‘Captain America: Civil War’ Set Photo Reveals Our First Good Look at Black Panther
Spider-Man isn’t the only character making his (rebooted) debut in Captain America: Civil War. Lest you forget, Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther will be putting in an appearance ahead of his own solo movie. Last year’s promotional photo from Marvel gave us a sneak peek at the character’s appearance, but a new spy photo from the set gives us a better idea of what Boseman’s superhero will look like.
Via Birth.Movies.Death, an Instagram user posted this photo from the set of Captain America: Civil War, featuring Boseman’s T’Challa / Black Panther and Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier:
Although the photo is a little blurry, you can see the severe look they’re going for with Black Panther — his costume is entirely black, broken up with some banding and silver details. His mask features some pretty fierce little cat ears, and the entire costume from his head to the tip of his boots looks like one piece, which is pretty impressive.
What’s notable about this photo — aside from our first peek at Black Panther in costume — is that he’s walking with Bucky. Rumors about the film’s plot indicate that Black Panther and Winter Soldier are at odds with one another and on opposing sides of the titular Civil War, while it’s also been rumored that Bucky may be responsible in some way for the death of T’Challa’s father, T’Chaka. Perhaps it was an unfortunate misunderstanding?
