17 Jan – Despite the many setbacks faced by the production, it was revealed that Marvel Studios' "Black Panther" sequel will resume filming.
It is noted that the film recently had to halt production again after it was revealed that several cast and crew were tested positive for COVID-19, including one of its main cast members, Lupita Nyong'o.
Prior to that, it had to shut down after Letitia Wright, who plays Princess Shuri, suffered an injury while filming a stunt in Boston, prompting the film to shoot around her and then shutting down in November while awaiting her to heal.
This comes after the actress was involved in a controversy, with some alleging that she was expressing anti-COVID vaccine sentiments.
Shooting is set to resume in Atlanta next week, with director Ryan Coogler reportedly completing the location shoot in about four weeks.
Despite the challenges, sources assured that "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" will be released as scheduled, which is on 11 November 2022.
