Marvel’s Shang-Chi actor Simu Liu has shared a hilarious reaction to an image of Kang actor Jonathan Majors’ impressive physique on the set of Creed III.
Simu Liu joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Shang-Chi in last year’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which ended with a tease that he would soon be joining forces with the Avengers. However, Liu doesn’t fancy Earth’s mightiest heroes’ odds against Jonathan Majors’ Kang.
Reacting to an image of Majors from the set of Creed III online, Simu Liu shared his fear for his Marvel co-stars when they face off with Kang the Conqueror in the upcoming Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
Shang-Chi Is In No Rush To Fight Kang
Taking to Twitter, Simu Liu shared an image of a shirtless Jonathan Majors looking buff and furious, captioning it “bro the Avengers are straight up effed.”
Check out Simu Liu’s tweet and Jonathan Majors’ incredible Creed III body below:
While Jonathan Majors made his MCU debut in Loki, where he played the Kang Variant known as He Who Remains, he will appear as Kang the Conqueror himself for the first time in next year’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. He will go on to face the Avengers in 2025’s Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
With Thanos defeated and the MCU entering The Multiverse Saga, Kang looks set to be a major player across Marvel’s upcoming slate of film and streaming projects. The time-traveling villain appears in multiple guises across the Multiverse in the comics and Kevin Feige confirmed multiple Kang Variants will be cropping up in the MCU.
Meanwhile, it is not yet known when Simu Liu may next be seen as Shang-Chi in the MCU. However, following Marvel Studios’ recent appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, the actor did hint a few Shang-Chi crossover appearances are on the way.
Here is the synopsis for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings:
“Simu Liu stars as Shang-Chi in Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Shang-Chi must confront the past he thought he left behind when he is drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization.”
Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton from a script written by David Callaham, the MCU film stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Meng’er Zhang, Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu, Benedict Wong, Michelle Yeoh, Ben Kingsley, and Tony Leung.
