Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, was put on hold due to star Letitia Wright sustaining an on-set injury, after recovering in England, she is back in Atlanta to wrap production.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been plauged with several set-backs. The first issues came up with COVID-19 shutting production down, and then a longer hiatus took place when star Letitia Wright was injured on set. Production was initially to have restarted last Monday, but was delayed due to several cast and crew, Lupita Nyong’o among them, testing positive for COVID-19. Shooting is due to resume in Atlanta next week on the Ryan Coogler-directed picture for what sources say will be about a four-week period.
The set-back at this point does not affect the movies set release date which is Nov. 11, 2022. Wakanda Forever is one of three Marvel movies due out this year, including Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 6) and Thor: Love and Thunder(July 8). Additionally, Coogler and Marvel are also developing a Disney+ spinoff set in the fictional country of Wakanda that will feature actor Danai Gurira.
