"United in the selling uses big into collectibles. I think those are the ones that you really want to Home in on the most for sure definitely want home on those the most shot out to shanxi shanxi forty-three consecutive week in a row has been crushing it in the box office. Numbers damn good. Of course i'm talking about marvel's shanxi and the legend of the ten rings a continues to hold that number one spot at the box office over the weekend. They tallied in another twenty one point. Seven million dollars You know down a little bit over thirty percent from the previous weekend. But i mean so far domestically. They've done a bell over one hundred and seventy five million They've done about that's domestically they've done a bow close to four hundred million worldwide grey fucking numbers gray fucking numbers. Meanwhile you look at that new. Clint eastwood movie What's the name of that Cry macho not good. They've only brought in box office tally of barely over four million dollars and like real quick. If you want to pick my brain and be like what's going on on one thing that you gotta understand is cleanse woods movies as of late has been targeting. An older audience okay. We're talking about people that are we're talking about people that are maybe in their late forties and up. I really wanted kind of tease. The fifty and up. But i i'm gonna leave it at late forties and up. you know. Just the tone just overall what was being covered in his movies. That's really targeting. An older audience. That's not exactly targeting. A younger audience right so and look when you look at the pandemic when you factor in the pandemic you know. The older folks are still pretty. I know because. I deal with the public when i go to work on a day to day basis and i can't tell you how many times i've talked to older folks that are really skinny about being out in about right now even though they're fully vaccinated they are still very you know right down to the point. They they still don't even feel comfortable going to the grocery store okay so whereas the younger folks be younger folks especially if they've gotten their vaccination and all that the younger folks they're more inclined to yeah go. Go see this yeah. I'm good i'm healthy. I got my shots on. I'm good. i'm still practicing smart social distancing. I'm good they're more inclined to and that's why it's like night and day right now with what you're saying of the Of the box office numbers in is why. It's night and day Right now you know. It's it's kinda sad because you look at clan eastwood's movies last couple that he's put out. He's put a lot of money as far as the budget. He's put a lot of money in these movies. And so only have but you know may you can't is it. Even a fraction keven call a fraction. I mean if you have a budget of like fifty million.

The Bible says, be not deceived whatsoever, Man so eventually also reef. Alright, it's four p.m. on Wall Street. Do you know where your money is? Welcome to financial issues where we align reality with true conservative talk radio. You can count on financial issues that you need to know. Well preserved for our Children. This the last best hope of man on earth or will sentence them to take the last step into 1000 years of darkness. We were simply applied to government that common sense that we all you In our daily lives. Now here's your host, Dan Sylvia. Good morning. Welcome back to financial issues on Dan Syria. It is September 9th Thursday. Welcome back then you are here with us for the next three hours. As we look at the stock market in the futures market futures are all in positive. Territory, but just humming right around the flatline, so not a lot of movement. A lot of changes the S and P has already seen the most of the movement. Right now. Just vacillating between red and green oil is Down oils down about three quarters of 1%. We'll see where that ends up for the day. But right now we're sitting at 68 85, so the S and P futures again flat. Dow is trying to break a three day losing streak. So we'll see if they can do that Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, all negative days. So, um, watching that very closely. Very interesting as we take a look at the markets. And what is happening? One of the things that is happening is you may have read some things yesterday or saw something or heard some things on business radio. But so many people are talking about so many big time analysts and big time investment firms and very well known Commentators that are working in the financial industry talking about there are eight or nine or 10 or five, whatever it might be things that they are concerned about. Headed into the month of October or finishing at the month of September. I find it all very, very comical number one, the five or six or seven things that they're all outlining are all the same. They're all saying the same thing, and I would totally