Here Are The Wildly Positive First Reactions To Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi’


Marvel Studios

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the 25th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the second film in the MCU’s Phase Four, premiered in Los Angeles on Monday, August 17, and with it came a slew of first reactions to the film, all of which are filled with massive praise for the film.

Shang-Chi is a bigger deal than most Marvel films, as it’s not only the first since Spider-Man: Far From Home to take place after Avengers: Endgame, but it’s also, and obviously, the first MCU film to feature an Asian cast. Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton (Just Mercy), Shang-Chi is set to open up a whole new corner of the MCU, as the film will see the introduction of the Ten Rings and the mythology behind it (as evidenced by the trailer, there’s a dragon in this movie, which should tell you all you need to know).

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings — which stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Meng’er Zhang, Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu, Benedict Wong, Michelle Yeoh, and Tony Leung — hits theaters on Friday, September 3.
