Simu Liu has tongue-in-cheek reaction to Shang-Chi’s surprise ‘cameo’ in ‘She-Hulk’ season finale

  • Simu Liu has taken to Twitter to announce his “triumphant return” to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in the “She-Hulk” season finale — sort of.

  • During one of her fourth- wall breaks, Jennifer Walters pops out of her show’s thumbnail on the Disney Plus home screen, where Liu as his Marvel character Shang-Chi can be spotted both on the featured panel and the thumbnail for his own film.

  • In a tongue-in-cheek Twitter post, Liu shared a screenshot of his brief meta-cameo, ushering his fans to “behold [his] triumphant return to the MCU.”

  • While a sequel to the 2021 blockbuster “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” is currently in development, there is little information about how he will factor into the future of the MCU.

Simu Liu has taken to Twitter to announce his “triumphant return” to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the “She-Hulk” season finale — sort of.

While his character Shang-Chi does not actually play a role in the plot of the latest MCU series, Liu’s likeness appears during one of Jennifer Walters’ many fourth-wall breaks. When she briefly pops out of her show’s thumbnail on the Disney Plus home screen, Liu as Shang-Chi can be spotted on both the featured panel and the thumbnail for his own film.

In a tongue-in-cheek Twitter post, Liu shared a screenshot of his brief meta-cameo, ushering his fans to “behold [his] triumphant return to the MCU.”

Liu starred as Shang-Chi in the 2021 blockbuster “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.” While there is currently a sequel in development, little information has been shared regarding how he will factor into the future of the MCU. 

A possible clue lies in “Shang-Chi” director Destin Daniel Cretton, who is also set to direct the 2025 ensemble film “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.” While there is no direct confirmation that Shang-Chi will appear in the film, there is a solid possibility that Cretton could incorporate the titular character of his MCU debut in the same way that the Russo Brothers have with Captain America in “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
