Letitia Wright has returned to wrap up filming on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever after suffering a stunt accident that left her with a fractured shoulder and concussion.
BBC reports that Wright is heading to Atlanta, Georgia, where Black Panther 2 is filming, to complete her scenes with Shuri, T’challa’s sister. Filming is still ongoing on the film, but production halted in November 2021 due to being unable to proceed without Wright.

Details of Wright’s accident were initially described as a minor stunt accident, but a letter from Marvel’s Kevin Feige revealed that Wright’s accident was more serious than originally anticipated. There has also been speculation as Wright had previously expressed views on Covid vaccines.
Production on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has now fully resumed, according to a spokesperson, although plot details are closely guarded.
It’s unclear how Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will continue following the death of star Chadwick Boseman in 2020. The Hollywood Reporter says both Wright and M’Baku actor Winston Duke will have expanded roles in the sequel and that Duke has “negotiated a hefty raise for his return to Black Panther.”[.]”
Scheduled to premiere on November 11, 2022, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is one of Marvel’s many MCU offerings for the year. Other films slated for release in 2022 include Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in May and Thor: Love and Thunder in July.
