Letitia Wright Teases Stark/Shuri Dynamic Ahead Of Avengers: Infinity War


Between them, Tony Stark and Letitia Wright’s Shuri are two of the smartest minds currently inhabiting the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

And when you consider that the MCU also houses the likes of Bruce Banner, Wong and Doctor Strange, that’s really saying something. It’s a credit to Wright’s fan-favorite, then, that Shuri has emerged as one of the biggest supporting players of Avengers: Infinity War, and one need only look to the sequel’s newest clip for evidence of her effortless roasting in motion – much to the dismay of a curious Bruce Banner.

That footage arrived by means of Good Morning America, after the outlet sat down with Letitia Wright earlier today to discuss all things Infinity War, along with the potential competition brewing between her Shuri and Tony Stark. Asked who’s the more tech-savvy of the two, Wright responded as so:

Shuri, come on! She’s young and cool. You know, Iron Man is like the OG of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s the godfather, so Shuri respects him. But I feel like [there are] ideas that she can pitch to him, you know, and make his tech that little bit better. But watch the film, see what happens…

Further in the interview, Good Morning America pressed Letitia Wright about the script situation, stating that only one member of Infinity War‘s cast (Benedict Cumberbatch) has read the entire thing front to back.

No. Man, I wish I could tell you what’s happening…I don’t know! It’s so top secret! It’s the most secretive project I’ve ever been on, to the point where anything I do know, I don’t want to tell it because I don’t know if it’s right.

Yes, it seems Marvel’s no spoiler policy knows no bounds – and for good reason, given Avengers: Infinity War is arguably the most important addition to the MCU thus far. And with Avengers 4 coming down the pipeline, this is merely the beginning of the end.
