Shang-Chi star Simu Liu recalled a hilarious story with him and Eternals star Angelina Jolie at San Diego Comic-Con.
On July 20, 2019, Marvel Studios held their Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con announcing their slate for Phase 4. On that day, numerous casting announcements were made, one of which included the actor who signed on to play the titular role in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: Simu Liu.
Simu Liu, whom before joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the first Asian lead superhero was most recognized for his role in the Canadian sitcom Kim’s Convenience celebrated the second anniversary of his casting announcement by sharing a hilarious story from that day involving Eternals star Angelina Jolie. As it turns out, it involves League of Legends.
In humorous fashion, Simu Liu recalled the moment he shared with Angelina Jolie on his official Twitter account:
On this day two years ago at Comic-Con I sat across the table from Angelina Jolie and attempted to explain League of Legends to her.
Oh and some other stuff happened too I guess
