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.

According to Deadline, Letitia, 25, recently wrapped filming on-set of Avengers 4, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and its believed Shuri was appearing in the productions reshoots.

Shuris fate was left up in the air in Infinity War with her being knocked aside by Corvus Glaive when Thanos charged into Wakanda to steal Visions Mind Stone.

Letitias Black Panther co-star, Angela Bassett, recently leaked the news of Shuris return, when confirming that two Wakandans survived Thanos snap, telling Screen Rant in July: No. Neither did my daughter. Shuri, shes a bright girl there in Wakanda. So…

So… well take that as our girl Shuri is definitely back.

Shuri won over hearts in the first installment of Black Panther, with her fierce attitude and brilliant humour – What are thoooose? – so her return will be welcomed with open arms by Marvel fans.

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.

The movie is an adaption of Katie Khans novel about a couple from a dystopian Earth who recall their romance while trapped in the depths of space with a rapidly diminishing oxygen supply.

Sounds like a real trip.

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

Spider-Man out of Marvel Cinematic Universe prompting fans to boycott Sony

Spider-Man: Far From Home has already grossed $580m at global box office A Still from Spider-Man: Far From Home

Marvel will no longer be producing any Spider-Man films, after Disney bosses failed to come to an agreement with Sony.

According to Deadline, the studios were unable to come to an agreement over money, meaning Spidey is ducking out of MCU for now.

The publication states Disney asked that any future films starring the superhero – currently played by Tom Holland – be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement, something Sony refused to consider.

Instead, they reportedly suggested to keep their current deal, offering the studio 5 per cent of the first dollar grossing, with the studio declining.

Marvel president Kevin Feige was creative lead in the previous two Spider-Man films of the latest era, with 23-year-old Tom climbing into the superhero suit.

But unless a negotiation is reached, he will not have the same role in the two movies reportedly in the works.

L to R: Spider-Man/Peter Parker (Tom Holland), Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Drax (Dave Bautista), Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff)

Understandably, fans are not impressed with the developments, with some even threatening to boycott Sony over their involvement.

Flocking to Twitter, one fumed: @Sony needs to go back to negotiating table with @Disney to keep #SpiderMan in the #MCU Spidey movies need to be in that universe and we dont need Sony to f*** it up again. #savespiderman.

Ill be seriously p***ed if #SpiderMan is no longer in the MCU, another said. I guess Sony hasnt learned their lesson.

Im gonna go ahead and call Sony on their bluff. Im pretty sure they will not pull away from Marvel, yall worrying over nothing. When Disney wants something they get it, thats it! #SpiderMan, a fan suggested.

#SpiderMan far from home was the highest grossing Sony movie, but yet this still took him away from the MCU!! Oh, these MFers extra stupid, a Twitter user fumed.

While a follower added: #BoycottSony They cant take Spidey away like this! Boycott Sony until they give #SpiderMan to Disney! FULL CONTROL OVER THE CHARACTER!!

The news comes after it was revealed Spider-Man: Far From Home – aka the second instalment in the recent series – has become Sonys highest grossing film of all time.

Meaning Spidey is even bigger than James Bond.

For those wondering about Laurence Fishburnes character Morpheus, well Variety claims the studio is looking for actors to play a young Morpheus, leading to suggestions about when the sequel is set.

Its been a long time coming for Warner Bros., who have reportedly struggled to get Matrix 4 off the ground over arguments about who owned rights.

Kristen Stewart was pictured visiting a Los Angeles spa on Monday, leaving us wondering if she needed a relaxing massage as well after the trailer for new monster flick Underwater dropped.

Kristen, wearing a white crop top and black leggings, arrived at the spa on her own for a treatment (or maybe two) on the same day as the trailer for the new thriller was released.

Underwater stars Kristen, John Gallagher Jr and Vincent Cassel as a crew of underwater researchers who must scramble to safety after an earthquake devastates their subterranean laboratory.

But the researchers, who are seven miles under the oceans surface, realise that there may be a bigger concern than just getting help after the earthquake.
