Actress Letitia Wright was reportedly briefly hospitalized in Boston on Wednesday following minor injuries sustained during an incident on the set of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”.
The extent of her injuries was not released, but the incident was said to involve a stunt rig. The actress was released from the hospital before 1pm US-PT.
The stunt rig incident happened in Boston, but the production is based in Atlanta and the event will not have an impact on the film’s current production schedule.
Wright is reprising her role as fan-favorite Shuri, the younger, brilliant sister of T’Challa (the late Chadwick Boseman). Ryan Coogler will direct from a script he penned alongside Joe Robert Cole.
Some new set photos of Wright and Danai Gurira, who plays Okoye, have been snapped by TMZ and can be seen below. “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is slated for release July 8th 2022.
