The 62-year-old actress plays Queen Ramonda in the Marvel franchise and she has revealed that the script has undergone numerous adaptations since it was first drafted.
She said: ‘I don’t know what it’s going to look like at all. There have been about five incarnations of the script and I hear there’s one more to come.”
Angela and the other cast members are determined to make sure the upcoming superhero movie pays tribute to their former co-star Chadwick Boseman, who played the titular character in the first Black Panther movie before his death last year.
She told Entertainment Tonight: “Obviously, when our dear king went to victory, a lot of things had to be shifted and changed, so luckily, Ryan [Coogler] and Joe Robert Cole, they are just such masterful storytellers that they have found their way into this world and hopefully it will be satisfying, I think, for the fans and it will be honorable for our Chad. We love our king.’
