Shuri was easily one of movie-goers' favourite characters from the Hollywood hit film, Black Panther. When news was shared that she died off-screen, fans went into a frenzy and are still in disbelief.
When Marvel announced their list of 'fallen' heroes, it caused quite a stir because there was one death that didn't feel right.
The off-screen death of Wakanda's Shuri came as a shock because fans believed she was only missing.
The list of survivors and victims of Thanos and his evil plans were shared by means of a poster; those who are alive were shown in colour and those who didn't make it were in black and white.
Upset fans took to social media to express their surprise and disappointment at the feisty young woman's death.
Many movie lovers feel that she might still return, and if she doesn't, it's lazy story writing by the people behind Marvel's hits.
However, this is a Marvel film, after all, and it's quite possible that Shuri, and all the other fallen heroes, could turn up again.
We'll have to see Avengers: Endgame to find out.
Here's what some fans had to say:
