Marvel fans are abuzz today over a slew of recently leaked photos that give us our first peek of a new superhero straight from the set of Captain America: Civil War.
Photos surfaced on Instagram today of actor Chadwick Boseman and his stunt double filming sequences alongside Chris Evans’s Captain America in what will constitute the Black Panther’s first appearance in film. Also spotted on set is Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes.
The Black Panther’s costume looks exactly like it has in Marvel’s concept art, so there’s no real surprise here except for how exciting it is to see the new character before his official debut. Black Panther is the superhero alter ego of T’Challa, King of Wakanda, the fictional, vibranium-rich African nation in Marvel comics. He was first introduced in Fantastic Four #52 in July, 1966 and is considered the first black superhero. After appearing in Civil War, the character will get his own movie installment with 2018’s Black Panther.
