Kumail Nanjiani & ‘Shang-Chi’ Star Simu Liu Joke About A Potential MCU Crossover

After Kumail Nanjiani’s fit pic was shared, Shang-Chi actor Simu Liu and The Eternals star joked about a potential MCU crossover.

This morning, Kumail Nanjiani set the internet on fire with a post on Instagram showing off his body for The Eternals. Marvel is known for transforming an actor’s physique, and Kumail Nanjiani is the latest actor to do it. Many were impressed by Kumail Nanjiani’s picture, including Shang-Chi actor Simu Liu.

Simu Liu and Kumail Nanjiani are two newcomers to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, who will both debut in Phase Four. Shang-Chi himself, Simu Liu took to Twitter and joked about a “Harold and Kumar go to Planet Fitness” movie with himself and Kumail Nanjiani. The Eternals star later responded saying that he is already thinking about a MCU crossover. You can check out the hilarious Twitter exchange between Simu Liu and Kumail Nanjiani below.

Plot details for The Eternals remain under wraps, however, the story reportedly features a love story between Sersi and the Black Knight. Created by Jack Kirby in 1976, the Eternals are a fictional evolutionary offshoot of humanity created by the Celestials over a million years ago. The beings who possess superpowers and longer lifespans were the result of genetic experiments that led to the creation of fellow divergent races such as the Deviants (hideous monsters of human origin who are ancestors to the Atlanteans), and Latents (the predecessors to the Mutants and Mutates that make up many of Marvel’s superheroes).

The cast of The Eternals includes Gemma Chan as Sersi, Kit Harington as the Black Knight, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Angelina Jolie as Thena, and Barry Keoghan as Druig. Reportedly, there are some key roles that have yet to be revealed to the public, leaving room for Dan Stevens to possibly have a part. Marvel Studios has tapped Chloe Zhao to direct the project from a script written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo.

The Eternals is set to be released on November 6, 2020.
Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be released in theaters on February 12, 2021.
