The Marvel Cinematic Universe is growing faster than it ever has before, with so many new characters bringing a ton of new stories to tell. Disney+ has given the cinematic universe a whole new playing field to expand and develop more projects with some of the most beloved characters in comics. Smaller characters with overflowing, with potential such as Agatha Harkness, and even Okoye, are scoring solo projects that’ll be able to explore their characters better than their mothership projects were ever able to.
Back in May, we learned that actress Danai Gurira would reprise her role as Okoye, leader of the Dora Milaje, for her very own solo project. It was reported that this series would be separate from the previously announced Wakanda project from Ryan Coogler, most likely diving into Okoye’s origins and upbringing as she trained and climbed the ranks of the Dora. In a new report from GWW, the site has revealed that the spin-off series is currently set to begin production sometime in 2023 alongside projects like Fantastic Four, Nova, and the highly anticipated sequel to Shang-Chi and the Legend of The Ten Rings.
The project is currently believed to be a streaming series on Disney+, yet another series in the ever-expanding slate that will hit the streaming service. There isn’t much known about the project aside from Gurira reprising her role and Ryan Coogler most likely developing it as part of his five-year overall deal between his production company, Proximity Media, and Disney.
