Marvel reportedly looking to cast Asian actor as Shang-Chi in the Iron Fist series




- Apparently there were suggestions of Marvel doing a series starring Shang-Chi instead of Danny Rand because of the controversy (really??? I don't believe it.)
- Marvel is auditioning Asian actors only for the role of Shang Chi, a character who has worked both with Iron Fist and Luke Cage and is son of the villain Fu Manchu.
- Shang Chi could have a spin-off series depending on the reception to his character (really??? I don't believe it.) x2

So what do you think, ONTD? Will you be watching Iron Fist despite the disappointing lead actor, if it at least gives us good Asian characters? Are you side-eyeing Marvel's obvious damage control PR happening rn? Do you actually believe Marvel would be willing to give Shang-Chi his own series?
