Meet Akosia Sabet, the Ghanaian who plays the goddess Bast in Thor Love and Thunder

New images from the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Thor Love and Thunder just gave us a cameo of an Easter egg. The photos from the Taika Waititi film made its way online showing gods from the MCU in assembly. Perhaps, meeting to address the problem of the movie’s listed antagonist Gorr, played by Christian Bale.

The image shows Natalie Portman (Mighty Thor) and Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) and the popular Black Panther goddess Bast played by the newly casted Akosia Sabet.

Akosia Sabet is set to portray Bast the god worshipped by Wakandans in Black Panther.
