Black Panther 2 spin-off: MCU star Danai Gurira “vaguely” teases Okoye series

Black Panther 2 spin-off: MCU star Danai Gurira “vaguely” teases Okoye series

It seems Marvel Studios and Ryan Coogler‘s Proximity Media production haven’t forgotten about the Black Panther 2 spin-off series based on Okoye. In fact, Danai Gurira addressed the show’s development with a cryptic response at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday night. The Coogler-helmed sequel was nominated in five categories.  

Oscars 2023 was a night filled with celebration and disappointment for Black Panther 2 fans as Wakanda Forever took home the Costume Designer category while Angela Bassett was snubbed. Before the award session kicked off, the sequel’s co-star Danai Gurira shared a few kind words for Rihanna‘s Lift Me Up performance and Bassett’s nomination. But initially, the Okoye star also spoke in regard to her Disney Plus MCU series.

The Walking Dead actor is currently filming the TWD universe spin-off, Rick and Michonne. The actress revealed to ET she took a break to attend the 95th Oscars. Though initially when quizzed about the status of the Okoye-based Black Panther 2 spin-off series, she stated with a smile, “I’ve been told I can speak of it vaguely. So I will vaguely respond. There is my response”. Readers can check it out below. 

Earlier this week, news emerged that Marvel Studios’ Black Panther spin-off show had got the working title Golden City. However, it was unclear if it was meant for the series exploring the city of Wakanda or related to Okoye. 

Initially, Fans were concerned after Kevin Feige revealed a slow-down of “the pace at which we’re putting out Disney+ shows”. It meant a possible change in release plans for future titles while the studio prioritizes its near future line-ups, and in this scenario, like Ironheart. While that may be the case for projects that are yet to go into active development – it’s a good sign to know Marvel Studios has discussed it with the titular star and may have to hash it out before announcing the news to the world. 

Marvel Studios producer Nate Moore had earlier revealed the work that went into making Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Ironheart had apparently slowed progress on the other spin-offs from Coogler. So the Marvel Disney Plus show is yet to secure a spot in Phase 5 or 6 – falling under their list of TBA titles.
