Perhaps this may be be an indication Disney is now being diminishing her role on the franchise ??

- “More details about the injury have not been released but it was initially described as minor.”

Wright was injured while filming a stunt sequence in Boston in late August.

Disney is now moving forward with plans to have vaccinated cast & crew that central to the main plot lines, separated from ‘others’ on sets.

In October, Wright became more outspoken, questioning the efficacy & unsubstantiated, potential side effects of vaccinations.

Read the entire controversy, her denial of subverting the production and speculate for yourselves until the studio is more forthcoming :

Our Ethiopian friend and family find the name of this movie not very palatable.

I’m confused about how they are continuing with this series after Chadwick Boseman died. Have they recast the role, or is it a Black Panther movie without Black Panther?

The Black Panther franchise was dead once Chadwick passed away - female superhero movies are not popular with either sex (just look at the last wonder woman movie which flopped).

Black Panther was good but needs to do better with it's diversity, there was no Korean, no Japanese no south Asian and no white people in it. Come on, get with the times guys.

Most-to-All "boxes ticked". AND, as a result, will NOT be showing in China.

It’s a movie.

Derived from a culture of comic books that constantly kill off and miraculously revive or reinvent characters.

Chill out.

Wright has heroically rejected pressure from Hollywood’s bug pharma shills to take the clot shot. I hope her the best.

Actually, the incidence of blood clots is more common in the general population than among those who receive the vaccines. It's also much higher among those who have contracted covid-19. It's nice to know the facts. They protect all of us:

Please get vaccinated.

Broken finger nail, stubbed toe, pimple on the nose? You know how spoiled millionaires make every little thing a crisis.

Letitia Wright's Shuri is now the queen of Wakanda and the new Black Panther following T'Challa's heroic on-film demise. This is why Letitia was shooting action sequences, as Black Panther.

Black Panther is Africa-centric.

Two Korean actors are being added to MCU films, Gilgamesh in Eternals and The New Hulk in Captain Marvel 2. 

As for Japanese superheroes, Japan is a small film market for Marvel so no consideration is given. This is why even an existing Japanese superhero character was taken out and replaced by Indian in Eternals.

How can Disney diminish her role when she's playing Black Panther in a Black Panther film?
