Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is one of the most exciting things to witness for the fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This was because of many reasons that the movie was able to deal with and deliver to the fans. The first one of these things has to be the way that the project gave us a completely original Marvel origin story with a character that has not appeared before in the MCU. The movie was also successfully able to introduce us to characters who have don’t have a comic book origin. At the same time, it also did justice to various inaccuracies in the comic books for a certain character. But the movie was also able to give us a look at a longtime Shang-Chi enemy Razor Fist even though we didn’t get to see much of him. Let’s take a look at what Florian Munteanu had to say about the Razor Fist Deleted Scene revealing his origin story.
Characters In MCU
Marvel has always been able to deliver us with side characters who have appeared later in the MCU hinting at the possibility of the character being a much bigger part than previously shown to be. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings are also responsible for probably a lot of such characters. This includes characters who made a certain impact on the audience in the movie.
Amongst these, there has to be the character of Razor Fist from the movie. Wenwu was the primary antagonist of the movie but Razor Fist was his righthand man with quite a few interesting fight sequences. We wondered what else we might get to see from the character but there was not a lot to explore. But at the same time, we can be sure that the end of the movie teased what else could be in store for the character as he stands next to Xialing as she takes over the Ten Rings.
We can be sure that there’s a lot yet for Florian Munteanu’s character to be explored in the upcoming projects of MCU. It seems that we might actually get more about the character sooner than expected with the home release of the movie. According to the actor, amongst the scenes that were left on the cutting room floor, there was supposed to be a scene that would have given us an insight into the character.
According to an interview with ComicBookMovie.com, Munteanu said,
We had that big end battle, and you [originally] would have seen a bit more there from Razor Fist. I’m looking forward to people seeing that because there was a reason why he replaced his blade with the dragon sword and fights with two swords, but I don’t want to spoil too much and I don’t want to give away too much.
He further explained,
I always call [him] stepdad because, at the end of the day, Wenwu gave him a new life and purpose and a home. He trained him and took him away from the streets. That’s also something you will see in the bonus material. [Xialing’s] his daughter, so there’s more meaning to that than just following a new leader, but we’ll have to see what happens.
While the ending of the movie confirmed that we will give us a chance to explore a lot about the Ten Rings. The Ten Rings might end up becoming a battle arena like the ones we saw in Macau with Xialing. This could be the major comeback for both Razor Fist and Xialing. Since Razor Fist is an essential fighter based on what we saw in the movie there’s a possibility he might even end up being one of the essential fighters in the arena.
