When are we getting an all-female Marvel movie? It’s a question asked more and more often by fans as standout characters like Shuri, Okoye, Valkyrie, Scarlet Witch, Gamora and more continue to emerge on the big screen. ET sat down with Black Panther breakout star Letitia Wright, who says she’s ready to team up with the ladies of Marvel.
“Let's just do it!” Wright exclaims to ET. “I think if we're going into the next phase of Marvel, we've gotta completely take that off the list. An all-female Marvel cinematic experience. I'm down for that.”
While this hopeful MCU movie is more headcanon than anything (at the moment), the record-breaking success of Black Panther makes a sequel almost inevitable -- and it might be time to break Shuri out of the lab this time around.
“I would like to see [Shuri] venture out [of Wakanda] a little bit more and go on different missions around the world, and hopefully, she can go on those missions with her brother,” Wright says of the probable sequel. “I'd like to see her have a bit more responsibility in the land as well. She is a princess and I think in the first film she's kind of like, 'Yeah, I'm a princess... but I'm in the lab.’ But for her to have a bit more responsibility of having a say in what happens in the land as well, and what goes on, that would be cool because it can show a little bit more of maturity for her.”
Speaking of ‘princess,’ given Disney’s relationship with Marvel Studios, the internet has since dubbed Shuri an official Disney Princess. See her adorable reaction and more in the video above.
Black Panther is now available on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD.
