We’ve already been going bananas over Marvel’s Black Panther film. I mean not only is Ryan Coogler handling directorial duties but he also tagged Michael B. Jordan, Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o as his part of his talented squad.
Just when we thought the anticipation couldn’t gain anymore fuel, it was announced, today, that Angela Bassett has joined the cast!
Ah yeah – ah yeah!
The Academy-Award winning actress, who has been gaining attention as a fav on American Horror Story, is slated to play Ramonda, T’Challa’s (Black Panther) mother.
