Simu Liu, who was cast to play Marvel’s first Asian superhero “Shang-Chi,” sort of “predicted” that the role will be his in a tweet back in December.
On Saturday, the “Kim’s Convenience” star might have just struck luck once again, this time through the good old fortune cookie.

Liu shared a photo of the cookie, which also came with a quote that read, “Be careful what you wish for — you just might get it.”
“Shut. The. Front. Door,” the 30-year-old actor wrote in a tweet, which has since gone viral among fans.

Liu, who opened a screening for Awkwafina’s “The Farewell” in Toronto last week, appeared to dine at a place called Wing’s, though it’s unclear where the establishment is located.
According to his cookie, his “lucky” numbers are 8, 9, 12, 15, 37 and 46.

The uncanny coincidence has fans banking on more luck heading Liu’s way — possibly the lottery if he takes his chances.
“You, sir, are on a roll!” one commented.
