Just last year, production on “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” was temporarily shut down. This was to give Letitia Wright time to recover from an on-set injury. She was hospitalized in August for minor injuries after a stunt went wrong on set in Boston.

Meanwhile, the studio had first reported her injuries will have not an effect on the scheduled release of the film. However in November 2021, they opened up on the severity of her injuries

“As you are all aware, Letitia had a frightening accident on our set during a stunt back in August,” Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito and Nate Moore wrote in a message to the movie’s cast and crew.

“It has been a painful process and Letitia has been home recovering with her doctors and the support of family,” the officials said.

The release of the second “Black Panther” instalment is billed for November 11.
