It’s currently unclear who Usman will play or how big his cameo will be, but MMA Fighting Confirmed news with additional sources after UFC Hall of Fame Daniel Cormier mentioned a role in UFC 277. My guess is he’ll be playing himself in a scene where someone from Wakanda ( possibly Danai Gurira’s Okoye) is participating in one of his battles. Wakanda recently opened up their borders, so maybe apart from a Starbucks or two, that could mean more opportunities for shogun Dora Milaje to engage in some entertaining skirmishes in the future. free time. In addition, Usman can also appear as a member of the Wakandan army. Given his physique and stature, he certainly looks like a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield as well as the octagon.
Usman’s addition to this movie makes him the latest combat sports athlete to join the MCU. Previously, UFC Walk of Fame Georges St.-Pierre appeared as Georges Batroc AKA Batroc the Leaper in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” and “What If.. .?”. Plus, Dave Bautista starred in James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” series after he achieved a worthy career in WWE. Honestly, it’s a little surprising that more and more MMA fighters and professional wrestlers aren’t getting into superhero movies because most of them have already seen the part. We’ll probably see many of them follow in the footsteps of The Rock, John Cena, Sasha Banks, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin as they hang up their shoes or gloves.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will hit theaters on November 11, 2022.
