Okay finally found it. Yes, this is a full movie in China. Yes Iron Man does make an appearance. At the 46:48 mark. And no, it's a Chinese guy in the suit because they couldn't get Robert Downey Jr. to have a convincing Chinese accent.

But where's Sun Wukong. They need a Thor/obligatory journey to the west thing
>>
>>77655920
Would have preferred if they got chow yun fat, ziyang ziyi, michelle yaoh, jet li and jackie chan.

Known actors, not a gaggle of no names that disney bought for nickles.

I would have killed to see Mandarin becoming a Avengers level threat and to see Chinese heroes standing up to stop him.
>>
Why are Tony Stalk's regs so stinny?
>>
>>77656313
NO
That is too fucking awesome!
Besides, disney fagged out on making thor an actual god, think the old red blooded amuricans and religious types will sit well with the first actual confirmed gods in marvel being asian in origin?

Is this an actual Marvel production or some bootleg shit?

Well it's certainly better than Chin Chong SMASH.

Wish there was a classic Chinese swordsman though. Love the aesthetic. Like, I dunno, Condor Hero? Would that step on Louis Cha's copyright? Or Lu Xiao Feng. Or something, come ON Marvel, you used to be really great at stealing ideas from real life as inspiration for your comics, so where's my goddamn Master Pugilist Swordsman?
>>
I like the look of the priest guy.

>>77656313

Wukong is already in the Marvel universe if I recall correctly, and the Goku from DBZ is based on the mythical figure Buddhist legend which the Indians will claim is theirs but the Chinese have already written classic literature about.
>>
>>77656619
>which the Indians will claim is theirs
No they wouldn't it's always been an exclusively chinese story. why would the indians have a story about a chinese monk bringing a religious scripture to a foreign land? Unless you mean they'd try to claim sun wukong as a knockoff of hanuman, which he basically is but no one has given a shit in something like 700 years?

Didn't see this movie mentioned in there, though. Are these original characters? Is this even an official Marvel production?

I still can't believe she's so recent. She sounds like a misguided attempt at diversity from the '40s.
>>
>>77657235
No, it's a Chinese film about amateur vampire hunters, with the quality of The Room, and taking advantage of China's lax copyright laws to shoehorn Iron Man to take advantage of his popularity in China
The film is linked in
>>77656180

>>77657190
Not when there's big, fat Chinese paychecks waiting for them.

Honestly the middle 3 would make the best team if Marvel ever makes this canon.

Maybe? Even if they could, they probably only know about FEAR through FEAR Online. MMOs are very popular over there, so much that they even have MMO knockoffs of other PC Titles that other countries never see, like Borderlands online.

Before you cry 'ripoff' this actually has 2k's blessing. The current mindset for gaming companies is rather than try and sell their title to China, sell the assets for Chinese developers to make an MMO or whatever game they want.
>>
>>77659159
Taoist Mountain something.

Google tells me it's Demon Legions but I'm not sure that's the official English Title.
>>
>>77658924
I liked what they did with the look and feel of the Mandarin.

I didn't like the BIG PLOT TWIST.

Marvel has its own canon Chinese superhero team.

>>77660384
Imagine a final fight scene like we had, but a magically powered mandarin duking it out shirtless instead of bitter fire faggot.

They don't even have Netflix. If there was ever a Kung-Fu fighter that they'll use it would be Shang-Chi who is canonically Chinese and the best martial art in the world.

I'm Chinese, and I think this series was amazingly well done. They actually 'got' how our government functions. Like, everyone in the series was even more dysfunctional than usual, and it was great! It was exactly the kind of factional politics I would expect.

Immortal Man In Darkness is probably the best example. And yes, Qin Shihuang really was a fucking asshole. (I particularly liked how 'Shaolin Robot' was dressed up to be far less dangerous than he actually was.)

>>77662776

Frankly, I've never heard of it. There are a shitload of films like this being churned out every year: the actors mostly do it on contract. They're really nonsensical, in every sense of the word. Sort of like your direct-to-dvd films.

Chinese anon, I'm wondering if you could answer my curiosity.

My father used to subscribe to this grocery/import store in Chinatown for Chinese comics and to accumulate them until he picks it up every six months.

These comics were full colored booklets and had tons of macho men duking it out. I used to read them but I didn't read chinese just looked at the pictures. One of the characters was sky. How hard is it to track down and are these comics still popular?

On a unrelated topic, how popular is Old Master Q? Like Garfield popular?

>>77663206

No. That seems to be a hallmark in low budget Chinese films. They hire some no name Western actor and that Western actors hams it up to see how much he can get away with.

>>77663020
Back then they could afford to ignore it, the film industry was still going strong. Nowadays they struggle with so many flops, they go for the nation that can turn a flop into an overnight success with billions that will buy the film simply because it's from America.

It looks like they are trying to make a CW show on a China budget. AND IT SHOWS!

I skipped around and got to the scene with the creepy girl in the hotel. I was thinking, "Man, that's a small room to have a fight scene in. But maybe they'll get creative with it." I had to pause it to go work on something, and while I was doing that, I imagined that when I got back I'd be treated to something kickass with all the fighter bouncing off the walls and dodging and trying to throw blows while avoiding each other.

But nope, they just grab her and open a window.
