‘Daredevil’ Actor Peter Shinkoda Claims Jeph Loeb Made Anti-Asian Comments
Daredevil actor Peter Shinkoda took a stand on Sunday during #SaveDaredevilCon as he claimed that former head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb said anti-Asian comments during the production of the series. Shinkoda, who played Nobu Yoshioka, talked about how a potential storyline delving into his character’s relationship with Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho) got scrapped. “Jeph Loeb told the writers room not to write for Nobu and Gao,” Shinkoda said. “He said, ‘Nobody cares about Chinese people and Asian people. There were three previous Marvel movies, a trilogy called Blade that was made where Wesley Snipes killed 200 Asians each movie. Nobody gives a shit so don’t write about Nobu and Gao.'” As a result, the storyline was dropped. From what I remember about Daredevil… yeah, all this sounds about right.
