Danai Gurira must have made a really good impression on Marvel Studios. Gurira, who plays Okoye in Black Panther, will be joining the The Avengers team in the sequel “Avengers: Infinity War”, Deadline reports.
We don’t know the extent Gurira’s Okoye part will be in Infinity War yet, but judging from what we have seen of her in “Black Panther” trailer, plus the fact that Gurira has been slaying a ton of zombies on the small screen as Michonne on AMC television horror drama series The Walking Dead, we already know Gurira’s fighting skills are going to be pretty busy.
A follow-up to 2015’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, Infinity War is supposed to be the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Black Panther hits cinemas on February 16, 2018, while the nineteenth film installment in MCU is scheduled for release a few months later on May 4, 2018.
The Tony-nominated playwright of Eclipse will next be on the big screen on June 16 in the Tupac Shakur biopic “All Eyez On Me” where she plays Tupac’s political activist mother Afeni Shakur.
