Danai Gurira To Star in Possible Okoye Solo Disney+ Spin-off

Marvel Studios has a lot in the works when it comes to new films and new series for Disney+, but we know there are probably even more that we haven’t even heard about yet which makes us even more excited for the future. One of these possibilities could be a Okoye Solo spin-off for Disney+


If you are unsure of who Okoye Solo is or haven’t seen Blank Panther, Okoye Solo is one of Wakanda’s greatest warriors who proudly protects her country’s king alongside the Dora Milaje. Okoye serves the Black Panther as a personal bodyguard and the nation of Wakanda as a torchbearer of tradition and virtue.

A recent post by Jamie Mandelbaum, the lawyer for Danai Guriria, seems to indicate that the actress and Marvel have agreed to a new series.


Reports are clear that this is still a rumor and that they can’t be sure if this is a new series or in connection with the Wakanda series already announced for Disney+. While we can surely expect to se Okoye in future crossover events and films, but we could also potentially see her in her own solo spin-off origin story.

Would you be interested in a series featuring Okoye Solo?

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
