Letitia Wright Is Confident All-Female Avengers Movie Will Happen: "It's Only A Matter Of Time"

Letitia Wright also shares who she wants on the team.

Letitia Wright believes an all-female Avengers film will happen soon.

The 26-year-old star has played the role of Shuri in Black Panther and two Avengers flicks and believes that an all-female superhero ensemble will come to fruition in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it already has the backing of producer Victoria Alonso.

In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Letitia was asked about the possibility of a female team-up. She said: "I don't think we have to fight for it. Victoria Alonso is very strong about spearheading it, alongside Kevin [Feige, Marvel chief]. It's only a matter of time before they do it."

Asked who her dream line-up for the movie would be, Letitia wants her Black Panther co-stars, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o and Angela Basset; Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel.

“Definitely have to have Captain Marvel, definitely,” she adds. 

Letitia also opened up about how special it was to star in Black Panther, the first motion picture from Marvel to feature a predominantly black cast.

She said: "It was always a dream of mine to play someone that can be impactful not only for black women but also just for women around the world and young people, too.

"To be able to have a combination of people and audience members who are so thrilled and appreciative of Shuri is a good feeling. I feel like I contributed something positive in the world." — BANG
