Wednesday on "The Talk" Angela Bassett reveals how the cast and crew of "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" honored their late co-star Chadwick Boseman on the set. "Before we began filming, we just all gathered...and just spoke of him, spoke of our experiences, the words that he would say to us, and the way that he would carry himself. And it was just, it was really pretty beautiful, and humbling and inspirational." Bassett adds, "It was something, you know, I'd never seen done before, but that's the imprint, the impact that he made on each and every one of us." On how she thinks the fans will respond without the recasting of Boseman's character, she adds, "No one replaces Chadwick. But I think the fans, they know their stuff too, so we have to bring it. We have to come correct...the producers have such a high standard and such a great deal of respect for 'Panther' and what we were able to do before, that we're not going to fall down. We're not going to sit down on our watch."
