    No idea either... though one of the articles I read recently said that there were a lot of characters in the film that were created for the movie itself.

    Closest I could find from the comics was Chinese secret agent Leiko Wu. I think Laser Optimus is right and this is just an original character.

    Well lets hope we get some cool comic translations from these film additions.

    Sorry for the double post.

    But with this fighting tournament and dragons and everything.

    Sure would have been great to have Iron Fist here. Too bad they wasted him and is stuck in non-canon

    Well, my understanding at the very least is that once they get the rights back they want to revisit Iron Fist. No idea when/where/how though. Maybe they can do an Iron Fist/Shang-Chi team-up film in the future?

    No matter how hard I try, I just can’t get hyped for this movie. The lego sets don’t help much either.
    I’d rather have a Wiccan + Hulkling show or movie. Maybe soon, the young Avengers are getting built up, hopefully Billy and Tommy are re-instated in Multiverse of Madness.

    I have a feeling Billy and Tommy will be coming back soon. If not in Multiverse of Madness then somewhere else. Especially after the button scene in WandaVision. The build-up to Young Avengers is pretty obvious given the characters they've got showing up in upcoming films/shows. The only original YA members that aren't confirmed to show up somewhere soon are Teddy and Ironlad.

    2022 is so long to wait though. Better be worth it. Although, this year seems to be the one of tv series, so at least we have that.

    I think Disney / Marvel are in for a rude awakening if they are going to try and create another event like IW/EG. The loss of most of the most popular characters alongside the delay from the shut down has allowed a lot of people to move on. I'm not saying that it's going to bomb, but I think we're entering the phase of diminishing returns.

    Your lack of faith is disturbing. But really, I think this is a good wave. The shows will probably be the backbone of the phase, which, I’ll admit, is a bit sad for people not owning Disney+.
    We’ve been in the dumps before. I doubt Kevin will let another Thor 2 happen again.

    That's... certainly a valid opinion.

    IW/EG was an event more than a decade in the making. I don't think anyone's expecting anything currently on their slate to touch those kinds of numbers. But can they build up to another event in another decade? Maybe.

    I'm pretty sure even Feige is aware of that. In interviews since Endgame hit theaters he's made it clear that they currently have no plans for another event along those lines anytime soon. Smaller events along the lines of what Multiverse of Madness is looking to be or building up to the Young Avengers assembling sure, but it'll be sometime if ever where we get another Infinity War/Endgame.

    Shang Chi has one of the most borrowing outfit in the MCU, even Black Widow looks better.
    Now Death Dealer, I'll take a Hot Toys of him please.

    It's kinda bugging me how the MCU outfits are all kinda just blending together now, compare the outfits here to the ones the Eternals wear.
