BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER Halts Production AGAIN As Lupita Nyong'o And Others Test Positive For COVID

It's been revealed that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has once again halted production after members of the sequel's cast and crew tested positive for COVID-19. Find the latest details after the jump...

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hasn't had the smoothest of productions. Many fans have questioned whether a sequel should even happen in the wake of Chadwick Boseman's tragic death, but the movie has since seen star Letitia Wright injured thanks to a stunt gone wrong and work halted prior to the holidays thanks to various pandemic-related complications. 

Rumour has it that Wright has finally agreed to be vaccinated, enabling her to work in the U.S. and on Disney productions given their rules about cast and crew having the jab.

Of course, this lessens the symptoms and reduces the risk of hospitalisation and death; it doesn't stop you from getting COVID. Now, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that after restarting production in Atlanta, Georgia last week, work on the Marvel Studios movie has been delayed yet again. 

The trade explains, "several cast and crew members including Lupita Nyong’o tested positive for the virus." Don't panic too much, though, as work will resume later this week. 

This is still another blow to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and you have to believe it's going to make everyone's job that little bit harder as the movie's release date nears. It can't be helped, though, and the important thing is that everyone on set who has contracted the virus makes a full, speedy recovery.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever arrives in theaters on November 11, 2022.
