More ‘Shang-Chi’ Marvel Legends Leaks Confirm Family Ties
Over the past few days we’ve had multiple leaks surrounding merchandise from the upcoming Marvel Studios film Shang-Chi and The legend of The Ten Rings. Amongst those leaks were closer looks at Legos, Funko Pops! and quite recently the upcoming Marvel Legends figures based on characters within the film, offering our best looks yet at Shang-Chi and Wenwu, aka The Mandarin from the upcoming film. We’ve now got a closer look at the final two figures from the film in the upcoming wave, that of Xialang and the mysterious Death Dealer.
Our first close look at Xialang offers more details on her ties to the titular hero, revealing that she is indeed the estranged sister of the martial artist and another child of the Mandarin. When Shang-Chi suddenly shows up in her life, Xialang, played by Meng’er Zhang, must choose between the solitary life she’s created for herself or join her brother in the fight against the Ten Rings.
The next description gives less detail on the character but sets him up to be quite the worthy adversary for Shang-Chi in his fight against the Ten Rings group. Not much is known about the Death Dealer but if he lives up to his name he would definitely not be someone to take lightly.
