>>Based on her popularity, it’s no accident that Shuri was front and center in one of the best-remembered sequences from Avengers: Endgame — when Marvel’s many female heroes assembled in a heroic tableau as they make their final stand against Thanos. That scene prompted calls for an all-female Avengers movie that Wright herself has been campaigning for, and key Marvel Studios executives like Victoria Alonso and Kevin Feige have endorsed.
>>“I don’t think we have to fight for it,” she says of how that proposed team-up is coming together. “Victoria Alonso is very strong about spearheading it, alongside Kevin. It’s only a matter of time before they do it.”
>>Asked who her dream line-up for the movie would be, Wright makes it clear she’s thinking big, starting with her Black Panther co-stars, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o and Angela Basset aka “Mama Angela.” Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie is also in the mix, as is the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most powerful player, Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, both of whom were featured in that Endgame scene alongside Shuri.
>>“Definitely have to have Captain Marvel, definitely,” Wright says. With Shuri and Captain Marvel side by side, an all-female Avengers movie would absolutely fly higher, further faster... to the top of the box office charts.
