Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings It is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and has Simu Liu as Shang-Chi and Tony Chiu-Wai Leung as The Mandarin, a troublesome comic book character who apparently was masterfully adapted into this film. We will also see Awkwafina, Michelle Yeoh and Benedict Wong as part of the cast, among others.
On Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings We have a tribute to the martial arts films from China that have marked several generations, with renowned stars such as Bruce Lee, Jet Li and Jackie Chan among their main representatives. However, some comparisons bring to mind the Dragon Ball franchise, which in addition to being one of the most popular anime in the world, was regrettably adapted to live-action in Dragonball Evolution – 14%.
Critic Chris Stuckmann had already commented on his YouTube channel about Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings that the director had proven to be the one to bring the adventures of Goku and company to the big screen. Maybe not all Dragon Ball fans agree with wanting a new live-action adaptation, but they sure don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to see the closest thing, Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings.

But even for those who are not very enthusiastic about anime or watching a Dragon Ball adaptation, most of the reactions are very positive, pointing to a new triumph for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with enough doses of action, interesting characters. and references to other films in the franchise that will satisfy fans.
Shang-Chi was one of the best Marvel movies I had seen in a long time. The plot was pretty basic, but it makes up for it with great characters and probably the best fight scenes we’ve had in a long time. No spoilers, it became fully Dragon Ball Z in the end and I loved it so much!

Shang Chi has everything that Dragon Ball Evolution unfortunately lacked.
It had to be said and it was said.

#ShangChi does not focus on its hero as the protagonist, but on his fragmented family. The result is as exciting as its intense, colorful and wacky action scenes. A film that stands alone, even with dozens of references to the universe to which it belongs pic.twitter.com/9gtXWQgNgn

I’m done assimilating #ShangChi. I really enjoyed the movie, one of the best in the MCU in my opinion.
And #Wenwu is a great villain, his motivations change your perspective, and then you remember that #ShangChi is the good one.
I can’t wait to see her again. pic.twitter.com/ivVf7RZfkN

After Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings, the Marvel Cinematic Universe still has surprises in store for fans. In addition to the remaining chapters of the animated series What If …? – 84% …, the premiere of Eternals, a film by Oscar winner Chloé Zhao, based on the Jack Kirby comics, is pending, and then we will have the most anticipated film of the year, Spider-Man: No Road Home .
What most attracts the attention of Spider-Man: No Way Home is that it will bring back several characters from the previous Spider-Man films that were in charge of Sony Pictures. The first trailer confirmed Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus and Willem Dafoe as Green Goblin, but according to rumors there will also be Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, both as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, and Jamie Foxx as Electro, Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy.
Eternals hits theaters on November 5 and Spider-Man: No Way Home on December 17, however, we should not rule out a possible delay if Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings does not triumph at the box office.
