Danusia Samal Confirmed For Section 9 In ‘Ghost In The Shell’; Is She Playing Maven?

Nov 14, 2016


It doesn’t look like Scarlett Johansson’s Major will be the only female member of the kick-ass Section 9 team. The first Ghost In The Shell trailer has confirmed that actress Danusia Samal will also be playing a key role in Section 9, as she is spotted in the the briefing room sequence along other with other confirmed members.


It’ll be interesting to find out who she’s playing as the only other female character that I’m aware of is South African member Maven, who was created for the video game Ghost In The Shell: First Assault.

Maven is an expert on guerilla warfare and topgraphy, stemming from her time in the jungles of South Africa. She first came to Chief Aramaki’s attention during an operation in which she single-handedly held of an insurgent attack after her entire squad was killed. Since then, she has been working for Section 9, where she has proven both resourceful and deadly.

Directed by Rupert Sanders the film’s cast includes Scarlett Johansson, Michael Pitt, Takeshi Kitano, Pilou Asbaek, Chin Han, Rila Fukushima, Kaori Momoi, Lasarus Ratuere, Yutaka Izumihara, Tawanda Manyimo, Tricky, Danusia Samal, Juliette Bincohe, Michael Wincott, Joseph Naufahu, Chris Obi, Peter Ferdinado, Xavier Horan, and Ander Ng.
