Huh. I guess Crazy Rich Asians succeeding was the push they needed to approve this thing.

...or having an excuse to do so now that Iron Fist has been canceled.

My only real worry about Shang-Chi is that most of his stuff is tied up with Fu Manchu, who is still basically a character that isn't in the public domain yet. (and he's been around for at least nearly a century if not longer) Either they get the right rites to make this work well or work around it somehow...

Shang-Chi is pretty much the Marvel version of Karate Kid (which is a DC character), only he's the master of wushu and other Chinese martial arts, as opposed to Karate Kid who is master of other martial arts, mostly Japanese styles (it's why he's called the "Master of Kung Fu"). There's no link to Iron Fist, since Iron Fist's abilities, other than his fighting style, isn't natural. Shang-Chi is natural talent, except his last appearance had him having the ability to duplicate himself.

Thanks for this insight, well then could be interesting.

That's what I'm wondering as they couldn't re-release the series due to the loss of the rights to Fu Manchu. Will also say wonder on how they could do Fu Manchu since he's so tied to old stereotypes unless they can redo like they did Ming the Merciless and current versions of the Mandarin who is more a villain who happens to be Asian rather than just how he was once.

Admittedly if they did Fu Manchu...or someone similar to him without needing Sax Roman's family blessing...I rather they sort of actually did him as "The Mandarin Done Right"; perhaps with the take of him as an evil businessman with ancient Chinese evil empowering him as opposed to the old "Yellow Terror" depiction of the past.

Heck, considering he is also tied up with a lot of British intelligence things, they could also use him as a means to team up with Captain Britain, who they also expressed interest with making a movie of. (though I assume Captain Britain and Black Knight will be kept together and in more fantastic elements...or mutant stuff due to being more tied to the X-elements)

I have this insane desire for the Shang Chi stinger to be Shang Chi finishing off a generic kung fu bad guy group fight, only to turn around and his next opponent lowers a sword that starts glowing white or a fist that glows yellow.

So I was just slipped this article...about how Disney does not want to move the Marvel/Netflix shows onto Disney+, and that for all intents and purposes, Marvel-Netflix is done forever.

Taking with a grain of salt since apparently the source for this is just a reporter from the Rolling Stone magazine...but, I wouldn't be surprised if this was what's going to happen either.
It's weird, when Netflix started cancelling these shows, everyone grabbed their torches and pitchforks and blamed Disney; either they don't realise, or wilfully ignore, that pretty much each Marvel Netflix show saw around a 60% viewership drop this year. These shows are expensive to make, why would Netflix keep funding them? The only reason they haven't cancelled Jessica Jones or Punisher is because they've already filmed new seasons.

Totally agree, but at least I can tolerate it, unlike that even worse Captain America movie where he gets unfrozen by the President to save a family from anti-environmentalists.

I bought that on VHS in the bargain bin of a video store waaaaaaaaaay back in the day.

If the guys in the MCU can make their female Captain Marvel popular, they may the same luck with the Fantasic Four and/or the X-Men.

Yeah, at least they deserved to be treated with respect and dignity.

If I were the director, I would cast Tony Jaa.

But the biggest issue is... Tony's contract.

Do the X-Men have to be made popular? Maybe Wolverine?

Tony isn't Chinese. That can piss off the Chinese market greatly. I love me some Tony and would love his involvement in some way. However he shouldn't be Shang Chi.
