‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Pauses Production As Letitia Wright Recovers; Fall 2022 Release Date Won’t Be Impacted

Breaking News, Film News

Deadline has confirmed that Disney is shutting down production on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever for a temporary amount of time. The news Friday comes in the wake of star Letitia Wright injuring herself in late August, when she suffered minor injuries on a stunt rig incident. She was released from the hospital at that time.

We understand that Black Panther 2‘s November 11, 2022 release date will not be impacted by the production delay; Disney already pushed the film ahead on the calendar. The film was previously dated for July 8, 2022, but Disney put Thor: Love and Thunder on that date with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness kicking off next summer on May 6.

Production on the sequel to the $1.34 billion, multi-Oscar-winning MCU title has been underway in Atlanta. Director Ryan Coogler has reportedly shot all that’s required outside of Wright’s sequences. The shutdown will commence the week of Thanksgiving, with production tp resume in early 2022.

This weekend, Disney/Marvel has Eternals opening which is eying a $150M start at the worldwide box office.

THR first had the news about Black Panther 2‘s production stop.
