In 1994, our beloved stoic agent / Disney princess / overall badass Ming Na-Wen was in a live-action adaptation of the popular video game Street Fighter. In it, she played fan favorite Chun-Li and she rocked the hell out of it.
That flying side kick! That don’t-eff-with-me-face! My hero. It’s like I was button-mashing and she was kicking that dude’s butt.
That was 26 years ago, Wen is now centered firmly in her role as Agent May on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD — or is she?
Wen brought those iconic double buns back just a few days ago, sharing this on Twitter:
First of all, girl, did you already pack the picture in the attic that is aging for you because damn. Secondly, someone remake Street Fighter but just cast Ming-Na Wen as Chun-Li again, because clearly she can hack it. (Aaaarms.)
It’s like she knew our timelines needed the help, the cleansing, and what else does a hero do? They help.
Thank you for this gift, Ming-Na Wen!
