Filming resumed this week on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, with director Ryan Coogler overseeing what is said to be another four weeks of work at Marvel’s Atlanta-area production complex before the film wraps principal photography.
This last stretch picks up where the project left off in November, which is when it shut down for an extended, nearly two-month break. Said to be in attendance and working on this last round of shooting is star Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri, the sister of T’Challa and Wakanda’s brilliant technological innovator.

A story inspired by “T’challas Outside Daughter” written by the brilliant author of it Marvel Heaux
Description: Wally and Jalena are the firstborn twins of T’challa. The twins moved to LA with their mother without any contact from their father. After losing their mom at the age of 10 the twins were taking care of by their family from their mom's side. Now the twins are grown and have become successful. After 15 years and exposure T’challa then decides he wants to be back in their lives. But will the twins let him?
Back in Jalena’s room
Wally was just standing there awkwardly looking at his father. He always dreamed of this moment, what he would say to him. But it all went away when he saw T’challa.
T’challa glanced at his son before turning to his mother to ask her what was going on and why were the twins here.
“umama.” T’challa gently called his mother.
“What is going on? He asked.
“I didn't know how to tell you, son, because I knew you wouldn't approve of them here.
“But I'm glad I didn't because they're finally home right where they belong,” she said with courage in her voice.
“Thanks, grandma.”Wally held out his hand for her to hold.
“You're welcome.” she smiled back at him.
T’challa looked at the both his mom and son with a sad look.
Okoye was speechless at how Wally looked so much like T’challa.
Queen Nora didn't know what to say to her stepson. After all, she was one of the reasons why his T’challa and his Mom split up. She was very scared about how he would react to seeing her.
“Hi, Wallison.” she nervously said.
“I'm Nora we kind of met when you were a child.” she awkwardly told him.
“Oh that was a long time ago and I'm not really that good with faces but it's nice to meet you.” He reached out his hand to her.
They both shook each other hands. Wally looked back to his dad.
“It's nice to see you dad.” he nervously said.
“It's nice to see you to son.
They stared at each other for a few seconds. T’challa was so amazed at how his son looked so much like him and his mother.
Seconds later... Amara heard her parent's voice coming from the end of the hall.
“Mom, Dad, Grandma, what's going on?
“Who is he? She asked.
“Umm, this is- uh.” T’challa kept jumbling his words trying to tell his daughter the truth.
“Uh, what dad?
“He's your brother.” Said, Queen Nora.
Amara looked at her parents confused.
“What do you mean he's my brother. I only have one brother.” she said while staring at Wally.
“What's going on?
“It's a long story hun we'll tell you everything later but for now go with ayo back to your room and I'll be there soon,” said Nora.
“No, wait, mom.
“I’ll be there soon. I promise.”
Ayo escorted Amara out of the room so that everyone could figure out what to do.
Meanwhile, T’challa and Nora both turned their heads back to the situation.
“Would you um... like to join.. us for dinner later on? Nervously T’challa asked.
“I'd love to”. Chuckled Wally.
“Well will leave you to get settled in. See you tonight,” said Nora.
The Queen and King both left the room with Okyoye.
“Do you think your sister will join? Ramonda asked.
“I honestly don't know grandma.
“She’s really mad at me for bringing her here against her will.
“But I'll try to get her to come.
“No, it's alright son. I think I can change her mind.
Ramonda cleared her throat.
“I’ll um.. Leave you to get ready.
“Dinner starts at 8 you can wear anything you'd like.
She gave him a kiss on his forehead before leaving.
Jalena was still trying to find her way out of the palace.
Shuri was looking for her brother to see what was going on.
Jalena spotted Shuri she quickly tried to look for another way but Shuri had already seen her.
“What are you doing? She smiled giving her a big hug.
“I've missed you so much umtshana.
“I wish I could say the same,” Jalena gently pushed her away breaking up their hug.
She gave her a confused look after breaking up their hug.
“Look, Aunt Shuri, I don't mean to rude but I'm just not that close to you.
“I had nothing to do with my brother and your mother. I told him what he was doing to you all was wrong.” Shuri explained.
“I get that your angry but don't take it out on me.
“NO, I WILL TAKE IT OUT ON YOU!!”she yelled startling Shuri.
