Marvel Studios have been tight-lipped about the upcoming finale film, Avengers: Endgame. While the film still has a month until it hits theaters, fans received a tough reminder Tuesday of who perished during the previous film, Infinity War.

While most faces in black-and-white didn't shock fans, it was the face of one Wakanda hero who met their demise that left fans dumbfounded.

Black Panther's tech-savvy sister, Shuri (played by Letitia Wright) ended up being one of the 32 heroes who were killed during the film.

Interestingly enough, the movie didn't directly play out Shuri's death and even Angela Bassett, who played Shuri's mother, Ramonda, believed her and Wright's character survived Thanos' snap.

"No. Neither did my daughter. Shuri, she's a bright girl there in Wakanda," Bassett told Screen Rant after being asked if Ramonda met her demise during Infinity War.

Though it can't be confirmed exactly how the Wakanda princess died, Shuri was later seen in the final battle in Wakanda trying to separate Vision from the Infinity Stone in his head. Eagle-eyed fans saw her picture alongside Scott Lang's on the Avengers computer as a part of the missing in the first Endgame trailer back in December 2018.

No matter the terms of her death, some Avengers fans weren't buying it and began on a debate of whether Shuri is simply missing and presumed dead.

"We just know she's missing and likely presumed dead. Remember, she is on the monitor next to one showing Scott Lang in first End Game trailer, but we know he turns up alive," one Twitter user noted. "Her last scene shows her taking Mind Stone data with her. Think she winds up being important."

"I'm not buying this. There's no way in hell they'd give her an off-screen death. Cause that's some sh***y writing if it's true," another person added. "I mean come on, you don't think it's suspicious that she's the only character who 'died' offscreen."

Whether Shuri is truly dead or missing, one Wakanda woman is confirmed alive–General Okoye (Danai Gurira).
