Angela Bassett Joins Black Panther

The cast of Black Panther has just gotten bigger, better and BLACKER!

Legendary actress Angela Bassett has joined the cast of ‘Black Panther’ as the main character’s mother reports Variety:

Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o and “The Walking Dead’s” Danai Gurira are also part of the ensemble cast. “Creed” helmer Ryan Coogler will direct.

Boseman will play T’Challa, the prince of the African nation of Wakanda, who must take over the throne after his father’s murder. Marvel unveiled the character in “Captain America: Civil War” last May and his standalone film hits theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.

Production is expected to start in the first quarter of 2017.
