Phase 4 of the MCU will finally bring a new title character to the roster in September with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, after numerous Disney+ series and the long-awaited Black Widow standalone feature.

Simu Liu plays Shang-Chi, Marvel’s Master of Martial Arts, who is forced to confront his family about their links to the secret Ten Rings group after attempting to live a regular life.

But, as is typical of Marvel, something old always ties to something new, and Shang-connections Chi’s go all the way back to the Iron Man Trilogy.

Kevin Feige reveals the reason behind a fake mandarin appears in Iron Man 3 in a recent interview

“That’s what’s fun about the MCU at this stage. We can do something like Shang-Chi, introducing a brand-new hero into the MCU and into the world at large. But that subtitle, The Legend of the Ten Rings, actually connects it back to the very beginning of the MCU, the Ten Rings being the organization that kidnapped Tony Stark at the very beginning of Iron Man one. And that organization was inspired by a character called the Mandarin in the comics.”

“And going back to Iron Man one: We’ve been talking about that when we do bring this character to the screen, [we] only wanted to do it when we felt we could do it supreme justice and really showcase the complexity of this character, which frankly we couldn’t do in an Iron Man movie because an Iron Man movie is about Iron Man; an Iron Man movie is about Tony Stark.”

Marvel agreed to a strategy that enabled them to utilize the Mandarin moniker while saving the real figure for a later time since they didn’t want such an iconic villain to be overshadowed by Tony Stark and his solo flicks.

The incompetent Trevor Slattery was only a front for the film’s real villain Aldrich Killian, and Trevor Slattery was played by renowned actor Ben Kingsley.

The unexpected, if funny, Ben Kingsley’s surprise in Iron Man 3 did not please all Marvel fans. It’s difficult not to like Feige’s view that Tony Stark’s solo movie would have eclipsed the Mandarin as a character, and that he intended to save him for something greater down the road.

And, despite the fact that it took eight years and a half-dozen films, Feige seemed to believe he chose the perfect film and actor for the Mandarin, especially because the villain in the film looks to be Shang-Chi’s father

And, given Kevin Feige’s enthusiasm for Tony Leung’s hiring, this Mandarin might be one of the finest MCU villains yet. On September 3, 2021, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be released in cinemas.
