Here’s what Mikey Sutton over at Geekosity had to say about the Black Panther spinoff series focusing on the Dora Milaje:
The Dora Milaje, Wakanda’s all-female special forces from Black Panther, are being developed to have their own Disney Plus series. Sources indicate they are among the Marvel projects Black Panther co-writer/director Ryan Coogler has lined up for the streamer. Led by Okoye (Danai Gurira), the Dora Milaje are tough, elite female bodyguards. They were among the highlights of Black Panther. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige saw their commercial potential in the film as a possible spin-off.
