A total of four Marvel movies were released in the second half of this year, “Black Widow” “Shang-Chi”, “Venom 2” and “Eternals”.
These films cannot be shown in China for some reasons.
“Black Widow” is suspected of discrediting the Soviet Union, and “Shang-Chi” involves insulting China.
The male lead in “Venom 2” has involved improper remarks. The movie itself is also homosexual, so it is naturally impossible to be released in mainland China.
“Eternals” is the most excessive. Its director, Zhao Ting, rejected the consensus and agreed to the screenwriter to add the scene of “Silence for the Atomic Bombing” in the play.
Such disrespect for history, it is reasonable to be passed.
Marvel will release five movies in total this year, and the one that netizens most anticipate is undoubtedly “Spider-Man: No Way Home”.
This movie can be described as a carnival for Spider-Man lovers. In the film, not only the Tom Holland version of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange appeared, but also the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield versions of Spider-Man appeared.
This is the first time that three generations of Spider-Man have the same frame.
The surprise is more than that, the villains of the three generations of Spider-Man will all appear in “Spider-Man: No Way Home”.
You can see Dr. Octopus, Green Goblin, Electro, Sandman, The Lizard, etc. in the trailer.
Almost all villains in the three generations of Spider-Man will appear.
Do you think this is over?
Of course not. In the just-released “Venom 2”, the venom played by Tom Hardy travels to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is the universe where Tom Holland is located.
This also means that Venom has officially joined the Avengers.
With so many characters, just thinking about it makes the audience excited.
Unlike other superheroes in Marvel, Spider-Man is a student who is still in college.
Compared to other superhero movies, he is more sound and suitable for all ages.
It stands to reason that it is not difficult for such a film to pass a trial in China.
However, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” has been released in North America, and it will officially meet with the audience in December this year.
Mainland China has not yet set a release date for “Spider-Man: No Way Home”.
There is a saying on the Internet that “Spider-Man: No Way Home” will be released simultaneously with Japan in January next year.
It is also said that this movie has no connection with the mainland Chinese market, and it is impossible for it to be shown in mainland Chinese theaters.
As for the reason, it is probably related to the opening picture of the movie.
Some netizens discovered that “Shang-Chi” appeared in the beginning of the movie “Spider-Man: No Way Home”.
“Shang-Chi” is a very controversial movie, part of which involves insulting China.
Its controversy has not stopped so far.
If the title of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is not revised, I am afraid that it will be missed in the Chinese mainland market.
Marvel suffered such a severe setback in the Chinese market this year, but it still hasn’t learned a lesson.
Now that China is one of the largest movie markets in the world, if Marvel wants to grab a share of the big screen, it must show enough sincerity.
First learn to respect each other. Only when Marvel respects the mainland Chinese film market, will audiences buy it.
