New star of the franchise, Letitia Wright hurt herself this summer on the set of Wakanda Forever. And she is still not recovered.
A full year before its theatrical release, Black panther 2 has to face a small setback. The production of Wakanda Forever will close due to an injury on the set.
Letitia wright, who plays Shuri, T’Challa’s little sister, suffered an unknown incident in late August in Boston, reports The Hollywood Reporter. Filming continued without her, filming the sequences where she was not needed. But his presence is now required for the rest of the shoot. Jump that she is obviously still not able to hold her place!
For this reason, production will be put on hold for almost two months. The team will be able to leave to celebrate Thanksgiving with the family quietly and will not return to the set until after the end of the year holidays. Resumption of filming expected in early 2022, if we are to believe THR, which does not specify the nature of the injury of Letitia wright.

We just know that she hurt herself following a stunt sequence at the end of the summer. She had to be hospitalized, then she returned to rest at her home in London. She is obviously not quite recovered yet.
However, impossible to finish the film without her since Shuri will take over from T’Challa and will be the superstar of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, after the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman last year. Black panther 2 is due out on November 9, 2022 in theaters in France.
