Christian actress Letitia Wright was hospitalized after she was injured on the BLACK PANTHER sequel set.
“Letitia Wright sustained minor injuries today while filming a stunt for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. She is currently receiving care in a local hospital and is expected to be released soon,” a spokesperson for Marvel said Wednesday.
As of Thursday, she was released from the hospital.
Deadline reports that the incident occurred in Boston, though the movie is primarily shooting in Atlanta. Sources told Deadline that the incident was minor and will not impact the shooting schedule.
Wright plays Shuri, the sister of Black Panther T’Challa. T’Challa was portrayed by Chadwick Boseman, who died in August 2020 after a battle with cancer.
“Letitia has been recovering in London since September from injuries sustained on the set of Black Panther 2 and is looking forward to returning to work early 2022,” a representative for Wright told THR. “Letitia kindly asks that you keep her in your prayers.”
Marvel previously announced that WAKANDA FOREVER would release in Nov. 2022.
