Black Panther Star Letitia Wright was admitted in August after an accident on the set of the new film, and Marvel now says her injuries were “much more serious” than first thought.

Marvel executives on Friday sent a note to the cast and crew on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever announces that production will be halted because Wright is still recovering from injuries sustained in a “scary accident” on the set, and “there is only so much we can do without” her, Deadline reported.

“What we initially thought were minor injuries turned out to be much more serious as Letitia suffered a critical shoulder fracture and a concussion with serious side effects,” said Marvel Studios executives Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito and Nate Moore. “It has been a painful process and Letitia has been at home recovering with her doctors and support from the family.”

When Wright’s accident was announced in August, a Disney spokeswoman said she “sustained minor injuries” while filming a stunt. But earlier this month The Hollywood Reporter said the sequel would soon have to close production as Wright had been improving since September and there were no more recordings that could be filmed without her on the set. Wright plays Shuri, the sister of Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa, and may have a bigger role in Wakanda forever after Boseman’s death. In their Friday memo, Marvel executives called the crash a “reminder of the importance of safety at all times in our work.”

This comes afterwards The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Wright has not been vaccinated against COVID-19, which may make it difficult for her to get to the Atlanta set from London, where she has been recovering, given CDC rules requiring proof of vaccination for non-nationals, traveling into the United States. Friday’s note, however, said that “at the moment, we are scheduled to resume filming – with Letitia – in January 2022.” The film is currently slated to premiere in November 2022.
