The Shang-Chi star has revealed that he’d love to appear in another Marvel film alongside Anthony Mackie’s Captain America, hinting that a collaboration could be “on the cards”.

“I mean, obviously being the Marvel nerd I am, I have watched every single DC plus Marvel show, and I thought his monologue at the end of Falcon and the Winter Soldier was just so fantastic,” he told the Associated Press.

“And the way that he embodies the role and the poise, what a perfect way to wrap up the arc of the Falcon, and then what a beautiful way to begin another chapter as the new Captain America.

“Again, this is a purely hypothetical thing – I would, hypothetically, love to potentially, perhaps, maybe someday work with him… if that was on the cards,” he added. “Maybe, again, not sure, cannot confirm nor deny. I’ve already said too much!”

Earlier this month, Liu told RadioTimes.com in an exclusive interview that he’s keeping his “fingers crossed” for a Shang-Chi sequel.”Certainly I hope to be back,” he said.
“Where we leave off in the movie certainly kind of alludes to it. Fingers crossed.” Meanwhile, Awkwafina, who plays Katy in the film, said she would “love” to return for a sequel, adding: “I think it would be cool to see if [Katy] develops any interests in anything. But I think, really, I want to see where her and Shang’s relationship goes.”Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings arrives in UK cinemas on Friday 3rd September.