She quickly calmed herself down and apologize.
“I just want to get out of this place.” she sighed.
“I accept your apologise... but i really want you to stay.
“Please stay,” she begged her.
“I can't I'm sorry.
Jalena walked passed Shuri onto the elevator. They stared at each other until the door close.
As Jalena walked through the hallways of the palace she suddenly remembered running through the hallway when she was young with her grandfather.
Flashback (15 years ago in Wakanda)...
(Pretend like it's Jalena running guys 😂)
“Slow down honey your gonna end up falling.”
“Baba, I'm trying to find daddy.” Where is he?
“He went on a mission with the Dora milijae.
“He's always on missions I never ever get to see him. Jalena said to her grandfather with a sad tone and tears falling down her eyes.
I know uswiti but he's preparing to be king after I step down. He needs to practice.
T’chaka knew that this wasn't true but he didn't want to break Jalena’s heart he knew that T’challa was in fact in Wakanda hanging out with W’kabi instead of his kids.
“Ok, I understand. Let's go get some food Baba?”
“Lead the way Nkosazana,” T’chaka said with a smile as he and Jalena were off to get food
Baba, I miss you.” she whispered to herself.
She reached in her pocket for her phone but came to find out she couldn't find it nor her luggage.
She was such in a rush to get out of the palace that she had forgotten her things.
“Now I have to go all the way back to get my things.
“What a great day this turned out to be.” she sarcastically said to herself.
Meanwhile, Shuri made her way into Wally's room.
“I cant belive it.
“You're finally here.” she ran to hug him.
“It’s great to see you, Aunt Shuri.
“You look nice.
“Thank you umtshana,” she said.
“Anyways I saw your sister on my way here.
“She looked pretty... Angry.”
“Yeah about that.. I kinda dragged her here.
“I'm sorry I just really wanted to see you all and I knew she would NEVER come her if I told her. So I had no choice.
“I get it. We missed you both too kiddo.
“And it's great that you both came because family week is next week and now we finally can have the whole family together.
“Don't take this the wrong way auntie but I don't really think that's a good idea.” he awkwardly told her.
“It’s just that Jalena isn't really in the mood for all that and it wouldn't be the same if she wasn't there.
“I suppose your right. My brother really hurt her.
“But it's still great to have you too here.” she smiled.
“Are you guys joining us for dinner?
“Uh yeah just give me some time to convince my sister.
“My dear nephew.... I think your gonna need all the time in the world to convince her to come after how angry she looked when I saw her.
They both laughed.
Jalena made it back to her room. She quietly closed the door so no one would know she was in there especially with her brother's room right across the hall from hers. Her luggage was placed on the chair along with her phone.
“There you are.” she picked up her phone.
She tried to turn it on but realized it was dead.
DAMNMIT!! she yelled.
She reached into her suitcase and pulled out her charger but before she could put it in the outlet she suddenly heard a knock.
She stopped right in her tracks and tried not to make a sound.
“Hun it's your grams.
“I know your in there. please open the door. I just want to talk.
Jalena felt bad ignoring her grandmother.
“Come in,” she said quietly.
“Hey, hun I wanted to see how you were doing.
“Grandma don't take this the wrong way but... I’d rather stab myself repeatedly over and over than be here In Wakanda.
Ramonda looked to her horrified by hearing her wildly, scary reaction to not wanting to be in Wakanda.
“This we'll never be my home, Grandma. HE!!! ruined the chance for it to ever be” Jalena said to her Grandmother while pointing to T’challa in the picture.
“The sooner you learn that the quicker it'll be to move on like I had to.”
“I'll never give up hope umntwana, never.”
Ramonda assured to her before leaving the room.
After their conversation ended, Shuri walked into the room.
“Is my favorite niece staying after all?”
“No offense Aunt Shuri but I'm definitely not your favorite niece.” Amara is and you know that Jalena harshly said to Shuri.
Shuri didn't expect to hear that from her niece let alone be called out for false pretenses. She was not about to be disrespected by her niece.
“LISTEN HERE NUGGET!!! Shuri shouted.
“Nugget?” Jalena looked to shuri with a confused look on her face.
I DON'T APPRECIATE YOU CALLING ME OUT MY NAME!!” You ARE my favorite niece I've always thought about you and your brother. It's not my fault I'm not your father so stop taking your anger out on us.
