Released Thursday during NBA Countdown on ESPN, the newest trailer sees Shang-Chi battling the criminal empire headed by his forsaken father Wenwu (Tony Leung), a.k.a. the feared Mandarin, the shadowy leader of the Ten Rings organization. In true Marvel fashion, Shang-Chi kicks up a cameo or two when the Abomination returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a roaring cage match with Doctor Strange’s Wong (Benedict Wong).

Shang-Chi has the “best action [Marvel has] ever done,” producer Jonathan Schwartz previously told Entertainment Weekly, saying that in the Destin Daniel Cretton-directed actioner, “Every punch is meaningful, every fighting style is meaningful, and the story is told visually in such a great way.”
