Did you know ... ?

  1. In the late 1980s, Stan Lee had considered a film/TV series about Shang-Chi and had in mind Brandon Lee, son of martial arts superstar Bruce Lee, for the role. Shang-Chi was visually based on Bruce Lee so Brandon seemed a fitting choice, but the plan fell through.
  2. Simu Liu, when cast as Shang-Chi, was knowledgeable in taekwondo, gymnastics, and Wing Chun. For his role as the Master of Kung Fu, Liu trained in tai chi, wushu, Muay Thai, pencak silat, Krav Maga, jiu-jitsu, boxing, and street fighting.
  3. One of the lower tier fights in Xialing's fight club had a fight between one of the Widows who appeared in Black Widow (2021) and a fighter enhanced with the extremis treatment from Iron Man 3 (2013).
  4. This is renowned Hong Kong film actor Tony Chiu-Wai Leung's first role in an American film and his first English-speaking role, even though he has always spoken it fluently.
  5. Destin Daniel Cretton said they went through a lot of contenders for the lead role but found the perfect package in Simu Liu. He has the athletic abilities, but he's also a terrific actor, showed fantastic chemistry with Awkwafina, is fluent in English and Mandarin and is comfortable shifting between Western and Eastern cultures. Co-writer Dave Callaham adds that Liu's "code switching" ability was an integral element to the character of Shang-Chi as well.
  6. When Shang-Chi is asked to fight in the arena shirtless, it is a nod to his debut comic where he would appear shirtless throughout his early comic book run. This was in itself an homage to Bruce Lee movies where Lee often fought shirtless.
  7. Meng'er Zhang met action designer Yung Lee while making the movie. The two started dating and by the time the movie wrapped, they were married. To celebrate, Simu Liu took everyone to Disneyland while Awkwafina took everyone to karaoke.
  8. Tony Chiu-Wai Leung knew nothing about the Mandarin, and did not try to research the character. When Marvel Studios contacted him, they gave him full authority to invent his own background for this iteration of the character. He didn't mind playing a villainous role (not his first time, he already played one in Lust, Caution (2007) and Confession of Pain (2006) for example), but he sought to give the character more depth and credibility: "I tried to explore the reasons that could have led him to become who he is. He's a man with history, who craves to be loved. He is a sociopath, a narcissist and a bigot, but he is also human and has a family."
  9. The symbols in the Ten Rings logo are Chinese characters: "quan" (authority), "li" (power), "zhuang" (strong), "wei" (extraordinary), "jie" (outstanding), "shi" (influential), "hong" (grand), "xiong" (mighty), qiang" (strength) and "wei" (dominant).
  10. Simu Liu tweeted in December 2018 about asking Marvel for the role. He later retweeted that original tweet on July 20, 2019, thanking them.
  11. Tony Chiu-Wai Leung trained for the role of the Mandarin, even though Destin Daniel Cretton said he didn't need to do so since much of the action would involve the rings and computer-generated imagery.
  12. The movie started filming in March 2020 but was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Filming resumed at the end of July 2020 and ended in October 2020. This production was recognized as the first feature film to reopen Disney operations globally since the COVID-19 lockdown. They managed to successfully wrap production in Australia with zero positive cases and zero production standstills.
  13. The Mandarin in the comics (and in various animated TV shows) wears ten alien rings on his fingers. In this film, the rings were revised to be Hung Gar iron rings worn on the forearms (five on each arm). These rings are traditionally used in martial arts training to strengthen the arms/fists. This change was made to incorporate Chinese culture, and because cosmic jewelry had already been done with Thanos the Titan in the form of the Infinity Stones and Infinity Gauntlet.
  14. They pitched the idea of Morris - the six legged wing creature without a face - to Kevin Feige, expecting it to get shot down, but surprisingly, Feige gave them the go-ahead. The creature still felt too odd so Destin Daniel Cretton and Dave Callaham made a wager that if Morris made it all the way through production and actually ended up in the film, Callaham would get a tattoo of him. Callaham said on the commentary "as of this recording I have not procured that tattoo mostly due to Covid issues, but I will do so."
  15. Benedict Wong surveyed the bar set for the end scene before filming began, examined the chairs and tabletop, and told Destin Daniel Cretton he was ready. He didn't tell anyone he was going to walk up and shove apart the two chairs (and their occupants), so those are natural reactions.
