Letitia Wright Reportedly Espousing Anti-Vax Views at Black Panther 2 Set

It looks like Letitia Wright is still holding on to her anti-vaccination stand. The Avengers: Infinity War actress has reportedly "espoused" her views while working on the set of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Earlier this year, Wright came under fire after sharing a COVID-19 anti-vaccination video on social media. Fans had mixed reactions to the post but it also led to speculations that the Black Mirror actress would not be returning in Black Panther 2.

It has since been confirmed that Wright will reprise her role as Shuri in Black Panther 2 but that doesn't mean she has changed her views. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wright is still expressing her anti-vax views while working on the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel.

"In Wright's case, a set source says she has espoused similar views about the COVID-19 vaccines on the Atlanta production," the report reads. It also confirms that Wright has since cut ties with her US reps.

"The British actress quietly parted ways with her entire U.S. team of representatives in the wake of a backlash over posting a controversial anti-vaccine video in December," the report stated.

It's interesting to note that Disney and Marvel Studios hasn't reprimanded Wright on sharing her views. However, there is a possibility that a meeting took place and that the actress had quietly faced the studios. It is also believed that Wright's actions were not disruptive enough to warrant a more severe action from Disney.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is still in production but is already scheduled for release on July 8, 2022.
