  • The Chinese-Canadian Lin has seen his star rise thanks to a small part in 2018’s Aquaman as Murk and a well-received role in Black Mirror Season 5. Lin did extensive martial arts training for Saban’s Power Rangers, which is of course relevant to the role of superhero martial arts master Shang-Chi. All this has made him a candidate for the role and the report says it may be enough to have earned him a sit-down with Marvel’s Kevin Fiege. Lin has been pursuing the role since December 2018.

  • However, the report says that Lin is by no means the only actor being considered for the part of Shang-Chi and that we should expect to hear more names soon.
