SHURI Confirmed For “Avengers: Infinity War”

Looks like Black Panther’s little sister will be tagging along a little longer.

Shuri will be joining Black Panther, Captain America, and the rest of the team in the upcoming Avengers film, Avengers: Infinity War.

Actress Letitia Wright, who appeared in season four of Netflix’s Black Mirror talked with about her experience on the upcoming film and working with Chadwick Boseman.

“It was amazing. It was surreal to just see certain characters that I’d been watching as an audience member for years and then be opposite them. I can’t say who but it was amazing. I keep using the word amazing today. I just have to walk around with a sign that says, ‘Black Panther and the whole Marvel experience of working on Avengers: Infinity War was also amazing!’ It was amazing.”


The tech savvy princess of Wakanda is already becoming a fan favorite.

The actress also expressed feelings about starring in a stand alone movie based on her character.

“I hope, whenever the time is right, if [a Shuri movie] is meant to happen, I would happily do it. But you can’t have a Shuri movie without T’Challa and you can’t have a Shuri movie without Ramonda and Nakia and the rest of the Dora Milaje and Okoye. So, I guess, the question is: when can we have Black Panther 2?”

Both Boseman and Wright have such great on screen chemistry.  See for yourself in the clip below!

Black Panther is set to hit theaters Feb. 16.  Pre-ticket sales have already surpassed every other Marvel super hero film.
