A crew member has died following an on-set accident during the production of Marvel’s “Wonder Man” TV show.
The accident occurred Tuesday morning at Radford Studio Center in Los Angeles when a rigger fell from the rafters on a sound stage.
According to Deadline, the crew member was working on “Wonder Man” for Marvel Studios but the show was not being filmed at the time.
The show had faced delays because of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes last year but was ramping back up to finish production.
No other information about the victim was released.
“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 Studios spokesperson said.
The show stars “Watchmen” actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as the titular superhero character. Ben Kingsley is also set to reprise his role from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. No release date has been set, but the series will stream on Disney+.
Several on-set deaths have occurred in recent years. In 2014, a camera assistant was struck by a train and killed while making the Greg Allman biopic “Midnight Rider” in Georgia. Alec Baldwin is currently facing involuntary manslaughter charges in New Mexico for the 2021 fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust.”
Both incidents led to lawsuits.
Since 1990, at least 47 deaths, 180 hospitalizations and more than 250 sinema overall production accidents have occurred during U.S. productions, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
