As if the cast that already has been announced wasnt loaded enough this here is definitely putting it over the top. Angela Bassett has joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther. She will play Ramonda, the mother of T’Challa, aka Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in the Marvel mythology.
The Oscar nominee joins Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke and Florence Kasumba in the cast. The superhero made his debut in Disney’s Marvel Universe movies this summer in Captain America: Civil War.
In the comic series, Ramonda was the stepmother to T’Challa, whose actual mother died while giving birth to him. Ramonda was thought to have run away, but it was later discovered she had been kidnapped.
Black Panther, directed by Ryan Coogler, hits theaters February 16, 2018. Coogler and Joe Robert Cole are writing the script.
Bassett has been busy in Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story anthology series (she was Emmy nominated for roles in 2014 and 2015). She also made her directorial debut with Lifetime’s Whitney Houston biopic Whitney last year.
