CGI superhero costumes have gotten a terrible reputation, mostly because they've all looked terrible. (Remember when Ryan Reynolds poked fun at his Green Lantern costume in Deadpool?) But if there's anything Captain America: Civil War taught us, it's that CGI superhero costumes can actually look pretty great, since half the time we forgot that Black Panther's suit was animated:



The VFX reel focuses heavily on Black Panther's costume, probably because they relied on practical effects for much of the film (although that entirely animated plane is pretty crazy). The Black Panther suit is effective precisely because it looks realistic, rather than actually animated. The costume Chadwick Boseman wore isn't entirely different, except that it's not nearly as cool. 

Captain America: Civil War is now out on Blu-ray.
