I think we can all agree that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever had a pretty grueling production that was plagued with several setbacks, controversies, and a shocking on-set mishap involving the film's lead star Letitia Wright. While performing a motorcycle stunt for the MCU blockbuster in late 2021, the actress sustained a serious injury that resulted in filming getting halted temporarily.

Thankfully, Letitia was able to recuperate and finish the film but to producer Nate Moore, it was a horrific event that admittedly, he feels responsible for. During a roundtable event hosted by The Hollywood Reporter, the Marvel Studios VP of Production & Development recalled the on-set incident and pretty much blamed himself for what transpired.

Moore says: "Look, I mean, it’s no secret that Panther was a tough one to get to screen, but the scariest moment was actually when Tish (Letitia Wright) got injured. So we were shooting some second unit work, some stunt work in Boston, and actually, the full crew was still in Atlanta. So I got a call in the middle of the night from the ambulance. And that is terrifying, because it’s not just about the movie at that point, now about the person, and a person I’ve known for years. And as a producer, you feel responsible for everybody in your crew, so you feel responsible for having her in that position in the first place."

Well, accidents are "inevitable" and there's really no one to blame for what happened to Letitia because there are things beyond anyone's control. The good thing is nothing catastrophic transpired and the actress was able to fulfill her destiny as the new Black Panther.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is heading to Disney+ on February 1, 2023.
