Citizens of Wakanda, you have a ruler in waiting.

You may remember a scene in Black Panther where Prince T’Challa’s sister, Shuri, appears to stake a challenge for the crown during her brother’s inauguration.

While the line was written as a joke, the actress behind Shuri, Letitia Wright, has declared that she would very much like to take on the role of the Marvel superhero.

Whilst attending MCM London Comic-Con, the English actress was asked about taking over as the Black Panther, to which she replied: “If the opportunity came about, then why not? It would be comic book accurate. Yeah, that would be amazing. It means more training, more learning and it would really be an amazing adventure. Shuri becomes a savage in the comic books. From going to comedic and fun and like a kid — to then just pulling out some claws. I’m excited.”

Yasss, queen.
