Letitia Wright Allegedly Quits 'Black Panther 2' as She Refuses to Get Vaccinated

The Shuri of Marvel Cinematic Universe has reportedly chosen to give up her role in the blockbuster superhero franchise because of Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

AceShowbiz - Rumor has it, Letitia Wright is done with Marvel. The report came after the 28-year-old British actress, who played Chadwick Boseman's onscreen sister in "Black Panther", took a break from filming the upcoming sequel "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" due to an injury.

The star allegedly left Marvel Cinematic Universe because she's unwilling to get Covid-19 jab, which was mandatory for the crew and cast. According to Giant Freakin Robot (GFR), the news was spilled by an insider that "has proven to be in the know with past exclusive reports that are now confirmed."

Speculations about her fate in the MCU have become the talk of the town since she questioned the Covid vaccines. It's been rumored that her on-set injury, which prompted her to remain in London since September, was just a cover for her objection over Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

Before leaving the production for the so-called injury, the Shuri depicter reportedly spread anti-vaccine message on the set.

She, however, vehemently denied it on Instagram, "It saddens me to have to address the reports published by The Hollywood Reporter on October 6th 2021. The report spoke about my conduct on the set of 'Black Panther 2'. I honestly assert that this was completely untrue."

"Anyone who knows me or has worked with me, knows that I work incredibly hard at my craft & my main focus is always to do work that's impactful and inspiring," she continued. "That has been & will continue to be my only focus."

The public scrutiny against her piled up after she shared on Twitter last year a video that doubted the legitimacy of Covid-19 vaccine. She has since deleted the clip. "My intention was not to hurt anyone, my ONLY intention of posting the video was it raised my concerns with what the vaccine contains and what we are putting in our bodies," she tried to explain herself. "Nothing else."
