This study is conducted in patients with Locally advanced, unresectable, or metastatic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) or esophageal adenosquamous carcinoma. This study includes three arms: A, B1, and B2. Arm A will receive HLX07 combination therapy with HLX10 and Chemotherapy (Cisplatin+5-FU) as first line treatment. Arm B (Patients with EGFR expression H score ≥ 200) and Arm C (Patients with EGFR expression H score < 200) will receive HLX07 monotherapy as third-line or above treatment. All of eligible patients will receive study drug treatment until loss of clinical benefit, unacceptable toxicity, death, withdrawal of informed consent (whichever occurs first, HLX10 treatment up to 2 years).

Exclusion Criteria

Subjects who meet any of the following criteria are not allowed to be enrolled in this
A history of gastrointestinal perforation and/or fistula within 6 months prior to the first administration
Obvious invasion of tumor into adjacent organs (aorta or trachea) of esophageal lesions leads to high risk of bleeding or fistula;3. Subjects after endotracheal stent implantation
Uncontrollable pleural effusion, pericardial effusion or ascites requiring repeated drainage
Previous allergies to monoclonal antibody, HLX10, 5-fu, cisplatin and other platinum drugs
Have received any of the following treatments

anti-pd-L1 antibodies (Arm A); B. Have received any research drugs within 4 weeks before
the first use of the study drugs; C. Be enrolled in another clinical study at the same
time, unless it is an observational (non-interventional) clinical study or a follow-up
interventional clinical study; D. Receive the final anticancer treatment within 4 weeks
before the first use of the study drug;Palliative radiotherapy for bone metastases was
allowed and was completed 2 weeks before the first dose.Radiotherapy covering more than 30%
of the bone marrow area is not allowed within 28 days before the first dose
E. Subjects who require systemic treatment with corticosteroids (> 10 mg/ day prednisone
therapeutic dose) or other immunosuppressive agents within 14 days prior to the first use
of the study drug;In the absence of active autoimmune disease, inhalation or topical use of
steroids is permitted, and the therapeutic dose of prednisone 10mg/ day is allowed
F. Those who have received the anti-tumor vaccine or the live vaccine within 4 weeks before
the first dose of the study drug; G. Have undergone major surgery within 28 days prior to
the first use of the study drug. Major surgery in this study is defined as requiring at
