Marvel Studios’ upcoming Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has seen not only the entire film’s plot allegedly leaked, but also the film’s mid credit and post credit scenes.

The alleged leak was shared to the Marvel Studios Spoilers subreddit by the forum’s moderation team MSSmods.

According to this alleged leak, the mid credit scene will feature Benedict Wong’s Wong, Awkwafina’s Katy, Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi, Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner, and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel.

The leak states, “First post credit scene is Wong with Shang-Chi and Katy in the Sanctum. They are talking with BRUCE BANNER (human form, not professor hulk) and CAPTAIN MARVEL (has long hair now) and they talk about the Ten Rings as a power just showing up and how there’s other things in the universe they must not know about.”

It continues, “Bruce and Carol are there using the same kind of hologram tech Natasha uses to talk with them in Endgame. They also mention that there’s something in the Ten Rings acting as a beacon sending a signal.”

“When Katy and Shang ask where it’s sending to, Cap Marvel gets a message and she and Bruce leave. Bruce is also still wearing a sling. Wong basically says to them ‘welcome to the team’ and it ends with the three of them going to karaoke and singing Hotel California,” the leak concludes.

The fact that Ruffalo is no longer in Professor Hulk form might be a surprise to some Marvel Cinematic Universe fans as that was the form he was last seen in at the end of Avengers: Endgame.

However, Geekosity’s Edwin Francisco claimed back in June that Marvel was ditching Professor Hulk. 

Francisco wrote, “Mark Ruffalo will be with Marvel Studios for a while but the same can’t be said for Professor Hulk.”

He added, “Marvel Studios will drop the Professor Hulk incarnation in his next theatrical appearance. In other words, Mark Ruffalo will revert to another incarnation of Hulk. He will lose his genius persona.”

As for why Professor Hulk will not be seen, Francisco stated, “We are not sure what will trigger this, but it means that there will be an event that forces him to use a lot of his strength beyond what Professor Hulk can do. This in turn transforms him to a savage more powerful incarnation of Hulk.”

As for the post credit scene, it features Shang-Chi’s sister and teases a second Shang-Chi film.

The alleged leak begins, “After credits, the sister is in her old room, someone says “they’re here” she walks out, shes taken over her dad’s palace, the 10 rings banner is now reddish, her gang is around her while she sits on the throne.”

It concludes, “zooms out and people are training and the base now has some graffiti, etc showing the new leader. “THE TEN RINGS WILL RETURN”
