Discussing Asian representation in Hollywood, Liu explains that Shang-Chi is great, “but I don’t think that’s anywhere near where we should be in terms of on-screen representation or anything like that.” However, he hopes to use his new platform to change that fact. 

Hoping to create new spaces for Asian voices, Li notes, “I don’t mind taking on a producer or creative role in general.” He elaborates, “If there ever comes an opportunity where I have to write it myself, it’ll be a challenge but one I’m more than happy to undertake.”
