Letitia Wright Hospitalized After On Set Accident of Black Panther Sequel

Actress Letitia Write, known for playing Shuri in the 2018 MCU film Black Panther, has reportedly been injured on set of filming the sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and was hospitalized for her injuries. 

Filming for the sequel has been taking place in Boston, MA, where Letitia was said to have been involved with a stunt rig accident that caused her to be rushed to a nearby hospital.

Many were immediately concerned of how severe the injury was and the state of her well being and some were wondering if filming would even resume. A Marvel Spokesperson broke the silence saying:

“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.” 

She has since been released from the hospital.

The film is said to still be on schedule but some are still concerned. The Black Panther series already lost its titular character when actor Chadwick Boseman suddenly passed away a year ago on August 28th, 2020 due to a long battle with Colon Cancer. The series doesn’t need another tragedy.

The character of Shuri has been rumored to become the New Black Panther in the sequel due to Boseman’s passing. Marvel has yet to announce a full synopsis. 

We at PNP wish her a speedy recovery.
