In some unfortunate news, it seems Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star Letitia Wright’s injuries were more extensive than initially suggested. She suffered both a concussion and shoulder fracture, which is delaying production until January 2022.
While filming in Boston in August, Letitia Wright suffered an undisclosed injury on set due to a failed stunt rig incident and now production has had no choice but to cease as Wright takes time to heal properly and the crew awaits her return to set to finish the film.
The last of the scenes that can be filmed without Letitia’s involvement will take place this month, with the cast and crew reportedly being sent home the week of Thanksgiving and set to return to the studio and finish filming in early 2022.
Marvel Studios recently shifted the theatrical release schedule for the remainder of Phase 4. Letitia’s injury was partly a concern regarding the delays, but Disney didn’t confirm the other list of factors. Instead, they’re choosing to focus on shifting projects around to better space out the theatrical releases. Marvel Studios President and CCO Kevin Feige shared with Variety last month, “It’s production shifts and changes, and because we have so many slots, we can just shift slots. All the Marvel slots are the same, we’re just shifting when they’re coming out. And yes, Strange [in the Multiverse of Madness] has moved six weeks, so instead of there being three months between Marvel movies, there will be five months between Marvel movies and I think we can all handle that.”
