Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Shuts Down Production Until 2022

Wakanda Forever is the upcoming sequel to Black Panther. It was recently delayed. Letitia Wright, a ctor who plays TChalla's genius sister Shuri, was previously reported as having a vocal antiCOVID stance on set. However, she sustained a serious injury during filming, which was severe enough to force everything to be halted until 2021.


Wright was injured while shooting a sequence that involved a stunt rig in Boston in late August. Marvel Studios claimed that the injury would not affect production at the time. But here we are. Wright is now in London for treatment, and the production continued shooting around her characters as best they could over the past two months. The hiatus will start on Thanksgiving week and last through the remainder of the year. It is planned to reconfigure the shoot in the early 2022.

Wright's representative said that Wright has been in London recovering from injuries sustained on Black Panther 2 and that she is looking forward to returning early in 2022. Letitia asks for your prayers.

Marvel stated that the film's release date should not be delayed due to the news. Ryan Coogler will direct the sequel to Superheroes. It will also feature Riri Williams (aka Ironheart), a new MCU mainstay, played by Dominique Thorne. There is also a possibility of a spinoff series for Okoye, Danai Guiras breakout role.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be released in theaters November 11, 2022.
