Don't miss a Film Theory! ►

The future of Marvel remains a mystery and the world of Shang-Chi is no different. We know TOO MUCH for me to not suspect that some gigantic surprise is awaiting us in the movie. We know about The Mandarin and the Ten Rings. So what, Theorists, is the movie hiding? I have the answer but you will have to watch to find out!

    The way kevin feige pronounces is actually way closer to the actual Chinese pronunciation than what people say. So respect to him.

      @Isaac Sheu you also don't pronounce the g in shang don't ask me I didn't invent the language

      @Isaac Sheu because it's not for the English language you missed where that's how it's pronounced in Chinese when the pinyin are spelt that way

      That doesn't make sense even for English language. Maybe it's an approximation, but "Wang" is not pronounced like "Wong" and Shang is not pronounced like Shong.

    5. ロッテ
      10 napja

      A like in Wang is pronounced like an o an Chinese so it's pronounced as Wong but spelt with an a, that's how shang is pronounced, pinyin for air is qi which is how chi is pronounced (not saying the chi in shang chi is any particular word because multiple words in Chinese have to e same pinyin just 1 of 4 accents on specific letters)

    definition of a ring- "a ring-shaped or circular object." It literally doesn't need to be finger rings and it's still a ring, so Fin Fang Foom could still be a big stretch honestly

    Sooo, nobody noticed this was a plot point in the comics? Axonn-Karr is the Makluan that the Mandarin stole the rings from. You didn't need to look at the toys Matt, the plot point of the rings belonging to an alien dragon is already canon.

    I was so hyped when I first heard of the mandarin as one of my first exposures was the original I am Iron Man cartoon show with that Mandarin and I loved the idea of the rings to collect and use. Hearing this here really get's my hopes up for a movie I would have otherwise ditched and watched the summary of as I was SURE the ten rings would just be the mcguffin without the actual fun Mandarin behind them. Hope you're right MatPat!

    opinion iron man 3 was the best iron man movie, people didn't like it because of the mandarin. I am 15 so I didn't grow up reading the comics, i knew the mandarin from the animated iron man tv series where everyone was in high school but that was it, so from an out of context view point this movie was great, the twist wasn't

    They put the rings on his wrists so that people didn’t think “infinity gauntlet” when they see the movie. Edit: they will not be using Fing Fang Foom because it sounds racist. (Fact)
