Shang-Chi and the Lagend of the Ten Rings movie will be the MCU version of Mortal Kombat?

We know that Marvel,s upcoming movie Shang-Chi is a cartoon character of oriental origins and skilled in martial arts, directly inspired by the legendary Bruce Lee, and according to someone's idea all these peculiarities could make the highly anticipated 'Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' by Destin Daniel Cretton a sort of Mortal Kombat of the MCU.

In fact, according to some leaks leaked online and dedicated to the fine comic Marvel Studios starring Simu Liu, apparently, a large part of the Shang-Chi plot will revolve around a martial arts tournament in which the master of Kung Fu will participate, meeting the fearsome dragon Fin Fang Foom. Also in the leak, it was argued that the aim was to win the main prize of the event, that is the Ten Rings which are also a significant part of the title. These rings in the comics are alien weapons each with a unique power and worn all together they are extraordinarily powerful, and usually wearing them (also in the comics) is The Mandarin, Iron Man's # 1 enemy.

The Mandarin (Tony Leung) will discover the existence of the Ten Rings, considered a legend, and will try to take possession of them by winning the tournament, but his age will be a problem, so much so that he will decide to send his most brilliant student, Shang-Chi. Obviously, at the moment this remains only theories, but there are photos and videos from the set that would give credence to this hypothesis.

Also in the cast is a character named Kane, described as "a companion of Shang-Chi who will travel with him and stream his encounters". Then all the castings for professional wrestlers called by Marvel, including the announcers. In short, if this really was the core of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, we would have nothing to object to and Marvel would already have its Mortal Kombat-like movie in its pocket a few months after the Warner Bros product.
