I knew of Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings before they announced it was going to be Simu Liu as the lead role. He was announced at San Diego Comic Con 2019 and it’s crazy to think it was that long ago!
I’m glad the movie is doing well at the box office. Absolutely amazing and there were a lot of times I’ve related to Awkwafina’s character, Katy. Ha. There needs to be sequels and that we could see the growth of Shang Chi as a character much like the other Marvel Superheroes!!!
I remembered the original pitch for Loki was something much different than what we got for the series. I remembered Kevin Feige saying that we would see Loki jumping through various historical times and messing with the events. So, it wasn’t like I read a fan blog! I think they had to change it because The Eternals is going to be that but “serious business” plot instead.
I’ve seen a split reaction to the series. Personally, I like to keep an open mind on these shows. I watched Agents of SHIELD and I can appreciate these shows are relevant to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was always weird when the TV shows can’t mention anything or they weren’t relevant to the movies. The budget in the show would be drastically on the low end and that was awkward. I appreciate these had nearly or the same budget as the movies did!
I have watched that old NBC show Powerless that was about the cleanup crew after the DC heroes destroyed a city while trying to save the world. I think that type of show would have to be within the universe and able to have the same budget to work nowadays. It is fun to see how the landscape of TV has changed over the years concerning superheroes.
Time flies! I swear, last I remember that WandaVision was premiering yesterday. Now, the Loki series is coming up this Wednesday. Loki’s the character I’ve been more familiar with than the previous two Marvel shows. I like the 60’s / 70’s aesthetic the Time Variance Authority seems to have? We’ll see in two days! Ahhh!
Fun fact, I remember walking past the Thor 2: The Dark World signing at Comic-Con! A little girl that was probably under 12 years old went in front of Tom Hiddleston and she started crying. He got up and around the table to hug her and she started crying even more! Oh no! I thought it was super sweet how he thought that would have helped.
