Ryan Coogler explained: “The film deals with a lot of things, but one of them is the bad guys – people who exist in contrast, but have a similarity. Weekly entertainment. “In this movie, we get to see Shuri meet someone who has some things in common with her, but is also very, very different.”
Riri Williams launched her Marvel comics in 2016, on the pages of Iron Man is invincible. While studying engineering at MIT – Tony Stark’s alma mater – Riri reverse-engineered an old model of Iron Man’s armor and fought a bit of crime, naturally attracting Stark’s attention and then doing working with an AI clone of Tony after he was in a coma.
