Angela Bassett joins Black Panther

It’s almost as if the cast of Marvel’s Black Panther is too good to be true. Then there’s a report that says not only is it true, it’s getting better as we speak. The film, which already stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, and Florence Kasumba, will now add Angela Bassett (American Horror Story) to the cast. More on the story below.

Bassett will play as Ramonda, mother of T’Challa, aka Black Panther, who was first introduced in Captain America: Civil War. From what we know, Black Panther will not be an origins film, but will introduce us to Wakanda. According to Nyong’o, the film will see two villains vying for the Wakandian throne after the assassination of T’Challa’s father. Jordan will play the villainous Erik Killmonger while Duke as villain M’Baku (a.k.a. Man-Ape). It’s still not clear if Andy Serkis will reemerge as Ulysses Klaue, but considering the two have a history, let’s not close the door on that just yet.

Bassett is best known for her current role on American Horror Story. She has appeared in Olympus Has Fallen, Boyz in the Hood, Bojack Horseman, and was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in What’s Love Got To Do With It. With such a talented cast, one has to hope that Bassett’s role as T’Challa’s mother is significant and not just a glorified cameo role.

Nyong’o and Gurira will play as Dora Milaje members Nakia and Okoye, respectively. Kasumba will reprise her Captain America: Civil War role as Dora Milaje member Ayo. Whitaker will play Zuri, an elder stateman in Wakanda

Written by Coogler and Joe Robert Cole, Black Panther hits theaters on in theaters on February 16, 2018.
