There is a short part that shows the superhero costumes of the movie. We can see Chan’s Sersi, McHugh’s Sprite, Nanjiani’s Kingo, and Jolie’s Thena all together in the ending shots.
The footage also shows Hayek playing Ajak on top of a horse in the plain lands. Although this short footage built the excitement to another level, there is a lot more to come. There is a lot more to be revealed in the upcoming days.
We are not sure when the first trailer of the movie will release. It is assumed that the film will come to theatres a month after the release of Shang-Chi. Hence it seems that the trailer or full teaser will launch 4 weeks after Shang-Chi’s trailer has launched. Marvel has Black Widow and Shang-Chi coming before the movie. So it will keep itself busy with the promotion of the two movies first.
Zhao is working o making the final cut scenes of the movie and finish it completely. We never know; the trailer might just come after all these are done. So fans will have to wait until some things are revealed in the upcoming times. Till then, the first reveal of the movie has created a lot of excitement and expectation from the fans.
