Letitia Wright's Shuri is confirmed for Avengers 4 and Black Panther 2 return

Avengers 4 is expected to have a cast to rival (or even exceed) the superhero pile-up of Infinity War, but plenty of characters we’re assuming will return are yet to be confirmed.

Well, we can strike one off that list of uncertainty – Letitia Wright will be back as Shuri in Joe and Anthony Russo’s Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel.

Deadline reports that the British actress (and Black Panther favourite) recently completed filming on Avengers 4 – presumably referring to the movie’s reshoots.

It also confirms what we would have expected – that she will star in Black Panther 2 when it arrives as part of the MCU’s Phase 4.

Shuri was last seen knocked aside by Corvus Glaive as Thanos’ forces invaded Wakanda to capture Vision’s Mind Stone.

Wright’s on-screen mum Angela Bassett (who plays Wakanda’s queen mother Ramonda), has confirmed that Shuri was one of the survivors of Thanos’ infamous Snap.

The report announced that Wright will be starring with Star Wars‘ John Boyega in director Mike Cahill’s science fiction romance Hold Back the Stars.

Described as ‘Romeo and Juliet meets Gravity‘, the film will adapt Katie Khan’s novel about a couple from a utopian future Earth who remember their romance while trapped in space with a rapidly dwindling oxygen supply.

Avengers 4 will be released in the UK on April 26, 2019, and in the US on May 3, 2019.
