Posted on

Marvel Entertainment

We’ve seen Black Widow vs. Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch vs. Vision, and Iron Man vs. The Winter Soldier, but the latest Captain America: Civil War TV spot previews the face-off between Black Panther and the star-spangled Avenger. 

Played by Chadwick Boseman, the royal from Wakanda’s main weapon is his vibranium-weaved suit and claws, which are seen grabbing hold of Cap’s vibranium shield. Elsewhere, the spot features new looks at Falcon flying in and asking someone off camera, “How long are you going to play both sides?”

Co-director Anthony Russo told EW described Black Panther’s suit as “medieval chain mail,” while Boseman called it “dynamic.” The actor explained, “It’s not just about being durable, it has the ability to absorb energy. It’s not just like you hit it and it doesn’t take it. It has the ability to absorb the attack of another person and repel or respond to that attack. That’s part of the power.”

Boseman will debut in the character in Civil War on May 6 before headling director Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, set for release on July 6, 2018.
