Bassett, who plays Queen Ramonda, and T’Challa’s mom, told ET in July that there were many things that had to be changed and shifted following Boseman’s passing. “Thankfully, Ryan [Coogler] & Joe Robert Cole, they are just such masterful storytellers, that they’ve found an avenue into this world and hopefully it’ll be satisfying, I think for the fans, and it will also be honorable to our Chad,” she stated. “We love our king.”
