The official reviews shouldn’t come out for about a week, but Disney (who owns Marvel) welcomes spoiler-free reactions online. One caveat: we should all be aware at this point that early social reactions aren’t the best indicator of a movie’s quality. Still, the excitement is strong.
Shang-Chi follows the hero of Simu Liu, a martial artist and assassin who leads a normal life, until he is forced to confront his past with the underground organization known as the Ten Rings.
The film will hit theaters exclusively on September 3, instead of seeing a simultaneous Disney Plus Premiere Access release, as it did with Black Widow. Shang-Chi also stars Awkwafina, Meng’er Zhang, Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu, Benedict Wong, Michelle Yeoh, and Tony Leung.
Scroll down for these early reactions.
