Angela Bassett Joins Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ Cast

Marvel Studios Announced An Angela Bassett Black Panther Role In  the 2018 film

Award-winning actress, Angela Bassett is joining the cast of Marvel Studios’ forthcoming superhero film, Black Panther.   The longtime Hollywood actress and What’s Love Got To Do With It? star will be portraying a character named ‘Ramonda’, mother of T’Challa (Black Panther played by Chadwick Boseman).  The Angela Bassett Black Panther announcement is exciting news for fans who are already excited about the shamelessly black film.

Directed by Creed and Fruitvale Station filmmaker, Ryan Coogler, the film is based on the Marvel Comics superhero, ‘Black Panther’.  In the 1960s, writer, Stan Lee and book artist, Jack Kirby made history in the comic book world, introducing the ‘first African-American superhero in mainstream American comics’. ‘Black Panther’, also known as T’Challa, acts as the sovereign and protector of the fictional country in Africa, Wakanda—’known for its advanced technology and its deposits of the wonder metal known as vibranium’.

With Lee bringing the character to life through his words and Kirby giving the character its physical look, the ‘Black Panther’ instantly became every young child’s fictional favorite in that era.
