Simu Liu’s Musical History Is Fascinating
Even though Liu’s Marvel superhero status makes him an A-list contender for hosting Canada’s biggest music event in February 2022, some people may find it difficult to comprehend why an actor would host Canada’s biggest music event.

A picture of Liu and Wentz was even shared by Liu on Twitter as proof, sharing a photo of them on the set.
