“Black Panther” has added Academy Award-nominated actress Angela Bassett (who currently stars in “American Horror Story”) to its cast.
In the comics, Ramonda was T’Chaka’s second wife and one-time queen of Wakanda. Originally from South Africa, T’Chaka married Ramonda after his previous wife, N’Yami, died giving birth to T’Challa. She was abducted and held captive by a man named Anton Prestorius until T’Challa rescued her and welcomed her back to Wakanda.
Directed by Ryan Coogler (“Fruitvale Station,” “Creed”), “Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman in the title role alongside Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, and Florence Kasumba. The film arrives in theaters on February 16, 2018.
