The 42cast Episode 127: Armed and Dangerous

Shang-Chi

Out of the pages of Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, Shang-Chi punches his way into the box office. In this episode we talk about how a character mired in the Kung Fu cinema culture of the 70’s got adapted for the 2020’s. We discuss the cast and what we thought of both the characters and performances. We also get into the greater Marvel story and how this film connects and what we think are the missed opportunities. We also discuss other comics elements and how they’re utilized in the movie, whether this is the final nail in the coffin of the Netflix arm of Marvel, and what we want out of a Shang-Chi sequel.

Disclaimer: This episode contains spoilers. If you do not wish to have the movie spoiled for you, please watch the film before listening to this podcast.

Due to time constraints this episode does not have a five-minute controversy.

This week Mark; Kelley; Gerald; and newcomer, J.D., join the cast.
