In addition to Eternals, Marvel Studios announced Chinese-Canadian actor Simu Liu will be starring as the titular character in Shang-Li.
Shang-Li will be released Feb. 12, 2021 directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and written by Dave Callaham also starring Tony Leung and Awkwafina.
“I grew up on an island in the middle of the Pacific called Maui in a small town called Haiku that had about the population of this room, so standing on this stage is really terrifying for me,” Daniel Cretton said. “But what’s really cool is I grew up with friends who were Japanese, Chinese, Caucasian, Filipino, Portuguese, Korean, that’s the norm in Hawaii. And it’s so exciting to see Kevin and his amazing team begin to create an MCU that begins to reflect all the beautiful colors I see in this room.”
