“Michonne” actress Danai Gurira joins Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER cast!
While no trailer was released (boooooo!), Kevin Feige did confirm some new cast additions to 2017’s Black Panther movie.
Perhaps most excitingly for comic book fans, it was confirmed that and Danai Gurira (The Walking Deead’s Michonne) will play Okoye, the head of the Dora Milaje sisterhood, an order of women who are groomed to possibly be wives of and act as bodyguards to the king of Wakanda.
Additionally, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will play Nakia, a member Dora Milaje, and Michael B. Jordan (Fantastic Four, Chronicle) will play warrior and strategist Erik Killmonge.
Black Panther will hit cinemas on November 3rd, 2017.
