Shang-Chi Star Meng'er Zhang Broke Asian Stereotypes During Filming



Originally the character Xialing had a red streak in her hair. After reading a Teen Vogue article about the stereotype of female Asian characters sporting a red or purple streak to show their rebelliousness (and therefore their break from the "normal" meek Asian woman), Mang'er Zhang asked that it be changed.

They were already a month into shooting, but Marvel let them make the change, and they fixed previously shot footage in post.