disagree with everything that they have said No, I'm not. Disagreeing with those five arse or six or 10 things that they're talking about. I'm not disagreeing that there are things we should be, I guess concerned about sure they are a concern. First of all, though, you lose a little bit of credibility when you're talking about those things, some Eight or nine months late. So if you want to help, you might have been talking about them Some months ago, you might have been talking about what the end of this year is going to look like you might have been talking about what real GDP is going to look like or what real growth. Looks like you might be talking about what is happening in the economy and stop focusing or just the markets. But I know that the vast majority of them refused to believe that the economy has anything to do with the markets. I know that sounds ridiculous, but it seems to be the way that The world is going and has been for some time. But in the end, the economy will prevail. The economy and the underlying fundamentals or the lack thereof of the economy will prevail. But we still are talking about markets. We're talking about stocks. We're talking about buying and selling and long term long term being about six months, Apparently Long term investing and what that means and what that looks like. Everybody is still focused on what everybody wants to be focused on, and that is Making a buck quickly. With total disregard to what is really happening. I see it again this morning in the Wall Street Journal. And other publications throughout the euro zone and Asia this morning. Talking about the same things. They are talking about market indicators and what is happening in the market. Look, you know we can talk about that all day. If that makes everybody happy. And that's fine if they all want to talk about those things, but without knowing the why and where it might be headed. Um I hate to break it to all of the wonderful analyst. I hate to break it to him. But at some point in time, whether you want to like it or not, you've got to start talking about economic indicators of what's happening with the Federal Reserve, and some of them have mentioned the Federal Reserve. But they're not talking about what? Why and how they're just talking about the Federal Reserve. I say that because it's a source of frustration to me as I've been talking about it for some time. And it shouldn't be a source of The frustration. It should be a source of Hey, I need to write a book or I wrote a book or this is why you got to subscribe to my $450, a month newsletter.

"So i that's how i saw it. I mean the the kinda a just to layer onto a. You're both saying but maybe especially when rebecca's was noting the good thing about this moment were in is if this is not the the american movie that really juices you up just like wait for the next one to come along. You know what i'm saying. We have like three or four. Additional ones in the pipeline. And i mean whether you're talking about like you know. Ms marvel or whether you're talking about In the end the marvels right. She's on the big screen. Hilly seinfeld seinfeld is going to be in in hawkeye. Although much of explicitly being defined as asian american You've got The turtles coming. You know you want if you want your agents to be like god like just crazy situations but yeah i mean you know it's it's really amazing That we're in this moment. And i i guess part of the reason why we don't have to sweat quite as much that feeling like these don't have to be the one and only anymore. That's that's a big thing. Yeah and i. I i kinda hated that feeling of like all we have to like. You know we have to like it no matter what you know because it was the only but now that you mentioned he's not have miss more will coming out we have you know attorney and and then we could even say randall. Park aquaman humorless superhero. He's in it you know. There's an the the fact that i do. But i do feel like sometimes it's just like all. Oh if if shanxi doesn't succeed and they're gonna shut us out and i. I just don't like having that feeling anymore. And i think it's still very much a feeling i have about like if x. doesn't succeed then we're not gonna get y and z rock. We're gonna be. We're no longer going to be able to see our stories anymore but there's a scarcity mentality right sort of like this idea of like we. We only get this one like maybe people think that. That's i feel like we need to get away from that and also we need to stop holding up like this being the one that's gonna carry everything like no one film should have to shoulder that i said that again. I said that with crazy rejection. So i feel like we're a couple movies down the line. Where maybe we can we. Maybe we've sort of trained ourselves to really think like. Oh yeah they're we have room to breathe and have different kinds of stories within our community..