  16. Xialing ( Meng'er Zhang) was originally going to a have red streak hair extension, but this was dropped a month into filming on Zhang's request. Zhang had read a Teen Vogue covering how frequently rebellious Asian women in popular media are given such an accessory, so she didn't want it anymore.
  17. Katy calls Trevor a jester and Trevor responds "Nuncle! Nuncle!" This is how the Fool addresses King Lear in the William Shakespeare play. In Iron Man 3 (2013), Aldrich Killian said of Trevor, "His Lear was the toast of Croydon."
  18. Simu Liu put on 10 lbs. of muscle to play Shang-Chi.
  19. For her role as Katy, Awkwafina trained in car drifting and archery.
  20. Film dedicated to Bradley James Allan, who was the stunt coordinator for this movie. Allan was known for his work behind the stunts of Jackie Chan. He died on 7 August 2021 at 48.
  21. Although they share no scenes together, Benedict Wong was really excited to appear in a film alongside one of his heroes, Tony Chiu-Wai Leung.
  22. The red and black suit Shang Chi acquires at Ta Lo is a homage to the suit he wore in the Jonathan Hickman "Avengers" comics.
  23. This is Simu Liu's first lead role in a film, having previously had supporting roles in his career.
  24. Simu Liu found out about getting the role of Shang-Chi after waking up from a nap, in his underwear and eating shrimp crackers. He stated that he got a call from Kevin Feige giving him the role along with asking him to come to Comic Con in four days.
  25. Shang-Chi's sister Xialing runs the Golden Daggers club in Macau. In the comics, the Golden Daggers were a criminal organization led by Shang-Chi's sister (who was named Zheng Bao Yu in the comics), who established them as a rival empire to her father's.
  26. It was important to the filmmakers to make it clear that Ta Lo is more than just a village of people standing guard with bows, arrows, and swords. "Ta Lo extends far beyond the shores of their village, Ta Lo is a region and has cities."they have technologies well beyond humanities even if this village has taken on a more "monkish" mentality.
  27. The filmmakers cite Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), Kung Fu Hustle (2004), Tai Chi Master (1993), the The Matrix (1999) series, Donnie Yen's "Ip Man" films and Jackie Chan films as an influence on the martial arts action. Michelle Yeoh starred in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000).
  28. When Trevor Slattery and group first arrive in Ta Lo, the car brakes suddenly because a horse-like creature walks in front of it. Trevor says "What's it looking at me for?" This is a direct nod to his Don Logan character in Sexy Beast (2000), when a goat walks in front of his car and he says the exact same line.
  29. Wenwu is named after the Chinese dual concept of wen (civil administration) and wu (martial administration).
  30. Destin Daniel Cretton and Dave Callaham acknowledge that bamboo scaffolding fights have a rich history in action films, but they wanted to highlight theirs by having it take place high up against a skyscraper.
  31. The producers for the film briefly discussed the idea of Ant-Man appearing in the film due to both him and Shang-Chi living in San Francisco, but ultimately decided it would derail from the main story.
  32. Many of the scenes were visually inspired by Akira Toriyama's popular manga and anime series Dragon Ball (1986), which Destin Daniel Cretton is a fan of. The "Kamehameha" energy wave is also mentioned by Katy in the film.
  33. The movie made $94.4 million in the US box office, shattering the box office records for the 4-day Labor Day weekend by beating Halloween (2007)'s $30.5 million record.
  34. Awkwafina was the first actor cast in the film.
  35. "Shang" and "Xia" mean "up" and "down", respectively in Chinese and are written by two different characters that look mirrored.
  36. The first English line isn't spoken until about 10 minutes into the film.
  37. VFX supervisor Christopher Townsend took to the water map sequence eagerly since he was tired of designing light holograms in the previous Marvel Cinematic Universe films.
  38. Destin Daniel Cretton has wanted to include "Hotel California" in all of his movies since high school, he stated, "but I had not been able to afford it" Dave Callaham writes needle-drops into his scripts often, and his own white whale is Cinderella's "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)."
  39. They weren't sure how they were going to make the runaway bus stop, so Destin Daniel Cretton asked Bradley James Allan for advice. He took a few minutes then came to them with the idea of the garbage truck coming into play and helping grind the bus to a halt.
  40. The bus fight is loosely inspired both by Jackie Chan and Buster Keaton.
  41. The 25th film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  42. The film was not allowed to premiere in China due to strong restrictions imposed by the Chinese government.
  43. Destin Daniel Cretton originally wanted to shoot Shang-Chi's underwater scenes actually underwater but they didn't have the time and it would have been a real pain. Simu Liu would have to hold his breath for a long time, so they had him on a harness and shot in slow motion with a wind machine.
