Black Panther may be a standalone superhero film for Marvel Studios, but more than any other standalone film to date, it also looks to be highlighting a lot of the backup players during its runtime. Among these backup players are Okoye, Nakia, Shuri, and Ramonda.

Of course, it’s easy to see, based on this spot alone, that in addition to being a step forward in terms of racial diversity in film, Black Panther is focusing heavily on the female presence of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is something that’s been needed for some time.

Making up these characters are members of the Dora Milaje, women who pledge their lives to the security of Wakanda. Members of this organization include Okoye (played by Danai Guirira) and Nakia (played by Lupita Nyong’o. As we already saw in the Avengers: Infinity War trailer, we know that Wakanda and the Dora Milaje will have a role in the future of the MCU, so it makes sense they’d be setting them up for future exposure as well.

The synopsis for Black Panther is below:

“After the death of his father, T’Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king — and as Black Panther — gets tested when he’s drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.”
