Below, I’ve rounded up some key details you need to know about Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

Abomination In Shang-Chi

In case there was any lingering doubt, Marvel Studios grand poobah Kevin Feige has confirmed that yes, that really was the Abomination in the most recent Shang-Chi trailer. The chonky monster was last seen on the big screen in The Incredible Hulk, where he was played (in human form) by Tim Roth.

But at the very least, his abominable alter-ego will be up on the big screen throwing CGI punches.

Looks like a 45 day window is slowly becoming the new normal in Hollywood. Read More »
