It seems like Disney & Marvel Studios Black Panther sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has taken yet another blow to its production. The Hollywood Reporter announced today that the film has been halted again because of this spread of the Omicron virus on the Atlanta set, which has also hit actress including Lupita Nyong’o.
This is yet another major blow to the film that was initially halted due to the passing of Chadwick Boseman & had a few hiccups surrounding the injury of Letitia Wright’s injury on set. Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the film resumed production last week & that this hold on production should only be in place for a week.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is still scheduled to hit theaters on November 11, 2022. The film is being directed by Ryan Coogler, who co-wrote the screenplay with Joe Robert Cole. It stars Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, and Dominique Thorne.
