“Back in 2014, and this is a true story, I tweeted, ‘Hey, Marvel, great job with Captain America and Thor. Now, how about an Asian superhero?’” Simu recalled. “And at the time, I think the tweet got like 10 likes, which was like 10 more than I usually got.”

“But I worked hard and five years later, Marvel did make their first Asian superhero movie, and after I got the part, I went online and tweeted, ‘Thanks for getting back to me,’” Simu jokingly added.
