Simu Liu Was Offended No One Thought He'd Be In Spider-Man: No Way Home

Shang-Chi star Simu Liu was offended nobody thought he'd be in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home. Liu rose to global prominence after starring in this year's MCU Phase 4 hit Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, although he previously appeared in TV shows including Kim's Convenience and Blood and Water. The financial success of Shang-Chi has already led Marvel to reportedly start work on a sequel movie.

Though Phase 4 kicked off with Shang-Chi, Marvel's most hotly-anticipated release of the year is undoubtedly Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third and final film in the Homecoming trilogy starring Tom Holland. The film, which has been generating hype among fans for several months now with record-breaking trailers, posters, and teasers, promises to bring several Spider-Man universes together, with trailers confirming past villains like Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, Electro, and Lizard will all be converging in the current MCU Spider-Man timeline for a showdown of epic proportions. Although not confirmed, rumors have been swirling for months that, along with these previous villains, both former Spider-Men Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will also appear in the film, despite Garfield's repeated denials.

In a new Tweet, Liu jokingly said that he's "offended" that no one thought he would also be appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home since he too has previously appeared as Spider-Man. The Shang-Chi actor didn't play Spider-Man in a film, but used to dress up as the character for children's birthday parties in and around his home city of Toronto for work.

Birthday party Spider-Man wasn't the only job Liu had to make ends meet before his acting career took off. Liu was famously paid $100 to appear in a number of stock photos that can still be found on various textbooks, advertisements, and websites. Liu definitely has a sense of humor about these past experiences, though, and frequently tweets about them to his hundreds of thousands of followers. He followed up his original Spider-Man tweet with a funny reply, saying, "There's definitely a pocket universe somewhere, that's all I'm saying."

No Way Home is truly the first superhero movie of its kind, bringing together an array of characters across multiple iterations of Spider-Man spanning the course of nearly twenty years. It remains to be seen whether Maguire and Garfield will actually appear in the film, but hype is at a level now that, if they don't, many fans will likely be very disappointed. Although Liu's birthday party Spider-Man likely won't feature in the upcoming film, the recent announcement that more Spider-Man movies are in the works with Holland means there's now a chance that Spider-Man and Shang-Chi will eventually cross paths somewhere down the line, if Spider-Man: No Way Home doesn't provide the opportunity.
