Actress Letitia Wright was hospitalized Tuesday night after suffering a minor injury during filming for the Black Panther sequel, 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,” a spokesperson for Marvel said Wednesday, as reported by Variety.
The injury does not appear to have affected the sequel’s filming schedule. Wright has since been released from the hospital, Deadline reported.
Wright will reprise her role as Shuri, the inventor and younger sister of T’Challa, played by the late Chadwick Boseman.
Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba and Angela Bassett are all returning for the sequel.
In June it was announced that I May Destroy You creator and Emmy-nominated actress Michaela Coel will appear in the sequel, but her exact role remains unknown at this time.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is slated to hit theaters on July 8, 2022.
