Simu Liu claims to have played the role of ‘Shang-Chi’ in a 2014 tweet on Saturday Night Live.

Simu Liu debuted as a host on Saturday Night Live in November.

The 32-year-old actor opened the show with an enthralling monologue about everything from being Canadian to how he landed his role in Shang-Chi, reflecting on an old tweet in which he manifested the role in the Marvel film.

Liu began by making a joke about being Canadian, then went on to talk about Thanksgiving in the United States, describing it as a “prelude” to Black Friday shopping.

He then listed some of the things for which he was grateful, including his new role in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

Liu went on to say that he was hired because he “asked politely,” and he shared a tweet from July 2014 that said, “Hey @Marvel, great job with Cpt America and Thor.

“How about a hero who is Asian American?”

@Marvel, you did a fantastic job with Captain America and Thor.

What about a superhero who is Asian American?

Liu later revealed that before getting his big break as an actor, he used to dress up as Spider-Man for kids’ parties.

“You’re not Spider-Man,” a kid named Trevor told Liu, and Liu looked at the camera and said, “You’re right Trevor.”

“Hi, b*tch!” says Shang-Chi.

Liu shared his excitement — as well as his nerves — in a hilarious Instagram post ahead of his big night.

“On a turkey anxiety scale of one to ten,” he wrote, followed by “I am” and ten turkey emojis.

“I’m in the dressing room right now, and I’m doingomscrolling through TikTok.”

WHY DOES EVERYONE KEEP SENDING SUPPORTIVE TEXT MESSAGES??!?! Why isn’t Addison Rae making me feel better?! What the hell is a Kool Aid Man challenge??! WHY DOES EVERYONE KEEP SENDING SUPPORTIVE TEXT MESSAGES??!?!?”

“Watch me completely break down mentally tonight on @NBCSNL,” Liu added.

“It won’t be spectacular, but it will be remembered.”

It’s like watching a video of an unmasked Karen having a meltdown in a CVS, but with a lot more crying.

My career will be remembered fondly.”
