When it comes to movie trailers, the usually happening Super Bowl 2021 was rather subdued this year. Though we did get an exciting promo of Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Marvel fans were also expecting the studio to drop promos for the upcoming MCU films, Eternals and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Sadly, that hasn't happened yet, and we have to contend with the tease of the new adventures of Captain America's buddies. While Shang-Chi fans were disappointed by this, the lead star Simu Liu's tweet on this would leave them with much hope.

In his tweet, the Chinese-born Canadian actor wrote, "It’s gonna be so good when it comes out guys I PROMISE. Just not today... just not today," while also sharing a gif of him frowning. The thing to note here is that Liu didn't exactly mention Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in his tweet. But fans presume he was addressing the collective disappointment as the film was trending on social media, and mentioned that in his replies.

Also It looks like Simu Liu himself was disappointed that there was no Shang-Chi trailer during Super Bowl 2021, as he posted a frowny emoji earlier.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 9, 2021, and since the release month is not exactly that far away, fans had expected Disney to drop the first trailer of the film during the weekend. However, with the release of Black Widow still up in the air - tentatively hitting in theatres on May 7, 2021, after being delayed for an year due to the pandemic, Disney might be playing it carefully with Shang-Chi.
