First Reactions To Shang-Chi Hit Social Media

Full reviews are coming later, but here's what the critics are saying after first seeing it.


Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be released nationwide on September 3, but it recently had its theatrical premiere in Los Angeles. While that means the rest of us will still have to hang in and wait for a few more weeks to see it, the good news there is Angelenos, including critics and folks in the movie industry, seem to be loving it.

The most praised aspect of the film is the action sequences--which shouldn't come as a shock to fans who have been following Marvel movies all this time. And also, if you're able to (safely) see the movie come September, many have confirmed there is a post-credits scene.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be followed by Eternals in November and Spider-Man: No Way Home in December. Beyond that, Marvel has lots more films lined up for 2022 and 2023, including Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and The Marvels.
