4 years ago, @SimuLiu and I went to see an X-Men movie before filming S1 of #kimsconvenience. Afterwards he told me he was going to play a superhero someday. That day is today. Congrats brother! You made this happen and I’m so proud of you! #SDCC0219 #MCUphase4 #ShangChi pic.twitter.com/sjX9J8k9Ns— Andrew Phung (@andrewphung) July 21, 2019
