Florian Munteanu, star of ‘Shang-Chi,’ predicts the future of Razor Fist in the Marvel Universe (exclusive)
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which was released in theaters over the summer, is now available to stream on Disney(plus).
Razor Fist, played by Florian Munteanu, was one of the standout characters in the Marvel film.
PopCulture.com recently spoke with the 31-year-old actor about his predictions for the future of Razor Fist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“I want to go back to where we started with that character,” Munteanu told PopCulture.
“I’d like to demonstrate that he’s more than a soldier.”

People would love to see Razor Fist not only as a fighting machine, but also as a character with a lot of heart.”
Shang-Chi is likely to get a sequel based on how the film ended.
When asked about Shang-Chi 2, however, Munteanu remained tight-lipped.
“After all, we’re all aware of how secretive Marvel executives are,” Munteanu explained.
“Even after Shang-Chi was released, they didn’t reveal who was cast in the roles until late in 2020.”
And we were planning to start shooting the film in early 2020.”
Many fans assumed Razor Fist would die in the film because that is how he dies in the comics.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens to him now that he’s no longer considered a villain.
“I think the audience and the people got a nice first glimpse and tease of where this whole movie is going…
