I May Destroy You star Michaela Coel has opened up about playing a queer character in Black Panther 2. In the highly anticipated Marvel film, Coel is set to play the legendary LGBTQ+ hero Aneka.

A former leader of the Dora Milaje – the team of elite warrior women sworn to protect Wakanda – the popular character has been romantically linked in the comics with Ayo, who is played by Florence Kasumba in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In a recent interview with Vogue, the Chewing Gum star revealed that she joined the film due to her character being part of the LGBTQ+ community. “That sold me on the role, the fact that my character’s queer,” she explained. “I thought, ‘I like that.
