“Letitia Wright sustained minor injuries today while filming a stunt for ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,’” a spokesperson told Variety on Wednesday. “She is currently receiving care in a local hospital and is expected to be released soon.”
The exact details of the incident have not been released, although multiple outlets confirmed the accident involved a stunt rig and Wright suffered only minor injuries.
According to Variety, the Guyanese-born British actress, 27, was filming in Boston during an overnight shoot when the accident occurred. Most of the “Black Panther” sequel’s production has been taking place in Atlanta.
Wright’s accident is not expected to negatively impact the film’s shooting, according to multiple outlets. “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” has a July 8, 2022, release date.
The Emmy-nominated actress is reprising her role as Shuri alongside actors Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba and Angela Bassett.
Last August, Wright lost her on-screen brother, Chadwick Boseman, when he died of colon cancer.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirmed to Deadline in January that they will not be recasting T’Challa — Boseman’s role — in the sequel.
