AMERICAN HORROR STORY And GREEN LANTERN Star Angela Bassett Joins Marvel's BLACK PANTHER

The incredible cast of Black Panther has added yet another big name as Academy Award nominated actress Angela Bassett is the latest star to make the leap from the DC to Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios may have put together their best cast yet for Ryan Coogler's (Creed) Black Panther, and that's a statement backed up by the latest addition to the highly anticipated 2018 release. That is Angela Bassett, an actress who many of you will remember for playing the villainous Amanda Waller in Green Lantern. She's also known for American Horror Story and What's Love Got to Do with It

The latter landed Bassett an Academy Award nomination, but in Black Panther, she will play Ramonda, the mother of Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa. No additional details have been revealed, but after what happened to T'Chaka in Captain America: Civil War, this will probably be a pretty significant role. 

The cast of Black Panther also includes Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, and Florence Kasumba. Shooting is expected to begin next year ahead of the movie's release on February 16th, 2018. What do you think about this latest addition?
