Five alternative concepts for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ post-credits scene have been made public through a new Marvel Studios art book. Two thrilling post-credits scenes from Shang-Chi helped to establish the MCU and the martial arts franchise’s future. One included the passing of the Ten Rings to Shang-sister Chi’s Xialing from her deceased father Wenwu, while the other featured considerably more fascinating and revolutionary MCU ties. At the Sanctum Sanctorum, Shang-Chi and his closest friend Katy met Wong while Captain Marvel and Bruce Banner were holographically present. The group discussed a signal from the Ten Rings that may have set up a significant story element for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
Five additional Shang-Chi post-credits settings are revealed by Marvel
The new Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings: The Art Of The Cinema book was just published by Marvel Studios. Included within were a few original interpretations of the post-credits sequence in which the main character met with Katy, Wong, Captain Marvel, and Bruce Banner to talk about a puzzling signal emanating from the Ten Rings.
Several ideas for the scenario were imagined in a variety of wildly dissimilar settings, one of which had a vibrant, nightclub-like environment.
The second design contains a lot of colours, just like the previous one, but this one has more odd forms and what seems like an expanded Ten Rings.
In contrast to what was seen in the final cut, another appeared to take place in a considerably larger space with a larger holographic display.
The final idea, with vivid wizardry from Wong, seems to be the most accurate to what actually happened in The Legend of the Ten Rings.
Each of these ideas for Shang-post-credits Chi’s scene has a strikingly unique visual aesthetic. While some of these opulent and vibrant designs would have been fascinating to see on screen, the Sanctum library’s ultimate choice is far more in line with the designs and colour palettes connected to the MCU’s magic. The cameoing Avengers are conspicuously absent from two of these drawings, although Shang-Chi, Wong, and Katy are present in the majority of them. This may be due to the notion centred upon broad Avengers appearances at the time rather than a choice on which of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes may participate in the council.
The post-credits stinger was previously discussed by Shang-Chi and Avengers 5 director Destin Daniel Cretton, who noted that it underwent “so many tweaks and updates” based on the other MCU events occurring at the time, with the story being “dependent on what those characters are doing” in other projects. Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel was an early candidate for the Sanctum Sanctorum council, but the MCU filmmaker said they weren’t sure “it could make reasonable sense that Brie is there” – a concern that may have contributed to the choice to have the heroes appear as holograms rather than in person:
“We speculated that Brie might be there, but we were unaware of any plausible explanations. It obviously helps that these characters are now holograms, as that allows them to quickly leave and return to whatever crazy situation they’re in. Even now, I’m not entirely aware of what they’re going through. I only know that when I pitch ideas, they are only rejected if they don’t fit with other concepts that are being developed for those characters.“