"Funny. It's leading into our first movie. Shanxi. The Legend of the 10 rings, Um, Marvel and Disney's new epic adventure movie. I talked to the director. Of the film, So Yeah, we had a great conversation, and he's so proud of this film, and I'm excited for everyone to see it. Is this a lesser known marvel comic Because I've never heard of Shanxi. Yes, yes, lesser known comic and you know, it's you know, it's about a martial arts Master Shan. She confronts the past. So he left behind when he's drawn into his web of mysterious 10 rings organization and I'm telling you any Listen and watch for the star of this film by Simeulue. Our next marvel Action star. I mean, he is just tailor made. He has it turned in a great performance. Um, and he's funny. He's incredible action star. I mean, an awkward Xena. She provides the comic relief the movie steeped in Asian culture and mysticism, You know, incredible action. Plenty of part. This is one of my favorites and just what Black Panther did for the young black community, you know, for a marble hero of their own. This is going to happen in the Asian community because not only is a cast full of Asian Actors. But like I said, the mysticism and Chinese culture of it's just It was just so well done, At least from my perspective. It was just well done, and I believe or not. I want to see it again. It's been a long time because I want to go back and you know the movie. This is only in theaters, though Disney is not streaming it on Disney Plus, which is really unusual, so we're going to see how the box office president's weekend as Labor Day weekend. It's going to really be a test. For people going back to the theater and see how well the box office is doing because things are not good right now, when did that open by the way Because I passed by the theater yesterday, and I noticed a lot was full, and I figured that was probably what everybody was saying. Yeah, you know, you know, it's funny that used to open on opening weekend which met on Friday. Now they do Thursday night screenings for the past four or five years, So they started him on Thursday night. You can see Probably two or three Showing last night. They get a jump on the weekend, especially anybody weekend. You know, we've got three or four day holiday coming up here and, yeah, it started last night, so I didn't see what the box office returns were. But I'm crossing my fingers because if you're gonna go back to the theater do you want to see some pretty incredible There's something could take the family to its got the built in Easter eggs at the end of movie Don't leave. The credit, you know, because you're gonna see some really cool stuff. It ties in the Avengers or ties in the Marvel universe from Doctor Strange to you. Name it, you know, from from Bruce Banner and the Incredible Hulk. Uh, this is going to really make Margo vans happy. I'm telling you You know, I wonder if this is the kind of movie though, that I need to kind of understand the Marvel universe because I I gotta be honest with you. I saw the original Iron Man That was the last Marvel movie that I saw. Oh, my gosh, certainly that you're a universal way, way going on. I figured good. This is what's good about Shanxi. You don't have to its own storyline, its own humor. This is an origin story. So you don't need to know what happened in the Avengers or what happened in the Hulk or Thor or in Of those movies. It's a standalone movie, but it's got little bit and cameos from the Avengers and from the Marvel universe, you know that's for the fans. They drop that stuff in there, but overall, no, you can go in this cold and enjoy this. This really incredible original Marvel Disney Action film and it's funny because I went in the same way. I think you know, because I get confused, and there's a lot better critics out there but understand this whole Marvel University mtu and they understand every little detail and you know something that happened to film four years ago vs today. I don't do that. I just go in and And have a good time. But there are people more qualified for me to get into the nitty gritty of these films. But I went into this one with 10 rings. I just came out smiling. The action is amazing. There's another fight on on a city bus. That's just fantastic. And I don't know how they do it. This is one of the movies that came out of going. Wow. I mean, that just blew me away. So I think people going to love it, and hopefully we'll see it this weekend. They have to have run out of Marvel comics by now, that can't be anymore. Oh, well, there's so many more. Are there there, there, there? Not only that this this movie, I think is wrapping up the whole empty you as we know it for the last 10 12 years, and they're planning a whole new Uh, universe, all new stories and actors and everything from Captain America from just