After several setbacks including a major on-set injury and Covid-19 infections, Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is finally restarting production. Letitia Wright has finally recovered from her injuries and back in Atlanta to resume her role as fan-favourite Shuri. The Ryan Coogler-directed film was supposed to have restarted last Monday but was delayed thanks to an outbreak of Covid-19 infections among several cast and crew including Lupita Nyong’o. Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman died of colon cancer in August 2020 that prompted the makers to reconceive the sequel without the beloved actor at the centre.
