Things are moving right along for Marvel’s Black Panther. The movie wrapped filming last month, and is now in post-production. Cast members like Chadwick Boseman and Danai Gurira have spoken well of their time on the film through social media, and Angela Bassett, who is playing Queen Ramonda, shares those sentiments.
Bassett recently did a video interview with Toofab during which she spoke on the massive amount of excitement for the film:
"It seems like there’s a vast wide audience of people who are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Black Panther at the top of the new year. I had a fantastic time and no one’s gonna be disappointed."
She then spoke about the project giving her the opportunity to work with a talented and diverse cast:
"It is just a beautiful sight. It’s a lot of strength and balance and beauty and I’m just thrilled by getting to work with Danai and Lupita and actresses and brand new faces across the diaspora, it was beautifully cast. It’s going to be quite a sight and I think it’s going to be magnetic."
The actress also teased the possibility of her character getting to kick a** in the film:
"“You know, in some way. I don’t know if it’s the way you’d most expect but I certainly went into set every day with that on my mind: Kick plenty!”"
The excitement for Black Panther just keeps growing, as everything we’ve heard about the film from the cast, crew, and the press have been positive. All of this will likely to come to a head when the first trailer hits the web, and for many, that can’t come soon enough.
Black Panther hits theaters on February 16, 2018.
