Shuri’s Reaction to Her Sister’s Death Revealed by the Actor

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is going to be an emotional experience. Ever since the passing of Chadwick Boseman in 2020, Marvel fans have had to carry the weight of such a tragic loss along with them every day. As hard as it has been for audiences around the world, it was certainly something else entirely for the cast and crew returning to set for a sequel without the iconic actor.

While the real people behind the scenes had to deal with the loss, there are also the characters in the fictional world of the MCU. Disney has confirmed that T’Challa will be dead, and the nation of Wakanda will be reeling from the loss of their beloved king.

Dealing With T’Challa’s Death

In an interview with Black Girl Nerds at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, the cast of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever talked about what it was like coming back on set during its first week of filming, with Letitia Wright also talking about how her character, Shuri, reacted to the loss of her brother.

Wright shared that while shooting the movie, she was basically “trying to do therapy at the same time,” and that the “first week… wasn’t easy, but [they] had each other and each day got better.”

Shuri Gets Lost in her Work

Grief hits everyone differently. The journey people go on to deal with those intense emotions is never an easy one. Shuri will undoubtedly be taking the loss of her brother heavily. It seems fitting that the way she’ll deal with all of that will be for her to dive head first into her work.

Currently, within pop culture fandom, the thought process is that Letitia Wright’s Shuri is the clear pick for the successor to the mantle of Black Panther. It’s not clear if this is what will be happening, but there are plenty of signs indicating how that’s the direction Marvel is going.

Wright teased an increase in Shuri’s technical prowess; so, could her potential new Black Panther suit include some nifty tricks that have never been seen before? Stuff like that could certainly come in handy when it comes to facing off against Namor.

Fans will have to wait until November 11 when Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits theaters to know how everything plays out.
