How many Shang-Chi post credits scenes are there?

Fans couldn’t wait to watch Shang-Chi and now they are being given even more for their money.

Marvel loves a good teaser and this latest movie is no different.

Film fans are treated to TWO scenes after the movie ends.

There is a mid-credits scene and also a post-credits scene.

What do the Shang-Chi post credits scenes mean?

Mid-credits

In Shang-Chi’s mid-credits scene, we see Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) and Katy (Awkwafina) pulled out of their dinner plans by Wong (Benedict Wong).

He needs them for a mysterious new mission, and they are joined by two more Avengers: The Hulk and Captain Marvel.

Dr. Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) appear via hologram to talk about the Ten Rings.

They then explain how the ancestral power wielded by Wenwu (Tony Leung) and Shang raises serious concerns for the heroes about the ancient forces in the universe they have yet to come up against.

Carol then tells them how the Ten Rings appear to have acted as a beacon, sending an indecipherable signal to something, somewhere out in the galaxy.

This seems like a nod to the mystic powers of The Eternals, who we’ll meet when their first film is out on November 5, 2021.

The movie has TWO extra scenes when the credits roll

Post-credits

During Shang-Chi’s post-credits scene, we see Shang’s sister Xialing (Meng’er Zhang) at her family’s fortress in China.

There, we see her going through her childhood things, seemingly reflecting on the dramatic battle that just took place at her mother’s ancestral home.

With Wenwu dead, Xialing is positioned to finally take over her father’s powerful organization.

See, while Xialing and Shang may have teamed up to take down their dad, this scene gives us the sense that Xialing could continue in the franchise as a hero or as a villain.

How can I watch Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings?

Shang-Chi is finally available to watch in cinemas (out September 3, 2021).

But, unlike the recently released Black Widow, the new Marvel movie has not been released on Disney Plus – yet.

Instead it will enjoy a 45-day big screen run before it is available to stream on October 17, 2021.
