At the end of August we learned that Letitia Wright had to be admitted to a hospital after receiving minor injuries that occurred in an accident during the filming of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Where exactly did the accident occur? In Boston on August 25. This may seem strange to some since most Marvel movies are shot in Atlanta. The point is that some cities were filmed in said Massachusetts city and that’s where that happened.

At the time, we learned of that fact from a Marvel spokesperson, who revealed this situation to the media with the following statement:
Letitia Wright sustained minor injuries while filming an action sequence for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. She is currently receiving care at a local hospital and is expected to be discharged soon.
The thing is, Marvel is a company that loves to busily keep all information about its productions. They are known to guard the secrets of the plot with the same zeal with which Smaug guards the gold from the dwarves of Erebor. Basically that is what characterizes the MCU; they save and release the information in a dropper to surprise viewers, but also so that we do not know what could happen in future films. The ways of the MCU are varied and mysterious, but the studio does everything possible so that we do not find out anything.

The problem is that, in reality, they not only hide information about the plot, but also details of all kinds about the production. For example, everything related to the wound of Letitia wright. The reality is that they have kept their lips closed as to how the actress did in the hospital and how she recovered.
Luckily, not everyone has had that attitude. Angela Bassett just updated us on Wright’s health. It should be remembered that they not only played mother and daughter in the first film about the hero of Wakanda, but they have had a close relationship, due to their participation in the MCU together. For the same reason, if anyone knows what happened in the hospital, it is Bassett. And the secret was not kept. He revealed how the young actress is doing in an interview for ET Online:
She had a little fall, but it’s not too bad. You know, anything like that is going to put you down a bit, but she’s just a slight, tiny little thing. But she’s fine now and ready to go.
In other words, we can infer that the accident was not a really serious thing and that it did not affect the shooting of the film too much. In any case, we will have to wait for Marvel to release an official statement on this situation, if it does. With them you never know. The truth is that it is more likely that Wright talk about it in a future interview.
On the other hand, Angela Bassett, who plays Queen Ramonda, mother of T’Challa, not long ago spoke of the lack that the late Chadwick Boseman has done to them. She had a conversation with The Guardian. She said that the presence of the late actor could be felt on set, but it should be clarified that she did not say it in a supernatural sense. He said it in the sense that they were honoring his memory during filming. Here his words:
We all felt, the first week of filming, the presence of Chadwick and we missed him on the throne, but we all came together and just paid tribute to him before we started, which was wonderful. Everyone just speaking beautiful words about him and expressing how much we care, that he has changed us and that he has inspired us.
