Simu Liu and Jade Bender are making quite the appearances. The two were seen at the San Diego Comic-Con 2022 with a slew of other big names who rocked Hall H. The 'Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings' star is rumored to be dating Bender who made headlines with Netflix's 'Senior Year'.
The two were recently seen together on the ESPYS red carpet recently. At SDCC 2022, they were joined by Ethan Peck and Paul Wesley from 'Star Trek' franchise. Also joining in were Lauren Ridloff ('The Walking Dead'), Aldis Hodge ('Black Adam') along with Jack Dylan Grazer and Asher Angel ('Shazam!'). Both Liu and Bender looked in a good mood as they posed for pictures. The actor was seen keeping it simple with a blue sweater and slim-fitting black trousers. Bender rocked a sleeveless red top and a floral-printed skirt with several tassels.
The couple sparked dating rumors after their initial interaction at the 2019 Unforgettable Gala in Beverly Hills. They soon made a style statement at the ESPYS and now were seen all smiles at the Comic-Con where Liu's presence also confirmed his future appearances in the MCU. Their red carpet date comes at the ESPYS after the two were spotted at a Jimmy Kimmel Live! taping in Los Angeles where the MCU star had a fun chat with guest host Chelsea Handler in Kimmel's absence.
It was confirmed that Liu would be featured in a sequel of the blockbuster MCU flick last December. Talking to Complex, he expressed excitement about his return. 'What I really loved was hearing about DestinDaniel Cretton] coming back. Again, not a surprise, but we absolutely love to see it. He's such a critical part of the success of that movie,' he said. "I want to say, I often get a disproportionate amount of credit for the movie doing as well as we did, but it really, really is Destin. You know, it's the filmmaker and storyteller. It's very much his medium," he added.
