Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings have been released this weekend but how many end-credits scenes does it have?
Apart from backing up the $23 billion Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man (2008) cemented the ritual of end-credits scenes as a hallmark for the upcoming superhero movies. Keeping some exceptions aside like Avengers: Endgame, every other MCU film has included at least one stinger each. Even the recent Marvel and Disney+ releases are found to be following the act. With that said, there arises a big question on whether or not Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will have end-credits scenes? And if yes, how many?
Co-written and directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings stars Simu Liu as Shang-Chi. He is forced to confront his father and his past when he is drawn into the Ten Rings introduced in Iron Man. Simu is joined in the cast by Michelle Yeoh, Meng’er Zhang, Florian Munteanu, Yuen Wah, Zach Cherry, Awkwafina, Tony Leung, Fala Chen, Benedict Wong, Ronny Chieng, and Dallas Liu.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings boast not just one but two stingers. It is absolutely in line with the Marvel Cinematic Universe films such as Spiderman: Homecoming, Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Spiderman: Far from Home, and Captain Marvel.
No, we are not going to disclose any spoiler. However, we can hint that the mid-credits scene of the film ties up and relates Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings with a broader part of the MCU. Not only that, even the end-credits scene tees up to an anticipated sequel. It clearly depicts how fans would like to stick to their seats for the credits scene. Surely, no Marvel Cinematic Fan would like to sneak out early anyway.
Following the release of Black Widow in the theatres and on Disney+ in July, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is the first Marvel film to get its theatrical release exclusively during the global pandemic era. While fans might feel uncomfortable with venturing back into movie theaters post COVID-19, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will also arrive digitally after 45 days.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings have released over the Labor Day weekend with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 91%. This is what sets the bars of expectations from the film. The pre-release predictions about the films have put Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on a course to make a collection of around $45 million to $50 million in the first four days of its release. If it happens, the film will break the weekend collection record of the 2007 release Halloween ($30.6 million). With that said, while Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings could possibly earn a good number at the box office, COVID-19 and its uncertainties might impact the projections significantly than usual.
