Lights! Camera! Wakanda! The production of Marvel’s Black Panther sequel has begun and will be completed soon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, after multiple delays, including COVID-19 infections and Letitia Wright’s onset injury, work on the film — dubbed Black Panther: Wakanda Forever — is ready to restart. The film is based on the Marvel comic book character Black Panther. According to the site, work on the highly anticipated sequel was originally scheduled to begin earlier this month, but was postponed when many members of the cast and crew tested positive for COVID-19. (Among those present was actress Lupita Nyong’o.)

Black Panther sequel’s production will now resume this week, according to the timetable. According to THR’s sources, the Ryan Coogler-directed picture has “about four weeks” of shooting remaining to complete. Also confirmed to the source by insiders is that the film’s release date, which is presently scheduled for November 11, 2022, would not be affected. The picture was originally slated to be released on July 8, 2022, but Disney rescheduled the release date after reorganizing their release calendar last year. The second installment of the ‘Black Panther’ film franchise will begin production next week.
She was wounded onset in August and has been resting at her home in London since then. Letitia Wright is most known for her role as Shuri, the sister of Black Panther T’Challa in the Marvel films. In November, work on ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ came to a halt after the cast and crew had completed as much as they could without Wright, and the actress is expected back on set next week when the shooting starts, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Production on the Ryan Coogler-directed film was initially scheduled to resume last week in Atlanta, but it was put on hold when several cast members, including Lupita Nyong’o, tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.
Due to the untimely death of Chadwick Boseman (who portrayed Black Panther) in 2020, after a hidden cancer fight, Wright’s Shuri has been promoted to the role of the title character in the sequel.
Wright’s injuries had previously been described as “minimal,” and her co-star Angela Bassett said in September that Wright had made a “rapid recovery” after being hospitalized. Angela, who portrays Ramonda, the mother of Shuri, the Princess of Wakanda, shared her thoughts about her co-star with ‘Entertainment Tonight,’ saying: “A little bit of a fall was experienced, but it wasn’t too awful. Obviously, anything like this is going to make you feel a bit uneasy, but she’s just a little, small, diminutive thing. She, on the other hand, is well and ready to leave.”
Together with Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, and Florence Kasumba, the duo will reprise their respective roles in the next film.
Furthermore, Angela said that “every day” on the set is like a “love fest” for the late Boseman. She expressed herself as follows: “That is something we are looking forward to. Of course, we still have a little, you know, a little, you know, a little, you know, a little something in our hearts, of course. As a result, every day is a monument to and a celebration of our beloved [Chadwick].”
