Black Panther 2 Resumes Filming as Letitia Wright Returns to Set

Last November it was announced that production on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever had been halted in order to give the film’s star Letitia Wright, who suffered an injury during a stunt for the film, time to recover. Now, thanks to a report from the BBC, it seems production has resumed.

Wright is returning to film the sequel after being injured almost five months ago. At the time that the injury was first being reported, it was said that the star had only received minor injuries. However, it was later revealed by a spokesperson for Marvel that Wright had sustained "a critical shoulder fracture and a concussion with severe side effects". Production continued on the film without Wright up to November, with the decision then being made to halt production until Wright was healthy enough to return to set.

A spokesperson for Wright confirmed the film resuming production in a statement to BBC News, saying simply: "Filming resumed this month as planned and we're on schedule."
