Former American tennis star Serena Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian are ardent Marvel fans. The celebrity couple not only follows the movies but also shares a close bond with a few of the MCU actors. Back in 2021, Marvel came up with their first Asian-origin superhero, Shang-Chi.

Canadian actor Simu Liu played the titular role and gained immense fame. The Asian-origin actor is also a social activist and recently came up with his book. Subsequently, Alexis Ohanian reacted to the same in his own unique style. Here’s what he said.
