‘An Oscar for a Popcorn Movie?’: Angela Bassett Hopes to Get an Oscar Nomination for Black Panther 2 Splits Fans, Says Robert Downey Jr. Should Have Won Sooner

If there’s one death in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that preceded an actor’s actual death, it’s the death of T’Challa at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. He eventually comes back to life after Thanos’ instantaneous effect is reversed, but is later confirmed in Black Panther: Wakanda forever‘s synopsis that he finally died.

King T’Challa’s death remained ambiguous, and that was something that the Wakanda Kingdom wasn’t able to handle very well. Black Panther’s mourner, who is also her son in the film, is Angela Bassett’s Ramonda, and the actress is being praised for stealing the show in Wakanda forever.
