Marvel Studios officially announced Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings during their panel earlier tonight and also revealed Simu Liu as its leading man. Plus, the real Mandarin is coming to the MCU!

Marvel Studios' Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has found its star in Simu Liu (Kim's Convenience; Taken), who was actually just cast this past Tuesday in preparation for tonight's San Diego Comic-Con presentation.

Additionally, Kevin Feige confirmed Tony Leung (Internal Affairs) has joined the film as The Mandarin - the real Mandarin - and he also revealed Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians) has been cast in an undisclosed role, which is certainly intriguing, to say the least.
