Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is rapidly approaching production in Australia, and soon there will be more people added to the cast. We’ve already heard that Marvel is looking for other heroes who could be Clive Reston and Leiku Wu, but now it looks like Shang-Chi’s adversaries are being cast.
While the Mandarin will be the primary villain, it looks like Shang-Chi will have to go through several other villains from his comic before he gets to the big bad. According to casting information, Marvel is looking for these villains for the movie:
Steel Claw: There’s no real equivalent of this character in the comics, and whoever is cast will need to know martial arts. It’s possible this is going to be Tiger-Claw, who is a big Shang-Chi villain.
Moving Shadow, Razor-Fist, and Ghostmaker: These three are villains from the Shang-Chi comic, although Ghostmaker’s name seems to be modified from the comic’s Ghost-Maker.
This may sound like a lot of villains, but a big rumor is that the movie may involve a Bloodsport-style underground fight tournament; and that’s where Shang-Chi could face off against a lineup of characters such as this.
