Although several stars have vocalized their preferences for certain roles, there are a lucky few who have managed to make those dreams a reality.
Simu Liu made headlines in 2019 when he was cast as Shang-Chi in Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. At the time, the actor recalled a past tweet of his that predicted the role he would soon get to play.
“Hey Marvel, great job with Cpt America and Thor. Now how about an Asian American hero,” he wrote in July 2014.
Looking back on the instance of social media manifestation, the stuntman said had no clue that a simple thought would lead to the role of a lifetime.
“I had absolutely no idea it was going to happen. It was kind of just a facetious thing that I tweeted,” Liu shared during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show in September 2021.
“What’s happened in these next few years has been pretty incredible and pretty insane. So I am just pinching myself every day, to be honest.”
