Even though she enjoys teasing her brother, she deeply cares for him. After Killmonger’s victory, Shuri and Queen Ramonda stop at nothing to revive T’Challa and restore him as the righteous Black Panther. She then fights alongside the Dora Milaje to save Wakanda. She is portrayed by Letitia Wright in the movie.

Killmonger

In Black Panther, Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), full name Erik Stevens or N’Jadaka, is a special ops soldier trying to overthrow his cousin T’Challa, who is the Black Panther and king of Wakanda. Killmonger has very different views on how Wakanda should be ruled.

Black Panther

In Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther is the superhero identity of T’Challa, the King of Wakanda, a fictional African nation. After eating a mysterious plant poisonous to many non-Wakandans, he gained the peak of human strength and agility on the same level as Captain America. Black Panther is Marvel’s answer to Batman, and cousins with Killmonger.
