Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige went on the defensive Monday as he fielded questions about criticism over Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, plus the bombshell suit filed by Black Widow‘s Scarlett Johansson.
The stars of Shang-Chi were gathered in Hollywood to celebrate the film’s release, just 48 hours after the lead Simu Liu appeared to target Disney CEO Bob Chapek, who had dubbed the release strategy an “experiment.”
Feige said of Liu: “He is not a shy man. I think in that particular tweet you can see and I think everyone does, a misunderstanding. It was not the intention. The proof is in the movie and we swing for the fences as we always do. With the amount of creative energy we put in and the budget, there’s no expense spared to bring this origin story to the screen.”
