When Black Panther came out fans were surprised to find out that little sister Shuri, played by Letitia Wright, is the smartest person in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. People have been wondering how she would mesh with other smart characters like Tony Stark or Bruce Banner and during an interview with Good Morning America Wright revealed that Shuri is more tech-savvy than even Iron Man.
“Shuri, c’mon. She’s young. Without a doubt. You know, Iron Man is like the OG of the Marvel universe. He’s the Godfather. Shuri respects him, but I feel like she has ideas that she can pitch to him and make his tech a little bit better. But watch the film, see what happens.”
The secrecy of this shoot has been an ongoing discussion and Wright mentioned that she didn’t even want to talk about the little that she does know.
“It’s so top secret. It’s the most secretive project I’ve ever been on. To the point where anything I do know, I don’t even wanna tell it.”
Shuri was one of the breakout characters of Black Panther so it’s awesome that we’ll get to see more of her in Avengers: Infinity War.
Summary: As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos.
