It seems that after the success of Shang-Chi, Canadian actor Simu Liu is making his way from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to Springfield as a guest star in a key role in The Simpsons storyline.

The titular MCU martial artist is slated to bring back Lisa Simpson’s “perfect future boyfriend.” Liu will be voicing adult Hubert Wong and guest star in the forthcoming episode, “When Nelson Met Lisa.” The episode will air as a part of season 34 of The Simpsons. Liu will join the recurring cast of Joe Mantegna as mob boss Fat Toy and Melissa McCarthy as Homer Simpson’s kid rival. In an interview with Deadline, co-showrunner Matt Selman who is also the executive producer and writer said, “I’m excited about Season 34. It’s probably the best 34th season of any show you’ve ever seen. We have two Halloween episodes this year, two Treehouse of Horror episodes. One is three scary stories like we always do, but very scary and weird.”

Selma teases fans of what to expect for the latest The Simpsons season saying, “We have Simu Liu from Marvel’s Shang-Chi in an upcoming show as Lisa’s perfect future boyfriend. We have our season premiere where Homer gets into a conspiracy cabal while hunting down a missing turtle. I’m very excited about one where Krusty has a kind of nice-guy-type afternoon syndicated Ellen DeGeneres talk show that surprisingly goes awry. And then we have huge guest part for iconic comedy legend Melissa McCarthy coming up. It’s a really juicy, funny part where she plays a kid who’s Homer’s rival for love from Grandpa.”

Season 34 is set to air on September 25 on FOX.

In other entertainment news, Harley Quinn season four is reportedly in the works.
