Did Letitia Wright, the stellar Guyanese actress who played Shuri in ‘Black Panther‘, just drop major details on the project’s sequel?
It seems so.
An exciting report below…
Wright attended an MCM Comic-con show in London hours ago and spoke to fans about her thoughts on ‘Panther’ and its ties to the latest ‘Avengers’ picture.
What she insinuated about Shuri’s future?
Wright was answering an audience member question on whether she was prepared to step up as ruler after Thanos’s actions in Avengers: Infinity War left the leadership position at least temporarily vacant. “To be comic-book accurate, yes,” she said.
Shuri’s fate was left unclear at the end of the Infinity War film. However, in the comic books, her genius-level intellect, martial arts skills, and transmorphic ability saw her tested and approved for the role of Black Panther and ruler of Wakanda.
Those who have seen ‘Infinity War’ will know why this news will excite anyone eager to score insight into ‘Panther’s sequel which is expected to see its production kick off by the end of next year.
