The actress was hurt Wednesday while filming a stunt on the set of the upcoming Marvel sequel, EW has confirmed.

She has since been released, and the incident isn't expected to have an impact on Wakanda Forever's filming schedule.

Wright is one of several Black Panther actors returning for the sequel, reprising her role as T'Challa's brilliant sister, Shuri.
