Why Simu Liu Congratulating Ludi Lin’s Casting in ‘Mortal Kombat’ is So Important for Asians

“Power Rangers” star Ludi Lin is reportedly in talks to star as Liu Kang in the live-action adaptation of “Mortal Kombat,” and it appears Marvel’s “Shang-Chi” actor Simu Liu is completely on board with this idea.

Liu congratulated Lin on Twitter after news of the casting hit online entertainment news sites last week, Huffington Post reported.

Marvel Allegedly Eyeing Donnie Yen, Ludi Lin to Star in Shang-Chi

The search for the titular role for Marvel’s “Shang-Chi” has allegedly begun, and the studio is already looking at its short-list of actors for the part, which includes “Aquaman” star Ludi Lin for the spot.

Lin’s desire to lead the first-ever Asian-centric superhero film and his martial arts training plus his track record of starring in many famous franchises including DC’s “Aquaman,” Netflix’s “Black Mirror,” and the 2017 “Power Rangers” reboot has put him in Marvel’s head honcho Kevin Feige’s radar, according to That Hashtag Show.

Dear Disney, Here’s 8 Extremely Hot Asian Guys Perfect as Mulan’s Love Interest

The live-action “Mulan” movie has been fraught with troubles since its inception.

At first, Disney was entertaining a script that featured Mulan falling in love with some random White merchant. Then we discovered that they would adhere to the original a bit more with Mulan having a Chinese love interest, but that it wouldn’t necessarily be Captain Li Shang. They dropped that bomb at the same time as this ridiculously crazy one — the live-action would be without its memorable songs. Another recent blow? That the release date was pushed to 2019, meaning we have to wait yet another year to watch one of the greatest Disney movies of all time be added to the live-action list.
