Letitia Wright, ‘Black Panther’ Star, Released From Hospital
Letitia Wright, one of the stars of Black Panther, has been released from hospital following a stunt-related injury that happened on set.
Marvel assured fans that the only injuries that occurred were minor, but that the actress still needed medical attention.
The injury took place when Wright was using a stunt rig when filming for the upcoming Black Panther sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Stunt rigging is a commonly used art form in the creation of Marvel movies that allows the actors to fly, float, and skid to appear like the superheroes that they portray.
Stunt rigging is generally safe, but like everything, it does come with its dangers, and Marvel would never put their actors in harm’s way.
Wright was released just hours after being admitted to the hospital for the injury, so it seems as though Marvel wanted to air on the side of caution for her injuries.
Wright is set to reprise her role of Shuri, T’Challa’s sister and princess of Wakanda, in the sequel after appearing in the first installment in the Black Panther franchise, as well as Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: End Game.
With the devastating loss of Chadwick Boseman, it is unknown what the storyline will be for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and who will take the mantle of the Black Panther if not T’Challa.
Rumors have been circulating the internet that it will be Wright, as Shuri, who will now be the successor of Black Panther, but nothing has been confirmed.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on July 8th, 2022.
