Marvel boss Kevin Feige has confirmed that the Abomination and Wong will face off in the forthcoming superhero movie Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings.
Eagle eyed fans expressed their excitement earlier this week, when the latest trailer showed a quick snippet of the Hulk’s nemesis (Tim Roth) and what looked like Doctor Strange character Wong.
“Some fans said, ‘This looks like a character they hadn’t seen in many years named the Abomination, fighting a character that looks like Wong.’ And I can say that the reason it looks like that is because that is Abomination fighting Wong,” Feige told Rotten Tomatoes.
“[It’s] a fun thing to have a character that we haven’t had on screen in over a decade show up again in the MCU,” Feige added. “And to see fans on that little tag of the trailer recognise that and embrace that is great fun.”
