Marvel President ‘Intrigued’ by Idea of ‘Black Panther’s’ Okoye Landing Her Own Trilogy

While a blind man could see Black Panther would receive the sequel treatment, could Wakandan warrior Okoye, played by Danai Gurira, be landing her own series of films too?

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is reportedly kicking around the idea, telling Entertainment Weekly, “Okoye, I think I’d watch three action films just Okoye.”

He immediately added, “I’m not saying we’re doing that, but I’m saying that we’re intrigued by them.”

Feige may not be 100% sold on that particular idea just yet, but did confirm the billion-dollar hit has had plans for a sequel since production.

“One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two,” he said. “There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther. We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one.”

Would you line up to see Okoye in her own Marvel flick?
