Danai Gurira has joined the cast of Avengers: Infinity Wars with a tie in for the new Black Panther film.

It is likely that she will be reprising a MCU role as Okoye, one of the personal guard of the Black Panther and the royal Wakandan family. The film is set to be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo.

Gurira is known for playing Michonne on Megahit The Walking Dead.

Gurira next co-stars in All Eyez On Me, the biopic of rapper Tupac Shakur. Demetrius Shipp Jr plays Tupac, and Gurira playing the hip-hop icon’s mother, Afeni Shakur (who actually was a member of the Black Panthers). It is set for release this Friday.
