‘Black Panther’ actress prefers to leave long to take vaccine against Covid


Actress Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri in the “Black Panther” movies, is likely to leave the film’s cast because she refuses to get vaccinated against Covid-19. The information was confirmed with a source heard by the Giant Freakin Robot website. She has already posted on social networks against the immunizing agent.

According to the source, Letitia prefers to leave the Marvel Cinematographic Universe than to be forced to immunize herself. Shooting for “Black Panther” 2 is on hold because the actress was injured while filming a sequence of action scenes in August of this year.

The film’s production believed that the actress had suffered a minor injury, but it was recently revealed that it was more serious. With that, the filming of the film was postponed until 2022, while Letitia recovers. The release date for the film, directed by Ryan Coogler, is set for November 11, 2022.

The actress’s character is expected to take on an even more important role in this sequel, after the death of Chadwick Boseman, protagonist of the film, from cancer last year.

Nominated for seven Oscar categories, including best film, “Black Panther” grossed US$1.3 billion (more than R$7.2 billion at current exchange rates) worldwide.

In July, Disney, which owns Marvel Studios, issued a statement saying that employees working at any of the company’s facilities must be fully vaccinated. Proof of vaccination will be required for all.
