Another BLACK PANTHER Character Confirmed for AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is by far the studio’s biggest ensemble film yet, featuring countless heroes and other characters introduced in this film. Think of any character who’s still alive (unless you’re Nick Fury), and chances are, they’re in the movie. Now, we have confirmation for someone else.

Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri in Black Panther, will reprise her role in Infinity War. IMDb originally reported the news. Typically, IMDb isn’t the most credible source for upcoming movie news, as anyone can go in and edit information. However, Wright confirmed her Infinity War role on Twitter.

Shuri is T’Challa’s “innovative” sister, who creates new technology for Wakanda. Currently, she is the third Black Panther character confirmed for Infinity War. Danai Gurira will reprise her role as Okoye, the head of the Dora Milaje.  And, of course, Chadwick Boseman will return as T’Challa himself.
Stay tuned for more updates as we have them.
