A “Black Panther” spinoff show for Disney+ may be on the horizon.
Danai Gurira, who stars as Okoye in Marvel’s “Black Panther” franchise, appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Friday where she “gently alluded” to a forthcoming series based on her character.
When asked if she can confirm reports of a spinoff show featuring the vibranium spear wielding head of the Wakandan armed forces, the actor tiptoed around an official answer.
Eventually caving in, she told Colbert, “I have been told that I can gently allude to this possibility.”
“So, I am gently alluding, just gently,” she quipped with a smile.
Colbert jokingly fired back, “You gently alluding is the Marvel version of a full monty. I can’t believe I got anything out of you.”
Gurira has been reportedly slated to take on the role of the fiercely loyal protector of Wakanda in the spinoff series since 2021, according to The Hollywood Reporter. However, Disney has not yet confirmed the show or announced a release date.
