I’m still reeling over my first official Marvel Press junket for Black Panter in LA last month, and today, I’m here to share the very first interview with you all! Danai Gurira (Okoye) and Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia) are two of the lovely leading ladies who we were able to sit down with and discuss everything from their thought of women led guards and being a love interest of the king. Here’s what they had to say.
I specifically asked about the casino fight scene that the trailers have been teasing us with for several weeks, because I was ENTHRALLED with the red dress that Okoye wears. The choreography that goes into it also fascinated me, and hearing that they did it in ONE TAKE took the cake. Read more below.
Many thanks to Danai and Lupita for sitting with us to answer some of our questions, and we look forward to seeing the great success of Black Panther when it hits theaters February 16!
