A sequel to Black Panther has reportedly shutdown for a month for star actor, Letitia Wright to recover from an on-set injury.

Wright, who played Shuri in the Marvel superhero movie, was taken to hospital with minor injuries after she hurt herself while filming a stunt in Boston in August, Sky News reports.

According to Hollywood Reporter, the 'Wakanda Forever' director Ryan Coogler has filmed all the scenes he can without the British actress and production on the film will stop later this month before restarting in early 2022.

A representative for Wright told the outlet: "Letitia has been recovering in London since September from injuries sustained on the set of Black Panther 2 and is looking forward to returning to work early 2022.

"Letitia kindly asks that you keep her in your prayers."

The pause in production is not expected to affect the film's November 2022 release.

Wright, who was born in Guyana before moving to London when she was young, played the sister of the late Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa in Black Panther.

Boseman died in August 2020 following a four-year battle with cancer, which he kept private. He was 43.
