Letitia Wright was hospitalized Wednesday following an accident on the set of the upcoming film 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 in a statement to Deadline.

The incident happened during a shoot in Boston, although principal photography is taking place in Atlanta.

According to published reports, Wright was injured during a mishap involving a stunt rig — which allows stunt doubles and actors to fly through the air, skid on the ground and float in space.

Wednesday’s incident is not expected to delay the film’s shooting schedule.

Wright is reprising her role as Shuri — the younger sister to T’Challa — played by the late Chadwick Boseman. Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba and Angela Bassett also star in the film.

Ryan Coogler is returning to write and direct the film.

In May, Marvel announced the title of the sequel and said it will arrive in theaters on July 8, 2022.
