As well as giving Shang-Chi and the Ten Rings it's full title and a brand new logo, Marvel Studios also announced that relatively unknown Canadian actor Simu Liu would be playing the title character, with Awkwafina set to play a supporting role.

Some more huge MCU news out of San Diego Comic-Con. Find out what we learned at about Shang-Chi at Comic-Con.

Tony Leung will play the Mandarin, joining a cast that includes Awkwafina and USA newcomer and Chinese actor Simu Liu.

"I was cast on Tuesday, I screen-tested Sunday in NY and this is just the craziest dream".

Iconic actor Tony Leung will play the Mandarin - the real Mandarin, as opposed to the doppelganger in Iron Man 3. "But what's really cool is I grew up with friends who were Japanese, Chinese, Caucasian, Filipino, Portuguese, Korean, that's the norm in Hawaii".

Is Nokia working on an Android-powered feature phone?
Since there has been no word on such an OS from Google or a phone from HMD Global, we suggest you take this with a grain of salt. It has been added that the upcoming OS won't be having an app switcher until unless there's a dedicated hardware button for it.

The character Shang-Chi first appeared in Special Marvel Edition #15 (December 1973) by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin.

"It's so exciting to see Kevin and this wonderful team begin to build an MCU that reflects all the lovely colors I see in this room", said Cretton. He's also been a member of The Avengers and Heroes for Hire, the latter alongside fellow kung fu masters Daughters of the Dragon.

Shang-Chi is just one of a slew of announcements to come out of Marvel's Hall H presentation at Comic Con.

It will be the second major film of Marvel Studios' Phase Four.
