The most badass woman in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ didn’t even throw a punch- SPOILER

I haven't seen this yet, but I couldn't resist...

Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, and Agent 13 are all super badass in Captain America: Civil War. But the most badass woman of all in the new Marvel movie is the one who didn’t dole out a single kick or punch.The full badassery of this character will hopefully be on display in a future MCU movie, but we know from comic book history that this woman has some serious fighting skills. I’m talking about the Dora Milaje.

The Dora Milaje are the Wakandan women who serve as Black Panther’s bodyguards, and we got a brief glimpse at one in Civil War. 

Now, there are a few possibilities for who this could be — Shuri, T’Challa’s sister (who has her own tenure as Black Panther in the comics) is one — but this woman certainly looks like she’d fit into the Dora Milaje. They’re recognizable for their often shaved heads and gold earrings. Sometimes they wear high heels and slinky dresses like the woman in this scene does, and sometimes they wear traditional Wakandan garb. The actress who shares this brief scene with Scarlett Johansson and Chadwick Boseman is Uganda-born actress Florence Kasumba, credited as “Security Chief.”

Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther film is set for a February 2018 release. We can hope to see more of the Dora Milaje in that movie — I’d bet even the Dora Milaje in action.
