Did Shuri save Vision?

Sounds like Shuri swerved Thanos snap

British actress Letitia Wright will be spreading her brilliant comedic-timing further afield in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It has reportedly been confirmed that the actress will reprise her role as Shuri in the anticipated Avengers 4 in 2019 and the Black Panther sequel.

We are totally ready for those slick, witty one-liners, girl.

Following her star-turn in Black Panther, the fan-favourite character did appear in Avengers: Infinity War in April and it seems she really did survive Thanos potentially fatal finger snap.

In addition to Avengers and Black Panther, Letitia has also signed up to star alongside John Boyega in sci-fi romance Hold Back the Stars, directed by Mike Cahill. Its being pipped as a Romeo and Juliet meets Gravity and, frankly, sounds like something we are totally down for.

Sounds like a real trip.

Avengers 4 is set to hit screens on 27 April although a trailer is yet to be released.
