Crew member Dies In An Accident On Set Of Marvel’s ‘Wonder Man’

There was an accident on set Tuesday morning at the Marvel Studies ‘Wonder Man’ movie…

According to dateline, the man was a rigger who fell from the rafters-his name was not made public. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, will be the investigating body.

“Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with his family and friends, and our support is behind the investigation into the circumstances of this accident,” a Marvel spokesperson said in a statement.  

While crew injuries and deaths on film and television sets have historically been underreported, there have been several fatalities in recent years that have resulted in high-profile lawsuits and calls for industry reforms.  

They include the 2021 fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the movie “Rust,” when a gun that actor Alec Baldwin was pointing at her went off, and the 2014 death of Sarah Jones, a 27-year-old camera assistant killed in a train accident on the set of the movie “Midnight Rider.”

Between 1990 and 2014, at least 43 people died on sets in the U.S. and more than 150 were left with life-altering injuries, according to a 2016 report by The Associated Press.
