Audiences experienced the trip to Wakanda with Black Panther which not only showed T’Challa accepting the throne but, revealing his family and close friends. One of the remarkable characters happened to be his sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) whose super intellect helped build various devices that came handy in T’Challa’s battle with Killmonger. Now that Shuri is expected to have a more prominent place in the MCU, Wright is already aware of how things would be when her character meets Tony Stark or Bruce Banner.

“I think she’ll be OK,” Wright told The L.A. Times. “I think she would humble herself to learn from them and challenge them as well with new designs and new ideas from Wakanda. And she’s willing to learn from the West because her brother is so open now. I think she’s embracing that as well. She would hold her own.”

With the Marvel Cinematic Universe approaching its Phase 4, it is likely that Iron-Man will exit the shared universe for good, creating an opening for a tech expert. Considering Shuri’s on-screen appeal, she might just be the right person to replace Tony Stark in future.


There is no doubt that Black Panther is going to be a major foundation stone for the future MCU, we are likely to see a lot more of Shuri, and the relationship between the siblings that was Black Panther’s highlights.

It was easy, and I’ll tell you why. I feel like it was ordained,” Wright talked to Variety about working with Chadwick Boseman. “I really, really feel like this is just a God thing. Even before I met him, I knew that he was going to play my brother. I just knew that we would connect because of the type of actor he is as well.

He’s a person of the spirit, a like soul. Very grounded, down-to-earth, humble. I knew that when I met him, I wasn’t going to try and impress him, to force a friendship. I was just going to vibe and see if we connect on a soul level, and we did. And even in our first scene together, it was kind of like we’ve always been brother and sister.”

Black Panther is shattering box office records as of now and it will be followed by Avengers: Infinity War on May 4th, Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6th, Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, Avengers 4 on May 3, 2019, Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 on July 5, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2020.
