Marvel Studios is developing a Shang-Chi movie

from visit this link Deadline, visit this link SYFY WIRE

EXCLUSIVE: Marvel Studios is fast-tracking Shang-Chi to be its first superhero movie tentpole franchise with an Asian protagonist. The studio has set Chinese-American scribe Dave Callaham to write the screenplay, and Deadline hears Marvel is already looking at a number of Asian and Asian-American directors who want to do something as potentially monumental as was accomplished in Marvel’s first viable Best Picture candidate, Black Panther. That film tied into African and African American cultures and the sensibilities of its nearly all-black cast, with a black director in Ryan Coogler and writer in Joe Robert Cole. The goal here is to do a similar thing: introduce a new hero who blends Asian and Asian American themes, crafted by Asian and Asian American filmmakers.

Shang-Chi first appeared in Special Marvel Edition #15 in December 1973, hatched by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin. The script will modernize the hero to avoid stereotypes that many comic characters of that era were saddled with. The comic launched around the time that Enter the Dragon became a global sensation and martial arts films raged. In the comics, Shang-Chi is the son of China-based globalist who raised and educated his progeny in his reclusive China compound, closed off to the outside world. The son trained in the martial arts and developed unsurpassed skills. He is eventually introduced to the outside world to do his father’s bidding, and then has to come to grips with the fact his revered father might not be the humanitarian he has claimed to be and is closer to what others call him: The Devil’s Doctor. He also might be centuries old. The deceit makes them bitter enemies.

Initially an unparalleled master of all forms of martial arts, Shang-Chi later gained the power to make duplicates of himself and has interacted over the years with the Avengers, the X-Men, Daughters of the Dragon, Spider-Man, the Thing, Iron Fist, and many others. He became an Avenger himself in 2012 during the Marvel NOW! relaunch and also appeared most recently in 2017's "Secret Empire" storyline.

some roles just cast themselves. this dude (or Robin Shou) should be Shang Chi's father/nemsis, Fu Manchu (yes that's his name).

We got 2 ghost rider movies and ghost Rider on agents of shield

Blade had 3 movies

And namor they can't even figure out who owns his movie rights might have been fox because he's a mutant or it could be universal which means he's in the same limbo as hulk they can't do a solo movie but they can use him in team movies

plus namor and Aquaman are basically the same character so he could end up like darkseid because he's too similar to thanos

There's been two Spider-Man franchises before the MCU version so I don't think that kind of situation matters. I'm talking about the OG - Johnny Blaze, not Robbie Reyes. I bring up Blade because I'd rather see Marvel take on the supernatural aspects of the universe instead of rushing out an Asian protagonist.

I'm checking it. They'll probably reimagine him a bit so he's more than a kung fu dude hopefully.

Marvel doing what u supposed to do when you got all the money & clout, you break new ground.

This all boils down to who they choose for the lead role


Edit: y'all complaining about no Namor movie but not studying the box office. Aquaman about to drop. Why compete with that anytime soon? Let DC get their blow for now.

Damn right. I love arrogant a** Namor. Stay trying to bless women with royal pipe too. Both Black Panther & Namor got to move on Mrs. Fantastic. Reed is smart but he's obviously not putting in the work.

I'm just wanting what I want. The Asian demo does need a hero. I just love Namor. Him & Doom are 2 of my favorites.

aint no reason to rush Namor. namor vs panther storyline could fuel multiple movies. no rush. the martial arts in this movie should be fu*king phenomenal.
