Production on ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever 2’ resumes after star actress, Letitia Wright, recovered from injuries she sustained last year. Shooting resumes in Atlanta next week for a four-week shoot.
The actress, 28, plays Wright plays Shuri, the sister of King T’Challa, who provides the Black Panther and his allies with state-of-the-art Wakandan technology.
She injured herself performing a stunt on location in Boston. The Black Panther 2 team filmed as much as they could without the star but had to shut down in late November of last year, The Wrap reports.
At the time of Wright’s injury, the studio said the injury wouldn’t impact the production schedule.
“Letitia has been recovering in London since September from injuries sustained on the set of Black Panther 2 and is looking forward to returning to work early 2022,” a representative for Wright said a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “Letitia kindly asks that you keep her in your prayers.”
Wright will return along with fellow “Black Panther” stars Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba and Angela Bassett.
The death of Chadwick Boseman, who played T’Challa in four Marvel films, including “Black Panther,” will be addressed as Marvel has decided not to recast his character.
The release date stays the same, as “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is still set for release on November 11, 2022.
Marvel had no comment.
