Marvel has made clear that they want to be more inclusive in their approach to their characters, with last year seeing Black Panther, the studios’ first release with a black lead breaking records. Since then, the studio has also gone on to make a female-centric Captain Marvel, which released in theaters just last week. Both movies have broken numerous box-office records, showcasing the audience appeal for diversity in comic book movies.

Shang-Chi will be the studios’ first film with an Asian lead, and presumably a primarily Asian cast. This, while opening the doors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even more, will also lead to a better grip on international markets.
