The controversy with Letitia
As we mentioned, the production of the sequel to Black Panther It has faced various controversies since it was announced that Letitia Wright would be the new protagonist. The most complicated matter had to do with the alleged refusal of the actress to the vaccines against COVID-19.
In December 2020, Letitia was questioned and ‘canceled’ on social media after a video was released where she questioned how functional coronavirus vaccines really were. The controversy was rekindled when in October 2021, a report by The Hollywood Reporter and a member close to the production of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever -anonymous-, mentioned that the actress maintained an anti-vaccine stance on set.
After these attacks, some Letitia’s social networks have been taken down due to the attacks and mentions that the actress has received. For now, we have to wait and see what happens with the production directed by Ryan Coogler. A few weeks ago, it was reported that the film would run on its premiere until November 11, 2022, this along with other MCU and Disney productions.
