S3E6: Shang-Chi Easter Eggs, Breakdown, Shirtless Simu & More With Special Guest

Shang-Chi Easter Eggs

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is on fire at the box office, pulling in serious numbers despite the pandemic. We’ve seen it a bunch of times and couldn’t wait to share all the Shang-Chi Easter eggs with you. But we also knew we wanted to have our friend Mike from the What You Talking podcast join us. Mike has hung out with on here before for the Friend, Marry, Kill Marvel edition. Here is a quick recap: he loathes Iron Fist, Jane Foster, and Shirtless Shang-Chi. The last one we naturally don’t agree with.

Shang-Chi Easter Eggs

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings featured a lot of Easter eggs not only from Marvel Comics and the MCU but also from Chinese mythology. The way the filmmakers wove in these various nods made for an awesome film.

Some of our favorites were how the Mandarin issue was addressed from Iron Man 3 and of course the mythical creatures. Morris is a star and we all agree that he needs a Marvel One Shot with Trevor to show us what their life is like now in Ta-Lo.

We naturally supported the Shirtless Simu scenes but Mike is waiting for a What If… Shang-Chi Keeps His Shirt On? Probably won’t happen but Mike is willing to stay on that hill… alone.

Aside from the shirtless debate, we also discussed what would’ve made Shang-Chi better, spoiler: more Michelle Yeoh, what we think about those post credit scenes, and where the Ten Rings might show up next.

It was another fun one! Thanks Mike for joining us! We will see you again when the Thor Love and Thunder trailer debuts if not before.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Review

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Review

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has easily worked its way into our top 10 lists for MCU films, maybe even top 5 in some cases. With a unique story and incredible action and visuals, it is the best MCU origin film since phase 1. It also happens to be in our top 3 for that, nothing beats an Alan Menken song though, sorry Simu.

Not only is this an epic addition to the MCU lineup and arguably the best way to kick off Phase 4 excitement… no offense Black Widow, but it also introduces us to a whole new world of mythology and culture that many fans are unfamiliar with. If you thought the rhinos in Black Panther were amazing, you haven’t seen anything yet. So while yes this is a superhero movie it transcends that and tells a story that could stand on its own outside of the MCU. In fact, viewers might forget they are watching a comic book movie if it wasn’t for some cameos sprinkled in.

The entire film is visually stunning, from the lighting to the special effects and the costumes. Looking for action? The fight scenes are beyond anything that we have seen before, each better than the last and they all lead into a mind-blowing finale that will have you cheering.

We gushed about the cast’s performance and how much each of the legends brought to the film. Michelle Yeoh, Tony Leung, and Sir Ben Kingsley. Enough said.

Post-Credit Scenes: Yes! There are TWO post-credit scenes and both hint at future Phase 4/5 plans and we can’t say anything but you’re going to love them and we have A LOT to talk about.
