On the red carpet of the 2022 ESPY Awards, the Marvel hero Simu Liu declared the relationship he has been having with the actress Jade Bender official.
The adorable couple struck some poses for the cameras who were present at the annual awards event that was held on Wednesday night to honor outstanding achievements in sports.
Both Liu and Bender wore stunning outfits; Liu wore a sleek black suit, while Bender wore a shimmering off-the-shoulder dress. Neither of them could have looked better.
Together, Simu Liu and Jade Bender are having the time of their lives.
The action comedy Bullet Train, which opens in cinemas this Friday, had its Los Angeles premiere at the Regency Village Theatre on Monday night, and the pair was there. While Bender, 24, wore a green dress and high heels, Liu, 33, of Marvel sported an all-gray suit.
At one point during the premiere, Liu performed a dance number for the cameras, to which Bender responded jokingly with a “wow.”
The actor from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings posted photographs and comments about meeting Bullet Train star Brad Pitt on Instagram.
There was my life before I met Brad Pitt, and now there’s my life with Brad Pitt. He joked that from this point forth, things would only get easier.

At the 2022 ESPY Awards, which took place about a month ago, Liu and Bender made their first appearance together on the red carpet.
Liu and Bender were seen in the audience at a live taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Los Angeles a few weeks before their date on the red carpet. A week before her appearance on the late-night talk show, Liu was seen on camera as she exited a restaurant in West Hollywood with a mystery date.
It is reasonable to infer that Bender and Liu have known one another for a considerable amount of time since they were pictured together at the Unforgettable Gala in Beverly Hills many years ago.
PEOPLE had the opportunity to speak with the author of We Were Dreamers: An Immigrant Superhero Origin Story before he made history as the first Asian superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He shared his excitement with PEOPLE.
He observed, “This is beyond anything I could have ever imagined.” When I was a kid, long before the Marvel Cinematic Universe existed, I used to like watching Marvel films. I can’t even remember how long I’ve had the want to go to the theatre and see a superhero movie. That is the precise answer that I’ve been seeking for.
