The latest Shang-Chi spot below shows Razorfist in action. The character is clearly working for Shang-Chi’s father Wenwu, and has been shown in previous trailers. Though, some of this footage is unseen and gives a bit more on that bus fight sequence we’ve seen a little of already. Check it out below.

I’m genuinely not sure whether having a hand that could just hold a sword would make Razorfist a better fighter? It might look cool in a movie, but in real life my money would be on someone with two hands and actual sword (assuming a matching skill level). I’m excited to see what we get with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. However, I kinda hope they’ve kept all the best fighting scenes out of the trailers because the little bits we have seen haven’t been all that cool to me. Marvel usually does keep a lot back, unlike some other studios with trailers. We really have not seen much of the fighting tournament other than brief little glimpses, so that’s the part I’m hyped most about.
It feels like we’ve seen footage from all three acts of Shang-Chi. However far more has been shown of what looks to be the first act like above. That’s always a good sign. Only recently did we see anything which seems to be from the third act, more than likely a Father/Son showdown. However, that remains to be seen.
What do you think of this brief glimpse of Razorfist in action? For me I get the feeling he’s merely a henchman and won’t prove too difficult a challenge for Shang-Chi. Though I’m guessing the opponents will increase in power as he moves along his journey.
Sound off below about anything to do with the latest Shang-Chi spot.
