‘Black Panther’ Shuts Down Production as Letitia Wright Recovers From On-Set Injury

Disney reportedly has paused the production of the highly anticipated Black Panther sequel, Wakanda Forever, due to the severity of the injury Letitia Wright sustained on set.

According to The Hollywood Reportershe was “injured in late August while the film was shooting a sequence involving a stunt rig on-location in Boston. At the time, Marvel Studios said Wright’s injury would ultimately not impact the shooting schedule of the film.”

“After the injury, Wright left for London, where the star has been since, while the production shot around her character, Shuri, the sister of Black Panther T’Challa,” the report added.

For the past two months, the filming has mostly been done in Atlanta and director Ryan Coogler is said to have shot all footage that his crew is able to without Wright.

Now, the production is taking the hiatus and hope for an early 2022 restart. The shutdown is expected to begin the week of Thanksgiving.

“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 in a statement.
