Aaaaaaan and we’re back!
Letitia Wright, the actress who plays Shuri in this series, was injured in August 2021 while filming a scene involving a stunt cast on location in Boston. While the production team filmed as best they could without the star, they ended up shutting down while she continued her medical treatment at her home in London.
In light of Letitia’s injury, many online fans were disappointed in her commands performed on vaccinations. To further her point, she shared a link to a YouTube video last December that questioned whether people should be vaccinated.
She wrote on Twitter, “If you don’t fit the popular opinion. but ask questions and think for yourself… .you will be cancelled. You have every right to question what goes into your body and ask questions until you feel you are ready.”
Based on The Hollywood Reporter, her representative said she always plans to return to production even though COVID-19 vaccination is mandatory for all present in the workplace.
Wright made it clear that she never intended to upset anyone or sway anyone’s decisions, she was only interested in what was in it.
Not all news is bad for members of Wakanda Forever. Wright’s co-star Winston Duke is reportedly getting a raise for his extended role in the new film. Duke played M’Baku in the first Black Panther movie and Avengers: Endgame. The expansion came into play because of the untimely death of Chadwick Boseman during a long battle with colon cancer.
The cast, production staff, and others involved still have a lot of work to do before Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits theaters on November 11 this year. It has been moved once before, from July 8, 2022, so hopefully things will go right around this time.
