While IMDB has been responsible for some classic jokes (Jennifer Walters was listed to appear in Captain America: The Winter Solider, for example), it can occasionally be mined for some useful tidbits. We recently found a listing for Spider-Man: Homecoming that we linked to a rumor we heard previously to help us potentially identify the character played by Donald Glover and now, we think we might have found another interesting tidbit. Crystal Michelle, the stunt woman for Letitia Wright in Black Panther, is listed as a stunt performer for Avengers: Infinity War, indicating that Shuri, the sister of T’Challa, is set to return for the event.
Kevin Feige has said that the events of Black Panther are “very important” and link directly to the events of the next two Avengers film and a recent casting call seemed to reveal a search for Wakandan scientists, so while it’s not surprising that Shuri will appear, this is the first indicator of Wright’s possible involvement in Infinity War.
While many fans have theorized that perhaps Wakanda will be revealed as the location of the final Infinity Stone, the Soul Stone, we are hoping that we’ll see one of Thanos’ generals invade Wakanda, as seen in Johnathan Hickman’s Infinity. In the event, the Black Dwarf invaded, and was turned away by T’Challa, his sister Shuri, and the Wakandans, helping turn the tide of the invasion and giving hope to the rest of the heroes. We already believe that Avengers: Infinity War will feature Proxima Midnight and Corvus Glaive, so perhaps we’ll see another member of The Black Order invade Wakanda!
