You know, they’re coming, right? You’ve got a movie called Multiverse of Madness. You’ve got mutants announced at Comic-Con a year and a half ago. Like, they’re coming. And guess who else is coming? The Mandarin is coming. He is also announced; he’s the villain of Shang-Chi. So your patience will be rewarded.”
