Announced earlier today by The New York Times in an exclusive interview with writer Gene Luen Yang, Marvel Super Hero Shang-Chi will be getting a brand-new limited series this June. Known for his Eisner Award-winning work, American Born Chinese - the first graphic novel ever to be nominated for a National Book Award – Yang will be teaming up with artists Dike Ruan (Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man) and Phillip Tan (Black Order) to craft the modern adventures of Marvel’s beloved master of the martial arts, with an all-new costume designed by artist Jim Cheung! Yang could not suppress his excitement for the new series. “I mean, it’s Shang-Chi,” he told The New York Times. “He’s probably the most prominent Asian — I guess he’s Asian-American now since he’s moved over here — Asian-American super hero.” In this new series, Shang-Chi’s fight for justice will collide with his past. When the hero finds himself pulled back into the fold, no one will be ready for what will be unleashed. With a target on his back after the revitalization of his father’s secret society, the balance of power will shift in an epic tale of succession, family, and betrayal. “The basic idea that his father is a supervillain is still there,” said Yang. “Zheng Zhu has been around a very long time. He has other kids besides Shang-Chi, so we’re going to explore some of those sibling relationships.” Equipped with incredible knowledge and skills in the martial arts, Shang-Chi’s action-packed exploits have been thrilling readers for almost 50 years. Since his introduction, Shang-Chi has become a breakout hero in the Marvel Universe, appearing in multiple series as well as his own successful and acclaimed solo run.

Destin Daniel Cretton has been picked up by Marvel Studios to helm the Shang-Chi project. The project will feature the studio's first Asian lead and is based on the classic character known for his martial arts prowess. The script is being penned by Wonder Woman 1984 screenwriter Dave Callaham and will update the character for modern audiences. Marvel is said to be planning on assembling a largely Asian-American and Asian cast for this feature. Shang-Chi first appeared in 1973’s Special Marvel Edition No. 15 and was created by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin. The character being born in China to a Chinese father and a white American mother was trained as a martial artist assassin by his father, the infamous pulp villain Fu Manchu, but later became a hero after rebelling against his father's ways. Shang-Chi was a hit character in the '70s, and recently saw a revival as a member of The Avengers during 2012’s Marvel Now! Publishing event. Marvel head Kevin Feige is producing, with Marvel’s Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Jonathan Schwartz executive producing. Source: THR
