After a stunt rig mishap on the set of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Letitia Wright was hospitalized with minor injuries. “Letitia Wright was injured while filming a stunt for ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ today. She is presently being treated in a local hospital and is expected to be released soon, “a Marvel spokeswoman told Variety in a statement. The filming took place overnight in Boston, while the production for the sequel to “Black Panther” is headquartered in Atlanta. There is currently no influence on the film’s production timeline. Wright originally appeared in the first “Black Panther” film as Shuri, the brilliant scientist and younger sister of T’Challa, played by the late Chadwick Boseman. She also appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe team-up flicks “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.” Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” filming began in June 2021.


The plot and cast information are being kept under wraps, although the major cast members, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba, and Angela Bassett, are likely to return for the sequel to the Oscar-nominated film. Last month, Variety first announced that “I May Destroy You” creator and actor Michaela Coel had joined the cast in an unspecified capacity. In addition, Dominique Thorne, who will portray the up-and-coming superhero Ironheart in her own Disney Plus TV series, announced this week that she will be introduced in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” before her TV debut.


The film “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will be released in theatres on July 8, 2022.
