If there is one group of fans equally engaged as The Walking Dead fans, it’s fans of the Marvel films. Whether you side with Captain America or Iron Man, we’re happy to see TWD alum Danai Gurira (Michonne) in the new Avengers: Infinity War trailer.
If you’ve been wondering where Michonne has been in the past eight episodes of The Walking Dead, she’s likely been helping The Avengers. Actress Danai Gurira was written as an injured Michonne. This way, she could be in the third installment of the Avengers franchise, along with a role in Black Panther.
Look for Danai Gurira around the 2-minute mark in the trailer above.
Michonne Takes On The Marvel Universe
This first trailer is mainly meant to highly the various characters in one film, seeing as it doesn’t show an awful of plot points. The new bad guy is clearly Thanos, voiced by actor Josh Brolin (Brolin is ironically going to be Cable in Deadpool 2, as well).
As the trailer also highlights, this is the first time we’ve seen Black Widow, Dr. Strange, Ant-Man, Black Panther, Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, The Hulk, Spider-Man and the Guardians in the same film.
Avengers: Infinity War is set to come out on May 4, 2018. But, we’re actually going to get a chance to see Danai Gurira in Black Panther on February 16, 2018.
Black Panther Uncovers New Origin Story
In the Black Panther origin film, “T’Challa, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.”
Michonne-actress Danai Gurira will play Okoye in the Marvel universe. In the first few trailers, it would appear that she’s the right-hand for T’Challa (Black Panther). In addition, she clearly also knows how to fight.
The Black Panther first hit the big screen in Captain America: Civil War. The 2016 film (now on Netflix) was the third of the Captain America movies, but also the first time we saw the bulk of these characters on the same screen.
In fact, this was the first time Spider-Man was ever in a Marvel-made movie (Tom Holland), even though there had been five Spidey films before (Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield).
This, of course, was because Sony owned the rights before, but now Marvel has their own studio. Despite the delay, the new movie looks epic.
Are you looking forward to these two Danai Gurira films in 2018?