“No, it is your FAULT!! Jalena shouted back at Shuri.
“You, Grandma, Baba you all didn't fight for us.”
Suddenly tears fell from Jalena’s eyes. Shuri’s expression quickly changed when she saw her niece cry. She sat down beside her niece and placed her head on her shoulder to comfort her.
“Shh, it's okay let it all out” she softly said to her brushing her hair back.
You all abandoned us, you let him abandoned us” Jalena cried.
You don't know how many times I called him, texted him, prayed to the gods that he'd come back to us... but he never did. Instead, he had a new family and forgot all about us now all of a sudden he wants to know us.
Jalena jumped up from Shuri's shoulder yelling.
“I REFUSE to let him hurt my brother all over again. He already hurt me but he will NOT hurt my brother ever again.
Shuri looked at her niece with sadness she knows that her brother messed things up BIG TIME with the twins. She fears that he'll never be able to fix things with Jalena because she is beyond fixing things.
In the Kings room...
“So how are you feeling about all of this? Queen Nora asked her husband.
T’challa turned around to face the window he felt like the world was ending. He knew that this day would always come and he always dreaded it. But it was time to face the music and be the father to his kids that he wasn't before.
“Honestly, I'm ashamed.” I am ashamed because my daughter and son have suffered. After all, I wasn't there. I never cared to be there. My daughter has been killed multiple times, traumatized, suffers from PTSD, and has her own family. Wally almost died permanently and I had no idea. I'm the world's most horrible, father and it's all my fault.” T’challa confessed to his wife crying.
Queen Nora sat next to her husband and began to comfort him.
“Honey don't beat yourself up about it what's done is done all. What you can do now is try to be better... be a father.”
T’challa thought about what his wife told him about trying to be a father to the twins. He knew it wasn't going to be easy but he wasn't going to give up on them again. This time he determined to make it right.
“Come now honey.
“Have a quick nap before dinner. she said whilst putting T’challa to bed.
“Ok.” he sighed.
T’challa laid his head down on his pillow and slowly closed his eyes.
He thought to himself “this dinner is going to be a complete disaster.”

#BlackPantherWakandaForever will resume filming next week with #LetitiaWright; release date will not be affected by delays
By Stephen Ippolito | January 15th, 2022 After being shut down in November to allow one of its stars more time to heal from an injury, production for the highly anticipated film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is finally set to resume. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the sequel will restart filming next week in Atlanta with Letitia Wright. The actress who plays Shuri suffered a shoulder…

Black Panther Wakanda Forever to resume production next week
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Production will resume from next week. According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Letitia Wright, who was injured during an accident on the sets of the film in August last year, has recovered and is in Atlanta to shoot the film again. The outlet reported that production was initially supposed to resume last week, but was delayed after several cast…

Also, this section of the article:
According to their report, which regards the production restart on Wakanda Forever with star Letitia Wright, M'Baku actor Winston Duke negotiated "a hefty raise" for his return in the film, as a result of getting "an expanded role in the Panther mythos."
With all the drama that’s going on with Letitia Wright (her anti-vaccine stance, the accidents on set), not trying to spread rumors around but this kind of feels like Marvel is setting up M’Baku to lead the Black Panther franchise. Maybe Shuri was supposed to take over the mantle like in the comics, but when the behind-the-scenes trouble started brewing, plans were changed.
I don’t know, it’s just a thought. Either way, the production for BP2 has been a damn mess. It’s like they can’t stop running into problems, which is a shame to see due to how beloved the first movie was.
Black Panther 2 production resumed this month after a hiatus 🎬
In my opinion, Wakanda Forever should end with Wakanda becoming a Democracy and all the tribes becoming the Black Panther/Avatar/leader of their tribes. Ideally Nakia or Okoye of their tribe and M'Baku of his tribe and you get that picture.
And before anyone asks, unless Shuri is either recast or Letitia Wright stops being an anti-vaxxer idiot, then yes I could see Shuri being the Black Panther and one of the leaders of Wakanda
“Wakanda Forever” has resumed filming after Letitia Wright’s injuries and Lupita Nyong’o having COVID.
I KNOW THAT’S RIGHT~
