It’s not every day that a Marvel character shows up to your volleyball practice to fill in as a temporary teammate.
The men’s club volleyball team at The University of North Carolina, Wilmington were shocked to see that Simu Liu had joined them for the day during a practice session at the university. The club president, Bryan Sosa, said they were on Instagram when they noticed that the Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star wanted to play some volleyball while he was visiting the area.
According to WECT, Bryan reached out to the star via the Instagram app. Simu actually responded and pulled up on the crew while they practiced! The actor is currently in town working on a new film entitled One True Loves. The production crew and cast are expected to start filming the new film within the next week.
The official Instagram of the Men’s Volleyball Club posted a group photo including the actor and thanking him for joining them at practice. The Instagram post has been posted below.
@Dubsmensvb posted the photo with the caption:
“Big thanks to Simu Liu for coming to practice today! Does this mean we are avengers now?”
Simu Liu is best known for his role as Shang-Chi in Shang-Chi: Legends of the Ten Rings, which exceeded expectations, broke numerous records and catapulted the career of Simu who is now being picked up on various different projects.
One True Loves is going to be a film adaptation of the best-selling novel of the same name that was written by Taylor Jenkins and released in June 2016. The film will also star Phillipa Soo and Luke Bracey.
