Coming out of Black Panther everyone seemed to agree that Letitia Wright’s Shuri stole the movie. She wasn’t just the funniest person on screen but the smartest. Moving forward Shuri will likely become an integral part of the MCU meaning we may see her pop up in movies not set in Wakanda.
One MCU actor who would love to see that happen is Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland. Ahead of the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Holland discussed the idea of Peter Parker getting the opportunity to interact with Shuri:
“I think Peter would love it. There’s some great moments in the comics where Peter ends up there. And Letitia and I have become really good friends over the last year and a bit. It would be brilliant to have our characters meet up, it would be so funny. She’s brilliant in the movie, she’s actually my favorite part of Black Panther.”
Much like Shuri, Peter Parker is a gifted scientist who has a knack for inventing things. A bit of that was on display in last summers Spider-Man: Homecoming but imagine what crazy things Shuri and Peter could conjure up using Wakandan technology. It’s also entirely possible that the two will cross paths in Infinity War but only time will tell if that comes to fruition.
