Shang-Chi: The questions that we still ask ourselves about the film

When it was released in theaters, Shang-Chi surprised at the box office by exceeding in particular Black Widow. Reason why Marvel Studios immediately thought of the sequel: a second installment is already in development according to a new report. While fans are obviously eager for Shang and Katy’s next adventures, they also expect Shang-Chi 2 to answer their many unanswered questions, here are the ones.

WHERE DO THE TEN RINGS COME AND WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF THEIR POWER?

If the rumors were that the Ten Rings were of eternal origin, Chloe Zhao’s film has come to contradict that idea, at least for now. In the meantime, we still don’t know much about these artifacts found long years ago by Wenwu, Shang’s father. It is difficult to determine if they are supernatural or extraterrestrial, nor what source of energy they come from.. The Ten Rings could come from another dimension, or even from space. For the time being, it is total vagueness.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO TREVOR?

Trevor Slattery’s involvement in Shang-Chi was perhaps the film’s worst-kept secret. However, fans were delighted to find the crazy character within the plot. What many lamented, however, is that its story arc was not completed by the end of the film. During the Ta Lo dwellers’ war against the Soulsucker, Trevor played dead to stay alive. If his ruse seems to have worked, we do not know what happened to him afterwards.. Did he stay in the village? Did he go to earth to start an acting career? The mystery is complete.

ARE SHANG AND KATY IN LOVE?

The nature of Katy and Shang’s relationship piques the curiosity of many fans. While they are introduced as friends throughout the plot, many of their loved ones want the two protagonists to get together. At the end of the film, a scene lets us think it’s on the right track, but it remains to be seen if this is part of the production’s plans.. The director gave a little hint at a press conference saying “that all great friendships are potential crushes”. Katy and Shang may become more than just friends in the sequel!

WHY IS XIALING REVOLVING NOW?

Finally, we really wonder why the post-credits scene showed a whole different Xialing than the one we saw in the finale of Shang-Chi. The hero’s sister helped him defeat demons within the kingdom of Ta Lo, ultimately reforming the army of the Ten Rings now that his father is gone. It’s hard to understand why she seems to have changed her mind so abruptly, even if one imagines that her childhood still torments her so much.. Xialing wants to prove that she has her place as a leader, even as a woman in a country where they don’t really have a big place. While waiting to learn more about these different intrigues, Marvel unveils the timeline of the film in the MCU.
