“What we had initially thought were minor injuries turned out to be much more serious with Letitia suffering a critical shoulder fracture, and a concussion with severe side effects.”
“It has been a painful process and Letitia has been home recovering with her doctors and the support of family,” the officials said.
Producers have now pushed the resumption of filming to January 2022 to allow her fully recover.
“We’ve adjusted our production schedule so she has the time she needs to heal, but there’s only so much we can do without Shuri!” the officials added. “We are eagerly awaiting her return and we know we will all come back stronger together.”
Letitia Wright plays Shuri, the Tech-savvy sister of T’Challa ( Late Chadwick Boseman) in the Ryan Coogler directed “Black Panther” sequel.
