Marvel is making history with its upcoming comic book film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which will feature the studio’s first-ever Asian superhero.
Shang-Chi, a character created by Jim Starlin and Steve Englehart in the early 1970s in the midst of global martial arts mania, has some odds stacked against him. He’s a character steeped in the stereotypes of the time, and he’s a little-known superhero outside of diehard Marvel Comics fans.
And playing the character is none other than Chinese-Canadian actor Simu Liu, was announced as the star of the highly anticipated Marvel movie at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, is more than worthy of rising up to the task of bringing Shang-Chi into the modern era!
the actor is a rising star in his home country of Canada and a beloved figure in the Asian diaspora community thanks to his role in the hit sitcom Kim’s Convenience.
Liu began acting in 2012 after a short-lived career in finance and accounting
extra work in the series Nikita and Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, Heroes Reborn. He landed his first major role in the Canadian crime drama Blood and Water (and even landed a few TV award nominations for it), but it wasn’t until Liu was cast as a co-lead in the sitcom Kim’s Convenience that he really hit it big.
Liu is effortlessly funny and frequently shirtless!
As the estranged son of the titular Mr. Kim in Kim’s Convenience, Liu gets to be more than the meathead hunk of the sitcom about an immigrant family running a convenience store in the Moss Park neighborhood of Toronto. Liu is effortlessly funny and frequently shirtless, sure….
In Kim’s Convenience, Liu is a charismatic and oh-so-dreamy leading man
His comedy roots will likely aid him immensely as a Marvel superhero, for sure!
