With Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings set to hit theaters next week, Marvel continues to underpin the upcoming film and television productions that will make up Phase 4. One of those productions is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The sequel to Ryan Coogler’s film has long been filming in Atlanta, where Marvel Studios has its headquarters. However, part of his filming is moved from time to time to other locations.
One of those “little getaways” took the team to Boston, where, during a night shoot, the actress Letitia wright, known for her role as Shuri, the sister of T’Challa, suffered some minor injuries during a risk scene.
As reported Deadline, Wright spent a few hours in the hospital, but has already been discharged and her incident will not delay the filming plan of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Accompanying Letitia Wright in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be, among others, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba, Angela Bassett and Martin Freeman.
Naturally, the great absence in the film is Chadwick boseman. The actor died last year after having fought for more than four years against cancer that ended up taking his life. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is expected to pay tribute to his legacy, as the character’s mantle is transferred to a new wearer.
Boseman’s latest work with Marvel Studios could be seen, in part, in What If …? which aired one of the episodes starring T’Challa last week. However, more appearances of the character are predicted in the first season of the series.
