Black Panther 2 Production Welcomes Letitia Wright Back on Set
Actress Letitia Wright has resumed filming on the Black Panther sequel, almost five months after being injured when a stunt went wrong.
The British star, who plays Shuri, was said at the time of the accident in August to have suffered minor injuries.
But Marvel’s bosses later said she turned out to have sustained “a critical shoulder fracture and a concussion with severe side effects” and filming on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was suspended in November creating speculation that her stance on mandated vaccinations was the true cause of the delays, and outlets like CBR demanding she be replaced on the Marvel sequel for not giving her full-throated endorsement of forced vaccinations of emergency use authorized drugs.
A spokesperson for the star said she has now recovered and production has resumed.
Wright’s Princess of Wakanda character is expected to play a bigger part in the blockbuster’s sequel. The late Chadwick Boseman led the the 2018 film and his role has not been re-cast following his death in 2020.
