Letitia Wright Is ‘Hopeful’ About a Marvel Comeback as Shuri

The ‘Black Panther‘ group is still “like a family,” says Letitia Wright, who also tells that they make a point to get together occasionally.

Letitia Wright is excited to play her Black Panther character again.

The actress, 29, said she would “like to be hopeful” about returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Shuri, who takes over the superhero mantle from her brother King T’Challa (the late Chadwick Boseman) in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, in an interview while promoting her new film Surrounded.

“The way we end “Wakanda Forever“, it clearly shows that this character is going to go on a healing journey,” she says. “She has responsibilities as an auntie, and as someone who is one of the last remaining members of the royal family. That’s, unfortunately, just something that she’s dealing with.”

The actress continues, “The indication” of whether Shuri would appear in a later MCU film “is in the comic books, really.”

“The comic books reveal a lot,” Wright says.

Letitia Wright currently puts a high value on staying in touch with her Black Panther co-stars, who she regards to be “really a family” that she will “have forever.”

“We spread out and go do our thing and then we collectively come back. Every two or three years or so, I see everybody,” she tells.

For example, She just “a few months ago” met the actress who plays Okoye in the movies, Danai Gurira, and even rode camels in Dubai with Winston Duke (M’Baku).

“I text director/co-writer Ryan Coogler all the time, check in with him and his family. We have a great bond, a beautiful bond,” Wright says. “I see Mama Angela Bassett all the time, awards season — giving her flowers, just making sure that she’s good.”

Letitia Wright co-produced and starring in the movie surrounded as Cathay Williams, a Buffalo soldier who served as the model for Moses “Mo” Washington.

“Five years after the Civil War, freedwoman and former Buffalo Soldier Moses ‘Mo’ Washington travels west to lay claim on a gold mine — the summation of years of toil for Mo and her community,” reads an official synopsis of the film. “It is a mean, dangerous world for an unaccompanied Black woman in 1870 America, and so Mo travels into the deep frontier disguised as a man.”

“After her stagecoach is ambushed by a group of murderous thieves, Mo is forced to hold legendary outlaw Tommy Walsh (Jamie Bell) captive while the remaining surviving passengers seek out help,” it continues. “What ensues is a battle of wills, blurring the line between captor and captive, as they both try to survive the harsh western landscape.”

Asked about her first time both producing and starring in a film, Letitia Wright tells that the responsibilities’ “duality” made the project not “as daunting or as tough as it usually should be.”

“I got to just share my opinions on the script … and just the day-to-day on-set activities [in] that if something was going wrong, I would try to speak up and get things sorted as best as I could,” she says. “It was a good learning experience that took me into the other opportunities to produce, such as The Silent Twins, and then now my next film that I’m getting ready to do in January.”
