In the short video clip that was included in First We Feast’s initial Tweet, Liu expresses his concern about tasting the intimidating hot sauces.
“I am pretty nervous,” said Liu. “I’m not gonna lie. I’m looking at the sauces, and, um… oh my god, that is just the face of a monster that’s spitting out fire. So… I don’t, I don’t know… I don’t know. Let’s see what happens.”
You may be thinking, “That doesn’t sound like an Avenger gearing up for battle.” But consider this, Marvel Blog True Believers: bravery is being afraid and then doing something anyway. Now accept that plate of tacos from Smart Hulk and get ready for your taste buds to be sent to another dimension, Shang-Chi!
First We Feast couldn’t help but pick up on Liu’s pun-tacular response, and soon, a parody poster was Tweeted from the account, as well:
And Liu is far from the first Marvelous guest on Hot Ones, which has also featured stars such as Captain America himself, Anthony Mackie.
