Shuri Might Be in for a Comeback: Letitia Wright Hints at Major Future Marvel Projects!


MCU has a lot of projects coming up the one closest to us is definitely ‘Deadpool & Wolverine.’ Alongside tons of other confirmed projects, there is also a ton of confirmed ones such as ‘Black Panther 3.’

Wakanda will be the focus of many projects in the Multiversal Saga, starting with Ryan Coogler’s Wakanda-Set Television Series, Untitled Okoye Series, and the animated series ‘Eyes of Wakanda’ which was supposed to be released sometime in 2024.

Letitia Wright who currently portrays Shuri/Black Panther in the MCU recently appeared on The View to promote her ‘Sound of Hope: The Story of Possum Trot,’ a movie she produced. Wright was all too eager to answer whether there were plans for her to return as Shuri:

If it’s, uh, let’s just say, let’s just say…I would like to continue with Shuri. She’s one of my favorite characters, such a blessing, honestly, I kid you not. I’m so grateful for her.

When asked whether ‘Black Panther 3’ was on the horizon Wright was careful when it came to answering the question: There’s a lot coming up.

In January 2023, Letitia Wright mentioned that a third ‘Black Panther’ film was being developed, but Marvel has yet to make an official announcement.

Wright debuted in the MCU in 2018’s ‘Black Panther’ as a younger sister of Black Panther played by Chadwick Boseman. The movie was a financial and cultural hit, being proclaimed as one of the best cases of representation within the fantasy genre in recent years. Chadwick ultimately died of colon cancer and the studio decided not to recast T’Challa for ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.’ Wright’s Shuri took over the mantle of Black Panther within the MCU, a somewhat comic-accurate adaptation of the comics, and a move that fans obviously expected.
