Academy Award nominee Angela Bassett has signed on to play Ramonda, mother of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), in Marvel’s Black Panther. Bassett is another stellar addition to a cast that already includes Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, and Florence Kasumba. Director Ryan Coogler has a surplus of talent to deliver what is shaping up to be one of the best Marvel movies ever.

Black Panther begins production early next year for a February 16, 2018 release.