  44. Filmed almost entirely in Australia. Shooting was postponed during the Covid-19 pandemic. When it resumed, all returning cast and crew had to go into a two-week quarantine due to Australia's tough pandemic laws.
  45. Destin Daniel Cretton talked to Tony Chiu-Wai Leung about Wenwu, and the question arose as to whether or not the man had the ability to love. Cretton stated "Tony emphatically said yes." Leung saw the character as a man who genuinely loves his family but doesn't know how to show it.
  46. The fight club in Macau was one large physical set you could actually walk through as opposed to a creation made from numerous small set-ups.
  47. Death Dealer is based on the character of the same name (an agent of Shang-Chi's father who wore dark clothing and a skull mask), but is also based on Cho Lin, a priest who trained Shang-Chi.
  48. Shang-Chi is the first superhero film with an Asian leading protagonist for Marvel Studios.
  49. In the "Hands of Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu" comic books, Razor Fist has two blade prosthetics and no hands.
  50. It was considered to have both Shang-Chi and the Mandarin be introduced in the post-credits scene of The Avengers (2012), but it ultimately didn't happen due to the Beijing development team not wanting the franchise to have a Chinese villain.
  51. Donnie Yen was considered for the role of the Wenwu/The Mandarin before Tony Chiu-Wai Leung was cast.
  52. In the comics, Shang-Chi was originally introduced as the son of a character named Fu Manchu, "an obviously problematic deeply stereotypical character" director Destin Daniel Cretton stated. And then Marvel changed Fu into the Mandarin. Their depictions in the comics weren't "particularly helpful or was always a bit problematic", so they rebuilt the character from the ground up, but part of his baggage was that he was still the leader of the Ten Rings, which had a previous appearance in Iron Man 3 (2013).
  53. Destin Daniel Cretton pitched the bus fight as a concept to Marvel Studios, calling it a "fight sequence that keeps the stakes rising".
  54. Destin Daniel Cretton sees all of the action scenes as having their own story purpose, and the one between Shang-Chi and Death Dealer is no different. It's a fight between a student and a teacher, Cretton stated "and this scene really is about Shang-Chi fighting himself, fighting that urge to get back into who he was as a child."
  55. Tsai Chin had played a double role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, first as Agent May's mother in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013), here as Katy's grandmother.
  56. Before the fight on the bus, Shang-Chi says in Mandarin "I don't want trouble." This is a staple for what Jackie Chan says in his movies, most notably Rush Hour (1998).
  57. Like Black Widow (2021), which debuted two months before it, the movie contains extensive BMW product placement. Its M8 and i8 coupes are shown early in the movie in its San Francisco-set scenes, and Katy steals a then-prototype iX3 - not yet publicly revealed when filming commenced - for their journey to Ta Lo.
  58. YouTuber martial artist and stunt performer Andy Le announced that he was playing Death Dealer after his poster appeared.
  59. Tony Chiu-Wai Leung was given the script a month before filming.
  60. When Shang is shown running, director Destin Daniel Cretton advised Simu Liu to "tap into his Tom Cruise."
  61. Development for the film increased rapidly after the success of Crazy Rich Asians (2018).
  62. Dave Callaham wanted Wenwu to have two giant praying mantises by his side during the end battle, but he couldn't convince anyone to sign on to the idea.
  63. Early in the film, Shaun mentions having been once mistaken for being Korean. In Kim's Convenience (2016), Simu Liu plays a member of a Korean-Canadian family.
  64. Director and co-writer Destin Daniel Cretton's first instinct when thinking about who to cast as Xu Wenwu was Tony Chiu-Wai Leung, but he also admitted at the time "there's no way we'll ever get him." They feel that bringing him on board Leung was one of the first actors cast was a real tone-setter for the film.
  65. Tony Chiu-Wai Leung was thrilled to join the film, as he is a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  66. Both Michelle Yeoh (Ying Nan) and Tsai Chin (Waipo) have been Bond girls: Yeoh co-starred in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) whilst Chin featured in You Only Live Twice (1967) and also had a cameo role in Casino Royale (2006). The pair also both previously appeared in 'Memoirs of a Geisha' (2005).
  67. Marvel Studios released both the teaser poster and teaser trailer and Entertainment Weekly released photos of the movie on Simu Liu's 32nd birthday.
  68. During the bus fight, a woman has her laptop split in half; she actually would have been able to recover her work because she was using an HP FOLIO 9470M, which has a hard drive on the side.
