It looks like Shuri will be the next Black Panther in Black Panther 2 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From the latest MCU tie in book we see what Shuri has been up to in the MCU. Things that appear to correspond to the Black Panther 2.
Chadwick Boseman will never be substituted, but a new and different Black Panther looks to be arriving in the form of his sister.
But first, exactly who is Shuri?
Shuri is a comparatively recent character in the mythology of Marvel Comics. In 2005 she made her debut in Black Panther comic issue #2, the fourth volume of the title.
She was co-created by writer Reginald Hudlin and classic comic artist John Romita Jr. as part of the Black Panther Series Reboot. Hudlin originated from beyond the comics and was well recognized for his role as a film and television producer and novelist, such as House Party and The Great White Hype.
This new volume of Black Panther made several improvements to the origin of the character and the essence of his plot, several of which were soon omitted after Hudlin ‘s departure from Marvel Comics. However, Shuri has remained a part of Black Panther ‘s stories ever since this fiercely contested comic series run.
So now we can see why this character might have attracted the great actress Letitia Wright to playing it.
