*Marvel’s “Black Panther” is already on track for a sequel, but could there also be plans for a spin-off?

Marvel president Kevin Feige says he’s “intrigued” by the idea of a trilogy centered around Dora Milaje warrior Okoye — played by Danai Gurira.

He says,

“I think there’s lots of potential. It’s a balance between leaving people wanting more and then giving them too much, but I would watch a movie about any of those characters you just named. I think Shuri’s astounding, and you’ll see much more of her in our universe. Okoye, I think I’d watch three action films just Okoye. I’m not saying we’re doing that, but I’m saying that we’re intrigued by them. Frankly, as I’ve said before, finishing these first 22 movies is really all we’re thinking about at this point.”

Fans believe an Okoye trilogy would be an excellent way to further explore stories and characters from Wakanda.

Gabrielle Union wants you to know that she’s more than just Dwyane Wade‘s wife.

The couple donated $200,000 for students in Chicago to attend the “March for Our Lives” rally later this month and when a Florida station tweeted the story, they described Union as simply being the “wife” of a baller.”… and she’s not happy about it.

When the local station wrote: “.@DwyaneWade, wife donates $200,000 to student-ran gun control rally.”…… Union fired back, “When they let you know what they think of you. I have a name.”

D-Wade chimed in, saying, “It’s Gabrielle Union-Wade to be exact.”

The station owned up the offense, writing, “We cannot edit a tweet; however, her name is in the headline of our article and we have re-written a tweet that includes her name. We are not deleting the previous one, since we are owning up to our mistake.”