  69. Destin Daniel Cretton wondered what it was like directing a VFX heavy sequence and expected it would leave him in the wings, he stated "but it's much more collaborative and involved than I expected and way harder than I anticipated." The challenge includes pairing story beats and narrative necessities with the visual effects.
  70. Wenwu's fortress is in China's mountainous Hunan province. This is based on Fu Manchu's home in "Special Marvel Edition" #15, which was indeed situated in Hunan (under the name House of the Deadly Hand).
  71. Awkwafina, Ronny Chieng, and Michelle Yeoh previously starred in Crazy Rich Asians (2018).
  72. This movie was going to be made by Paramount Pictures before Disney bought Marvel.
  73. This film marks Michelle Yeoh's second appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She previously appeared as one of Yondu's former Ravager mates in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017).
  74. Reunites Michelle Yeoh with Tony Chiu-Wai Leung after Butterfly and Sword (1993), 28 years later.
  75. Part of Destin Daniel Cretton's pitch to land the film saw him show a scene of four friends hanging out in a bar talking, after which he said "imagine this scene with all Asian Americans".
  76. Destin Daniel Cretton's first commercial action film project after several successful independent films.
  77. The final film features over 1,700 visual effects shots.
  78. The song "A Whole New World" sung by Katy and Shang-Chi in a karaoke clearly foreshadows their journey in Ta Lo, the song was in the Disney's Aladdin (1992). Awkwafina will be in the upcoming Disney live-action remake of The Little Mermaid (2023) as the voice of the seagull Scuttle.
  79. Marvel films were never a goal for Destin Daniel Cretton until he heard the character Shang-Chi was entering the MCU.
  80. The end credit scene is something Weta VFX supervisor Sean Walker has rarely talked about. Walker and his team were called late in the day to deliver the sequence that features Bruce Banner and Captain Marvel in holographic form with Wong. Wong makes his second cameo of the movie, grabbing Shang-Chi and Katy at a bar and taking them through a portal to meet the Avengers as they discuss the history of the 10 rings and their importance. "I just sat down two compositors and two effects artists, and just said, 'Come up with something and let your imagination go wild.' Within four days, they came up with the entire sequence," says Walker. Walker notes Captain Marvel's suit was digital because it only exists in digital form. Additionally, it was the first time Walker had ever done holographic effects. The sequence was filmed on multiple plates with Liu, Awkwafina and Wong on one stage, Larson on another, and Ruffalo "in his own laboratory, but we had to bring them all together into one final shot."
  81. Ludi Lin, Steven Yeun, Mike Moh, Alex Landi, Lewis Tan, Edward Zo, Liviu Covalschi, and Ross Butler were considered for the role of Shang-Chi.
  82. This is the second movie where Awkwafina has apologized onscreen for her poor Chinese. The first was The Farewell (2019).
  83. The Mandarin in the comics most commonly wears the 10 rings on his fingers, but after watching a variety of martial arts films, they decided to move them to his wrists.
  84. As they arrive in Macau, Katy and Shang-Chi drive past The Casino Lisboa. Macau was once a Portuguese colony and Lisbon is Portugal's capital (Lisboa, in Portuguese).
  85. In 2001, Stephen Norrington announced that he had agreed to direct the film. Later on in 2005, Woo-Ping Yuen was signed on to direct.
  86. Fala Chen auditioned shortly after finishing her studies at the Juilliard School.
  87. Simu Liu and Stephanie Hsu both first appeared in the same episode of Awkwafina's show, Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens (2020), titled Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens: Grandma & Chill (2020)), in which Liu portrays Garbage Boy, and Hsu portrays recurring character Shu Shu.
  88. Bobby Lee auditioned for Jon Jon and lost the role to Ronny Chieng. He has joked that Chieng always beats him out for roles and that he might refuse to watch the film.
  89. In Xialing's room, there is an AC/DC poster, implying she is a fan of the band. AC/DC songs are well-known to be part of the Iron Man (2008)'s soundtrack as well the sequels.
  90. Tsai Chin played Fu Manchu's daughter Lin Tang in five films starring Christopher Lee in the 1960s.
  91. Shot under the working title of "Steamboat".
  92. Stan Lee intended the titular role for Bruce Lee's son, Brandon. Ruihua, Katy's brother, is played by Dallas Liu, who played Bruce Lee in the Who Was Show.
