The newest Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings trailer confirms the film will have a Mortal Kombat-lite theme.

In the trailer, the rings are bracelets, similar to the metal training rings that practitioners of Chinese martial arts use.

In the comic books, television, and video games from the past, the rings of Iron Man’s arch-nemesis were finger rings.

Each one of the rings, occupying one of the fingers of the Mandarin, had a different, devastatingly powerful effect.

The Motion Picture Rating (MPAA) has given the film a PG-13 rating. It is unlikely that we will see the bloody fatalities that the recent Mortal Kombat film.

The tournament would also involve the sorcerer Wong (Benedict Wong) facing off against the super-strong Abomination.

Based on the action from the Shang-Chi trailers, it appears these rings or bracelets are activated by martial arts forms.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings kicks into theaters on September 3, 2021.
