BLACK PANTHER's Letitia Wright On The Potential For Shuri To Don Her Own Vibranium Suit And Replace T'Challa

Modern Marvel comics saw Shuri succeed T'Challa as the Black Panther and ruler of Wakanda. Could similar events play out in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Shuri actress Letitia Wright responds.

The cast and crew of Marvel's Black Panther have described Shuri as someone who's smarter than Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark.  This fact was reinforced in the recent Avengers: Infinity War prelude comic.  Aside from her vast intelligence, Marvel lore reveals that Shuri is destined to one day succeed T'Challa as both the Black Panther and ruler of Wakanda. 

Just as fans are wondering when or if Bucky will ever inherit the mantle of Captain America from Steve Rogers, the question of Shuri's future will certainly become a hotly debated subject in the coming years.  Wright said she's game to suit up but the timing has to be right and the focus right now will be on the Black Panther sequel.

"I hope, whenever the time is right, if it’s 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?"

Black Panther opens in North America and India on February 16.  It opens in China on March 9.
