Is Shang Chi In Multiverse?

Fans are curious as to whether Shang Chi will be appearing in the movie. Sorry to break your bubble but it won’t be the case this time. Many people wish to see the chemistry between two amazing characters and are curious about their power when they fight alongside each other. Since the storyline showed Dr. Strange and Wong receiving help from sorcerers to help fight against Wanda, fans highly anticipated the cameo.

If this was to be the case the fight between the sorcerers would have been a spectacle to watch as Shang Chi is a promising character with a lot of power. Well, nevertheless we have more opportunities for watching them together in future projects. Shang Chi is a relatively new character and is in a need of more exposure. This could be a blessing in disguise as a cameo would only mean limited scenes and wouldn’t give much insight into the character. When placed with other important cameos of other characters who have been there for a while now, Shang Chi still needs a foothold to be able to start with them.
