Happy Friday, Fandom Fans! If you’re reading this on November 12th, then you should know it’s my birthday! Please, don’t send all the gifts at once.

But, you know, that when it comes to the news, I always got the goods. So, put on your party hats and slice some cake because it’s my birthday, and I said so.

Major Changes for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Production on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has shut down due to actress Letitia Wright (Shuri) sustaining an injury two months ago. Reports stated the production will close down officially at Thanksgiving, with the current plan to resume in early 2022. Though while it is being reported the shutdown is to allow Wright to rest, many believe it is due to her not being vaccinated for Covid-19. Wright has previously shared her feelings about the vaccine and incurred some public outrage.
Others are reporting that actress Lake Bell was spotted on the set of the Black Panther sequel. There are no details about why she was there or if she has an official role. Many are speculating that Blake will be bringing her animated Black Widow from What If to life.
