With Danai Gurira set to appear alongside Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa in next year’s Black Panther, now comes word that she’ll be reprising her role for Avengers: Infinity War.
Gurira, best known to genre fans as The Walking Dead’s Michonne, is playing Okoye in Black Panther – a character who is a key member of the Dora Milaje, the totally badass all-female bodyguards who accompany the King of Wakanda. As per Deadline, this character will appear in both Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther and Anthony and Joe Russo’s next Avengers picture.
The synopsis on Black Panther reads:
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king – and Black Panther – is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
