Avengers: Infinity War is promising to be a spectacle like no other, with a growing slate of many of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most prominent characters. And now, it appears that one of the MCU's newer characters could make their way into the Marvel Studios film's expansive cast.
MCU Exchage recently discovered a new bit of information hiding in Infinity War's IMDB page. While the cast list is by no means complete, it now boasts Crystal Michelle - the stunt double for Black Panther star Letitia Wright. Wright plays the titular character's sister, Shuri, who goes on to take on the Black Panther mantle in the comics.
Wright has yet to officially make her MCU debut, with Black Panther debuting in February of 2018. But this cast listing seems to indicate that she - and her stunt double - will cross over to Infinity War as well. For those who are already eagerly anticipating Shuri's entrance in the cinematic universe, this return appearance is sure to be welcome news.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain."
