Apparently, even the technologically advanced nation of Wakanda enjoys the simple pleasures of a Starbucks Frappuccino.
In the latest scene from Avengers: Infinity War, Danai Gurira's Okoye confides to Wakandan King T'Challa that when the he formally opened the nation's borders, she hoped they would host more amenable foreign interests such as the Olympics or Starbucks. Instead, the duo finds themselves welcoming the Avengers to their country to make their last stand against the coming might of Thanos.
Head of the Dora Milaje, the Wakandan Royal Guard, Okoye played a pivotal earlier this year in Black Panther where she helped T'Challa defend the throne from that film's villain, Erik Killmonger. During the mid-credits scene for the record-breaking MCU movie, T'Challa pledges to open the normally reclusive African nation to the outside world.
Despite significant portions of Infinity War taking place in Wakanda, with many of Black Panther's supporting cast returning, star Chadwick Boseman has assured fans that the Avengers sequel is not "Black Panther 1.5 or Black Panther 2" but rather that the early anticipated blockbuster is very much "its own thing."
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston, and Josh Brolin.
