A new report about Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings allegedly reveals which character Awkwafina will play as well as some interesting information about the Mandarin.
FandomWire reports Awkwafina will play a character from Marvel Comics named Fah Lo Suee. Although Fah Lo Suee is Shang-Chi’s sister in the comics, Awkwafina’s version of the character will reportedly be a potential love interest for him. What’s more, she will be the Mandarin’s daughter.
The plot details also indicate Tony Chiu-Wai Leung’s The Mandarin will have a long history with Shang-Chi. In the film, the Mandarin ran an orphanage for children with special gifts, which is where Shang-Chi was raised.
Fans recently got their first look at stars Simu Liu and Awkwafina in Shang-Chi from a set video that appears to show their two characters approaching a facility together.
