Everyone’s favorite walker slayer and Dora Milaje is eyeing two major motion pictures franchises. Danai Gurira has her eyes set on some juicy roles that will have her fans thrilled! Apparently, Guirira loves genre films after already having delivered solid roles in ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Black Panther.’ Now wants to check out some kaiju up close and boldly go where no woman has gone before. That’s right folks, Gurira is in early talks to join ‘Godzilla vs. Kong‘ and beam aboard the next outing of ‘Star Trek‘ on the big screen.
In ‘Godzilla vs. Kong,’ which will see two legendary giant creatures battle it out, Gurira would be joining a cast that already contains the likes of Millie Bobby Brown and Julian Dennison.
As for ‘Star Trek’ it is said she is circling a role in the film which has S.J. Clarkson (‘Collateral’) directing as the first female director of a ‘Strek Trek’ movie.
With her time still divided between AMC and Marvel Studios, it is going to be tricky for her to fit both of these fantastic roles into her schedule and I hope she’s able to snag both of them! Gurira has beyond proven her excellent acting abilities at this point and being able to see her take on not one but two more genre roles is an exciting thought.
However, with ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ slated for a 2020 release that likely means we have a bit of a wait still before ‘Black Panther 2‘ drops.
Are you more excited for the prospect of seeing Danai Gurira in ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ or ‘Star Trek? Do you feel that the first role means that Marvel doesn’t have the next ‘Black Panther’ movie set for filming in the near future? Share your thoughts below!
