‘Shang-Chi’ star Simu Liu credits film’s diverse production crew for its authenticity

The latest Marvel Studio movie – “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” has broken the Labour Day box office record, making $90 million over the four-day holiday in the US. Shang-Chi is the first MCU movie featuring an Asian superhero (played by Simu Liu) and starred primarily by Asian casts ex. Awkwafina, Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, Michelle Yeoh and Sir Ben Kingsley. This movie shows a representation of marginalized communities before and behind the camera. Research done by the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative shows that most characters played by the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) have been in the stereotypical categories of “silenced, stereotyped, tokenized, isolated, and sidekicks/villains.” As we grow up being unconsciously influenced by TV and movies with such unbalanced portrayals, we may slowly and gradually form unconscious bias which affects our perception, thinking and decision making.
