This may be too early to call but...best MCU villain:
Tumblr media
1) The complexity of this character. Never have I felt so conflicted over a villain since even though you know he’s a bad man, you just feel sorry for him. 
2) The movie did the “romance redeemed the villain” trope, but effectively. 
3) His fall from grace was well-done. You just feel he’s making the wrong choices, such as putting the ten rings back on again, breaking his promise to leave the warlord life. At the same time, you completely understand why he’s making these choices. 
4) Everything about this character was so human. Tony Leung really brought in a certain sadness with Wenwu, that you could feel his anguish and grief even as he commits acts of violence. Since Tony’s made a career out of playing complicated men dealing with loneliness, this comes as no surprise. 
5) The final showdown between Wenwu and Shang-Chi was enough to put this movie in my top 5. The way that Simu Liu and Tony Leung kept switching from rage to despair, from wanting to kill each other to hoping the other will stand down because there’s still love there...that’s what really made this movie work. They really nailed the dynamic of a father and son reluctantly battling each other, both wanting to win but not wanting to seriously hurt the other.
I’m sorry Killmonger...you’re still amazing, but I gotta give the Best MCU Villain crown to Wenwu/The Mandarin.

when Wenwu first fights Ying Li to enter Ta Lo and she spins him around and he looks up at her and sees her smile and effortless skill and realizes she has the upper hand and that’s the exact moment he falls in love with her
to when Shang-Chi fights his father using his mother’s training and spins him around the exact same way and Wenwu looks up and realizes the spirit of his beloved wife has always lived on through his children and its like he’s falling in love with her all over again bc he realizes he should’ve continued to love her by being there for his children and loving them.

LISTEN every ship in shang chi is top tier and valid
shang chi x katy? they're idiot best friends to lovers your honor
katy x xialing? Clueless bi and badass lesbian nation rise
xu wenwu x ying li? who on earth doesn't love the trope of man who immediately falls in love with a woman who kicks his ass, and star crossed lovers?? mob boss gives up life of crime for the woman he loves?? avenging your lost love and losing yourself in it?? tony leung gazing at you like that?? simply elite
xialing x jon jon? distinguished bi dating a clown of a pan, also accomplished boss woman dating her goofy right hand man slaps
ship and let ship AND GO WATCH SHANG CHI

no, but the fact that wenwu left his kids alone after they ran away from home, and only came to get them once he started having those hallucinations — he really thought if he saved ying li, she could fix their broken family and make them whole again. like, he had a fundamental awareness that it was his shitty parenting that drove the kids away and that he didn't know how to fix them, even though he missed them 😭😭😭😭