New Avengers. So they're they're gearing up to do a whole new universe with these marvel characters, Then trust me, I think there's Moon Shadow, and there's a lot more that have obscure limited series They had back in the seventies and eighties there dusting often. Same over there, D C comics. They're doing the same thing so Yeah, I just get ready for more superhero films over the next decade. Okay? I never got the whole incredible hulk thing, and I don't see how he fits in. You know, I don't get you know, Once again. I'm not a comic book guy. So you know, I look at and I do yourself a favor and watch the Captain American ones. They are so good Winter soldier. The first one is great. It's all World War two. You know it goes off the fight. Uh, no, the Nazis and it's just so patriotic and then also winter soldier is one of the best ones. Trust me. There's this. There's a handful in there. The Thor movies are fantastic. I know. On the service. You may see yourself. Wait a minute. This looks corny, but they're funny. You know, there's a lot for Ragnarok was great. There's someone in there. I think you would really enjoy. And you don't have to be a fan to watch them all. And then, of course, finishing with Infinity war And I think it really enjoy it. There really are amazing films they are, Isn't there a new spider man coming out? Does that qualify as Marvel? Well, yes, you know, back in the day Marvel sold the rights to movies and TVs. You know they were. There was a patchwork job to all the different studios over the last 30 40 years and that ended up being at Sony Columbia Pictures. Now Disney bought Marvel. They didn't get the rights to that. So they've been pulling out their hair over there at the mouth house and they finally we're gonna bench uh, Spider man, but he appeared while the Avengers films and people went crazy for it, Tom Mullen. And so now he's got a new movie coming out. Yet they preview that at Cinemacon last week and but now Disney's rumors they just want to buy the character outright from Sony. So boy talk about billions of dollars for that, But Disney needs them. Even at Disney's Disneyland. They have the Avengers campus, Spiderman's front and center with all the action and all the shows that are going on there. You know, so Spiderman's an integral part of the Marvel universe, but he doesn't own it. How crazy is that? You know, I gotta be honest with you. It's amazing to me that comic books have become the the phenomenon that they have, and especially in theaters, But I guess as long as the movie as well made, they'll always have a built in audience. But there's also a fatigue. No, There's been a lot of fatigue about the superhero movies because Disney only makes Pixar films Marvel films some of their animation, but they don't go back and make you know like original films anymore. They only make specific types of films. And so there might be a little bit fatigued. We'll see what the 10 rings. We'll see if people head out to the viewers give me a real test. Well, you know, Yeah, real test. But you got to wonder how much coronavirus is going to interfere with people going out to the theaters. But I guess this is going to be a good test for a lot of the big movies that we want to see coming out. For example, the James Bond movie the Ghostbusters movie, I think they have already moved the top gun Maverick movie again. That's two years behind. Now, the top gun got moved to May of 2022 mission. Impossible. Got moved to fall of 2022. Now James Bond. No time to die was supposed to be in April of 2020. Now that's to October eight, but that could change any week. They're talking about that, Even though the new trailer for No time to die dropped this week, everyone's going crazy for it. Ghostbusters. Now come down November 11th that got pushed, like by a week or two. But who knows if we're going to watch the box office for Labor Day, and people aren't going, they can't afford to have another reminiscence on their hands. $100 million movie where only two million came in the weekend, And that's with Hugh Jackman, who's a huge star. So this is going to be an interesting weekend. This is if anyone's going to go and we're going to see set some records. It's going to be this weekend..

Our film critic Justin Chang has this review. The best moments in Shanxi. And the legend of the 10 rings are the ones where you almost almost forget you're watching a marvel movie.

But the movie doesn't get bogged down in Syria's menu. Sha It takes place sometime after the last two Avengers movies. You know when half the world was wiped out and then brought back and several fan favorites said goodbye.

So this character really grows From that origin from that kind of lens of being for like a white audience at a time when they're just trying to go off of this this really craze of kung fu.

