    "Letitia Wright sustained minor injuries today while filming a stunt for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. She is currently receiving care in a local hospital and is expected to be released soon,” a spokesperson told Deadline.

    Sources say that the mishap will not impact filming, which has been underway since late June, primarily in Atlanta.

    While not much is known about the very under-wraps sequel, most of the original cast is expected to return, with the exception of the late Chadwick Boseman.
