Shang-Chi: what to remember from the post-credits scenes of the new Marvel movie?

As is the tradition of Marvel films, “Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings” contains a double bonus for fans, namely two post-credits scenes. Here is what they contain and announce.

WARNING – The article below contains spoilers, as it discusses the content of the post-credits scenes of “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”, which are related to its outcome. So please go your way if you haven’t seen the film yet.

The Covid-19 pandemic may have changed the release schedules of blockbusters or how they are broadcast, but some things are not changing. Like the fact of having to stay until the end of the credits of each Marvel film, under penalty of missing bonuses often intended to teaser what awaits the spectators in the near future. With its two additional scenes, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is no exception.

ETERNAL RINGS?

As in Spider-Man Far From Home, the first post-credits scene is a direct continuation of the very last sequence in the story. After picking them up in the restaurant where they were with their friends, we find Wong (Benedict Wong) studying the famous magic rings with Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) and Katy (Awkwafina). And two renowned consultants, who are none other than Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson).

But no one manages to establish precisely their origin or the time in which they were made. However, it is certain that they predate the time when Wenwu (Tony Leung) seized them before keeping them for a millennium. In view of the next installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this clue points to The Eternals, which will make their debut in our theaters on November 3.

Is there a connection between Shang-Chi and the Eternals?

Because if they are not mentioned in the post-credits scene of Shang-Chi, the heroes of Chloé Zhao’s film (Oscar winner a few months ago thanks to Nomadland) belong to a very old race of human beings who arrived on Earth 7000 years ago in order to protect it. They may therefore be associated with the creation of the rings, and the mysterious beacon they contain will then make the link between the two MCU games.

While waiting to be fixed, let’s note this funny detail: the presence of Captain Marvel in this scene allows Brie Larson to appear in the credits of a film of Destiny Daniel Cretton for the fourth time in a row. Not content with having offered her one of her most beautiful roles thanks to States of Grace, the director made her his favorite actress. So much so that when he was hired for Shang-Chi, many wondered if he would manage to lead her in the MCU as well. The answer is therefore yes, and it will not have taken long.

“If I can work with Brie on each film, I would be very happy”, answers the filmmaker on this subject. “It just so happened that it could have been done here, because it made sense to the story of her making a cameo.”

THE LADY OF THE RINGS

The second post-credits scene is right after the credits. It focuses on Xialing (Meng’er Zhang) and is, for once, quite clear. We discover that Shang-Chi’s sister has taken over from Wenwu to become the new head of the Ten Rings organization (changing the color of her flag in the process and opting for red instead of black).

As Razorfist (Florian Munteanu) has become her henchman, she sits on her new throne as the camera pulls back to show us warriors training in the courtyard of the organization’s HQ, which is rebuilt little by little, before the following card appears: “The Ten Rings will return”. But where ? And when ?

What future for Xialing in the MCU?

Logic would, of course, have them back in a Shang-Chi 2, but as of now, no sequel has officially been ordered. The characters can also appear elsewhere, on the small screen as well as on the big screen, and we could maybe see them again sooner than we expected. And find out if Xialing will stay on the good side, with her brother, or if she will really take over from her father, by switching to the dark side.
