Danai Gurira (“The Walking Dead”) is set to reprise her “Black Panther” character of Okoye in the Russo brothers’ upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War” for Marvel Studios.
In ‘Panther’, she plays one of the Dora Milaje, the personal bodyguards of the Wakandan royal family. She was recently seen in the role standing alongside Chadwick Boseman in the interrogation scene of the “Black Panther” teaser trailer.
The casting comes as Boseman has been seen on the film’s set and reports are the production is now filming scenes set in Wakanda.
At the same time Sebastian Stan has posted a workout video of himself getting ready for filming. Stan’s Bucky Barnes/The Winter Solider character was last seen being put in cryogenic storage in Wakanda.
