Black Panther Angela Bassett Chadwick Boseman

As with any sprawling movie franchise, there are definitely areas in the Marvel Cinematic Universe which could be improved, but Marvel's casting is certainly not one of them as they almost always knock it out of the park. Expected to get underway early next year, Ryan Coogler's upcoming BLACK PANTHER is certainly no exception to Marvel's casting excellence and they've just made another great addition to their cast.

Angela Bassett (American Horror Story) has joined up with BLACK PANTHER and will play the role of Ramonda, mother to Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa. We still don't know exactly where Black Panther's first solo-adventure will take us, but we can be sure that its characters are in good hands. In addition to Chadwick Boseman, BLACK PANTHER also stars Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Winston Duke as M'Baka, Florence Kasumba as Ayo and Forest Whitaker as Zuri. Daniel Kaluuya and Danai Gurira will also star. Our biggest hint at the plot of BLACK PANTHER came from Lupita Nyong'o at Comic-Con earlier this year when she said that the film will see Black Panther’s leadership "threatened by two foes who come together, and so Black Panther gets the help of the C.I.A. and the Dora Milaje to try and defeat the enemy."

BLACK PANTHER is set for a February 16, 2018 release.

Would love to see Marvel reach out to Denzel at this point.

If that were the case, I think I'd like to see them invest in Denzel as the next big bad to span across several movies... maybe those Doctor Doom rumors? Norman Osborne in a new direction? can't think of one I really LOVE, but I think i'd rather see him tear it up as a bad guy

I agree thinking that he would make for an excellent villain across multiple films. But to be honest, for some reason I see him being better utilized in the DCEU or his style is perhaps more fitting to DC.
