Yeoh is no stranger to action movies.

Some of Yeoh’s other notable credits include Memoirs of a Geisha, Crazy Rich Asians, Star Trek: Discovery and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. She will also be in the upcoming Avatar movies and Netflix’s The Witcher: Blood Origin.

Is Everything Everywhere All at Once a Marvel movie?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been playing around with the multiverse, specifically in its movies Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and its Disney Plus TV series Loki. Is Everything Everywhere All at Once and its multiverse adventure at all related to the MCU?
In a word, no.
Everything Everywhere All at Once is an original screenplay developed by the Daniels with no connection to Marvel and its movies (aside from Michelle Yeoh starring in the MCU movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings). In fact, Jamie Lee Curtis has had some fun poking the Marvel bear (opens in new tab), highlighting the differences between what Everything Everywhere does with the multiverse as compared to the superhero goliath.
