Deadline is exclusively reporting that Dallas Liu is the latest name to join the cast of Marvel Studios upcoming film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Shang-Chi first debuted in Marvel Comics back in 1973, where the character is the son of a China-based globalist who raised and educated his progeny in his reclusive China compound, closed off from the outside world. The son trained in martial arts and developed unsurpassed skills. Eventually introduced to the outside world to do his father’s bidding, he also has to come to grips with the fact his revered father might not be the humanitarian he has claimed to be and is closer to what others call him…The Devil’s Doctor. The character was brought to life by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin.
The report states that Dallas Liu’s role is being kept under wraps. His credits include Pen15 and Players.
The film is being directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, with the script written by David Callaham. Dallas Liu will join a cast that includes Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Tony Leung, Ronny Chieng, Michelle Yeoh, Fala Chen, Meng’er Zhang and Florian Munteanu.
