Black Panther: Wakanda Forever shuts down production due to Letitia Wright’s injury
Wright will reprise her role as Shuri, sister of Black Panther T'Challa (late Chadwick Boseman)
The highly anticipated Black Panther: Wakanda Forever's production has hit a roadblock. The shoot of the Black Panther sequel will be temporarily shutting down production due to the injuries that star Letitia Wright sustained earlier this year. It was reported back in August that Wright was shooting a sequence involving a stunt rig, in Boston. Back then, it was said that the injuries were minor and would not affect the shoot.
After getting discharged from the hospital, Wright left for London, where she has been ever since. But, the filming continued in Atlanta where the primary shooting of the film had taken place for the last two months. Writer-director, Ryan Coogler, is said to have shot all the footage possible without Wright, till now. And now they are forced to put the filming on hold.
Wright will reprise her role as Shuri, sister of Black Panther T'Challa (late Chadwick Boseman). Shuri became one of the most-liked characters in a Marvel film, post the 2018 blockbuster. The film went on to win three Oscars.
