Letitia Wing suffered minor injuries while filming on set for “Black Panther 2”.


Actress Letitia Wing sustained the injury Wednesday, a Marvel spokesperson said to CBS News. Wright was treated at a Boston hospital and released shortly afterward.

Deadline first reported the news. Boston was the location of the incident, which is far from where it took place. “Wakanda Forever” is the sequel to the 2018 blockbuster “Black Panther,” which starred the late Chadwick Boseman as the lead.

Wright’s representatives did not immediately respond to CBS News’ request for comment.

Wright, 27, is reprising her role as Shuri, princess of Wakanda and sister of King T’Challa. Danai Ginra, Lupita Nyongo, and Winston Duke will star with her. The film, which is directed by Ryan Coogler, is scheduled to be released on July 8, 2022.

Wright acknowledged last year that it was difficult for him to make the sequel after Boseman’s passing.

“The thought of doing it without him is kinda strange,” she told Net-A-Porter. We are just grieving right now, and it is trying to find light within the darkness. “
