Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the sequel to Black Panther in the MCU, has filming completely stopped until further notice for the injuries suffered by one of its main protagonists, the actress Letitia Wright, who returns to interpret Shuri in fiction. This is how the media collects it exclusively The Hollywood Reporter, ensuring that Wright is still recovering from a back injury sustained while filming in Boston last August.
Black Panther Wakanda Forever stops filming
And it is that as it was already known since the end of this summer, the actress Letitia Wright injured her back while filming an action scene in Boston, being hospitalized. Since then, the production has advanced in scenes in which the actress did not participate, although after two months of shooting at half throttle, it has finally been decided to stop filming waiting for Wright to recover totally in the city of London.
“Letitia has been recovering in London since September from injuries sustained on the set of Black Panther 2 and is looking forward to getting back to work at early 2022. Letitia kindly asks that they keep her in their prayers, ”shared a representative of the actress. Thus, Wright’s environment sets a date for his return to work, which would be in early 2022.
Of course, the stoppage of filming by Letitia Wright gives us a hint that Shuri will have a great starring role in the film; Will it be the new Black Panther as some rumors claimed long ago? This small stop in production should not cause a big setback to the UCM calendar either, since recently the film was already delayed from July 8, 2022 to November 11, 2022.
