Here’s your last warning before a major spoiler comes!
Angela revealed that at first she was not in agreement with her character’s death and that she talked about it with director Ryan Coogler.
“I objected,” she told IndieWire. “Yeah, I was like, ‘Ryan, what are you doing? Why? You will rue the day! You will rue the demise of [Ramonda]. People are gonna be so upset.’”
She also revealed how Ryan responded to her and that it was calming. “‘He was like, ‘Angela, I know, I know, but look, to die is not really to die in this world. It doesn’t really have to mean that,’” she recalled.
“All kinds of crazy things happen,” she added, in reference to the various stars who have returned to their roles.
