Marvel’s Shang-Chi actor is not a fan of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, but unlike most people we know, Simu Liu’s reason might surprise you.
Early this morning, Liu took to Twitter to share his thoughts on recently released and underperforming Birds of Prey movie, saying “watch #BirdsOfPrey – it’s a great film w/ strong comedy, great action and incredible performances – PLUS features kick-ass female heroes!!” The Candian actor went on to explain why he enjoyed Birds of Prey more than Suicide Squad, and we couldn’t help but laugh at his response.
Watch #BirdsOfPrey – it’s a great film w/ strong comedy, great action and incredible performances – PLUS features kick-ass female heroes!!
Also unlike Suicide Squad they DIDN’T block off my condo entrance to film for a week, making my commute a living nightmare… #StillSalty
