Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has finished filming, and its star Simu Liu has shared a powerful message to honor the moment.
As reported by TheWrap, Liu wrote the message on a now seemingly deleted Facebook post, saying that it will be “impossible for Hollywood to ignore us after this.”
“That’s a wrap on SHANG CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS!!!!!!!! Nine months from now we will break records and make history as the first superhero movie to feature an ALL-ASIAN cast that kicks so much ass it’s not even funny. Well – that’s a lie, actually, it’s quite funny too.”
“For all of us who hate hated the colour of our skin, or been made to feel less than because of it; NO MORE. This is OUR movie, and it will be IMPOSSIBLE for Hollywood to ignore us after this. I’ll see you then. But probably sooner actually because i’m always on here lollll. LET’S FUCKING GO.”
Whlie this post appears to have been deleted, Liu did post an image of himself with Shang-Chi director Destin Yori Daniel Cretton to celebrate the moment, saying, “We made a baby!!! We can’t wait to introduce him to the world in 9 months… #WRAPPED”
Cretton also posted an image to honor this milestone, saying, “WE. ARE. WRAPPED!”
Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is scheduled to be released in theaters on July 9, 2021 following a delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
