Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings - Official Discussion Thread (Spoilers)
Going to see it tonight.

Looking forward to this movie as Black Widow was a bit of a disappointment IMO.

Business is about to really pick up again with The Eternals in November, Spider-Man No Way Home in December followed by Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in March

Really hope this is a good introduction to the MCU. I'm not a big kung fu or martial arts person. Just want great character development.

Seeing it in IMAX?

I hope to catch it this weekend, most likely Sunday for me.

I wish I could see it in Dolby but where I moved to Arkansas doesn't have an AMC Dolby theater. I'm doing normal tonight and IMAX tomorrow. I like watching Marvel movies twice to really catch all the details

I love kung fu and marshal arts movies, so this one looks fun. Not a huge fan of aquafina, but she can be funny in small doses

Ozarka is filtered Dallas tap water, but it's still good.

I had zero expectations for this movie, as I believe we all should for all the Phase 4 films, but having just gotten out, I can say it was WILDLY entertaining.

An argument can be made that foremostly it's a solid kung-fu movie with MCU MSG for flavor.

I'll wait until after the weekend for folks to see it before talking spoilers.

Great action, probably the best hand to hand combat I’ve seen since the John Wick movies, obviously less gruesome.

There is a midcredits and post credit scene btw.

I’ve got some theories on the comments made in the mid-credits scene that I’ll go over later.

Enjoyed it. I will say that they need to hire the fight choreographer on this film for Sam Wilson Captain America cause if he moved anywhere near like Shang Chi he would be 100%

Really enjoyed it. Fight scenes were incredible. Some of the best in the MCU. Up there with Bucky vs Cap in Winter Soldier.

Wasn't top 10 MCU movies but I really like Shang Chi the character. Good introduction to the MCU. I'm not a big fantasy person so dragons and creatures like that can take me out of stuff but I thought this was well done.

Awkwafina was also very tolerable for those who don't necessarily like her.

I'm looking forward to seeing Shang Chi in other MCU movies and shows.

The rings have to come from the Celestials right? Have to. Well maybe they don't but still, it makes sense to me

I think they're setting up the rings to have a connection to the Eternals.

That was my initial thought. Could be something that Galactus gave a former herald as well.

If they delayed this, I imagine they would have to delay The Eternals and No Way Home.

Call me delusional but I still think No Way Home brings in $1 billion worldwide

Eternal I agree they'd have to delay but No Way Home is about as pandemic proof as any movie you are gonna get and would hit around the $1 bil ww mark, Shang-Chi doesn't have that kind of clout yet