  93. The car stolen by the main characters to get to Ta Lo is a BMW iX3, which is a fully electric car. You could notice it by how quiet its engine sounds.
  94. 88rising released the album for Shang-Chi's official soundtrack. You can see its logo "88" in the credits. The CEO of 88rising, Sean Miyashiro, once said 88rising is "The Disney of Asian hip-hop". Simu Liu also sang one of the songs, Hot Soup, in the album. Another song, Lose Control, is sung by famous Singaporean singer/songwriter JJ Lin. Lazy Susan featuring famous Chinese rapper MaSiWei, who often raps in Sichuanese Mandarin.
  95. First film by Destin Daniel Cretton to have a predominantly Asian cast.
  96. Highest-grossing film of Destin Daniel Cretton's career.
  97. Lewis Tan auditioned for the part of Shang-Chi.
  98. The Mandarin is played by Hong Kong actor Tony Chiu-Wai Leung. Mandarin is a Chinese dialect spoken in mainland China and Taiwan but Leung is from Hong Kong, whose native dialect is Cantonese.
  99. Films mentioned during the commentary recording include The 36th chamber of Shaolin (1978), Clueless (1995), Rush Hour (1998), The Matrix (1999), Kung Fu Hustle (2004), Scott Pilgrim vs The World (2010), Oldboy (2003), and The Five Obstructions (2003).
  100. The jungle trees shuffling effect and the nine-tailed fox also appeared in an earlier Chinese movie Once Upon A Time (2017) starring Liu YiFei.
  101. Although there were many opportunities in the screenplay, the Wilhelm Scream was not used in this film for a falling or injured character.
  102. Ying Li and Ying Nan were originally going to be named Jiang Li and Jiang Nan.
  103. Shang-Chi's apartment is 1045 Euclid Avenue, San Francisco, CA, which is not a real address. However, this address actually exists in southern California: 1045 Euclid Avenue, San Gabriel, CA.
  104. Deborah Chow, Justin Tipping and Alan Yang were all considered as directors before Destin Daniel Cretton landed the gig.
  105. Ronny Chieng, Awkwafina, and Michelle Yeoh previously worked together in the Crazy Rich Asians (2018).
  106. During a flashback sequence, young Shang-Chi is seen playing Dance Dance Revolution with his parents (and his father tries to cheat). The song "Butterfly (Upswing Mix)" is briefly heard. The same game and song were used in a similar cutaway scene in WandaVision: All-New Halloween Spooktacular! (2021), with Billy and Tommy Maximoff being the players.
  107. Those charged with building the CG dragons from scratch took exceptional care of the work. In fact, one of the film's VFX supervisors revealed a single person labored over the dragon, intricately placing every scale individually on the water-dwelling beast. "It almost killed them, but yes, we did have one hand place 8,000 scales on the dragon," Weta Digital VFX Supervisor Sean Walker explained "He actually created the initial sculpt and so he wanted to look after it as a whole, so yeah, e had one modeler that did the entire dragon pretty much. And he hand-modeled every single one of those scales." The production wanted to pack the dragon with as many Easter eggs as possible. As such, they used the eyes of Fala Chen -- the actor that played Shang-Chi's late mother -- for the Great Protector. "We kept looking at Shang's mother for reference for almost everything," Walker added. "Even the Dragon's eyes were initially based off by Fala Chen's eyes, the actress who played Shang's mom."
  108. Shang-Chi (and his mother) uses soft martial arts, such as taiji quan, to counter hard martial arts, such as Kung fu against his father. This is a classic dispute in old-school Hong Kong Kung fu movies.
  109. The animals in Ta Lo represent specific concepts: the Chinese guardian lion represents peace, supremacy, energy and happiness; the qilin (the creature that Trevor calls a "weird horse") represents longevity and prosperity; the fenghuang (phoenix) represents immortality; the jiuweihu (nine-tails fox) represents supernatural powers, peace and prosperity; the dijiang (Morris) represents chaos and confusion, and enjoys singing and dancing, an appropriate animal to befriend the actor Trevor Slattery.
  110. Mark Ruffalo appears in a mid-credits scene as Bruce Banner. He is no longer "Professor Hulk" (the stable midpoint between Banner and Hulk) as he was in his last appearance in Avengers: Endgame (2019) but his arm is still in a sling after injuring himself using the Infinity Stones.
  111. Emil Blonsky, the antagonist of The Incredible Hulk (2008), makes a cameo appearance fighting with Doctor Strange's colleague, Wong. The brief appearance is a lead into She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (2022), where Blonsky has a major role.
