After bursting into the mainstream as the titular character of the 2021 Marvel film “Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings,” Liu has had no shortage of work in showbiz. Some of his other upcoming projects include Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” film, where he plays one of three Kens, and a “Shang-Chi” sequel. Most recently, his likeness has popped up in a fourth-wall breaking scene in the season finale of “She-Hulk,” which he jokingly referred to as his “triumphant return to the MCU.”
