If I ask you about the most intelligent MCU character, you’d probably pick Tony Stark or Bruce Banner. But according to Infinity War Directors Joe and Anthony Russo, the honour of intelligence goes to a royal teenager of Wakanda.
This came straight out of the creators, the Russo Brothers, who describe each hero in the film and when asked about Shuri, they said that she is indeed the smartest person in the whole MCU.
After all, she is behind the advanced technology in Wakanda as we saw her designing weapons and suits for her brother T’Challa aka Black Panther in 2018’s Black Panther. A genius like Shuri clearly seem to know how to utilitise vibranium.
It’s difficult to figure out who’s the smartest in the world of superheroes. On one hand, we also have Vision who has the entire internet in his head or even Rocket Raccoon, as a matter of fact, who can make weapons out of scraps. Obviously, they aren’t humans so they disqualify from the list.
We hope to see more of Shuri in Avengers 4 that is scheduled to release on May 3, 2019.
