'Shang-Chi' Simu Liu on Origins of Playing Marvel Studios' First Asian Superhero

"Kim's Convenience" actor Simu Liu talked to Cheddar about updating the source material for Marvel Studios' first Asian headliner in its cinematic universe, the privilege he felt taking on the titular "Shang-Chi," and the shock of garnering the role. The newly-minted hero (who took time to show off the action figure featuring his likeness) also discussed his real-life effort to help people, particularly kids, by partnering with the California Milk Processor Board on #StayStrongTogether, a campaign to make sure hungry children get their nutritional needs met.
