New Civil War Promo Art Sees Black Panther Battle Captain America
Instead of merely counting its coins from all the money coming in thanks to the insane box office performance of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney is instead ramping up marketing for next spring's big release: Captain America Civil War. The studio has just leaked some new promo art, scooped by Hablamos de Marvel, that gives us perhaps our best look yet at the Black Panther, and also suggests that he'll be going toe-to-toe with Cap in the film.

Maybe the most notable thing about the photo, besides how awesome it is, is that T'Challa's claws actually manage to scrape Cap's shield. Since we know both are made of Vibranium, we're left to assume that Black Panther gets the top quality Vibranium since he is the ruler of Wakanda, the nation where the indestructible metal comes from.

In addition to that photo, there are also pics showing off Team Cap and Team Stark, seen below.


In these photos, we get a pretty good look at the MCU's version of Red Wing, Falcon's bird in the comics who will be a drone in the movies. We also see Sharon Carter included on Team Cap, so it will be good to see her in action in a significant way in the film. However, it looks like she's taken the spot of Scarlet Witch, who's missing from the photo. Ant-Man though, is in the photo, despite being absent from the film's trailer. Also notable is the prime real estate given to Black Panther on Team Stark, suggesting that he may have a bigger role to play in the film than we previously thought. And of course, still no Spider-Man sighting.

These new pics look pretty awesome, especially Black Panther, and have us more excited than ever for this movie. Now let's just hope it ends up being more like Winter Soldier and less like Age of Ultron.
