Get ready to see more Danai Gurira in the MCU. The actress has agreed to replay Okoye in the upcoming Black Panther spin-off series on Disney+ and Ryan Coogler’s forthcoming sequel Black Character. Forever Wakanda “Hollywood Report” first listed the casting news on the top entertainment lawyers list, but Collider has since confirmed this to sources close to the project. Representatives of Disney and Marvel did not comment. The untitled Black Panther TV series will take place in the Kingdom of Wakanda, from Coogler’s Proximity Media banner. The plot details are still confidential, but the old high-tech society provides fertile ground for the scripted series. Although it is still unclear who will join Gurrila’s show, Okyoe’s participation is a good start. “Ryan Coogler is a unique storyteller.


His vision has made him one of the most outstanding filmmakers of his generation. With “Black Panther,” Ryan is true, meaningful, and An unforgettable way to bring innovative stories and iconic characters to life has created a decisive cultural moment. We are happy to strengthen our relationship and look forward to telling more wonderful stories with Ryan and his team,” Disney’s Bob Eagle said in a recent statement when the deal between Cogler and Disney was announced. Kugler is currently working on a sequel to “Black Panther.” After the tragic and premature death of star Chadwick Boseman, it will not recast the protagonist.


The Marvel movie is scheduled to be released on July 8, 2022, and Proximity is eager to expand the story on the screen. Coogler’s collaborators include his wife Zinzi Coogler and Sev Ohanian, Archie Davis, Peter Nicks, and composer Ludwig Göransson. Before joining the Marvel Universe, Gurrilla played Mijon in The Walking Dead. She returned as Okoye in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. In the upcoming biopic, she also collaborated with Shirley Chisholm. The actress had worked with directors such as Tom McCarthy and Wes Craven, is represented by UTA, Suskin Management, and as per the THR link below, attorney Jamie Mandelbaum.
