Black Panther made his long awaited first but brief sneak peek appearance in the Captain America: Civil War teaser trailer. Two new images of the Marvel icon played by Chadwick Boseman have been revealed via Entertainment Weekly, which devotes this week’s cover story to the third solo big screen chapter for the First Avenger.
In the cover story interview, Boseman uncovers some secrets about the super suit worn by Black Panther (T’Challa, King of Wakanda) which ties it to same metal Captain America’s shield is made of.
“The vibranium is a metal that is dynamic. It can change how it’s used. It’s not a liquid, but it has the ability to change shape and change form and still have its strength. I think there a lot of things about that in the mythology that I think has a lot of potential in terms of the storytelling… It’s not just about being durable, it has the ability to absorb energy. It’s not just like you hit it and it doesn’t take it. It has the ability to absorb the attack of another person and repel or respond to that attack. That’s part of the power.”
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and set for May 6th, 2016, Captain America: Civil War‘s all star Marvel line-up includes Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Paul Bettany (The Vision), Emily VanCamp (Agent 13), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Frank Grillo (Cross Bones), William Hurt (“Thunderbolt” Ross), Daniel Brühl (Baron Zemo), Martin Freeman and (still off the record) Tom Holland as Spider-Man.
