Marvel Studios officially announced a sequel to Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings this week after signing director Destin Daniel Cretton to a new contract. That’s great news! Shang-Chi was an awesome flick and there is a ton of sequel potential. Simu Liu, Awkwafina and the whole enterprise are ripe for becoming a new corner stone of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am here for it.
So what’s a sequel going to feature? Shang-Chi has almost zero comic book lore to draw from. Marvel has tried again and again to give him some stories, some background and some anything, but none of it has ever really cracked the comic book consciousness. And The Legend of the Ten Rings came up with a lot of its own original mythology and lore anyway. So the canvas is wide open to come up with plenty of ideas and directions. That’s great and all, but a comic book dork like me knows a lot of Marvel stuff to draw from for a sequel!

So it’s Monday. It’s also the last day of my vacation, and Thanksgiving week, where I’ll pretty much be going on a second vacation out of the office as I travel home to hang out at my parents’ house. So honestly, I’m not feeling very workmanlike at the moment.
So how about some easily digestible internet comedy videos?
Like an Honest Trailer for the What If…? TV show!
Or how about How Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Should Have Ended!
Or even How The Suicide Squad Should Have Ended!
Simple, enjoyable videos, so that if you swing by my blog on this lazy Monday, you’ll have at least something sorta nifty to watch. And that’s what matters the most!
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is here and it was awesome! I was very excited for this movie, excited to see martial arts done right on the big screen and excited for the newness of the whole endeavor. I’m also a big fan of representation in media, so I was excited to see Marvel bring an Asian main character into the MCU.
Movie Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
I wasn’t as completely blown away by the movie as I was hoping to be. I had really high hopes for Shang-Chi, and they were mostly met. It’s another fine, enjoyable Marvel movie. I liked everybody in the movie and I definitely look forward to everyone showing up again, both in a sequel and in some future team-ups. I look forward to them joining the circus, and I hope the success Shang-Chi has seen at the box office during the pandemic is more than enough for Marvel to greenlight sequels and more.

It’s an idle Tuesday with not a lot going on for me to post about. Granted, I’m sure I could do some digging and find something to write about. But instead I’m just going to share some fun Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings videos from last week! Like a new quickie trailer.
And a featurette that just explores the movie a bit more.
Still very excited about this movie. Still very worried that the resurgence of the virus might ruin everything. We shall see! But Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings comes out on Sept. 3. It’s only a month away!
This was a great week for movie trailers! Two of the biggest upcoming superhero movies decided to just thrill us with some brand new trailers this week. Seriously, out of nowhere, Marvel dropped a new trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings just last night! Where did this beauty come from?
I won’t spoil everything we just saw in that trailer, but holy cow! I don’t think anybody saw that cameo coming! That should be an exciting moment! And we got some stronger, fuller looks at the Ten Rings themselves, and Shang-Chi. All of that looks great to me!
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings comes to theaters on Sept. 3, just in time for my birthday!
Next up is a new trailer for The Suicide Squad by James Gunn. I thought we had plenty of trailers for this film, but this new one is great, too!
Interesting new details for Idris Elba’s Bloodsport…though it does seem he really is just a rebooted Deadshot. We’ll see when the movie comes out. Should still be fun. And King Shark might just be the standout character of this movie. Can’t wait for this one either!
The Suicide Squad comes out on Aug. 6!
