It hasn’t been an easy production for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, as they were forced to wrap up early due to Letitia Wright getting injured on set. They did start production on reshoots some time ago, which were eyeing a March wrap-up but it seems they have added a new production location according to One Take News.
In their latest article, they shared that the upcoming film is ending their work in Atlanta and then heading to Puerto Rico in the near future. They highlight that the location will be used as a backdrop for Haiti, but no further details. It is curious they are adding a new location this late into the production, but if they weren’t able to return to Haiti.
With the rumors surrounding Namor becoming a primary addition in the upcoming sequel, the location would seem fitting as a location that has ties to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s take on Atlantis. We don’t know how they might tackle the mystical sunken city, perhaps it is not underwater but hidden from the world. The addition of this late into production might also be an indication of this being used for a post-credit sequence potentially.
We won’t know for sure until Black Panther: Wakanda Forever releases later this year. The film is still eyeing a November production start, but the longer reproduction drags out, the more it seems like that’ll be unlikely. Hopefully, it doesn’t rush the post-production but they may have used the time in between reshoots to cover the loss of time.
