Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will shut down production indefinitely while actor Letitia Wright recovers from an injury that took place on set back in August. Production will reportedly temporarily pause on the film starting the week of Thanksgiving and start back up in early 2022.
Wright is said to be still recovering from injuries sustained two months ago while performing a stunt while filming on location in Boston. At the time of the injury, Marvel Studios thought that it would ultimately not impact the shooting schedule of the film and filming mostly continued in Atlanta since Wright was injured.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is directed by Ryan Coogler. Previous cast confirmed to return include Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya and Florence Kasumba.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is scheduled to release in theaters on November 11, 2022.
