A new report of actors expressing anti-vaccination views on sets states that Letitia Wright is supporting said beliefs on the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever set. Plot details regarding the second installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise are currently being kept under wraps, with co-writer/director Ryan Coogler having taken the past year to readjust the story following Chadwick Boseman’s passing from colon cancer. The film will see the returns of Black Panther stars Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Wright, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will also mark the MCU debut of Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, a genius inventor who will create a suit of armor rivaling Iron Man’s and eventually lead her own Disney+ series Ironheart. Production on the sequel finally got underway in Atlanta in June following COVID-19-related delays. Filming saw a brief hiccup as Wright was temporarily hospitalized with injuries sustained during a stunt in Boston, though new word states that may not be the end of it for the actress.
The Hollywood Reporter has shared a new report regarding a number of actors who continue to defend their anti-vaccination beliefs on social media and on sets, including Letitia Wright on the set of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. A source from the film’s set has stated she is expressing views against the COVID-19 pandemics on the Atlanta production, though no word was specified as to whether she received a form of the vaccination for the shoot. The report also reveals that Wright and her U.S. team of representatives parted ways following her posting of a controversial anti-vaccine video on social media in December.
