Letitia Wright Suggests That Shuri Could Become The Next Black Panther.
Speaking on a panel at the in London last Friday, Letitia Wright told a member of the audience that there’s a possibility of a princess-to-queen move, as that would be “comic book accurate.”
Speaking about this at the panel, Letitia Wright said:
“If the opportunity came about, then why not? It would be comic book accurate. Yeah, that would be amazing.
It means more training, more learning and it would really be an amazing adventure. Shuri becomes a savage in the comic books.
From going to comedic and fun and like a kid – to then just pulling out some claws. I’m excited.”
Therefore, if it turns out that T’Challa is actually dead, then Shuri will be taking over. While we saw that Okoye survived Thanos’ attack and T’Challa didn’t, Shuri’s fate was left unclear at the end of Infinity War.
In the comic books, however, her genius-level intellect and martial arts skills saw her tested and approved for the role of Black Panther and ruler of Wakanda.
So, we don’t know what this means in terms of Black Panther and the MCU, but all we know is that we’re all the way here for more Shuri.
