As a film perfectly integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe about the origin of one of its new superheroes, Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings (Destin Daniel Cretton, 2021) has a few cameos of its characters, some of greater relevance but all just as charming.
During the scenes that introduce us to the clandestine fight club Jon Jon (Ronnie Chieng) in Macau, we can recognize Helen (Jade Xu), one of the skilled young women that Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) and company liberate from the Red Room and the control of the creepy Dreykov (Ray Winstone) in Black Widow (Cate Shortland, 2021); Emil Blonsky as Abomination (Tim Roth), villain in The Incredible Hulk (Louis Leterrier, 2008); and to Wong (Benedict idem), right hand of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).
Later, in Xu Wenwu’s lair (Tony Leung), we meet none other than Trevor Slattery (Ben Kingsley), the actor who cheats on us all in Iron Man 3 (Shane Black, 2013); a wonderful spectator treat with the Oscar-winning English artist. AND, in the post-credit scene, Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) participate.
The hilarious commentator on ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’
But we had missed a very funny cameo from Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings that happens before, in the spectacular bus sequence. Inside the vehicle there are a vlogger called Klev who decides to broadcast the confrontation between Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) and the men of his father, the true Mandarin, through his mobile phone and evaluate the movements of the opponents during the long fight, very hard against Razor Fist (Florian Munteanu).
Date of high on Disney Plus now and save thanks to the annual subscription, with which you can enjoy its entire catalog of series and movies, access to the latest releases, to the catalog of Star and the best National Geographic documentaries.
And it is not the first time that we see this secondary character in a long marvelita the one who embodies the American Zach cherry, a performer who started out on the PITtv program (Ali Reza, since 2007) and later became the administrator of the episode “Kimmy Gives Up!” (2×05) by Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, 2015-2019), Frankie Gallo in the chapter “The Bad News Bear” (4×03) by The Magicians (Sera Gamble and John McNamara, 2015-2020), the Ethan of You or Brian in the episode “Safe Room” (2×04) of Succession (Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti, Jesse Armstrong, since 2018).
Across the country: New York to San Francisco
As Thomas Bacon comments on ., Klev’s video “earned Shang-Chi instant international fame as the social media sensation ‘Bus Boy’”; and has a surprisingly important role in Shang-chi and the legend of the Ten Rings, because he draws enough attention to make Shang-Chi a potential fighter in the Golden Daggers club when he arrives in Macau, so it was actually a crucial plot point, as well as a little funny comedy ”.
But the fact is that the vlogger already it appears in Spider-Man: Homecoming (Jon Watts, 2017): We are talking about the hot dog vendor who asks Peter Parker (Tom Holland) to do stunts on top of a building in New York when he discovers him there.
Perhaps, due to life circumstances, Klev decided to move to the West Coast, to San Francisco, and now he is doing great with his recordings on social networks. Or maybe you are just in the Californian city for a simple vacation trip or for any similar reason. Of what there is no doubt is that it is another little gift from Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings for loyal viewers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
