Ahead of Black Panther‘s upcoming home release, a deleted scene has surfaced.
The scene features Okoye (Danai Gurira) and W’Kabi (Daniel Kaluuya), who have a clash, and we find out that they are married!
The scene takes place after T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) fell off of a cliff to his death at the hands of his first cousin, Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). Director Ryan Coogler, who introduces the scene, says that this was supposed to introduce the fact that the Dora Milaje leader and Border Tribe head were married but had different allegiances.
Okoye is angry that W’Kabi let Killmonger in the tribal room, but W’Kabi is still upset that T’Challa didn’t get justice by killing Klaue.
Coogler says, as a director, he was proud of the scene, but it just couldn’t make it into the confinement of the film.
Watch the scene below:
Black Panther will be available for digital download on May 8.
