The Chinese-Canadian actor best known for his role in the now-defunct hit show Kim's Convenience (it hurts, I know) suited up for some gravity-defying stunts for his lead role as Shang-Chi, Marvel's first Chinese superhero.
When it comes to the Marvel Universe, most people are familiar with Spider-Man, but the hero Shang-Chi, a kung fu expert with some incredible wushu and nunchaku skills, has been around for almost as long.
Co-starring Tony Leung, Michelle Yoeh and Awkwafina, the movie follows Shang-Chi on his journey against his evil father The Mandarin. The movie is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton.
Liu's role was announced in 2019 during Comic-Con. The actor, who was born in China, moved to Mississauga at an early age, and, aside from Kim's Convenience, has starred in productions like Fresh Off the Boat and Orphan Black.
