The scene from Captain America: Civil War where Black Panther first appears was shown during Disney’s annual shareholders’ meeting and nowhere else, and it’s doubtful any of those shareholders sneaked in cameras to bootleg it for the rest of us. Fortunately, a reporter from the LA Times was also there, and he described the scene as thoroughly as he could. As for the pictures, time to use your imaginations:
The clip started off with a car chase featuring a motorcycle and a black Audi SUV. The chase involved Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie). They pursued each other through a tunnel, which became engulfed in explosions generated by the skirmish.
Eventually, the characters emerged from the tunnel, only to be met by War Machine (Don Cheadle). It appeared as though he was on the scene to detain Captain America.
“Stand down now,” War Machine angrily told the captain. “Congratulations, Cap, you’re a criminal.”
Black Panther then intervened, baring his metal claws and ripping off his mask to reveal his identity.
It’s reported that the clip was not complete at the time of screening and was missing special effects. They’ve got about two months to fix that. Captain America: Civil War heads to theaters May 6. Black Panther will eventually be the star of his own movie, which is currently scheduled for early 2018.
