You don’t mess with Okoye…
We’re about to learn a bit more about our favourite Dora Milaje general, Okoye in the upcoming Disney+ series centred around Wakanda, according to Deadline. While the show does not currently have a title, it will centre around the fictional African nation ruled by King T’Challa… RIP Chadwick Boseman.
Danai Gurira will return to her role of Okoye though it’s unclear currently as to what capacity the character will play. After all, there has been speculated that she will have a larger role in the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever film. Will she take on the role as the titular Black Panther? We don’t think so as the role generally reserved for those of royal birth.
Depending on what they decide to do with T’Challa, the title of the Black Panther will likely go to Princess Shuri as that is what happens in the comics. Also, her brother has no children to succeed him so the logical choice is his little sister who, by the time of the film’s events, will be of age.
Going back to the Wakanda series, it would not surprise us if Okoye comes in and out of the story like Ayo did during The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Who the show will focus on is up for debate but it could very well be an anthology like What If…? will be. We’ll just have to wait and see what is going to happen. There’s no information at the moment as to what the show will be about. There’s not even a release date at the moment, nor has it been placed within the fourth or fifth phase of the franchise which has been a box office and now streaming success.
When we have more information we will definitely be sharing.
