Shang-Chi Deleted Scenes Disclose Connection To Iron-Man And More MCU Stories

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings have become one of Marvel's outstanding superheroes movie this year. If you haven't seen the movie about the MCU's first Asian superhero, it's now available for streaming on Disney+ and will be released on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray soon. To encourage fans to purchase the DVDs, 11 deleted sequences from the movie are included.
They will almost certainly be accessible on the streaming platform at some point, but die-hard fans hardly have to wait any longer. MCU Master's YouTube channel features a collection that contains all 11 deleted scenes. If you're intrigued about the sequences, some of which would've significantly shifted the storyline of the movie. Keep reading to find out which ones should have been included and which should've been cut.

Scenes that should’ve made the cut:

This scene appears genuine when Shang-Chi expresses his regret for not being with her while she needed him the most, but we also watch Xialing being hesitant and expressing that she can't really forgive him because emotional scars don't recover that easily with a simple apology.

They’re Waiting
This sequence expands on the post-credit scene from the movie, extending to the 'Apology' scene. Shang-Chi and Katy are seen video calling Xialing, indicating that she has accepted her brother and that they have rejoined and reunited as a family.

Postcard continues Shang-Chi and Wenwu's chat before dinner, in which Wenwu gets to know whether Shang-Chi has gotten the Dragon postcard he had sent. The father explains that he wanted the siblings to be together without all of the conflicts. This scenario humanizes Wenwu by demonstrating that he genuinely loves his wife and children but has difficulty expressing his feelings.

Two Sons
Another moment that shows Wenwu's milder side, rather than the vicious gang boss we see in other scenes. Wenwu compares Shang-Chi to Razor-Fist and discusses how he fostered the latter because he noticed in the Romanian youngster a strong determination that resembled real his child.

Do It Yourself
Something more than a necessary inclusion, this sequence should be viewed as an easter egg which further ties this movie to the MCU. Wenwu discusses doing some operations in Afghanistan and references Raza, who kidnapped Tony Stark during the first Iron Man movie. This would have been another comic-accurate 'crossover,' as Mandarin is Iron Man's mortal enemy in the comics.

It's not really essential, but it's entertaining. In a car, we see Katy and Trevor, as Trevor attempts to motivate Katy. "Some are born great, some accomplish greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them," Trevor explains.

Scenes that are better off deleted:

Pep Talk
We are grateful that moment was deleted. Razor-Fist is calming Katy as they hide on the battlefield in a déjà vu-like situation, and she is afraid to continue. This sequence immediately reminded me of the one in Avengers: Age of Ultron where Hawkeye gave Scarlet Witch a similar pep talk.

Take A Shot
This sequence depicts Katy's nervousness before filming the Dweller-in-Darkness. This moment would have rendered the next scene less dramatic and exciting because we witness Katy go through various feelings before 'taking the shot' at the monster.

I’m Here
This scene depicts the best-friend pair inebriated as Katy has an honest conversation with Shang-Chi, telling him that she will listen if he even wants to talk about his background. Nevertheless, we've already seen enough scenes that demonstrate Katy and Shang-friendship, Chi's so this sequence doesn't have a significant impact on the storyline.

Just Friends
This sequence would have been better avoided because the 2 characters' chemistry appears platonic throughout the film. It would be intriguing to see whether they explore the possibility of becoming a romance in future films, but for now, Shang-Chi and Katy appear to be best friends.

Escape Tunnel
This one is definitely for giggles, as Trevor reveals a Shawshank Redemption-style tunnel in the wall that allows them to escape. "Turns out I needed your father as much as he needed me," he says when asked why he hasn't escaped. Katy explains why his reasoning is flawed and reminds him that he is still jailed.
