Angela Bassett teased new spoilers for the highly-anticipated Marvel Studios sequel titled Black Panther 2.
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther starred revered actress Angela Bassett in the role of Ramonda, the Queen Mother of Wakanda and advisor to her son, King T’Challa. In roughly two years, Angela Bassett will reprise her for a role for the sequel to the Academy Award-nominated Marvel Studios hit and she teased what to expect from the film during her recent appearance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
When asked how the sequel was coming along, Angela Bassett replied, “Going along, coming along. Amazing. Absolutely.” However, once Fallon noted that she told him Marvel had “decided to change the costume of Black Panther,” Angela Bassett replied, “Jimmy… I was telling you that in confidence! I cannot!” After Jimmy Fallon joked that he wanted to her in trouble, Angela Bassett was quick to say, “I know nothing!”
Written and directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther 2 is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 6, 2022. In the meantime, fans can re-watch the first film on all home media formats:
Marvel Studios “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
