Earlier this week, MCU Cosmic ran a piece speculating that Awkwafina’s unnamed role in Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings could be the villain Fah Lo Suee, instead of Leiko Wu as many had hoped. New information has surfaced that seems to confirm that the earlier casting was for Fah Lo, as Marvel is now looking to cast their Leiko Wu.
According to Discussing Film, Marvel is looking for a Chinese-American actress to play a secret agent in an upcoming movie. This describes Leiko Wu precisely, as she is a MI-6 agent, former lover of Clive Reston, and ally to both him and Shang-Chi. It’s different from the previous casting that described a loyal soldier, as that description points to Fah Lo Suee.
So from this and the earlier casting, it looks like we’ll see both Fah Lo Suee and Leiko Wu in the upcoming Shang-Chi movie.
