Since Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings Released in theaters earlier this month, the director of the film shared a lot of cool content behind the scenes of the film’s set. Destiny Daniel Cretton took to Instagram to pay tribute to many of the film’s cast and crew, but his latest post is a fun preview of Abomination’s (Tim Roth) return from The Incredible Hulk. Shang-Chi features a large cast of MCU newcomers, but fans were especially excited to see the showdown between the returning characters, Abomination and Wong (Benedict Wong). Fans knew the duo would appear in the film once the trailers feature their fight, and Cretton’s video hilariously features someone wearing Abomination’s giant foot.
“I can’t believe this is my job,” Cretton wrote. You can check out the post below:
Cretton recently spoke with Hollywood journalist and shared that he and his team had considered using other characters for the big fight at the Golden Daggers Club before landing on Abomination against Wong.
“The way we come to ideas is so hard to trace how far they started,” Cretton explained. “Abomination was just the result of twenty to thirty hypotheses. And then we landed on a couple who felt really good, but it was also a couple who made sense with what was going on in the MCU at the era of our movie, so there are specific connections that you’ll find if you’re involved in everything that’s going on in the mcu. ”
Producer Jonathan Schwartz previously shared his take on why Abomination was the right fit for Shang-Chi by speaking with ComicBook.com
“We’re loving this moment. We kind of knew, Destiny and I, that there had to be a big staging fight between two famous characters, and it became that big talk with us talking about who had to. meaning, and who would be cool, and who you’d think would be a good fight between them, “said Schwartz. “And we ended up wanting Abomination because it seemed to make the most sense for the story of where we’re going to find him in this universe, and also, just being a cool, awesome fight. And he fell into it. that sense, like that was a good time to refresh Abomination’s look. We haven’t seen him in a while, so I think everyone was excited to see him in weird glory. “
Schwartz also teased that we hadn’t seen the last of Abomination. Everything will be revealed, “Schwartz said.” Everything will be revealed. “
