Really looking forward to Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings this weekend.


You had me excited, given the title, then read that it’s Marvel stuff. Will it be a stand-alone movie? Or do I have to know some things?

You don’t have to have soaked in the entire Marvel universe, but it sounds like there’s some significant tie ins. In particular, Iron Man 3 and the one-shot “All Hail the King” that’s on the Thor: The Dark World discs (and likely available independently). There’s a few other places where The Ten Rings have sort of been lurking in the background.

Having said that, from everything I’m seeing, you don’t really NEED to have watched any of the rest of the movies to enjoy this one on it’s own, you’ll just miss some of the context/subtext going on.
