Every Marvel flick has a stand-out character who really hits a chord with viewers. In a movie as popular as Black Panther — a veritable box office blaster with nothing but amazing roles — winning this popularity contest is even more impressive, which is why Shuri's sudden acclaim is so notable. Black Panther's brilliant, courageous little sister is a total badass who deserves all the accolades she gets, and, wow, is the world loving her. Now, fans are calling for the brainy tech princess to star in her own stand-alone Marvel movie à la Iron Man.
We can't help but support the movement.
Fans aren't only loving Shuri for her inventive mind, loyalty and quick wit. She's also being hailed as a creative genius able to look outside of the box.
Not only is Shuri an amazing role model for young women, but she's an inspiring character for anyone who might be underestimated for their age and gender.
So, naturally, supporters are all about the Wakandan princess getting the attention she deserves.
Wouldn't it be great to live in a world where both the Black Widow and Shuri have their own movies?
Dare to dream.
