경고: 이 포스팅은 스포일러를 포함하고 있습니다 흑표범: 와칸다 포에버, which is now playing in theaters.
안젤라 바셋 pushed back against her 흑표범 character’s fate.
오스카 후보, 64, plays Queen Ramonda in the Marvel movies, and in the new sequel 와칸다 포에버, the grieving matriarch dies at the hand of villain Namor (Tenoch Huerta) while she saves Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne). Her death plays a pivotal moment in the story as her daughter Princess Shuri (레티시아 라이트) rises to become a leader in the wake of another tragedy for the Wakandan royal family.
Bassett told 인디와이어 that when she learned her character dies in the sequel, she talked with director Ryan Coogler about why it might be a regrettable twist.
“I objected. 나는 같았다, ‘Ryan, 뭐하세요? 왜? You will rue the day! You will rue the demise of [Ramonda]. People are gonna be so upset,’ ” 그녀가 말했다. “그는 같았다, ‘Angela, 알아요, 알아요, but look, to die is not really to die in this world. It doesn’t really have to mean that.’ ”
About possibly returning in future Marvel movies, 그녀는 덧붙였다, “All kinds of crazy things happen.”

The actress also explained why she was drawn to Queen Ramonda and her storyline.
“I try to be all the way vulnerable, but there’s still a fire. I want women to rise and fight back,” said Bassett. “It’s a mother’s fierce love for her family. It’s even in times of grief, never forgetting who you are, where you’re from. ‘Don’t forget always the old ways. Take the now and take something from the past.’ That sisters are leaders and protectors, it’s all of that that’s in there, and it’s brilliant.”
“When Chadwick died, we were in isolation in a way that was new to all of us. And we didn’t have the opportunity to come together to process it,” 그녀가 말했다. “And so coming back to Wakanda was kind of that delayed moment of a community that lost him, coming back together.”
“I was relieved personally that I didn’t have to pretend that I wasn’t going through grief and I could bring my grief to work and put it to good use,” continued Nyong’o, 39. “And I was actually eager to get back on set because I knew that that set would be populated with people who knew what I was going through. Who had the empathy, the sympathy, and were themselves going through it.”
