The film, which promises to be a great tribute to Chadwick Boseman, had a long production period during the pandemic period. Among the most notable, in addition to having to deal with the death of the lead actor of the first feature, it also went through some controversies with its cast.

Tensions over its placement, however, appeared to have been resolved.
Now, the actress has commented on the issue. In an interview with the Varietywhen asked what she’s learned from the pandemic, as her name has been wrapped in headlines and frequently discussed on social media, Wright said she’s standing strong in what she believes in.
“I learned that in life you just have to stay strong with what you believe in“, she said. “[Seja] in terms of his talent, in terms of his desire to impact the world with his art, and that’s exactly what I’m doing, and I’m so proud of myself and the movie that’s coming out this year. I’m so proud of it”.
