New Captain America: Civil War Deleted Scene Reveals Black Panther's Original Plan
A new deleted scene from Captain America: Civil War has just dropped, and it not only fills in some sort of gap, but adds another wrinkle to T'Challa's revenge mission in his auspicious debut:



In the scene, Natasha confronts T'Challa about going all vigilante on them during the epic freeway fight, and he admits that he doesn't want to cooperate with the U.S. government. Then, Martin Freeman's bureaucrat Everett Ross announces that T'Challa has been granted extradition rights for Bucky, whom he believes killed his father.

Apparently, before Winter Soldier escaped from custody, Black Panther was going to bring him back to Wakanda with him, presumably to be executed through legal means. It makes sense that they would cut this, since it makes Black Panther's relatively simple motivations—to kill Bucky out of revenge—a little more complicated. However, it would have been interesting if they had kept it in as well, both because it develops the compelling dynamic between T'Challa and Natasha, and because it makes T'Challa seem a little more even-handed.

Captain America: Civil War comes out on Blu-ray on September 13. It includes commentary and many special features, including bloopers, more deleted scenes, and that hilarious short about what Thor and Hulk were up to during Civil War.
