Angela Bassett shared an update on Letitia Wright after suffering an injury on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Black Panther: Wakana Forever has been filming for a few months now, primarily in Atlanta. While we don’t know much from the Marvel film, one of the biggest stories coming from the production was Letitia Wright’s injury after performing a stunt.

Letitia Wright suffered minor injuries and was hospitalized as a result. As Black Panther: Wakanda Forever continues filming, Entertainment Tonight caught up with Angela Basset at the Emmys, who shared an update on Wright after her injury:

“She had a little bit of a fall, but it’s not too bad. You know, anything like that will shake you up, but she’s just a little, slight, little petite thing. But she is fine and ready to go.”

Later on in the interview, Angela Basset also talked about the love and care going into Black Panther: Wakanda Forever:

“We’re excited about [Black Panther 2]. Of course, we still have a little, you know, we feel some kind of way in our heart, of course. So every day is just a testament and a love fest for our dear [Chadwick Boseman]. We still have Ryan [Coogler] and Joe Robert Cole, who wrote Black Panther 1, so the two of them, these men, these brothers, they’re going to bring it. They love Black Panther, they love what they started. As they say, ‘Finish the way you started.’ They started great and they’re going to do this one well as well.”

Here is the synopsis for the first Black Panther film:

After the death of his father, the king of Wakanda, young T’Challa returns home to the isolated high-tech African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king – and Black Panther – is tested when he’s drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, he must release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will hit theaters on July 8, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content!
