On Tuesday, the Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star, 32, took part in a Marvel Studios subreddit AMA where he answered fan questions in the lead-up to this movie, out in theaters this Friday.

Liu responded with a hilarious anecdote Cumberbatch, writing, "The warm and comforting feeling of Benedict Cumberbatch's hand on my shoulder at Comic-Con. Like a supportive but also sexy father."

In an interview on SiriusXM's Pop Culture Spotlight with Jessica Shaw, Liu recalled meeting the Doctor Strange star at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con while onstage at the famed Hall H.

"Four days after I was cast I was at Comic-Con but basically, we all got ushered onstage to take this group photo and I feel this hand on my shoulder," Liu said. "It's Benedict Cumberbatch. Doctor Strange has his arm around me."

He continued, "[Cumberbatch] said, 'Welcome, welcome, I'm so happy for you,' and literally that picture was taken in that second. It's immortalized forever somewhere."

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is the first Marvel film to feature an Asian superhero with Liu in the role of Shang-Chi.

Liu told PEOPLE in last week's issue he is proud to be making Marvel history.

"When I say that this is a dream come true, that is such a huge understatement," he said. "I used to love watching Marvel movies when I was a kid, even before, pre-MCU. If there was a superhero, I wanted to watch it. This is all I've ever wanted."

He went on to reveal that his first acting gig came after answering a Craigslist ad for Guillermo del Toro's 2013 sci-fi film Pacific Rim. Before that, the actor's parents were worried their son was throwing his life away by chasing his dream career.

In 2016, Liu landed his breakout role as Jung Kim in the Canadian comedy series Kim's Convenience, which wrapped in April.

Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings Movie Review: Spiritual, captivating and exquisite — Shang-Chi is one of the best solo Marvel films in a long time

Apex Legends will be releasing an update 10.1 very soon and we have all the details around what you need to know before it is released.

Players are always happy to see updates come to Apex as they typically fix bugs and make minor changes to weapons and Legends.

The battle royale game has been a huge success during Season 10 and the new Legend named Seer has quickly become a fan favourite.

Hopefully this upcoming update sorts out overpowered issues as well as some of the bugs that are causing Apex to not run as smoothly.

Here is everything you need to know about Apex Legends patch 10.1:

For now the release date for this upcoming patch has not been released. We should find out this information very soon and when we do find it out we will provide all the updates and information right here.

Not all the patch notes have been revealed yet and no doubt Apex will post them on social media soon.

There has been some news around what will be in the update as Apex told the community they have decided to remove tap-strafing from the game in patch 10.1.

They are doing this because it's inaccessible, lacks readability/counterplay, and is exacerbated by movement abilities.

We normally see an update drop in the morning in the UK and it will be no different for the 10.1 patch.

Hopefully it should be out around 9-10am on the date that it is released.

Kings Canyon has gone through some big changes since Emergence went live, and it would be interesting to see whether this patch made any minor changes to the map.

This update will be coming very soon, so be sure to keep an eye on this page for any updates and no doubt there will be a lot of patch notes to get through by the time the update drops.
