Black Panther Features in New Captain America: Civil War Images
We're still trying to wrap our heads around the bromantic heartbreak from the Captain America: Civil War trailer (thanks Adele), and the question of who is 'right' in Marvel's superhero showdown will likely trouble us right up until the movie's May 2016 release. But it wasn't just Avengers divided that got our heads in a spin last week, because the Civil War trailer also gave us our first look at Marvel's newest superhero, Black Panther. 

Following on from his on screen debut, Black Panther now appears alongside the two headline stars of Civil War in new images released by Entertainment Weekly. 


I'm personally not a big fan of what EW has done with their cover here. Sure, adding 'Meow' might seem cute, but it doesn't fit in with the artwork at all. This is nothing compared to the text further down the page, though. The line "He's tall, powerful–and has claws that a Real Housewife would envy is a cheap shot that just doesn't really belong. Plus, when will Marvel employ someone who can actually use photoshop?

Artwork gripes aside, EW's newest issue sees Chris Evans reveal that, unlike most superhero movies, Civil War will see audiences struggling to pick out exactly who the bad guys are. 

Opening quote
In most of the movies, there's no question who we should be siding with. We all agree Nazis are bad, aliens from space are bad. But this movie's the first time where you really have two points of view. It becomes a question of morality and I don't think [Cap] has ever been so uncertain with what right and wrong is.
