‘Daredevil’ actor Peter Shinkoda accuses Jeph Loeb of racism on set

Peter Shinkoda, who played Nobu in ‘Daredevil’, is speaking up about racially-charged treatment he received on set.

Daredevil actor Peter Shinkoda has shared multiple stories via Zoom and on his Twitter account this weekend, accusing then-Marvel Executive Vice President of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb of racist comments on set, including cutting his character’s original story arc because “nobody cares about Chinese people.”

Shinkoda played Nobu, the leader of The Hand in Netflix’s Daredevil. After that video made the rounds (and he retweeted it), he Shinkoda shared another story about his time on Daredevil. “#WaiChingHo aka #MadameGao and I, aka #Nobu of #Daredevil weren’t at the season 2 premiere…because we weren’t invited,” he tweeted. “We found out about the event as it live-streamed.”

The comic book industry continues to come to grips with its long-simmering underbelly of racism and sexism, and this is yet another unfortunate story.

After Peter Shinkoda spoke up about his experiences on Daredevil, several other people on Twitter shared similar stories about Loeb. Says comic book writer Alejandro Arbona:
