeoh's Jiang Nan, and the unnamed villain Death Dealer.

Shang-Chi follows the titular hero as he becomes entangled with the mysterious organization known as the Ten Rings, and forced to confront the past he left behind for a normal life in San Francisco. Leung stars as his father, Wenwu aka The Mandarian, who trained Shang-Chi to be an assassin at a young age. Xialing is Shang-Chi's estranged sister who he must reconcile with after abandoning their family. Awkwafina's Katy is Shang-Chi's close friend and a hotel valet, who becomes embroiled in this plot of the film and discovers new aspects of herself. Yeoh's Jiang Nan is a guardian of a mythical city, and this will be her second time in a Marvel film after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The film is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, who is best known as the writer-director of popular indies like Short Term 12 and Just Mercy.

The posters reveal our characters in kick-ass fashion, emphasizing the great martial arts action that we can expect in the film. Yeoh and Leung are old hats at this, and have starred in many wuxia films over their long and venerated careers. We also get a closer look at the Death Dealer, and without giving away too much, it appears that he is a member of the Ten Rings and a former mentor to Shang-Chi. The film itself is about family feud and reconciliation, which is highlighted in its most recent trailer. Marvel films aren't always known for their emotional poignancy, but some good family drama combined with the acting prowess of these veteran and up-and-coming actors does point to one hell of a film.

Unlike Black Widow (and the current drama surrounding it), Shang-Chi will not receive a dual release in theaters and Disney Premier Access. Viewers will only be able to see it in theaters, including a brief theatrical window of 45 days. With the continuation of COVID cases, an uncertain future for theaters, and an expanding Marvel universe, it will be interesting to see how well Shang-Chi performs, and how Disney will continue to roll out their feature films.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings hits theaters on September 3. Check out the new character posters below:
