Filming for the sequel of Black Panther was briefly interrupted after actress Letitia Wright endured minor injuries following an incident on set. According to Deadline, the star was involved in a stunt mishap during an overnight shoot in Boston.

“Letitia Wright sustained minor injuries today while filming a stunt for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” a spokesperson for Marvel Studios said in a statement on Wednesday morning (Aug 25). “She is currently receiving care in a local hospital and is expected to be released soon.” At the time of her hospitalization, sources said the injuries would have no impact on the film’s production. Hours later, she was discharged from the hospital’s care.

While the incident occurred in Boston, production for the Ryan Coogler-directed Black Panther: Wakanda Forever started at the Pinewood Studios in Atlanta back in June. Wright —who is set to reprise her role as Shuri — will return alongside cast mates Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, and Martin Freeman. Unfortunately, Chadwick Boseman — who starred in the previous film — will be noticeably absent following his death from colon cancer last year.

According to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, Boseman’s role as T’Challa will not be recast in the movie, which has reportedly been “reshaped” to honor the acclaimed actor while “continuing the legacy of Wakanda and…that storyline in a very meaningful, respectful, and yet still hopeful and fun and exciting way.”

“It’s clearly very emotional without Chad,” Feige said in June during an interview with Variety. “But everyone is also very excited to bring the world of Wakanda back to the public and back to the fans. We’re going to do it in a way that would make Chad proud.”

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled to come out in theaters on July 8, 2022.
