Production on the sequel to 2018’s Black Panther began in June, with a July 2022 release date targeted. The sequel is tricky, as it has to deal with the real-life death of actor Chadwick Boseman, the star of the original film. Wright will be returning in her role as Shuri, a Princess of Wakanda and the younger sister of T’Challa (Boseman), the Black Panther.
The Hollywood Reporter claimed earlier this month Wright was making anti-vaccination statements on the set. Wright was hospitalized in late August after suffering a minor injury on set, but quickly returned to filming.
