There’s no doubt that the Dora Milaje is one of the highlights of Wakanda. With the fantastic appearance of Ayo (Florence Kasumba) in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, hearing that more of these badass warriors will be on Disney+ is welcome news. The fact that the rumor is Okoye is even better.
Sources claim that Danai Gurira will be reprising her role in not only Ryan Coogler’s upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever but also in an original spin-off series for the streaming giant. While Disney has yet to comment on the news, The Hollywood Reporter dropped the reveal in the outlet’s profile on her attorney Jamie Mandelbaum of Jackoway Austen Tyerman Wertheimer Mandelbaum Morris Bernstein Trattner & Klein. Gurira herself has also yet to comment about the show.
Coogler is also behind the new show. The filmmaker and his Proximity Media have signed a five-year exclusive TV deal with the studio. Details about what the show will focus on and where in the timeline it takes place remain a mystery.
Wakanda Forever is scheduled to hit theaters on July 8, 2022. Stay tuned for more updates on both the cinematic sequel to Black Panther as well as what’s coming from Marvel’s streaming show.
