Kim’s Convenience star Simu Liu has been cast as Marvel’s Shang-Chi, which is their first major Asian superhero.
And their first Asian hero to lead a film!
It was one of the biggest announcements of the weekend.
It looks like Marvel is definitely fixing their mostly all-white cast problem.
“It really feels like someone waved a magic wand and your life is changed forever,” said Liu to The Star.
Talk about a tweet that aged well (that happens oh so rarely).
We will definitely have a while to wait, but we can fantasize about how amazing it will be!
