The trailer made me feel like it was crossing Big Trouble in Little China with like Mortal Kombat and then like a meme Chef Kiss of MCU for flavor. I plan on ordering it on Disney+ soon, looking forward to dragons and shit. lol

It's not on Disney+, only in theaters at the moment. And since it is apparently crushing it, it may be a minute before it comes to streaming.

It doesn't really look that good and I suspect, just like Black Panther, the reviews are being too generous because of certain aspects and instead of judging a piece of work on it's actual merits, it gets a free pass from the SJW infestation in film criticism circles.  Will probably get a Best Picture nomination, too.

Until this movie, I never heard of Shang Chi.  Was he a supporting character in Avengers, Iron Man, or another hero, or did he have his own title.  Am I wrong to assume this character is a "deep cut" into the Marvel universe, or is he someone that recently became a thing? Pardon the question, but just got off work and don't feel like googling it.

I've been familiar with the name for years but have never read him in a comic. He's had his own series' and I think he's in the Avengers now? He started off in martial arts comics in the 70s. He's never been a major player but Marvel's tried making a movie of him since long before the MCU was a thing--going back to the 90s, even. I wouldn't put him as a deeper cut than, say, Groot or Star-Lord were before GOTG came out, but he's fairly deep.

The comic pictures of SHang Chi I have googled more than resemble Bruce Lee, to the point I have to conclude he was inspired by Lee.  Now that you mention he was in the 70s, that makes sense, because that was Lee's hey day, too.
