If you’re a huge fan of Danai Gurira on The Walking Dead, for the general badassery she brings to the series as Michonne, you’re going to love the news that broke earlier this morning about her next role.
While we know she’s got a role in Black Panther, Marvel’s highly anticipated film with a cast so incredible that we’re already hailing it one of the top 5 films of 2018, she’s been cast in another Marvel film as well. Any guesses to where she’ll appear after her breakout role in the comic book universe as Okoye?
If you guessed Avengers: Infinity War – you’re right! While we’ve yet to so much as hear her speak a line of dialogue as Okoye, she’s heading to Infinity War as Black Panther’s head of security and leader of Dora Milaje. If you didn’t know yet, the Dora Milaje is the all-female royal guard. Talk about making quite an impression, the role seems to be made for Danai.
Are you ready to follow the fearless leader as she soars into Infinity War? Are you looking forward to seeing what type of impact she’ll have on the Marvel Universe? We know that we are.
Oh, and don’t fret – if you’re wondering what this means for Michonne on The Walking Dead, the filming is reportedly allowing her to successfully handle both roles. One article even said that the filming for Infinity War is local, so it won’t be too much for her to juggle. However, even if she had to travel, it’s not like she couldn’t handle it, once she sets her mind to something, she not only succeeds, she blows it out of the water.
