But in the month of November, Marvel revealed that the injury to the actress was worse than imagined. In this context the studio announced a delay in production of the mega sequel.

Marvel President Kevin Feige said in a statement that, “We initially thought Letitia’s injury was minor, but it got worse with the actress fractured her shoulder and serious side effects.”

But now that Letitia has recovered, the production is also going to start soon.
