'Black Panther' actress Letitia Wright has been hospitalised with minor injuries after a stunt rig accident on the set of the sequel titled '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 variety.com.

The film shoot was happening overnight in Boston, while the production for the 'Black Panther' sequel is based in Atlanta. There is currently no impact on the movie's shooting schedule.

In the first 'Black Panther' movie, Wright was introduced as Shuri, the genius inventor and younger sister to T'Challa, played by the late Chadwick Boseman. Black Panther became a global hit when it was released in 2018, grossing over $1.3 billion worldwide. The film became the first superhero film to be nominated for Best Film at the Oscars, and took home three trophies for original score, costume design and production design.

Apart from the awards and commercial success, the film signifies a culture shift in the superhero narrative, with the world becoming more diverse.

Meanwhile, Letitia Wright also appeared in the MCU team-up films 'Avengers: Infinity War' and 'Avengers: Endgame'.

Production on 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever', directed by Ryan Coogler, began in June 2021. The plot and cast details are being kept under wraps. 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' is scheduled to release on July 8, 2022.
