Avengers: Infinity War Adds Black Panther's Danai Gurira

Danai Gurira

Because the cast of Avengers: Infinity War and the still untitled movie that will follow it is so big (we're talking most of the MCU here), you'd think there'd be no room for more people. You would be wrong, as Black Panther's Danai Gurira is bringing her badass warrior Okoye to the battle.

While we've yet to meet the formidable fighter played by the Walking Dead stalwart – Black Panther isn't out until next February, after all – Deadline's report doesn't specify what she'll be doing in the massive Marvel mash-up currently being brought to life by Joe and Anthony Russo. But given that Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa is in the film, he'll need his best warriors with him.

The huge film brings together the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Pratt, Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Saldana, Benedict Cumberbatch and too many more to name. With such a hefty cast, you have to imagine they're sharing trailers.

Gurira will make her MCU debut in Panther, due on 16 February. Before that, she's appearing in All Eyez On Me, out on 30 June.
