Film Theory: The Giant MONSTER Hiding in Shang-Chi! (Shang Chi Trailer)
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.

    • AiCDragon

      @刘志航 "I am a chinese"... funny. So am I. And kt depends on the dialect.

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

    • ロッテ

      @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

    • Isaac Sheu

      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.

    Bet they're gonna rename the dragon to just "Fin" or "Fang"

    It's a member of fing fang foom's race in the comics that bring the rings to earth so ya

    I'm sorry matpat but last time you tried to predict something months before it came out that didn't end so well. Cough Cough FNAF 4 Cough Cough

    Fin Fang Foom is gibberish. So they renamed him to The Guardian.

    In one of the Shang Chi Chi lego sets there is actually a dragon but he doesn’t look like Fing Fang Foom Edit: I just heard Matt talk about them

    At the very least there’s no way fin fang foom is the great protector since the designs are far to different from fooms normal design

  • jacklanD

    SHONG SHI really matpat sorry but SHONG SHI

  • Necrocasmic

    Actually there's a old iron Man cartoon with the Mandarin and rings all In it

  • Samurex Atlas
    Samurex Atlas

    So, The Great Protector is NOT Fing Fang Foom, confirmed by someone working in the movie, I heard it on New Rockstars where they also showed the tweet. But we do know that for one reason or another, from the trailer, that Shang-Chi does end up meeting that sacred water dragon.

      @Gaven Tovar No. shang-chi's father is trying to enter some mystical realm.

      Maybe they have to stop Fin Fang Foom and help from The Great Protector is the only way they can.

    Dont know if you know this but in one of the recent trailers, there is a person using eldritch magic against the abomination like giant implying that dr strange or wong might be in this movie or its just one of the students.

    It's been confirmed that fing fang foom will not be in this movie. This dragon is someone else. Although everything else is lining up pretty good

    U know, my english teacher told me once that the toys released to advertise a movie before it releases tells you a lot about the movie. Guess they were right.


    Sensei mat pat could Godzilla be in the marvel universe some day because he fought the avengers in the old marvel comics?

    ...But Fin Fang Foom only has 8 fingers...? where do the other 2 rings go- oh... oh god...

    Fing fang foom was also hinted at in the new disney plus series M.O.D.O.K

  • Clairavoya-SSB

    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

  • AK Watch
    AK Watch

    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.

  • Jaycee Ocampo

    Going back here after seeing the new trailer and look at that they really showed a dragon

  • BiFrost MC
    BiFrost MC

    the ten rings are actually also called "the makulan rings" which is REALLY hinting to the fact that gfing fang foom brought them from outer space!

  • 出Enigma

    Ah yes, the most terrifying alien monster villain, *Fin Fang Foom*


    Ok the fight scenes arnt 5hat actually good but that because they were doing it so slow so it looked fake but besides that, I really liked the series, the characters, and ESPECIALLY the powers!!! Cmon I can't be the only one?!?!?!

    5:38 - Personally, I was happy with Trevor. The Mandarin is such a minefield of cultural insensitivity that I was happy they sidestepped it completely.

  • TheRandomYoYo

    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!

  • Eliza Carrie

    I groaned loudly and angrily at the dragon ring reveal, not because I think he’s wrong or he’s gone off the deepend, because the idea is so ridiculous and stupid and I definitely think Disney and Marvel would ACTUALLY GO FOR IT 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ CMON MARVEL WHY CANT WE JUST LET ASIAN ACTION RINGS BE ASIAN ACTION RINGS no no no no it HASSSSS to be a mega monster gimmick

    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

    Iron Fist season 2 was pretty good tho

  • BN_Andrew

    Except for the fact that Fin Fang Foom has 4 fingers on each hand, which adds up to 8 fingers. Where do the rest 2 rings go ?

    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)
