The internet has gone crazy over a rumor that Letitia Wright is leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The source came from a website known to publish crazy stories and was later picked up by verified journalists. Well, thanks to an exchange, it turns out that it isn’t.

According to Hollywood journalist via their blog Heat Vision, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is on track to resume production in January. They also report that Letitia Wright is still on board the project.

Production halted last month as Wright injured himself in late August while the film was filming a sequence involving a stunt platform on location in Boston. Director Ryan Coogler is said to have shot all of the footage his team is capable of filming without filming Wright’s scenes.
