Danai Gurira, known to fans of "The Walking Dead" as the fiercely determined Michonne, will join the cast of Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War," filming in Atlanta this summer.
Her imdb page doesn't list the role yet but Deadline suggests she'll play Okoye, her character in Marvel's "Black Panther." That seems like a good guess, as "Black Panther" star Chadwick Boseman reprises his character for the Avengers movie. A fourth Avengers movie, as yet untitled, will film concurrently; the two projects are headquartered at Pinewood Studios with a combined budget of around $1 billion.
Gurira also plays Afeni Shakur in Atlanta-filmed "All Eyez On Me," about late rapper Tupac Shakur.
