Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther costume from Captain America: Civil War on display...

Aside from many costume updates, tweaks and redesigns for the likes of 'Ant-Man', 'Captain America' and the 'Scarlet Witch', one character and costume making its debut in this year's Captain America: Civil War is the Wakandan ruler, 'Black Panther', played by Chadwick Boseman.

His sleek and stealthy costume was photographed on display alongside Elizabeth Olsen's new Scarlet Witch costume at ArcLight Pasadena cinema on April 11, 2016.

From the looks of things, history's first black superhero will side with 'Team Iron Man' in the Civil War that divides Earth's Mightiest Heroes after all the invasions and destruction in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the mind-controlled Hulk and Iron Man's battle in South Africa, forces the government to crack down on superpowered individuals.

Do you know how hard it is to photograph a black costume in dark surroundings behind a reflective display case, very hard. But I did what I could as I know costumers and cosplayers will go as crazy as me for all the detail in this cool screen costume.

Personally I love the African tribal detailing on his mask and the integration of technology which highlights his Wakandan origins, plus the Vibranium metal detailing adorning the suit which is a design nod to the groundbreaking Christopher Priest run on T'Challa's comic book and his panther namesake.

Judianna Makovsky was Costume Designer on this explosive movie directed by Joe and Anthony Russo (and she worked with Ironhead Studios to bring the Black Panther's costume to the big screen), and you can get a closer look at more of her original costumes from Captain America: Civil War right here at Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props.

Fans of the actor can also check out Chadwick Boseman's costume from Get On Up in which he played the legendary Godfather of Soul, 'James Brown'.

I can't wait for this Black Panther to prowl and pounce his way onto the big screen this May, and in his future solo movie.

  2. I really want to know how he gets into it though. Perhaps the best is a separate part that goes over the bodysuit which has a zipper in the back.
