Meet the Master of Kung Fu, Shang-Chi.

Marvel’s newest movie hero actually dates back to the 1970s, when Shang-Chi was the star of the long-running series Master of Kung Fu. His first movie is titled Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and it sees the character (played by Simu Liu) reluctantly drawn into the world of his father, The Mandarin, played by Tony Leung. Cue numerous action and fight sequences, including one where he saves the passengers on an out of control San Francisco city bus.

The film’s first trailer just debuted online. Watch it here:

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
