Film Theory: The Giant MONSTER Hiding in Shang-Chi! (Shang Chi Trailer)

Don't miss a Film Theory! ►

The future of Marvel remains a mystery and the world of Shang-Chi is no different. We know TOO MUCH for me to not suspect that some gigantic surprise is awaiting us in the movie. We know about The Mandarin and the Ten Rings. So what, Theorists, is the movie hiding? I have the answer but you will have to watch to find out!

    The way kevin feige pronounces is actually way closer to the actual Chinese pronunciation than what people say. So respect to him.

    Same way Wang is pronounced Wong instead of Wayng. People who spell it as Wong instead of Wang just want you to pronounce it right

    Olive _ Dragon7 days ago

    “The Great Protecter” is an interesting name for the toy leak dragons because Eastern dragons are known to be guardians, or protectors of heaven and earth, being able to control the elements such as water and fire. Also when Matpat talked about the dragon having ten fingers, that doesn’t really mean much because Chinese dragons naturally have ten fingers, five on each hand.

  30. Olive _ Dragon

    Olive _ Dragon2 days ago

    @Sandtrooper TK-3729 Mongolian and Korean Eastern dragons are depicted with 4 fingers. Chinese dragons are depicted with 5, mostly

  41. Kame Sennin

    Honestly you wouldn't even necessarily need the toy leak to confirm the five fingers. Chinese dragons are depicted with 5 whereas Japanese dragons are depicted with 3.
