    It would be cool!

    Chinese in China aren't hungry for representation. So it seems this attempt to appeal them without really understanding their culture really bothers them.

    That's why they are angry about the "beauty standard" aspect too.
    What is this "beauty standard" u speak of?

    How does the Hollywood beauty standards extend to Asians?

    I am a little confused because we have a crap ton of recurring Asian American actresses who get a ton of exposure more than Asian male actors in North America so I am not understanding.

    There have been many Asian male actors getting shine, not as much an Asian actresses .... Shang-Chi should be taken as a positive so I don't get what is wrong here.

    Because Asian American actors are often stereotyped as unmanly because they don't conform to outdated Eurocentric beauty standards of actors. My point is simply that Westerners shouldn't necessarily pat themselves on the back for being "open-minded" when Hollywood hasn't had a lot of Asian leads, especially in light of the controversy supposedly around Chinese people not liking these actors.

    Anyway, I'm not sure what your exact point is. I think this movie will be good, and I think it's a positive.

    Great article on what to expect in the movie: https://people.com/movies/shang-chis...n-of-asianess/

    Particularly like this quote:
    "It's really like a celebration of Asianness, and also all of the characters that surround that are coming from a multitude of different backgrounds, whether it's Asian American or Chinese, or otherwise," he says. "The other thing that I will promise you, I will put a stamp on and personally guarantee is that you're going to see some of the craziest action sequences that you've ever seen."
    Craziest action sequences? Better than the Winter Soldier elevator fight? The Civil War airport showdown? The fights in Wakanda or Titan like like Avengers Infinity War? Or how about the end battle of Endgame? Crossing the deadly hands that Shang-Chi delivers here!
    "I am a man of peace."

    I’m not sure why they’d think that. The scenes with him are absolutely exquisite. Maybe the artist’s composition of Spidey?
