Marvel Studios officially announced plans to move forward with a sequel to Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings yesterday, with Destin Daniel Cretton back on board to write and direct. Star Simu Liu has now shared his response to the news via Twitter... aiming a little dig at certain YouTube channels in the process.
As you may recall, Liu posted a collage of video screenshots to his Instagram stories with an unmissable "LOL" right in the center back in September after Shang-Chi's $90M+ opening weekend. This was a response to some notorious trolls who've been hating on the MCU movie from the very beginning, and the always outspoken actor couldn't resist taking another swipe!
Liu quote-tweeted Deadline's report with, "Flopped so hard we got a sequel!!"

Some felt Liu might have been jumping the gun at the time since we had no way of knowing how the movie would perform over the course its full 45-day theatrical run, but Shang-Chi has now taken in $431.9 million worldwide, and is actually the highest-grossing domestic film of 2021 with a $224.5 U.S. haul.
