Action-comedy Shelly follows a young woman named Shelly Wheeler (Awkwafina), who was driven out of her town a decade prior after being humiliated by a prom prank. So hardened by the experience, she ended up becoming a cold-blooded hitwoman.
She is surprised when she finds her next target is her former high school tormentor, Dianna Park (Gillan) and even more surprised to find them becoming friends and being accepted into the cool group.
She then has to protect her ex-bully from another hit team who are after them both.
Gillan and Awkwafina have previously starred together in Jumanji: The Next Level, and are both also part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though their characters have yet to meet.
Gillan is known for playing Nebula in the Guardians of the Galaxy series and Avengers: Endgame, while Awkwafina is set to star in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the first MCU movie to focus on an Asian superhero.
Not much is known about the plot of the upcoming Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, but it seems that the Ten Rings hints that the organisation will have a pivotal role to play in Phase 4.
So it looks like we'll be seeing a few possible future crossovers.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be released on February 12, 2021.
