The show ran from Friday and ended today. Wright was answering an audience member question on whether she was prepared to step up as ruler after Thanos’s actions in Avengers: Infinity War left the leadership position at least temporarily vacant. “To be comic-book accurate, yes,” she said.
Shuri’s fate was left unclear at the end of the Infinity War film. However, in the comic books, her genius-level intellect, martial arts skills, and transmorphic ability saw her tested and approved for the role of Black Panther and ruler of Wakanda.
Wright also talked about the online chatter that she is now technically a Disney Princess.
She continued: “I’m so honored, seriously. I grew up on the Disney movies and grew up with the Disney Princesses and they didn’t really look like me. But now, you can go buy action figures and say ‘this is a Disney Princess’ – right on!”