"Let's get into shanxi here before we start getting into puzzle pieces and all that. Are you a big marvel guy where you super lucan forwarded this one. I was probably one of the most One of the ones who was most excited about in terms of the phase for lineup. I am not as big of a comic person by. I had been big fan of the marvel cinematic universe and You know it was it was it was fi like having a year to off of the. Mc you last year was really it really got me even more excited for what we weren't as he pays for and sure but shame she just because of the fact that it's it's ultimately a very different type of superhero. That were used to. It's not even though. There are some liberties i think in the origin films in terms of the type the different beatson themes that they touch on. I do think this is a very different type of story than what we have seen in marvel an mc origin stories. I think that's one of the things that really have excite me as well as some of the cast in this too. I mean we have young. Who's a legend. We have a michelle. Yeoh who's also eleven aquafina who's been one of the brighter. Spots in movies and smaller roles is bigger roles like the farewell and show is just very. I was pretty excited for this. And i get a chance to see it last week and It's funny we're recording this on the day that the reviews dropped the embargo was lifted. End so You can read my thoughts about on socks overall. I just really enjoyed

"I mean it's an interesting family story man. It's a really interesting family story. I think. I think and i think that serves the the movie really well because it really gets you invested in the characters when you get to see like the family dynamic and it's really good. Yeah yeah. I can't wait for everybody to see this fucking thing. Sorry sorry i just have a real quick question as far as like. I'm not gonna ask you which one's better because it doesn't really make sense but as far as we watch ability After you see this one a couple more times podcast and entertainment and you could only watch one movie till the end of the year if you can suicide squad picking shanxi. I'm picking suicide squad. Yeah i'm picking suicide squad. Yeah yeah this is. This is this is this is better than black. In my opinion it's better than black widow. The villains definitely better than black widow so yeah the rings the powers that display on screen very cool. Very fucking cool. It's not like the comics. Where each each has its own individual power. But it's really cool. How these rings are used in the movie they don't really go into the elemental of of each ring and the differences in all that there isn't okay and if there is it's not explored in this film. Yeah just under. There was some speculation on on that which way they were gonna go right. Yeah yeah i will say that You know we've seen it in the trailer when we're showing up at the gates of this one castle and and taking on an army really get to see the power on display there some very cool you get to see you get to see what these things can really fucking do in the movie. It's it's really cool to watch. It's really cool to watch and then also another scene. That's in the trailer that is very cool and beautiful is the scene of when will and he's a fighting a woman in the the woods of tallow and it's it's beautifully choreographed. It's very crouching tiger hidden dragon. And it's almost like watching a dance but with kicks and punches it is very very fucking cool but it does get brutal gets brutal if it's very cool. How much time did they spend with shonky as a child and is it contained to the beginning or is it kind of spread out. It's spread out. I would say yeah. You're gonna see quite a few times within the movie. You're you're not only going to see him as a very young boy like preteens. But you're also gonna see him as as a fourteen year old man. There's flashbacks to it. I i couldn't count. But i would say at least four to five times. Sometimes there's more to it than not sometimes. It's just imagery.

"Love this thing. So for shunkichi. I get like i told you when we were kind of I think we played. We played both trailers right. And i think the second time. I said you know every time i see more material for this thing i'm getting more hyped or And here it's interesting that people are saying it's unlike any other marvel movie Because i feel. I feel that way about what i saw internals so already getting to phase for movies that are completely unlike the formula kind of you know the the knock on marvel's they're pretty formulaic. I tend to disagree with that with with certain movies. Like ragnarok and and doctor strange but But that that criticisms out there as restarting off as for with with completely different tones and and formulas and i mean that's what it sounds like to me i i mean obviously eternal is yet to be seen but yes i didn't expect i expected from shanxi to be a basic kind of paint by numbers marvel movie and that's sounds like not what we're getting. No it doesn't sound like that at all and again not. I am not a shanxi fan. I am and i don't mean that in a derogatory sense. I just mean that. I don't know the history. I don't know the character. I never read the comics. I enjoy martial arts movies. I liked and i hung fu. And so i i sort of flippantly disregarded by saying yeah i want i want the mandarin but if this is going to be something. That is sort of jack's things up and i i haven't seen it but it sounds like this sort of surprise that people felt when they saw guardians of the galaxy because there was lowest stations on guardians of the garrity and like. I can't believe that that was good as it was. And so if that's what we're in store for yeah i will avoid. I will avoid all of the spoilers and check it out. Yeah me too. I'm done on yet. But i think I think i'm done watching anymore. Trailers are or tvs by usually. Don't watch the tv spots as much. so.

