Danai Gurira will return as Okoye in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), which he joined in 2016, with the first film of the multi-Oscar nominee “Black Panther,” and which continued with his participation in “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018) and “Avengers: Endgame” (2019). Although so far Marvel Studios has not released its official statement, a report by the specialized media The Hollywood Reporter, maintained that the actress will return to play the leader of the Dora Milaje -warriors who defend Wakanda- not only in the next film of “Black Panther” but in a series of her own for Disney Plus.

According to the outlet’s article, attorney Jamie Mandelbaum negotiated that Gurira – who is also known for her work on “The Walking Dead” – “not only repris her role as Okoye in the upcoming Black Panther sequel, but also in a spin-off series for Disney+”.

So far, the only thing certain about the “Black Panther” sequel is that it won’t bring T’Challa back, following the shocking passing of Chadwick Boseman, the actor who brought him to life on screen, who for several years battled colon cancer. Its title is “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, and will be directed again by Ryan Coogler (who was also in charge of the first and “Creed”). Meanwhile fans are hoping that the hero’s legacy will be continued by his sister Shuri (Letitia Wright). As for the Dora Milaje, they had a recent participation in “Falcon and the Winter Soldier”: when they intervened after Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) released Zemo (Daniel Brühl).
