In a literal sense Iron Man – The Iron Man – 93% started the MCU, that was the movie that introduced us to the universe that the other movies would later expand. That said, literally what started it all was the post-credit scene from the first Tony Stark movie. The fans understood that we would eventually see an Avengers movie when Nick Fury appeared in front of the heroic millionaire and told him that he is not the only superhero that exists on the planet.

That scene genre the tradition that those kinds of moments gave us a preamble to what the future would bring us in subsequent films of the same universe, but it was also what gave us for the first time the impression that the character did not live in a world. isolated, but was part of something much bigger and could be explored in more Marvel movies. It is one of the moments that had the most impact in today’s superhero cinema.
Why do we bring it up? Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings – 95% gave us a post-credit scene that was compared to that of that Tony Stark movie by Kevin Feige himself. This is what he said in a conversation he had with Comic Book:
We recommend you: Marvel just officially announced that Shang-Chi is a member of the Avengers
Well, we don’t want to spoil anything, but I think the end of this movie is going to give a pretty good idea of the direction in terms of, at least, how important and how vital and how direct Shang is entering. -Chi in this world. This is going to remind us of when Nick Fury in the Iron Man 1 post-credit scene told Tony Stark ‘You’re part of a bigger universe, you just don’t know it yet.’ And without revealing anything, a very similar thing is going to happen to Shang at the end of this movie.
The scene in question is a reunion of Shang-Chi and Katy with Wong, Captain Marvel, and Bruce Banner. In other words, it’s a meeting with the Avengers and one in which it was made clear that they are now part of that team. The scientist basically told them “Welcome to the circus” and that was taken by several as his welcome to the team of heroes.
The point is that for Comic Book the theme of that meeting may be a reference to a classic Marvel villain that could appear in the sequel to Shang-chi. Who are we talking about? From Fin Fang Foom, whose species are the creators of the ten rings in the comics. Here’s what that site had to say about it:
Wong told everyone that the rings are calling for an unknown entity. One that could be an interdimensional entity, like a Makluan named Fin Fang Foo. In the Marvel comics, the Makluans are aliens who take the form of dragons and who are responsible for being the creators of the ten rings. Since Wenwu (Tony Leung) is no longer the bearer of the mystical bracelets, perhaps they are calling home to potentially be picked up, which would mean that we could see Foom and other potential Makluans in the inevitable sequel.
The only problem with that theory is that there are those who have played the dragon of Ta Lo; that is, to the Great Protector, like the MCU version of Fin Fang Foom, but we cannot rule out that the true version is still an alien who wants to get his artifact back. We cannot deny that the fact that they are sending a signal seems to indicate that they are calling the next villain of the character or, perhaps, of the Avengers. We will have to wait a few years to find out, but it is certainly something that gives a lot to think about.
Don’t miss out on reading: Shang-Chi has not yet released in China and that could mean a risk for its worldwide box office.
