Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Florian Munteanu reveals some Razor Fist deleted scenes, including a larger role in the final battle and a flashback showing his Ten Rings recruitment...
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Florian Munteanu has launched a new Training Program (find more details on that by clicking here), and we were recently fortunate enough to catch up with "Big Nasty" himself to discuss that and more. We'll have lots to bring you soon, but during the course of our 30-minute conversation, the actor dropped some interesting MCU reveals.
Talking about some key moments involving Razor Fist in the Marvel Studios movie, Florian teased a couple of deleted scenes that will be included on the upcoming Shang-Chi Blu-ray release.
"We had that big end battle, and you [originally] would have seen a bit more there from Razor Fist," he teases in the video below. "I’m looking forward to people seeing that because there was a reason why he replaced his blade with the dragon sword and fights with two swords, but I don’t want to spoil too much and I don’t want to give away too much."
The MCU's newest supervillain also confirmed that there were once plans to show how Razor Fist was recruited to the Ten Rings. He noted that we'd have learned more about his relationship with Wenwu in scenes better explaining his loyalty to the movie's big bad.
"I always call [him] stepdad because, at the end of the day, Wenwu gave him a new life and purpose and a home. He trained him and took him away from the streets. That’s also something you will see in the bonus material," Florian explained. "[Xialing's] his daughter, so there’s more meaning to that than just following a new leader, but we’ll have to see what happens."
It's a real shame that these moments didn't make the final cut, as Razor Fist was definitely one of the best supporting villains we've seen in the MCU for quite some time. We'll have more to share with you From Florian about Shang-Chi's post-credits scene soon, not to mention plenty more about his role as Razor Fist in the wider MCU.
