Simu Liu shares a funny reaction to the lack of Shang-Chi in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
As arguably the most important new primary hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date introduced during Phase 4, Shang-Chi certainly has a great future ahead of him in the franchise. Given Simu Liu’s established love of Marvel Comics, all the way through playing Spider-Man at kids’ birthday parties before breaking out with this big role, he’s building up as one of the MCU’s more prominent representatives.
With the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home In less than two weeks, fan theories are rampant, whether it’s about the possible (and let’s be real, probable) return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield or how the story of Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness factors in all of this, there are fewer movies with as much fan speculation as this one in recent memory. With that in mind, Simu Liu is “a little offended” that people haven’t speculated that Shang-Chi will appear in the upcoming movie.
On his official Twitter, Simu Liu expressed his “disappointment” at fans not speculating about a Shang-Chi performance in Spider-Man: No Way Home:
Simu Liu is definitely a huge Spider-Man fan, and while he probably won’t appear in no way home, maybe he’ll star in a future movie with Tom Holland – whether that’s in a new standalone movie for the MCU webhead, or in a team-up avengers story. Anyway, it would be nice to see the two actors meet and interact in the future, while bonding with their deceased father figures.
Here is the summary for Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings:
Simu Liu plays Shang-Chi in Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Shang-Chi must face the past he thought he had left behind when he is drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization.
Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton from a script written by David Callaham, the upcoming Marvel movie stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Meng’er Zhang, Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu, Benedict Wong, Michelle Yeoh, Ben Kingsley and Tony Leung.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is now available to own on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray DVD, Digital HD, and to stream on Disney Plus.
