Letitia Wright reckons it is "only a matter of time" before an all-female Avengers film hits the big screen.

The 26-year-old actress, who played the role of Shuri in Black Panther and two Avengers outings, is confident that a female fronted superhero group will come to fruition in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it already has the green light from producer Victoria Alonso.

Speaking to Yahoo! Entertainment about the possibility of a female-strong team, Wright said: "I don't think we have to fight for it. Victoria Alonso is very strong about spearheading it, alongside Kevin (Feige, Marvel chief). It's only a matter of time before they do it."

When asked who would be in Wright's ideal squad, she picked Black Panther co-stars, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong'o and Angela Basset. She also said she'd like Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel to be fighting on the same team.

"Definitely have to have Captain Marvel, she said. "Definitely."

Wright also discussed how special it was to star in 2018's hit Black Panther  - the first motion picture from Marvel to feature a predominantly black cast.

"It was always a dream of mine to play someone that can be impactful not only for black women but also just for women around the world and young people, too," she said.

"To be able to have a combination of people and audience members who are so thrilled and appreciative of Shuri is a good feeling. I feel like I contributed something positive in the world."
