Letitia Wright denies report claiming she is expressing anti-vaccination views on the set of Black panther 2. Following some delays related to COVID-19, the production of the 2018 sequel Black Panther began in Atlanta last June before its July 2022 release date. Original director Ryan Coogler is back with writer Joe Robert Cole. However, the sequel had to be significantly reworked following the tragic death of T’Challa actor Chadwick Boseman. The film will see Black Panther stars Angela Bassett, Martin Freeman, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke reprising their roles.
There has been a lot of intriguing news coming out of the Black panther 2 is happening lately, including the reveal that Dominique Thorne will make her MCU debut in the film as Riri Williams, a brilliant inventor who creates her own Iron Man costume, ahead of her upcoming Disney + series, Stone heart. Letitia Wright, who will return as Shuri, was hospitalized in late August after suffering a minor injury, although she was able to return soon after. Earlier this month, Wright found himself embroiled in yet another controversy when Hollywood journalist claimed she was speaking out against the COVID-19 vaccine on set.
Now Letitia Wright is denying these claims in an Instagram post. The actress says so “saddens“she to have to look into the report published by THR and went to “honestly assert“that the allegations made about his conduct on the set of Black panther 2 are “completely wrongWright went on to defend her work ethic and say that she “the main goal is always to do impactful and inspiring work. ”Read Wright’s full statement on Instagram below:

While Wright unequivocally denies the claims of THR, she has not clarified her actual beliefs about the COVID-19 vaccine or whether or not she herself has been vaccinated. Wright shared similar sentiments on social media, including a YouTube video that questioned the legitimacy of the COVID-19 vaccine. The report claims this caused her to part ways with her entire team of U.S. representatives, although Wright did not specifically address this claim.
Wright has since removed the video from his social media, and the Instagram statement is his first post since the controversy began. Although she has now denied claims that she espouses anti-vaccine beliefs, the evidence has undoubtedly mounted against her. Disney will begin requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination for anyone working on its productions, albeit those who are already filming, such as Black panther 2, will be exempt from this mandate. While Wright could finish the rest of the film without further controversy, it could pose challenges for his future in the MCU.
