Interrupted last November following an injury to Letitia Wright, the filming of Black Panther 2 will resume this week.
Here we go again ! The production of the sequel to the Black Panther phenomenon will definitely not have gone as planned. The team of course had to deal with the death of Chadwick Boseman, the interpreter of the King of Wakanda, in August 2020, forcing director and screenwriter Ryan Coogler to review his copy.
It was not until June 2021 that the filming of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was able to begin according to a brand new scenario whose plot has not been revealed but which should logically speak of the succession of T’ Challa in the Black Panther costume. His sister, Shuri, seems to be the perfect choice to take up the torch.
But then, the interpreter of the latter, Letitia Wright, was injured during the shooting last August, forcing the production to stop in November, once all the scenes where she did not appear have been canned. A new setback which nevertheless did not impact the release date of the film, still set for November 9.
According to HollywoodReporter, Letitia Wright is now recovered and ready to resume filming in Atlanta. Four weeks of shooting are a priori planned. In this new adventure, the actress will again give the reply to Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Martin Freeman (Everett K. Ross), Daniel Kaluuya (W’Kabi) and Angela Bassett (Ramonda) .
But also Winston Duke (M’Baku) who, for the occasion, would have negotiated a significant salary increase, according to sources from the American media. The reason ? His character would have a more substantial role in this second episode.
Remember that two other MCU films are expected in dark rooms before Black Panther: Wakanda Forever: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 4) and Thor: Love and Thunder (July 13).
