Black Panther Sequel Filming Suspended after Letitia Wright Injury

The filming of the sequel to Marvel’s Black Panther is being paused to allow star Letitia Wright to heal from an on-set injury sustained in August.

Wright portrayed Shuri in the critically acclaimed 2018 film Black Panther, which is set in the mythical African kingdom of Wakanda, which is highly sophisticated yet secretive.

The film, which has a largely black ensemble, became a cultural landmark, grossing $1.3 billion and earning an Oscar nomination for best picture.

In late August, Wright was hurt while filming a stunt sequence in Boston.

Variety and Hollywood Insider claimed at the time that she was anticipated to recuperate quickly enough for the production schedule to continue uninterrupted.

More information regarding the injuries has not been made public, however, it was first regarded as mild.

After Chadwick Boseman, who played the main character in the original film, died of cancer in 2020, Wright’s character is set to assume a greater part in the sequel.

The film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set to be released on November 11, 2022.