"I'm not really building up my hopes for this one too much. I'm going to focus more on. You know maybe something. Like shanxi cheer attorneys. Which feel like they might do something. I haven't seen a billion times in a marvel movie. But i will say this i thought black widow i enjoyed black widow and i thought it felt like it was doing things that were quite different from a marvel movie. I talked to my sister on the phone about it after watching it and we both agreed. It didn't really feel like a marvel movie in a lot of ways it had obvious connections characters we've seen before but in terms of what it was trying to do in terms of. I thought the seriousness of the movie. It felt. I don't feel like it may frustrate some people that are going to see a marvel copyright logo movie. I feel like it's doing weird things that fit very well into our spy genre. But i'm not sure that like superhero fans are going to be happy to that. I would disagree. I think there's a lot for mabul fans in here. I one of my grievances with the film. I'll get to my overall source in. The second is the had an opportunity to restrict back on what the marvel films have done. Because if you look at where the characters are lewd to wash. I meant to she just a assassin With some gadgets whereas in this film she's basically flying from the sky in Superhero landing time. It's just become like a the resumption of herself which is fine and it works. But i saw this film was tuned to solve explore. What regimented spoilers turns out. It's just constantly in the sky. That's not a stripped back story. That's a for long complete model storage. You know what i mean. Yeah as i was kinda hoping for that. But i mean my thoughts on this film that it was an enjoyable film. I actually quite enjoy watching. It went by super quick in the is. I think it was a really good appetite for black widow. I just kept. I just left with his nagging sensation that we should have seen this five years ago. Why agree a hundred percent there. This should have come out right after civil war. I don't know why didn't seem like there was all this weird hesitancy about a black widow movie and took forever for it to happen. This should have. This should have come out post that movie. It would have given a little more context for what was going on post civil war because really when we come back to those characters. They're getting back together for the you know. Infinity war endgame two-parter. It's like well. I guess that was Fairly brief So i think that would have been very helpful and it would have done..

Equifax hit with $700 million fine for data breach, but is it enough? (The Daily Charge, 7/22/2019)
"<music> today on the daily charge Equifax hot water marble phase four the anniversary of Apollo Eleven and more drama good morning welcome to see that say we charge Monday July I twenty second I'm offering. Let's take a look at today's headlines. Equifax may pay up to seven hundred million dollars as a result of a massive twenty seventeen data breach exposed the date of more than a hundred forty seven million Americans Alfred. What does this mean essentially? If you were affected by the breach you're eligible for up to twenty thousand dollars and reimbursement from equifax over this now that is much easier said than done right basically have to approved that you were affected by one of these breaches and it's not like when your social security numbers stolen. It's not like that person will contact you the hey by the way I stole this from McAfee right so that is the big question right like they put they've set aside about three hundred million dollars to to pay up to consumers. But how do you even know if you qualify yeah so at a press conference earlier today. The representative from director actually of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau had mentioned that if you were affected by identity theft or anything like that and we're dealing with this breach. You're eligible for this like so if your identity was stolen after this breach had happened with the same data that was taken. You're pretty much eligible for it. You'RE GONNA get some money but you know the full twenty thousand dollars. You really have to prove that. Ah that it affected you that much so it's not only identity theft so you know money that you spend on attorneys that you spend on accounts to deal with this what you did what if you paid for credit monitoring that kind of thing and the hours that you dealt with it to you can go up to twenty twenty five dollars per hour for up to twenty hours you know from from the settlement what happens if you you know you weren't affected right away right like the information wasn't used against you until like a year later two years later yeah so I think think they kept it in and broad terms because of that they specifically said if you were affected after this breach happened so if you were affected by identity theft or anything like that after July twenty seventeen which is when they were hacked and then they announce it in September though but they're going by the one that had happened date okay and then the also has some rules and changes that equifax the fall to what's going on with them yeah so equifax along with paying up we'll whoa now also have