"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 for Marvel told Deadline.com on Wednesday.

The on-set source revealed the incident was minor and will not have an impact on the film's shooting schedule.

Most of the cast from the original film, including Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong'o, Florence Kasumba and Angela Bassett are returning for the sequel, directed by Ryan Coogler.

Chadwick Boseman, who played the title character in the 2018 blockbuster, lost his battle with cancer a year ago.

The Black Panther sequel is set for a July 8, 2022 release.
