Oh come on, they can find a better Asian character than that. Shang Chi was just a two-dimensional Bruce Lee ripoff. Which is why they did absolutely nothing with him for about a decade from about 1987-1996. Talk about blatant stereotyping. When they get the X-Men franchise they'll have a bunch of better Asian characters, like Jubilee and Sunfire.

Apart from X-Verse characters? Well, they could make a movie about the version of Colleen Wing they developed on Netflix. She was great. Certainly in 20th century comics I'm most familiar with, Marvel didn't have many good Asian/Asian-background characters outside of the X-Verse. They need to invent new ones, but they probably have since my day. The question is why aren't they using them in movies, instead of Shang Chi, who's got pretty much no personality, no anything. They're selling audiences of Asian background short if all they can offer them is Shang Chi.

Maybe he's not that great in the comics, but here's the thing: the movies absolutely do not reflect the comics 100% so they can always rework him. Marvel is probably counting on the Chinese movie market a little too much though.

Shang Chi is basically Mr Kung Fu. It's stereotyping. There's more to Chinese people than Kung Fu. The character was invented in a time when attitudes about these things were a lot more primitive. I'm sure that out of all their 57 year back catalog, Marvel can find a better, less stereotypical Asian character to make a movie about. One with a personality.

Yes, Marvel could rework him, but how much are they willing to? When they brought the Black Panther to the big screen they picked a stiff actor and thus compounded the character's biggest problem -his lack of a fully alive personality. Are they going to make a habit of selling minorities films about characters with little personality? With a lack of properly-developed personalties, these characters will stand out as condescendingly-offered tokens rather real, living, breathing characters.

In their Netflix shows Marvel has excellent minority characters, but they're shutting down that Netflix wing, so we're stuck with the Black Panther and Shang Chi, rather than superb characters like the Netflix versions of Luke Cage, Colleen Wing and Elektra. We need movies about characters like the Netflix ones.

Marvel does have some good minority heroes in their movies, like Falcon, War Machine and Nick Fury, but these are supporting characters rather than characters the films are centered on. Judging by the Black Panther movie and the proposed Shang Chi movie, when Marvel makes movies about minority characters they insist on picking characters without fully alive personalities. Maybe they'll find a good actor for Shang Chi and thus make character work, but, knowing the character, I'm not hopeful.

yay for something A4 related! Endgame!


what if Endgame isn't actually the title for Avengers 4, but a four part webisode showing events directly after IW and in the interim time period up until the start of the time in Avengers 4. the four parts of the webisode are split into four trailers that each make up Endgame, and then the actual title reveal is at closing credits of Cap Marvel film in March...Carol Danvers will return in Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet.
