Martial Arts Hero Shang-Chi joins the MCU?!

If you guys thought that Black Panther was a revolutionary movie with a diverse cast of African Americans, get ready for another character to influence the Asian-American community for this kung-fu hero. It’s been reported that the martial arts fighter Shang-Chi will most likely get his own movie within the MCU. This movie project will take place after the movie Avengers 4 is finished. If you think Amadeus Cho Hulk or Cindy Moon Silk is a great Asian Marvel hero, you have not met Shang-Chi. If you’re wondering, who is this character and why is he great, IGN has you covered. I am not going to cover everything they described, but I will point out the highlights.

He’s pretty much Ryu from Street Fighter!

IGN described Shang-Chi has a warrior devoted to fighting and training. Shang-Chi travels all over the world in hopes to mastering his techniques.

No super soldier serum needed, just martial arts!

Ign pointed out that Shang-Chi is a hero that doesn’t even have super powers. It’s mentioned that he doesn’t need any support for combat such as Daredvil’s heightened sense or Captain America’s super soldier serum. Instead, Shang-Chi just trains himself to be a strong human and his abilities allows him to even deflect and dodge bullets. He is the master of hand to hand combat without powers… or it seems.

Shadow Clone jutsu?

I guess Marvel wanted to give Shang-Chi powers. IGN later mentioned that Marvel eventually gave him the ability to spawn clones and the clones can imitate his fight style.

70s was all about fighting

Shang-Chi made his debut in 1973’s Special Marvel Edition #15. The 70’s was the peak time for superheroes in comic books. Also, around this time, the 1970’s was the time where kung-fu was popular in comic books and movies. Unfortunately, it didn’t last as the 80’s came by and the plans of a TV series based on Shang-Chi  never saw the light of day.

Friend in Need 

Shang-Chi has teamed up with many Marvel heroes in the past. Shang-Chi has helped Spider-Man in fighting after he lost the Spider Sense ability. He has also teamed up with Daredevil and the Avengers. He has also helped with his martial fighter friends such as Iron Fist in Heroes for Hire and Collen Wing in Daughters of the Dragon.

Modern: Where is he?

Currently, Shang-Chi is in the free mobile game Marvel Future Fight. Despite his hand to hand combat skills, he never made it in any video game besides app game. Now with the news from Marvel, movie writer Dave Callaham will be in charge of the screenplay who is also working on the movie Wonder Woman 1984.

What do you think about this character? What’s your opinion on a movie focused on him?

Spider-Man: Homecoming movie review (Spoilers!)

Sony Pictures site synopsis:

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Inhumans

 

Marvelhttps://i1.wp.com/cdn2us.denofgeek.com/sites/denofgeekus/files/styles/main_wide/public/2017/09/inhumans-1.jpg may be able to make some great superhero movies, but the TV shows is something else. Unlike the well received show Agents of Shield, the recent MCU series Inhumans is getting some negative feedback. According to IGN, Channel ABC canceled the series Inhumans. With only eight episodes in total, the channel is pulling the plug.

Speaking of Agents of Shield, ABC will renew the series for the 6th season. The new season will have 13 episodes and it is hinted that it will reference the recent Marvel movie Avengers: Infinity War. It’s unknown when will it begin.

Friday Funny 158: The Ultimate Crossover War

There was an idea, Stark knows this, called the Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. See if they could work together when we needed them to to fight the battles we never could.

– Nick Fury

TGIF

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for this Friday post. If you are reading this post right now, this will be the biggest moment in your life because today is the official movie release of the long anticipated superhero film Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. This movie was in development for about 10 years since the first MCU film Iron Man in 2008. From 2008 Iron Man to 2018 Black Panther, this was the longest wait; especially Marvel/Disney had to get rights from companies such as Hulk belonging to Universal and Spider-Man from Sony. Marvel has brought all the superheros together and to face a major threat that holds the fate for humanity and the galaxy. The disbanded Avengers are back together, the young Spider-Man joins this galactic fight, Dr. Strange join forces, the recent king of Wakanda Black Panther must enlist his Wakanda soldiers to help fight the evil aliens and we have the ragtag Guardians of the Galaxy to help. The main villain Thanos is collecting 6 Infinity Stones for his Infinity Gauntlet. In trailers, he has two in his gauntlet. Thanos is not alone his world eradication because he has children team called the Black Order. This will be the greatest crossover ever and this is a fight that will decide the fate of the superheros. If I do see this movie, I will not be spoiling anything about this movie #ThanosDemandsYourSilence . Please respect the viewers and do not ruin this for anyone.

Besides this movie, this is the last Friday for April and as we get close to May, get ready for upcoming events. For the blogging team OWLS, we already have decided the next blog tour and I will be posting my post on May 1st and the medium I choose will not be an anime or cartoon. In the movies playing in theaters we have the upcoming Star Wars story, Solo: A Star Wars Story. This movie will talk about the iconic character Han Solo in his earlier youth and we get to see characters like Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian (he first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back). If Avengers wasn’t enough for you, we have the return of the lewd and rude antihero, Deadpool 2. Ryan Reynolds returns as the Merc with the Mouth and he must create a team and fight against a futuristic cyborg antagonist named Cable (the same actor is also doing Thanos) who is hunting a mutant child.

Enough, these are memes I prepared for you today:

Here are some videos to hype you this weekend.

Here is a recap of past MCU movie trailers:

 

In time, you will know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right. Yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.

Have a nice day!

Friday Funny 156: Find meme, post it, get ignored… get ignored?

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Hey everyone, this is Matthew from Matt-in-the-Hat. This is the second week of Friday in April and I hope everyone is doing okay. This weekend will be busy for me because I have plans with the family this weekend, so just in case I don’t respond quickly online, you will know why. Also, if you didn’t know, we already in Spring and this season is the beginning of spring anime such as My Hero Academia season 3, Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online and Tokyo Ghoul:re. As a way to promote the new anime Tokyo Ghoul: re, Viz Media (English manga license company) is having a sale on all Tokyo Ghoul manga in digital format. This includes all 14 volumes of the original manga and the current volumes of TG:re. Originally, in North America, these digital books would cost $8.99, but with this sale, it is now $6.99 and it will stay like this until April 23. If you like the series and you want to read the manga on the go, take advantage of the sale.

Currently, we have 2 weeks until the movie Avengers: Infinity War is released in theaters. You can see people are hype for this movie because it has been planned out for the last 10 years in the MCU world. The first MCU was Iron Man and excluding this one, the recent film was The Black Panther. I hope you are caught up with everything.

Since this is the only news I have, go and look at memes!
