Known for the Hulu comedy Pain 15 and Fox Crime Comedy-drama Bones, actor Dallas Liu joins the cast of Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings. According to Deadline, details about Liu’s role in the film are being kept in wraps.
The studio declined to comment.
Marvel’s first project in the film is with an Asian lead, with Chinese-Canadian actor Simu Liu as a martial arts superhero in the title role. Directed by Destin Daniel Cretan, Shang Chi also stars Tony Leung, Akkwafina, Michelle Yeoh and Ron Chineng.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is producing the film. Louis D’posito, Victoria Alonso and Jonathan Schwartz are associated as executive producers.
Shang Chi was one of those tentpole films whose production came to a halt last March in the wake of the COVID-19 epidemic. The shooting resumed five months later and wrapped up until the end of October.
The film is expected to be released on 3 September.
