Shang-Chi Easter Egg Cleverly Featured In Latest She-Hulk Trailer

How was a Shang-Chi easter egg featured in the She-Hulk trailer? Hulk’s role in the MCU seemed to be in jeopardy following the events of The Incredible Hulk. She-Hulk, on the other hand, will make her Disney+ debut this summer. Jennifer Walters, Bruce Banner’s cousin and an attorney at law will be the focus of this half-hour legal comedy.

Tatiana Maslany’s Walters will be joined by Bruce Banner along with other familiar faces from the MCU. Emil Blonsky and Wong are two of these well-known characters

While this isn’t the first time Wong and Abomination have popped up together in a Marvel film, it is the first time they have appeared in the same film. The Shang-Chi cameo may have seemed inconsequential at the time, but it hinted at something bigger.

The first complete She-Hulk: Attorney at Law trailer featured an easter egg reference to Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, as pointed out by The Direct reader Hubert Stępień.

It appears in the teaser that Tim Roth’s Emil Blonsky (aka Abomination) is housed within the same type of prison cell he and Wong teleported to in Shang-Chi.

Designed to house the villain from The Incredible Hulk, this prison features bright red support beams and large panes of glass.

It appears that Wong has opened a portal for the two characters, revealing a cell similar to the one seen in the She-Hulk trailer.

Wong VS Abomination

There have only been a few connections between the Disney+ streaming side of the MCU and the big-screen mega-blockbusters thus far in the Disney+ era of the MCU. Naturally, the plot of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which was connected to the events of WandaVision last year, altered all of that completely.

Even though this doesn’t appear to be anything more than a simple move to aid in continuity, it’s cool to see Marvel Studios laying the groundwork for their future projects all over the place with this one. There was absolutely no way that Shang-Chi would connect directly with She-Hulk nearly a year later when it debuted in September 2021.

As a result, it is what makes Marvel Studios’ MCU so unique. At any given time, a piece of the franchise’s rich history could come back to serve the story at hand. Or perhaps suggestions for something in the future could be made. Not many Hollywood names can pull it off, but Marvel does.
