    Nothing against Ironfist but I think it’d be too soon to introduce—or even hint at—another martial arts master.

    Tony Leung On The Pursuit Of Perfection - ELLE SINGAPORE

    "When Marvel offered me the role, what they wanted was for me to create a brand new Mandarin, so I got to develop my character along with the filming,” he says. “I’ve never approached Wenwu from a villain’s standpoint. Rather, I tried to explore the reasons that led him to become who he is. He’s a man with history, who craves to be loved. He is also human, and he has a family. As I read the script, I began to consider the many reasons why he’d turn out the way he is — a sociopath, a narcissist, a bigot.”

    The celebrated actor was deliberately kept from background references, and was only given the script a month before filming commenced.

    This villainous role will be Leung’s first; he shares that he has been thinking of taking on one in the past two years, the antithesis of his usual Don Juan characters. Over the years, he’s had offers from around the world, but turned them down because of a lack of connection with the script or character. In his words, film-making is “a kind of destiny”, and Wenwu came loaded with an offer that was hard to refuse — adding to a legitimate representation of Asian cinema by starring in Marvel’s first Asian superhero movie.

    “When director Destin Daniel Cretton first described the role to me, he said there are many layers to the antagonist role, and hoped that I could come on board,” Leung shares, noting that the partnership with Cretton checks the boxes for the right vibes. “I accepted it because of the director. It just felt right. Plus, this is something I’ve never done before, to play an Asian supervillain. A chance to do something for Asia. I thought, why not?”

    “When I spoke with Destin in the beginning, he said I didn’t need to fight because I have ‘the rings’!” he says. “Even if I’d known earlier, I would’ve trained for it beforehand to handle the physical demands of the role. It’s definitely my biggest challenge playing Wenwu.” Such is his personal conviction that he practises: to “do” the scenes himself if he’s able to — for instance, for The Grandmaster he spent four years learning and practising kung fu, even breaking his arm twice. “This is also a way to better develop the role, as well as boost confidence. It helps me really get into character. I get really frustrated when I’m unable to do what is required well, so I always try my best. I think it’s a ‘me’ thing.”

    Okay, so that looked fun. Honestly, this is probably the MCU film I'm looking forward to the most this year. Can't wait!

    Brad Allan's experience from the Jackie Chan stunt team is showing. Rest in peace to one of the greatest stunt coordinators.

    Abomination should learn to pull his punches, for his own sake.


    Also, Reddit has released the synopsis. It's your choice to check it out or not.

    If the leaks are true then this should be a good film.

    That’s what they did with BW. At this point I watch the first 2 trailers and ignore everything else.

    I think I’ll go ahead and go check it out in theaters, I don’t really wanna wait and potentially get spoiled. I feel like there’s more at stake to be spoiled for here than Black Widow, which I haven’t seen yet.

    I'm hyped to see this but Simu is getting ridiculous on Twitter about being the first Asian hero on screen. Slaps the face of Jackie Chan and Jet Li for all they have done in the 90s and 2000s.

    Really? I just scrolled through his Twitter feed and didn't see him mention being the first anything at all in the last couple of months.
