‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ will star Simu Liu in a leading role while reportedly Awkwafina will play the role of Shang-Chi’s sister, Fah Lo Suee. 

For the unversed, Shang-Chi is a skilled martial artist who was raised in an isolated compound located in China and trained by his father Fu Manchu. Her father was a Chinese crime lord and immortal sorcerer who repeatedly attempted to conquer the world. When Shang-Chi was finally allowed to venture into the outside world to do his father’s bidding, he learned about his father’s evil ways and faked his own death before embarking on a mission to take down Fu Manchu’s criminal empire.
