Filming for Black Panther 2 restarts after months of hiatus and Winston Duke gets ‘raise’

Filming for Black Panther 2 resumes after months-long hiatus after star Letitia Wright and Winston Duke get ‘big pay raise’










Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever began filming again months after star Letitia Wright’s injury delayed production.

The 28-year-old actress plays Shuri in the film series and was injured in August 2021. The Black Panther 2 team filmed as much as they could without the star, but had to stop at the end of November last year.

Her agent told The Hollywood Reporter that she always intended to return to production, even though vaccination against COVID-19 is mandatory for all people on set.

Wright previously made statements that many believed opposed vaccination against the virus that has killed more than 5.5 million people.

The Black Mirror actress shared a link to a YouTube video last December that asked whether people should get vaccinated.

She wrote on Twitter: ‘If you don’t conform to popular opinion. but ask questions and think for yourself… you will be cancelled.’

After some reaction from fans about her tweet, she replied, “You have every right to ask questions about what goes into your body and ask questions until you feel you’re ready.”

Wright did make it clear that it was ‘not my intention to upset anyone’ [prayer hands emoji] I’m not saying you shouldn’t take it either. I’m just worried about what’s in it, that’s all. Isn’t that fair to ask or ask?’

Despite the production delay, it wasn’t bad news for the entire cast.
