Letitia Wright was hurt yesterday while performing a stunt for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. A spokesman for the Marvel film tells Variety that the 27-year-old British actress was taken to the hospital with light injuries after an incident involving a piece of equipment.


While the details of what happened and her condition remain unclear, the outspoken Believer appears to be in good shape and that spokesman added she was "expected to be released soon." Another indicator that this is not overly serious is that the film's production schedule will apparently not be impacted, according to Variety.


Wright starred in the 2018 box office hit Black Panther as Shuri, the sister of the eponymous lead character played by Chadwick Boseman (he died last August of colon cancer and his role will not be recast for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever). Though there's no public word about the details of the plot of the sequel, which is set to release in July, 2022, Wright will be reprising the role of Shuri. In the meantime, please join us in praying for her full and speedy recovery.
