Angela Bassett praises ‘Black Panther’ as ‘very rewarding’ and can’t wait to see more of ‘Avengers Infinity War’

During Angela Bassett’s appearannce on a Television Critics Association panel for new her Fox drama 9-1-1, she spoke with reporters further and /Film asked her about her experience on the film Black Panther.

“It’s got the big [feeling] but yet it doesn’t feel out of control,” Bassett said. “It still feels like we’re making a good movie. It just happens to be huge, with Forest Whitaker here, working with young actors Daniel Kaluuya, Lupita [Nyong’o], Danai [Gurira], Isaach De Bankole. It’s been very rewarding.”

Bassett plays Ramonda, Wakandan royalty, alongside Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa and Michael B. Jordan as Kilmonger.

The resume of this star speaks for itself, but Bassett went on about the Black Panther film.

“To be a part of one of these big, major goliath movies, just huge, but Black Panther, it being the first black superhero, it being helmed by a young energetic 29-year-old, Ryan Coogler and a lot of immensely talented like the costume designer Ruth Carter or Hannah Beachler, the production designer, or the producers. The enthusiasm for it months before it happens, that’s something that I appreciate.”

Signing on to the Marvel universe could potentially mean more films beyond the Black Panther franchise.

Rowanda reportedly appears in Avengers: Infinity War too. Bassett herself is still waiting to see the finished film.

“I’ve only seen a little ADR footage which I loved, just whets my appetite to see more so I can’t wait,” she said.

T’Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman (42, Get On Up) was introduced in Captain America: Civil War. T’Challa is struggling to cope with the loss of his father T’Chaka, but is determined to live up to his great legacy. When Wakanda finds herself beset by two enemies intent on the nation’s downfall, Black Panther must use his new suit and heightened strength, speed and senses to defend Wakanda and the rest of the world.
