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.

Mark Medoff, who won a Tony Award for writing Children of a Lesser God and earned an Oscar nom for its movie adaptation, died Tuesday at Mesilla Valley Hospice in Las Cruces, NM. He was 79.

Children of a Lesser God won the 1980 Tony for Best Play and ran for more than two years and 880 performances at Broadways Longacre Theatre. The show about a hearing speech teacher at a school for the deaf who falls for a deaf custodian was turned into a 1986 feature directed by Randa Haines. The film starred William Hurt and Marlee Matlin, who won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for the role. Hurt and supporting actress Piper Laurie also scored Oscar noms, and the film was up for Best Picture but lost to Platoon.

Children of a Lesser God, 1986

A revival of Children of a Lesser God played on the Main Stem for six weeks last year. Medoff also penned Prymate, which had a brief Broadway run in 2004.

Medoffs other feature writing credits include The Outright Winner (2016), City of Joy (1992), Claras Heart (1988), Good Guys Wear Black (1978) and the 1979 adaptation of When You Comin Back, Red Ryder? — which was based on his play that won him the 1974 Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding New Playwright.

Born on March 18, 1940, in Mount Carmel, IL, Medoff also had roles in more than a half-dozen films, including his penned pics Claras Heart, Red Ryder? and Santa Fe (1997). He also produced a handful of features.

His final film is Walking with Herb, a faith-based drama starring Edward James Olmos, George Lopez and Mary McDonnell. Medoff wroRead More – Source
