Danai Gurira's 'Black Panther' Character Okoye to Get Origin Series on Disney+

Danai Gurira‘s future with the Marvel Cinematic Universe is looking bright!

The 43-year-old actress, who plays Dora Milaje general Okoye, will reportedly be getting her own origin spinoff series on Disney+, according to Deadline.

The outlet also reports that Danai will be returning for the upcoming sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which will be directed by Ryan Coogler.

Coogler is reportedly working on a separate Wakanda series for Disney+ and Deadline says it “would not come as a shock” if Danai stars in that show as well.

There are so many MCU shows in the works for Disney+. WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have both aired and next up is the premiere of Loki on June 9. Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye are both set for late 2021 releases.
