‘Black Panther’ Star Danai Gurira Joins ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Danai GuriraWith the first teaser for Marvel’s Black Panther dominating the internet, fans should be excited for what comes right after that film. Not only will we see T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, but he will also be joined by Okoye (Danai Gurira) in the upcoming film.

Avengers: Infinity War is set to be the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe that began with Iron Man in 2008. Since that film was released, each entry within the MCU has continued to expand the landscape of this franchise that now features heroes that were lesser-known in mainstream audiences’ eyes and are now viewed as household names.

Before being cast as Okoye, Gurira was Michonne in AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead. Gurira will next be seen in the upcoming Tupac Shakur biopic, All Eyez On Me, which hits theaters on June 16, 2017. Gurira plays Afeni Shakur, the mother of Tupac.

What do you guys think about the addition of Okoye in Avengers: Infinity War? Will part of the film explore Wakanda? What other MCU characters do you think will make an appearance in this epic culmination that will bring the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy together to fight off Thanos (Josh Brolin)? Sound off in the comments below.

Marvel’s Black Panther will hit theaters on February 16, 2018. Meanwhile,  Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War will open in theaters on May 4, 2018.

Black Panther

This past Friday, after previously seeing the first poster for Black Panther, the main event came later that night. While we watched the NBA Finals, hoping to see the Warrior sweep the Cavs (Lebron wasn’t having any of that), fans were treated to the teaser trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther. Shortly afterward, the trailer was released online for everyone’s consumption.

Pretty much for the next 24 hours, the teaser has been endlessly viewed and talked about on social media as well as in person. The trailer was incredibly exciting, fun, fresh, and everything fans of the character have hoped for ever since he was first introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. We got to see T’challa, the Dora Milaje, and countless other goodies to introduce us to the world of Wakanda. The movie, with a 90% African/African American cast, will be a superhero first and give audiences something completely brand new. Hardcore fans and newbies alike were very excited for what’s in store for the new film, so let’s take a deeper look.

    This is getting ridiculous, it’s either going to be four hours long or everyone but RDJ and Thanos are glorified cameos at best.
