Danai Gurira to Appear in Next ‘Avengers’ Movie
Though she has yet to appear as Okoye in the upcoming Black Panther film, actress Danai Gurira has already booked another gig as the character in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. For those of you not familiar with the comic-book character, Okoye is the leader of the Dora Milaje, a fearsome group of female warriors who watch over the royal family of the fictional African country of Wakanda.
Danai Gurira is gracing the inside pages of the October edition of DuJour magazine. The Walking Dead actress stuns in a colorful six-page spread, which was lensed and styled by photographers Peter Ash and Paul Frederick.
Danai is presently having a career defining moment as a playwright, having landed Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o to star in her off-Broadway play Eclipsed. “It’s exciting working with Lupita,” Danai told DuJour. “I wrote this play specifically with her in mind.”