  112. Shang Chi's apartment features a Kung Fu Hustle (2004) film poster. Wah Yuen, who plays Master Guang Bo, had appeared in that film as the Landlord, who is a retired kung fu master.
  113. The Ten Rings logo at the end of the film is updated to reflect Xialing's leadership, and features a lotus with a skull. In the comics, Xialing (with the name of Fah Lo Suee) took the title of the Cursed Lotus.
  114. Shang-Chi's mother Ying Li hails from the land of Ta Lo. In the Marvel Comics, Ta Lo had only appeared in one comic, Thor #301 (1980). The land was based on the Chinese heaven ("Daluo Tian"), and was populated by the Xian ("immortals"), a group of beings mistaken for gods, similar to Marvel's Asgardians and Eternals. The film does not bring up this mythic angle, and merely has Ta Lo be another world in the Marvel Multiverse.
  115. The movie marks the return of Ben Kingsley as Trevor Slattery, after his appearance in Iron Man 3 (2013) and the short Marvel One-Shot: All Hail the King (2014). In addition, it reveals his fate after the short, which ended in a cliffhanger.
  116. The 10 rings were created by the Makluan alien race, and each contains the soul of a long dead cosmic warrior. Director Destin Daniel Cretton has hinted that the "beacon" mentioned in the mid-credit scene is summoning the Makluan race for a future MCU appearance.
  117. They knew early on the film would feature a dragon, but Destin Daniel Cretton hoped it wouldn't end up merely as a big flashy effect without a bigger purpose. Happily "the dragon became rooted in something a bit more emotional and more connected to who Shang-Chi is and who he becomes." Co-writer Dave Callaham had spoken with his Chinese mother and mentioned the film would include a dragon and she told him it had to be a good guy. When he asked her why, her response was "because dragons are protectors."
  118. This film features the Mandarin as Shang-Chi's father and enemy. The Mandarin is traditionally the enemy of Iron Man/Tony Stark, but since Tony Stark had died in Avengers: Endgame (2019), he was brought in for this film. In the comics, Shang-Chi's father was the Chinese criminal mastermind Fu Manchu, a character originally created by Sax Rohmer, but he acquired enough renown and infamy to appear in the Marvel Comics. In 2010, the character was renamed Zheng Zu.
  119. Meng'er Zhang reveals what it was like filming the post-credits scene, she stated: "Yeah, that scene was a really, really cool scene. And I just want to feel that Xialing owns it. So I just sit there like I own it, you know? And also I think between Xialing and Shang-Chi, Xialing is the one who is like their father more. She is ambitious, she is more ambitious than Shang-Chi. And she actually is power hungry. And so I think she wants it, she wants. And yeah, it feels great."
  120. In the mid-credits scene, Wong transports Shang-Chi and Katy to Kamar-Taj to analyze the rings and decode their origin. It's revealed that the rings are made of a matter unknown on Earth and they are thousands of years old, being created for an unknown alien race. It could be a hint for the movie Eternals (2021), where the new alien races The Eternals and The Deviants are featured, as well as the Celestials seen briefly in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014).
  121. This is Mark Ruffalo's eighth appearance in the MCU, three of them only in post-credit scenes: Iron Man 3 (2013), Captain Marvel (2019) and this movie.
  122. Trevor Slattery's dijiang Morris is voiced by Dee Bradley Baker. This is the second 2021 comic-book feature Baker has appeared in; he had previously voiced Sebastian the rat in The Suicide Squad (2021).
  123. First movie featuring Wong ( Benedict Wong) without Dr. Strange ( Benedict Cumberbatch), possibly alluding to the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) where Strange teams-up with Peter Parker/Spider-Man ( Tom Holland).
  124. In the mid-credits scene, Carol Danvers ( Brie Larson) appears in a cameo. This marks Larson's fourth collaboration with director Destin Daniel Cretton, following Short Term 12 (2013), The Glass Castle (2017) and Just Mercy (2019).
  125. The shot of Katy reacting to her arrow shot into the big monster's neck was filmed just one week before the film's premiere and just one month before the commentary was recorded.
  126. Awkwafina voiced a female dragon in Disney's Raya and the Last Dragon (2021). This film marks the first appearance of a dragon (also female) in the MCU. However, a dragon also was mentioned in the Netflix series Iron Fist (2017) by the main star Danny Rand (played by Finn Jones). This dragon was Shou Lao the Undying, protector of another trans-dimensional Chinese realm - K'un Lun.
