Wright was injured on set in August. Initially, filming continued on scenes that did not involve Wright’s character, Shuri. However, it was announced in November that the production would go on hiatus as Wright’s injury was found to be more serious than initially believed.

Details of the incident have not been released to the public, but reports indicated that Wright had returned home to the UK under the care of her health providers while she recovered.

Recently, rumors began to spread that Wright had not received vaccinations against COVID-19. As proof of vaccination is required for travel into the US, this rumor sparked more rumors that Wright would not be allowed to return to the set and would have to be recast.

The news of production resuming on the “Black Panther” sequel will come as good news to Marvel fans, as the project has already suffered delays.
