Letitia Wright Believes All-Women Avengers Is ‘Only A Matter Of Time’
An all-women Avengers team isn’t impossible. There could still be a chance that we get to witness that in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Letitia Wright is confident about it.
The Black Panther star recently sat down with Yahoo! Entertainment, where she revealed her excitement for her upcoming projects. She also explained how she believes an all-women Avengers film is “only a matter of time.”
“I don’t think we have to fight for it,” she said. “Victoria Alonso [Marvel Studios’ EVP of Production] is very strong about spearheading it, alongside Kevin [Feige], Marvel Studios President]. It’s only a matter of time before they do it.”
Wright also shared all the heroes she would like to fight beside in the film: Okoye (Danai Gurira), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson).
“Definitely have to have Captain Marvel, definitely,” she added.
Wright also spoke about the significance of playing Shuri, a strong, powerful, Black woman on screen. “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,” she said.
