Loved #BlackWidow better than #Shangchi not the usual marvel stuff.. #florencepugh was brilliant and the red guardian character was hilarious.. Felt the character writing was better than the recent marvel outings..
Was surprised to see few prominent reviews trashing it..

Shang-Chi is much better than Black Widow but man, these movies would be improved enormously if they cost half as much and weren’t half digital mud surrounding actors shot in an Atlanta parking lot

At the end of August, Walt Disney had claimed that it received $125 million in online revenue from the film. This was weeks after the company got sued by Scarlett Johansson as per a Reuters report.
The actress last month sued Disney alleging that the company breached her contract when it offered the movie on streaming at the same time it played in theatres.
