Simu Liu doesn’t think Shang Chi should be in a romantic relationship with his best friend Katy, as he reflected on the two character’s relationship in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

Simu Liu doesn’t think Shang-Chi should fall in love with Katy

Speaking to Jessica Henwick, star of Matrix Resurrections on Character Media; Simu Liu opened up on his character Shang-Chi’s relationship with Awkwafina‘s Katy in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Henwick asked Liu if Shang-Chi would ever consider marrying Katy, to which Liu said that the two share a genuine friendship and that such a platonic friendship on the movie screens is hardly seen these days, reiterating his point that the two shouldn’t get romantically involved in the MCU.

Ooh that’s a great question. Shaun and Katy work so well as best friends, personally.

And I think it’s refreshing when you see a man and a woman on screen that don’t necessarily have to fall in love.

I’m not saying they never will, but it’s certainly not hinted at.

I think in the movie, what they have is just truly wonderful, I think it represents a lot of the male-female friendships that I have in life.

I think we’ll see where the story goes, but if you were to ask me now…

Do I think Shaun and Katy should be romantically involved? I would say no.

First Asian-led superhero movie

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has done really well as the first superhero movie with Asians in the leading roles and did its best to steer away from racial stereotypes as well as the cliche narrative of superheroes needing a love interest. However, nothing is set in stone yet with the announcement of a sequel for the movie and anything can happen in Shang-Chi 2.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings saw Simu Liu’s character of the titular hero reconciliation with his long-estranged sister and best friend Katy on a journey to prevent his father, who is the leader of the Ten Rings organization from unleashing the Dweller in Darkness from wreaking havoc.
