It had been rumored a lot and it even seemed that some merchandising pointed to his appearance, but it seems that finally we will not see Fin Fang Foom in the film “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” / “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”. This is how direct the leading actor has been Simu liu by denying it.
This information comes in a special article that NBC has published to review the actor’s story Simu liu, now that he has become a “Marvel superhero.” There is nothing especially significant or novel, but we do have the direct allusion of the actor, or so the publication affirms, that we won’t see Fin Fang Foom in the movie.
This is what the media publishes after a few words in which the actor assures that the film continues to honor a millennial Asian art form, and that is why many heroes and characters appear to whom their space is dedicated in the film . That more “realistic” approach helps the movie, and so they hint at the absence of certain elements from the comics:
It also helps, Liu said, that some questionable elements of the source material, such as the puzzlingly dragon-shaped being called “Fin Fang Foom,” don’t appear in the film.
Rumors of the appearance of this alien dragon have been sounding long before the filming of the film even began. Information that was left there, in the form of a rumor, but that was gaining importance when seeing according to what merchandising of the film. The truth is that taking into account that this is the character’s first film, the appearance as such of this creature seemed somewhat forced, having so much to tell.
Fin Fang Foom, who made his debut in “Strange Tales # 89” (1961), is an extraterrestrial being from the world of Kakaranathara who came to Earth in ancient China, with the intention of conquering the planet. Using their shapeshifting powers to mimic the human form, aliens infiltrate human society to study it before beginning their conquest. At the same time, Foom was left as a reserve and was placed in a grave in a catatonic state. One man eventually found the alien ship and stole ten rings, eventually becoming the Mandarin.
