Concept Artist Comments on the Appearance of [SPOILER] and Shang-Chi

Warning: SPOILERS for Shang-Chi below!

After so much anticipation, Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings debuted in theaters and brought a breath of fresh air into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film introduced Dweller-in-Darkness, one of the Fear Lords from the comics, which now has a completely different look. Many fans were surprised by it. And so artist Jerad Marantz shared a few details about the creative process behind its renewed appearance on his social network.

“My biggest blow [sic] with my work on wonder is that I tend to lean too scary, ”he wrote. “I often get that note and have to call things back a bit. Surprisingly, this time not so much. I still can not believe this guy came on screen. He was actually pretty scary. My favorite elements in the design are the many stories[sic]/ tendrils coming out of the back and wings. I knew the creature would be too big to have any real interaction with the human characters if he did not have something that he could actually use to fight them. I looked at a lot of Chinese dragons for inspiration there and tried to attach a cultural element to the design. ”
