Zheng Zu is Shang Chi’s father and the Emperor of K’un Lyn
In the comics Zu is Shang-Chi’s father and the Emperor of K’un Lyn. The superhero was created from Zu’s “heart from the steel of the Ebony Blade melted in the Eternal Flame.”
Although the part may only be a minor one, Chan is rumoured to be in negotiations with Marvel Studios for the role. If confirmed, it will be announced officially at ‘Disney d23 Expo’ from 23-25 August 2019.
Furthermore, Zu eventually becomes a villain in the comic book series, which could mean Chan playing a more prominent role in the future.
In other news, Liu recently responded Asian Boss’s YouTube video in which people were asked if he was “too ugly” to play Shang-Chi.
