Marvel fans have been on edge, waiting for the next Marvel movie release, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The exciting new Marvel movie's trailer has dropped, and eagle-eyed fans reckon they've spotted something Captain America-related in the background.
People soon noticed that you can see the super soldier's shield if you look closely in the background.
Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) pointed out the possible hidden message in the movie, which soon led to comments on Twitter suggesting that there could be a crossover between the franchises.
Well, if we have learned anything from Marvel, we know they're happy to draft characters into another superhero's movie.
You need to look closely, but it appears to be Cap's shield. ComicBook.com's Adam Barnhardt took to social media where he asked: "Is... is that John Walker's shield?" This is referring to the Disney+ show The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
The tweet racked up over 2,500 likes and more than 400 retweets in just a few hours. Not everyone believes that the shield is hidden in the background. However, despite many being in disagreement, one person wrote: "Maybe, it def looks like it. Maybe they stole it? I'm not a Marvel expert, so correct me if I'm wrong."
Several others also commented on the tweet. One person said, "Hmmm it sure looks like it," while another said, "That is just a piece of cardboard with a star painted on it... wait, yup, that is John Walker's shield."
The speculation continued, with one commenting, "I think it's a painting on the wall, no way the shield would just be sitting there."
The trailer of the new Marvel movie, where actor Simu Liu plays the titular character Shang-Chi, offers fans their first look at the main protagonist in Marvel's first movie that centres on an Asian superhero. It will see Shang-Chi confront his past and battle with the villainous Ten Rings organisation.
Shang-Chi was created by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin. The kung-fu master made his comic debut in 1973 as a way for Marvel to capitalise on martial arts stories' popularity with American audiences.
