Actress Letitia Wright received a head injury on the location of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the second instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Black Panther franchise. The star is presently undergoing treatment for her condition. No doubts that firstly injury seemed to be a minor one but as time passed the injury became severe. The incident took place in Boston while filming of Black Panther. A stunt equipment was to blame for the catastrophe. It was a pulley-type device that was employed to portray actors looking to be flying or hovering, or any action that would appear dangerous when the post-production cut was completed.
While having a small talk with the team member of Black Panther 2, he revealed that the actress underwent a small injury while shooting for the movie. After receiving this injury she was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Because her injuries was serious, she will not be able to return as quickly as we had hoped. As a consequence, despite the fact that it was initially said that shooting would not be hindered, Black Panther 2 has now been postponed till 2022. However, it has now been revealed that Letitia is now being cured for head as well as shoulder injury.
Obstructions in Black Panther Wakanda Forever Production
The filming of Black Panther was already struggling due to the sudden demise of the star, Chadwick Boseman. Despite this, Ryan Coogler, the filmmaker, and his Marvel studio crew are working hard to deliver the film that he could have been so pleased of. It’s said to be a gesture of appreciation to the departed icon. Post the expiry of Chadwick Boseman it was presumed that the film Black Panther 2 will now be revolving around the character of Shuri which will be played by Letitia Wright. But now due to this unpleasant accident of Letitia Wright, the release date of the film will be shifted further by the Disney.
The intended launch date has been pushed back from July 8th to November 11th, 2022. Irrespective of what happens with the film, we all wish the Black Panther actress a speedy and complete healing.
Filming of Black Panther 2 suffers a delay
As the injuries received by Letitia turned out to be severe than initially thought, the shooting of Black Panther will be put on a hold until the following year, that is 2022. This was announced by Kevin Feige and Louis D’Esposito, who are the executives of Marvel Productions. Wright was first believed to have suffered only “minimal wounds” while performing an action, and she has been on the mend since September. According to The Celebrity Report, Wright is still unvaccinated, that could make it very hard for her to enter the US from the UK because all non-citizens are required to show evidence of immunization.
Ryan Coogler will be directing the film and the sequel is believed to follow a similar pattern of the previous Black Panther film. We hope the entire team of Black Panther, face all the odds in their way of shooting, effectively. We also wish speedy recovery of Letitia Wright. Hope the actress gets well soon.
