Deadline received a note sent to the cast and crew of Black Panther 2 by Marvel’s Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, and Nate Moore. The three addressed the shutdown of production and Wright’s injury and revealed that Wright suffered from a “critical shoulder fracture and concussion with severe side effects.”

Wright was reportedly injured in an incident involving a stunt platform. In the Marvel Producers Note, the injuries were originally considered minor, but turned out to be much more serious. “It was a painful process and Letitia returned home with her doctors and the support of her family. “
Wright and the crew are set to resume filming of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in January 2022. Sources claim Wright also sent a video message to the cast and crew thanking them for their support.
Right before the production hiatus, the crew continued filming scenes in Atlanta, GA that did not require Wright to be present. But with Wright’s Shuri set to play a bigger role in the sequel, filming became impossible to continue without her.
The production hiatus has led Marvel to move the Black Panther 2 release date from July 8 to November 11, and also move a few other Marvel titles for 2022. Check out IGN’s full schedule of upcoming Marvel shows and movies here. .
