Alex Landi says it "would be dope" to play Shang-Chi in Marvel Studios' upcoming solo film. The actor, who plays Dr. Nico Kim, has thrown his hat into the ring for that highly-prized role - or any role, for that matter, in a Shang-Chi film.
"The first Asian superhero for Marvel, that would be dope," Landi told HuffPost. "That’s my dream role right there. Any role in that movie, I think, would be great."
The pro tennis player-turned actor has a background in martial arts, according to HuffPost.
Marvel Studios has reportedly hired Destin Daniel Cretton to direct the as-yet-unscheduled Shang-Chi film.
