Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, directed by Ryan Coogler, is intended to be the sequel of Black Panther. The 30th feature in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been delayed due to the surge of the Covid-19 new variant. The production of ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ has recently resumed.
Filming on the upcoming “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” has resumed after a few delays. The Marvel sequel was cancelled because the omicron COVID-19 variant became prevalent in the country, particularly in Atlanta, where the show is being filmed.
The shooting was briefly halted after numerous cast and staff members, including Lupita Nyong’o, tested positive for the virus. Production was also suspended after Letitia Wright was injured on set, fracturing her shoulder and getting a concussion while doing stunts. The cast and crew were shaken in August 2020 when the franchise’s star, Chadwick Boseman, died of colon cancer.
Ryan Coogler needed to find out what was next for his vision. The rumor was that he would follow in the footsteps of Reggie Hudlin’s Black Panther graphic novel from 2017, in which T’Challa’s scientific younger sister Shuri takes on the mantle.
Shuri was played by Letitia Wright in the first film and may reprise her role. According to Screen Rant, the majority of the actors will return. Angela Bassett will reprise her role as Queen Ramonda, Shuri, and T’Challa’s mother. Danai Gurira will reprise her role as Okoye, Winston Duke will play M’Baku, Lupita Nyong’o will play T’Challa’s old girlfriend Nakia, and Martin Freeman will play CIA operative, Everett Ross.
Finally, the wait is over. The filming has resumed, and the fans are thrilled as well. Keep an eye on Thirsty for more information.
