Warning: This article contains spoilers for ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’

“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” has officially opened in theaters, and now it’s time to talk about the film’s ending.

‘Shang-Chi’ ending, explained

“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” ends with Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) and Katy (Awkwafina) explaining their entire journey to their friends. It’s a journey of mystic abilities and magical beings, so clearly their friends don’t understand any of it nor do they believe it.

Then, out of nowhere, the two are approached by Wong (Benedict Wong), who previously appeared in the “Doctor Strange” and “Avengers” movies.

Who is Wong?

Wong has often been the sidekick of Doctor Strange, who has acted as a logical and sound voice compared to Strange’s risky and dangerous behavior.

Wong then asks Shang and Katy to travel with them. The trio then disappears into a mystic arts circle created by Wong, a signal that the two are headed off to meet with Doctor Strange, if not other members of the Avengers squad.

What the ending means

This is clearly a sign that Shang-Chi is going to be accepted into the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe storyline and that the film doesn’t exist in a silo.
