It’s been like a long delivery, but Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has managed to finish filming after delays and complications.
We are used to things in Marvel Studios always go from strength to strength when it comes to organizing. The work system of the prolific studio has made it possible for Kevin Feige’s people to deal with several productions simultaneously, both film and television.
However, the coronavirus pandemic posed a challenge to filming around the world, and Marvel Studios was not left out. Many movies and series had their filming interrupted and anti-COVID measures were imposed on all sets.

Marvel had a lapse of a year in 2020 without releasing anything at all. The studio is catching up with releases pouring in 2021 and 2022.
This November, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the sequel to the 2018 film directed by Ryan Coogler. To say that the shooting of this film has been difficult would be an understatement.
the tragic Chadwick Boseman’s death in 2020 was a serious setback for the production, which had to be restructured to build your narrative without T’Challa. Marvel’s decision not to continue the character is considered a mistake by many, including Boseman’s brother.
Filming for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever officially kicked off last summer. However, last November the filming was interrupted after an accident of Letitia Wright.

The actress, in addition, has been very upset by the anti-COVID measures, although in principle this should not have affected the workflow. It seems that, after stoppages and various setbacks, the filming of the Black Panther sequel has wrapped up principal photography on it.
We say “seems” because filming moved a few weeks ago to Puerto Rico, where part of the film was shot. Multiple crew members (via Black Panther Wakanda Forever News) have shared wrap-up messages, but they could refer to the end of filming on location.
On the other hand, considering that the release date of Ryan Coogler’s film is set for November 22, 2022, it is very possible that it is the definitive end. 7 months for the bulk of the post-production work and the reshoots phase is enough, although a fair amount remains.