to improve it security standards. They're going to have to do a yearly review of their own security standards and then also every two years have to have a third party review to make sure that you know it is doing what they say that they're doing because that's how this breach really happened even in the first place right. They said that they were warned about a vulnerability. In March they told their staff to patch it they didn't and they only learned about it after they realized they had been hacked right this as far as this is totally preventable yes all right next up marvel loaded phase four schedule including confirming black widow eternal Shanxi sequels a doctor strange and thorny blade reboot that that is a huge amount not that doesn't mention the Disney plus shows. Is there anything any product in particular you excited about. No I don't care about any of these. I don't know I guess it's cool that you know there's a lot more diversity and more representation with marvel movies. I just these like none of these superheroes really click with me. I know you can't do another ironman manner Captain America or anything like that but to be fair that was also the set of superheroes that started out this phase you know marvel had really sold the rights all of the heavy hitters and they weren't they do what they had and they built you know what they did with like infinity the war and all that right so it was very cool. Maybe they'll do a good job of all these well interestingly enough though like the heavy hitters they just got from Fox right x-men fantastic four barely got a meant yeah and and we didn't even get any information on a sequel a little Black Panther or go use the galaxy. These are two big franchises that people are interested in they really kind of pushed refocused on these new projects and we don't know as much about because they're definitely like probably because all those big names can generate their own press and they don't need it constitutes plus. There's also a disease that coming up next month so maybe a little tease more information then lastly Saturday Mark The fiftieth anniversary of the poll of moon landing our own Jackson Ryan takes a look at the various missions going on now from China to Israel as wasn't her own goal to get back to the moon by twenty twenty-five it is kind of interesting that like this was huge the captured America's attach imagination for a decade and then just abruptly ended in the seventies. We haven't really gone back yeah. I saw a study actually that looked at. Because it was like a historical perspective on how like two years later like nobody cared about they like some people couldn't even remember Neil Armstrong's names like just two years after it had happened which I am now. We're all crazy about it again. Maybe because it's the fifth year anniversary maybe a year later. We won't care about it again. Who knows I know that the Asian Museum and the folks are kids? Adults older folks. They were just Gaga over. I'm space moon is cool. I mean it's kind of like it's kind of like a nineteen sixty-nine somebody like the U._S.. Just went left.

Destin Daniel Cretton to Direct Asian-American Superhero Movie Based on Shang-Chi Character for Marvel Studios
"News broke on the Hollywood reporter that destined. Daniel Cretin has signed on to direct Marvel's Shanxi movie. Which will Mark the studios very first superhero film with an Asian lead? So word of this project for surface back in September along with the news that marvel was going to fasttrack it, and they also tapped at that point writers penned the screenplay at that time. It was reported that marvel was looking towards Black Panther a little bit of a guide and a model just in terms of hiring Asian or or an Asian American director to helm this one other directors that were in the running included Justin tipping, Alan Yang and Deborah Chow. But of course, Cretin is the one that landed this gig. So from this point on marvel is looking to assemble a largely Asian American and Asian cast for the film. So hopefully, we get a lot more news on this very soon. But right now focusing on the director, Amy rose, what do you think? About destined getting this gig. I think it's a great choice short-term twelve most people didn't really know about Brielle arson before the room, but this was the little gem, and there's kind of something around the internet floating around that like this was like the magic well short term twelve because everyone who was in this movie, this has been a launch pad for a lot of success, and it's just such a talented cast, and he's an amazing director. And like it's about time. I feel like a rook a broken record talking about representation being so important in media. But it really is. And you know, I'm finally pursuing my dream of directing. But I didn't have a lot of role models growing up and that right there because there were probably ten I could count on my fingers female directors. And it's the same thing with having an all Asian cast Asian director with this property who's going to know the property better. So think it's a great choice. He has a lot of talent. And I'm glad that marvel and Holywood is still slow to change. But I'm glad that they are finally showing a little bit more
