Letitia Wright injured on ‘Black Panther 2’ set

Actress Letitia Wright was admitted to a nearby hospital for treatment after an incident with a stunt rig on the Boston set of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

“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,” reported Deadline quoting a spokesperson for Marvel.

The 27-year-old actress has now been released, according to sources who spoke to the publication on Wednesday.

According to them, the incident will have no bearing on the film’s production timetable.

Since the end of June, the main filming for the highly anticipated Black Panther sequel has been taking place in Atlanta.

Wright will reprise her role as Shuri, a bright tech wizard and Wakanda princess, in the forthcoming superhero picture.

Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba, and Angela Bassett, as well as director Ryan Coogler, will reprise their roles.

Wakanda Forever is the follow-up to the global smash movie Black Panther from 2018, starring Chadwick Boseman, who died on August 28, 2020 after a four-year struggle with colon cancer.

The second instalment will be released on July 8, 2022.
