A brief look at all of the dope, strong women Danai Gurira will play between this year and beyond.
Afeni Shakur – 2017
Afeni Shakur is the epitome of a strong, Black woman who also happens to be a super kickass mom. Not only did she have an interesting life, but she's been a driving force in keeping Tupac's legacy alive after his fatal death.
We have not doubt that Danai will rise to the occasion as she has before with other powerful characters.
Michonne – 2017/2018
First appearing in the Season 2 "Beside by the Fire" episode of The Walking Dead, Danai's character Michonne has been ripping heads ever since. Michonne is the deep mocha, samurai sword-wielding, rutheless badass that we all wish we could be in everyday life.
Okoye – 2018
In the Marvel Comics universe, Okoye is a fierce warrior that is one of "The Adored Ones" — Black Panther's deadliest bodyguards in Wakanda.
Danai has proven that she's not above cutting someone and we're sure it won't change with her Black Panther role.
Unknown 'Avengers: Infinity War' Character – 2018
While there hasn't been an official release for the name of the character Danai will play in Avengers: Infinity War, we suspect that her character Okoye will be reprised. Hopefully her character will be strong enough to seep into the Avengers franchise.
