Plot details for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is currently unknown, with recurring co-writer / director Ryan Coogler having to make changes to his original plan following Chadwick Boseman’s death from colon cancer. Marvel and Coogler would choose not to reshuffle the role of T’Challa and continue with a new vision, and finally begin production on the film in late June 2021, with most of the original cast returning. Films continue, however Black Panther: Wakanda Forever still faces problems as the year draws to a close.
After it was announced that production had stopped earlier this month, Deadline confirms it Black Panther: Wakanda Forevers footage is officially shut down until January 2022. The report reveals that the production hiatus is coming as Wright needs more time to recover from her recent injury, which they have learned was more serious than previously thought when she sustained a fracture. shoulder and concussion. Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito and Nate Moore wrote the following note to the film’s team:
“When we end the holiday, we wanted to send a thank you and appreciation for the hard work from our entire cast and crew, as well as an update on timing. First of all, this project is unique and something we know the audience is eager to see. We could not be more excited to complete this film and share it with the world next year.Thank you for all you have done to make us this place.
Unfortunately, we have not reached this point without a few setbacks. Running a production on this scale in the middle of a pandemic is not an easy task and you have been diligent and professional throughout. In addition, as you all know, Letitia had a scary one accident on our set during a stunt back in August. It was a reminder of the importance of safety at all times in our work that we know you understand and are committed to. What we had initially thought were minor injuries turned out to be much more serious when Letitia suffered a critical shoulder fracture and a concussion with serious side effects. It has been a painful process and Letitia has been at home recovering with her doctors and support from the family.
We have adjusted our production schedule so she has the time she needs to heal, but there is only so much we can do without Shuri! We would also like to thank Letitia for everything she does to get back to the set – we know how much she loves this role, how hard it has been for her to be away, and how hard she works to recover so as fast as she probably can. We are anxiously awaiting her return and we know we will all come back stronger together.
Please be on the lookout for more information on your specific date of return to work. Right now, we are scheduled to resume filming – along with Letitia – in January 2022. We are all focused on finishing the film with excellence and honoring the memory of our dear brother Chadwick in the process. We are excited to share Black Panther: Wakanda Forever with the world, convinced that the challenges we have overcome together as a team will make the film even more effective. Take care of yourself and enjoy the holidays. “
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever‘s production has been turbulent since the loss of Boseman last year and has continued to struggle, especially with regard to Wright. The Emmy-nominated star was temporarily hospitalized two months after filming began with minor injuries, with production continuing to work around her, although reports later surfaced of Wright expressing anti-COVID-19 vaccination views on the set. Although she has shut down these allegations on social media, there are still reports that the film may be subject to further delays after the resumption date in January due to her reluctance to receive the vaccination.
The confirmation that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever shuts down filming until January 2022 to allow Wright to recover, pointing in the direction of the actress taking on a bigger role in the sequel. Since Boseman’s passing, theories and speculations have hovered among the audience that Wright’s Shuri could very well take over the titular cloak from his brother, with the recent delay and her involvement in so many stunts seemingly pointing to some validity in this mindset. Production is currently set to resume Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in January, while the film is set for release on November 11, 2022.
