Black panther gets in between cap and tony in new ‘civil war’ image
You’ve no doubt fawned over the amazing Black Panther concept art first revealed at Marvel’s bonkers Phase 3 press event last year, and you definitely caught a glimpse of him kicking the Winter Soldier right in the face during last week’s awesome new “Captain America: Civil War” trailer.
The hero of Wakanda won’t lead a solo film until 2018, but judging by how much of him we’ve already seen in the lead-up to “Civil War,” there’s no doubt he’s going to be a big part of the upcoming movie. Case in point? On the new cover of Entertainment Weekly, T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) is front and center behind Iron Man and Captain America, and dang does that costume look fierce in the flesh.
We know that T’Challa will eventually end up on Iron Man’s team (remember how he was kicking the Winter Soldier in the face?), but it’s exciting to see him so prominently featured in the promotional materials — after all, we’ve been waiting a long time to see him brought to life, and we’re gonna have to wait even longer for him to get his own film. At least he’ll be kicking butt in the meantime!
“Captain America: Civil War” hits theaters May 6, 2016.
