Marvel has opened up about the severity of ‘Black Panther’ star Letitia Wright’s on-set injuries.
In a new letter signed by Marvel’s President Kevin Feige, the injuries that were originally believed to be minor were more critical than originally reported.
According to Feige, the British star suffered a “critical shoulder fracture and a concussion with severe side effects.”
Earlier this month, it was reported that filming for the “Black Panther” sequel, “Wakanda Forever,” was temporarily halted until early 2022 as a result of Wright’s injuries, sustained from an accidental fall while performing a stunt in September.
Feige said of the actress’ recovery progress.
The actress Letitia Wright who stars as Shuri, King T’Challa’s tech-savvy sister, in the award-winning film will reportedly take on a much bigger role in the sequel, hence the temporal pause in filming.
Wright and the team are set to resume filming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in January 2022.
