Earlier this year, the world was treated to arguably the best Marvel movie to date: 'Black Panther
We were introduced to the whole new world of Wakanda as well as the culture from other African countries.
Speaking of Wakanda, there was one Wakandan in particular that we adore. And no, it wasn’t T’Challa or Black Panther; it was in fact his sister Shuri that we were smitten with.
Some fans even dubbed her as the “Best Disney Princess ever” because not only is she super smart and has cool gizmos and gadgets that’ll put Tony Stark’s suits to shame, she’s a total badass and queen of sass.
So naturally, fans demanded Marvel to make a standalone movie for her in the future.
Well guys, we may not be getting a Shuri standalone movie any time soon, but we guess Marvel heard how much we love her, because she is getting her own standalone comic book series.
The writer of the comic book, Nnedi Okorafor, confirmed the news via her Twitter account and she even shared the first issue’s cover.
The new series featuring Wakanda’s sole princess is slated to drop in October 2018
. It will focus on Shuri’s journey as Wakanda’s new leader after his brother, the Black Panther, gets lost in space during a mission.
Okay Marvel, thanks for the comic series. So, when can we expect a standalone Shuri movie next?
