Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings hit the big screens on 3 September 2021, after much anticipation around its release. The Marvel Cinematic Universe film became the first one to star an Asian superhero. The film also saw Awkwafina, Meng'er Zhang, Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu and many others on screen alongside Simu Liu. The actor took to Instagram after the film’s release and mentioned that history was made. 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.”
The film was helmed by Destin Daniel, and Simu Liu had some wonderful words to say about him. He wrote, “Thank you for making this all happen, Destin. For your thoughtfulness, for the dedication and commitment, you showed each and every day, for the personal sacrifices you made, and for giving me the opportunity to be a vessel for your story. I will never be able to repay what I have learned from my time with you."
