YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
If you’re anything like me, you have the mutual feeling of love and of being curb stomped by the most recent MCU Film, Avengers: Infinity War. However, knowing that a few integral characters that disintegrated into nothing at the end of the film have movies releasing in the next few years gives me hope and theories galore! One of which I have dubbed the “Shuri Theory”.
In the film, Captain America and his team take Vision to Wakanda in order to see if T’Challa can help remove the Mind Stone from Vision’s forehead with their fancy vibranium technology. Being the genius she is, Shuri is able to quickly figure out that vision is in fact embedded into the stone, BUT it is possible to separate him from it in order to save his life and allow Scarlet Witch to destroy the Mind Stone once and for all.
Once Thanos’s Children arrive in Wakanda, the timeline is sped up and we see Shuri furiously trying to finish the separation…which she fails. However, Shuri is one smart cookie and I fully believe she has all the properties of the stone and Vision saved in her computer. We did not see Shuri disintegrate into nothing and I also believe she is an important enough character to see disappear. This makes me think she is still alive and well (for the time being).
I personally think Shuri is going to have a large part in taking down Thanos and putting order back into their Universe. Here’s how. Like Uru, the material that creates Thor’s Hammer as well as the Axe wielded by the God at the end of the film, Vibranium can take on many different properties. Is it possible that Shuri would be able to recreate the stone using Vibranium, bringing Vision back to life, and creating an even stronger “Mind Stone” in order to help defeat Thanos?
What do you think? Am I crazy or is this actually possible?! Comment below and let me know! And make sure to check our other Avengers: Infinity Wars theory articles and go down the rabbit hole while waiting for the sequel.
