    I'm a huge Shaw Brothers honk, still to this day. This Shang-Chi news is great and if the MCU and flex the kung-fu thing on film, bring that back on some level the way it did for the capes. Maaannnn, very cool... and I ain't talkin' bout more of the same with a thousand jump cuts either.
    Beefing up the old home security, huh?
    You bet yer ass.

    Here I was hoping for years that he'd at least get a show but now a movie!!! I hope they don't mess this up.
    I bet this came about because of the backlash from Ironfist season 1. Remember how mad people were over Danny not being cast Asian? Looks like someone took notes and said: "Shang Chi, you're off the bench, bro!"
    No longer 'Biden' our time, hur hur hur.

    Fuck, somewhere out there Donnie Yen is probably like "Oh great NOW y'all do this."

    I want to see who throws their hat into the ring for the Shang Chi part as Jet Li, Donnie Yen and even Tony Jaa and them are too old now.

    All I can think is some K-Pop dude or some Canto Pop Idol I've never heard of is gonna get the role

    It's a lot simpler than that. They saw how Black Panther literally printed money for them and got a bunch of positive buzz, which opened up a bunch of conversations about audiences wanting more diversity in their superhero movies. Now they look at China, one of the biggest film markets on the planet. Disney's eyes turned into dollar signs.

    Add to it that the Netflix shows are going bye-bye (the only other platform where it arguably would've made sense to do this), and it's pretty simple. Plus with the Netflix characters likely being persona non grata, they'll be like "Danny Rand who?"

    I'd be very surprised if Jimmy "what the dickens?" Woo from Ant-Man and The Wasp ends up leading the Agents of Atlas.

    People who just watch the movies didn't know characters like Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man or Dr. Strange either. They'll watch these new movies because of the marvel brand (assuming they don't get tired of that particular brand).

    I'm sure they won't. They'll use either the name changed version of Shang Chi's father or possibly go in a completely different direction.

    This Shang Chi news is long overdue. I think Marvel got the call from all the Ironfist backlash.

    Marvel lost the rights to use the name "Fu Manchu" but even if they hadn't some might have found it problematic. They came up with a simple work around by just changing his name. Incidentally, they changed Yellow Claw ( who was another Fu Manchu rip-off) to Golden Claw in the Agents of Atlas comic.

    Hilariously, despite such sincere intentions, that would backfire on the PR side of things. You'd see "Stop Taking Power Away From Minorities" articles on Mary Sue, The Guardian, and the like pop up overnight.

    I would DIE if Midnighter film was ever announced.

    Batwoman is going to be on Green Arrow/Flash crossover. And from what i understand, Margot Robbie wants to tackle the Ivy and Harley relationship in her upcoming movie or franchise.

    No, I meant what if that had been how Jaime had been depicted from the very beginning.

    Ah. I see. An interesting question. Don't really know whether that'd be an improvement or not.

    As a character I'm sure Danny Rand would admit that Shang-Chi is the better fighter. As someone posted on twitter if Disney wants the shows for their streaming service they can pay Netflix to release them. Characters wise , I wouldn't be shocked if a deal is in place like...if no shows are created in a year or two ...Marvel can use them.

    A Power Man & Iron Fist series with 2 guys from different worlds would be fun to watch. (A buddy cop/bounty hunter show with super villains) .
