Marvel Denies Letitia Wright’s ‘Black Panther’ Departure
Wright is expected to return to set in January, months after her near-fatal injury.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
New rumors have surfaced that British actress Letitia Wright has withdrawn from the upcoming ‘Wakanda Forever’ production owing to her anti-vax beliefs.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Marvel insider debunked the rumors, saying that the actress will return to set in January as planned to finish production for the highly anticipated sequel.
Wright’s rumored departure follows a video showing her doubting the safety of Covid-19 immunizations, an unmistakable red flag, especially given the production company’s stance on having vaccinated cast and staff on location.
The news of Wright’s departure ignited a Twitter trend, with supporters demanding that Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa be replaced. Remember that Marvel has said that the character will not be recast on several occasions.
Daniel Kaluuya, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, and Duke Winston will reprise their roles in Black Panther’s ‘Wakanda Forever,’ with the narrative said to revolve around Wright’s character Shuri.
