While we await the arrival of new Marvel Hero Shang-Chi, played by the new leading man Simu Liu, Netflix is supplying us with a suitable stand-in. The streaming program has released the trailer for a new Kung Fu series titled Wu Assassins.

As described by Netflix itself, Wu Assassins “follows Kai Jin (Iko Uwais), a young Chinatown chef in present-day San Francisco as he becomes entangled with the Chinese Triad’s pursuit of deadly ancient powers known as the “Wu Xing.” After an encounter with a mystical spirit, Kai reluctantly becomes the Wu Assassin (Mark Dacascos), using his enhanced martial arts skills to recover supernatural powers from five modern-day criminals threatening to use them to destroy the world.”

This series truly has it all, action, a fantasy storyline, and LGBTQ characters. Yes, the series also includes a lesbian romance involving Katheryn Winnick’s character Christine.

If this show sounds interesting to you, you don’t have long to wait. Wu Assassins will be arriving at Netflix on August 8th. In the meantime, you can watch the trailer down below.
