    One is the great Protector, the other is probably Fin Fang Foom

    Pretty doubtful there will ever be a "Fin Fang Foom" in the MCU. Maybe a character that slots into the same role, but not with that name.

    Would "Fin Fang Foom" even fly as a name today?

    Well he was recently on the modok series. So clearly they are still using the character.Don't see how it's any worse than Godzilla or Groot. It was just one of those monster names marvel had back in the day when they were doing monster books.

    It was just a random name they thought was cool. They were doing a monster a month in multiple books before they started doing superheroes.

    I could see them making fun of how silly the name is. Kind of like what they did with AntMan's.

    I believe the mcu renamed the Cosmic Cube as the Tesseract, to sound less ridiculous.

    I was thinking audience may take it as sounding more like a racist Chinese name like the "Ching Chang Chong" slur rather than being just a silly comicbook name.

    It was more likely Stan Lee or someone saying random words when trying to come up with dialogue for a predrawn comic art and thinking it sounded cool.

    “ Hey this Fin looks neat, I like the way his fangs are drawn here. What about Foom for a sound effect here? Oh that’s perfect, let’s name the monster Fin Fang Foom. Say it with me Fin Fang Foooom! Kid’s will love it! Kind of a neat name you can have fun repeating over and over”

    Too many people are thinking too hard trying to come up with things to be angry about these days. It was just a bunch of guys trying to come up with silly names for monsters on a deadline that they thought would appeal to kids in the 50’s and 60’s and wouldn’t cause issue with the comics code. Murder kill blood beast would get you in trouble. But Fin Fang Foom wouldn’t get you a second glance. Go back and read the old rules they had to be very careful what they showed and said. It was strictly enforced back then.
    Why else do you think Fin Fang Foom has pants?

    They can always rename Fin Fang Foom. James Gunn did something similar with Arm-Fall-Off-Boy being renamed The Detachable Kid in “The Suicide Squad.” Plus, I get the impression that Wenwu will hardly be referred to as “The Mandarin” (if at all).

    I tend to not poke my head into the MCU related threads because I don't really have much good to say about it anymore. Wandavision had an alright start but really fell apart, Falcon and the Winter Soldier was shit all throughout, Loki was shite and Black Widow was a dumpsterfire, and with little exception I doubt we're suddenly gonna see an improvement. Kevin Feige is an idiot and evidently cut from the same cloth as others in his line of work like Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Kathleen Kennedy.

    I'm only commenting on this film because I feel some form of investment as I loved the original Shang-Chi comics, and the movie is also apparently going to utilize one of my favorite Iron Man villains. I doubt the movie will capture what made the comics great, I doubt the Mandarin / Wenwu will be accurate since they seem to be terrified of depicting him as a villain and pissing off the CCP.

    I also adore how now Kev realizes he fucked up with the Ancient One's casting, just brilliant. I've been re-reading a lot of Marvel comics when it was at it's best and it's like night and day when compared to a typical MCU movie. I still enjoy watching many of the MCU films but the more time passes the more it feels like these movies are just a shallow, inferior copy of much better works.

    Got to go to the premier yesterday and had a great time. Got selfies with a few of the stars including Simu himself and they were all super excited about the movie.

    in terms of the film itself, i loved it! Prolly one of the best new origin movies since Doctor Strange. The action was excellent and the acting was exceptional. A couple cringey comedy moments but overall a really fun time.

    pretty simple no for this one. There are references to MCU stuff but they dont brinf up anything from the Netflix stuff.

    Edit:
    That being said if you want to discuss anything about the movie feel free to PM me but since the movies so close indont want to spoil anything major here.

    Thanks for the reply. Reason I asked is rumors having Marvel reintroducing a new Ironfist to the MCU and not one from Netflix which is a good thing, and there are so many dragons in this movie so what's one more?

    Let me guess, the cringey comedy moments came from the untalented and overrated Awkwafina? Also, please post spoilers if you can.

    Yea no sign of him yet. Maybe if they make a sequel to this one?

    Vague spoilers in this box.
    Actually no Awkwafina was hilarious and knew when to reign it in pretty well. The bad humor mostly comes from side characters and two particularly awkward cuts during big emotional moments. Classic MCU comedy.

    And for now im gonna keep detailed spoilers in the DMs since i dont wanna ruin it for anyone here. :)
