Before Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff and Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa joined forces in Captain America: Civil War, she had to feel him out first. Though their initial meeting at the signing of the Sokovia Accords was amicable—until the explosion, that is—a deleted scene from the Marvel movie shows a sparring of words after she realizes she underestimated him.
The scene, which was revealed by USA Today, takes place after Black Panther, Captain America, The Winter Soldier, and Falcon had that very public tumble that bled into the streets. Sitting in a room under U.S. custody, Widow approaches the new King of Wakanda for what he calls a “psychological evaluation.”
“So I guess when you said you’d do it yourself, it meant you’d do it yourself,” she says, which is an interesting concept: placing someone whose job has been to skirt the truth against someone who is truthful in a very literal sense. Watch it below:
It’s unclear why this particular clip was cut from the film, considering it offers playful banter between the two characters, acknowledges Panther’s suit is a vibranium weave, and also gives the audience a taste of his political power — even though his actions should’ve placed him under the authority of the Accords committee, he was able to secure extradition.
Nevertheless, this clip will be featured on the Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray release alongside other deleted scenes, a gag reel, and that Team Thor video shown at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year. Some of the other bonus material includes audio commentary from directors Joe and Anthony Russo, a documentary on the making of the film, and a sneak peek at Doctor Strange.
The film Digital HD, Digital 3D and Disney Movies Anywhere on September 2nd and Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on September 13th.
