Angela Bassett delivers a regal performance as the grieving monarch of Wakanda in the sequel to Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther.

In the wake of King T’Challa’s death, Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M’Baku and Okoye fight to protect their nation – and its precious resource – from intervening world powers. When an unexpected challenger emerges, they enlist the help of War Dog Nakia and Everett Ross in a quest that will ultimately forge a new path for Wakanda and its people.

Curator’s note

Angela Bassett is all kinds of regal reprising the role of Queen Ramonda in the second of Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther films. Her imposing presence as the monarch of Wakanda is made vulnerable by grief for her lost son, and anxiety for her daughter who is derailing with anger and self-blame.

Bassett’s magisterial disposition on screen is enhanced by her own legendary status as a trailblazer who broke down barriers for black female performers. Among her many achievements, Bassett is also the first Marvel Cinematic Universe star to be nominated for an acting Oscar, which begs the question: why is this only her second nomination since her breakout role in 1993 as Tina Turner in What’s Love Got to Do with It?
