Danai Gurira

The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira will star in upcoming superhero film Avengers: Infinity War. Gurira, who is also an accomplished playwright and dramatic actress (Mother of George, All Eyez on Me), is best known as sword-wielding Michonne on the popular AMC show. She also features in the upcoming Black Panther film, for which a trailer dropped, with much fanfare last Friday.

While there’s been no confirmation on Gurira’s Avengers character, fans are speculating she’ll most likely be playing her Black Panther character Okoye, one the many female warrior who watches over the Black Panther’s family.

Avengers: Infinity War will hit theaters in 2018.
