Letitia Wright The New Black Panther - Signs Multi-Picture Deal | Barside Buzz

Here’s an interesting new rumor for you. Is Letitia Wright the new Black Panther? Bleeding Cool says Wright has signed a multi-picture deal to become the new Black Panther in their latest exclusive. Wright who plays Shuri has been a firm favorite to take the place of Chadwick Boseman as the MCU’s Black Panther. Yet, there are many, myself included who don’t think Wright is the best fit for that role. I enjoy the character of Shuri, however the person we saw in Black Panther did not come across as a potential warrior and leader to me.

I know something has to give, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is filming now and with Chadwick Boseman’s tragic death to Cancer, that role has to be filled. It goes without saying this is a rumor and for now we treat it with caution until we hear anything officially on this story.

My guess, is that Marvel Studios will keep this secret until the movie comes out. Then one assumes, if true, that Shuri will progress and develop throughout the film to take that mantle on. Who knows, by the end of Wakanda Forever I may be on board. However I just liked Shuri being the super brain younger sister who runs all Wakanda’s technical efforts. Is the goal with Riri Williams perhaps an attempt for Shuri to find someone who can replace her as she performs these new duties? Again, I have no answers and until this gets confirmed we are just speculating for now.

I must say though, that this news did not surprise me one bit. Despite me being cold on the idea, this is exactly what I figured would happen. I think Ryan Coogler is a great filmmaker though and Marvel Studios rarely missteps. I guess I’ll have to trust Feige on this one. If it gets confirmed as legit that is.

Is Letitia Wright the new Black Panther, has she signed a multi-picture deal with Marvel Studios? I guess we are going to find out. Sound off below as always.
