With the third and final superhero movie of the year having opened in theaters last weekend, the genre is at a close for 2015. However, if you thought three superhero movies was a lot, Hollywood’s about to double down on the genre and then some with seven superhero films slated for release in 2016. One of the biggest is Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, which is currently in production in Atlanta. We saw quite a few images from the set when filming first began, but things have been quiet on the set photo front for the past few months—until now.
We know that Civil War will give us the first appearance of Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, who’s getting his own Marvel movie in November 2017, and now we have our first look at the costume in action by way of a new set photo. It’s very close to the concept art that Marvel first unveiled for the character last year, and it appears that he’s part of some action sequence involving Chris Evans’ Captain America and Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier.
Take a look at the photo below (via BMD). Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters on May 6, 2016 and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Paul Rudd, Anthony Mackie, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, William Hurt, Martin Freeman, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, and Frank Grillo.
Also, here’s Black Panther unmasked with presumably Boseman’s stunt double cooling off:
