First Shang-Chi Reactions Tease Phenomenal Triumph For The MCU

Comic book fans everywhere have been eating good all throughout 2021. With less than a couple weeks away from September 3rd, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is ramping up for an experimental 45-day release window in theaters before heading to Disney+. Being the first MCU film since Spider-Man: Far From Home to play exclusively at the movies, it’ll be interesting to see how Shang-Chi will perform in the box office given the recent surge of the COVID delta variant.

Nevertheless, anticipation is high for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 25th movie! Last night, Disney and Marvel Studios held the film’s red carpet world premiere at the El Captain theater. Along with that came the first spoiler-free social media reactions via Twitter. What do the critics and journalists have to say about Shang-Chi? Well, word of mouth is positively radiant! Critics and journalists have praised the movie’s action, fight choreography, dark mystic tones, the family dynamic, humor, and of course it’s cast! Some have even called it the best origin movie by far. Right down below you can see a complied list of different reactions!
