‘Black Panther’ Actress Letitia Wright Teases More Shuri in the MCU


Letitia Wright is teasing the possibility of returning to her role as Shuri from the Black Panther films. “Let’s just say … I would like to continue with Shuri,” Wright said during an appearance on wildly partisan and nearly unwatchable daytime program The View when asked about her appearing in future Avengers movies The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars, set for May 2026 and May 2027, respectively.


“She’s one of my favorite characters. Such a blessing, honestly. I kid you not, I’m so grateful for her.” When co-host Sunny Hostin pressed Wright about a potential Black Panther 3, the actress and executive producer coyly responded, “There’s a lot to, a lot to — a lot coming up.”




While a threequel to the Oscar-winning franchise hasn’t officially been greenlit at this point, the end of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever sets up a story nicely. The final moments of the film introduced Prince T’Challa (Divine Love Konadu-Sun), son of King T’Challa (the late Chadwick Boseman) and Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o).


A card was also featured at the end of the sequel and noted: “Black Panther will return.”
