BLACK PANTHER's SHURI Spinning Off Into Her Own Ongoing Title

BLACK PANTHER's SHURI Spinning Off Into Her Own Ongoing Title

The series will be written by award-winning Nigerian-American writer Nnedi Okorafor, best known for her science fiction novel Who Fears Death, which is set to become an HBO series with George R.R. Martin as executive producer.

Announced over at The Bustle, Marvel is spinning off the Black Panther's Shuri into her own series in October. Art will be by Eisner-nominated Leonardo Romero.

The Black Panther comic title was reinvigorated in 2016 under author Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Okorafor described Shuri to Bustle as "a character in the Marvel Universe who really sings to me", saying that Shuri's genius-level insights have helped her travel "spiritually so far into the past that she's seen Wakanda before it was Wakanda". But if any player was the true break-out hit of Ryan Coogler's film it was Letitia Wright's Shuri - T'Challa's super-smart Q-like younger sister who kitted her big brother out with fancy gadgets, while poking fun at him at every opportunity. "Alllll that and more". In Coates' series, T'Challa is now away at the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda and the throne is now empty. I'll just let her tell you about that...

Does a spinoff comic book series mean that a spinoff movie could be in Shuri's future?

Being the next in line to the throne, Shuri must leave the place she is most comfortable, her laboratory, and help lead her country and protect it from evil. Queen Shuri in the house! "She'd rather be testing gauntlets than throwing them", reads Marvel's description of the book. Ultimately, she may be faced with choosing the well-being of Wakanda or her own.

When will you be able to dig into this dopeness?

Oh look, do you see what we see?

Regardless of whether that happens here, Marvel Studios have already promised that Shuri's going to be making future appearances beyond her brief turn in Infinity War.
