BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER Set Photos Show Letitia Wright's Stunt Double On A Motorcycle
Some more photos from the set of Marvel's Black Panther: Wakanda Forever have been shared online, and this time we get a look at Letitia Wright's (Shuri) stunt double shooting a scene on a motorcycle.
As production continues on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in Cambridge, Massachusetts, more photos from the set have found their way online, and it looks like Shuri is going to be seeing some action in the MCU sequel.
Though the rider's face is obscured, Just Jared indicates that the individual on the motorcycle is Letitia Wright's stunt double, while the red Dodge Charger is reportedly being driven by Danai Gurira's (Okoye) stand-in.
We don't have much context for what's being filmed, but it is said to be a "stunt chase sequence," so we can probably assume that Shuri and Okoye haven't decided to have a street race out of the blue and are, in fact, facing some kind of threat here.
Wright was hospitalized after sustaining minor injuries while performing a stunt, so there's a decent chance it was for this very scene.

We still don't know a whole lot about the Marvel sequel, but Chadwick Boseman, who tragically passed away last August after a 4-year battle with colon cancer, will not be replaced as T'Challa or "resurrected" via CGI. Shuri is the favorite to take up the mantle of Black Panther, but some would prefer to see Winston Duke's M'Baku honor his old foe-turned-ally by assuming the responsibility of Wakanda's protector .
A rumor that Narcos Mexico actor Tenoch Huerta will play Namor in the movie recently did the rounds, but that obviously remains to be seen.
Marvel Studios announced that the highly-anticipated sequel will be titled Wakanda Forever during a recent Phase 4 preview. Specific plot details remain under wraps, but a brief logline tells us that "Wakanda Forever will continue to explore the incomparable world of Wakanda and all of the rich and varied characters introduced in the first film."
