Dallas Liu, who is famous for starring in the comedy Pen15 and the Fox crime comedy-drama Bones, has joined the cast of Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The details about Liu's role in the film are being kept under wraps.
This marks Marvel's first project with an Asian lead. Starring Chinese-Canadian actor Simu Liu as the titular martial arts superhero, the film is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton. Shang Chi also stars Tony Leung, Awkwafina, Michelle Yeoh and Ronnie Chieng.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is producing the film. Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Jonathan Schwartz are attached as executive producers.
Shang Chi was one of the films whose production was paused last March in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The shooting was resumed five months later and was wrapped by the end of October. The film is slated for release on September 3.
