He wrote, "The sun rose today to a world where Asian superheroes exist as the leads of their story; that is the gift that @destindaniel and @marvelstudios have bestowed upon all of us, across all communities, everywhere. A celebration and a sharing of culture, of language, of laughter, of excitement, of sorrow and of heartbreak." Simu Liu added, "I’ve said before that this film will change the world. A smile where there wasn’t one before. Pride where there was a shame. Compassion where there was ignorance. If we reach out and touch even one person, they aren’t all of our lives better for it?."
