Actor Chadwick Boseman is all set to make his Marvel superhero debut as Black Panther, in Captain America: Civil War. The first-ever live action version of the comic book hero was seen in the recently released trailer of Captain America 3 and fans are quite excited about his look and costume.
Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with Boseman, who revealed new details about the Black Panther costume. "You don't have as much vision in the peripheral. Your peripheral vision is definitely skewed, and it's gritty, so you have this gritty, tinted view. You can see enough," stated the actor who will don the suit again soon when he starts filming for the solo Black Panther flick.
Interestingly, Black Panther's costume is made of vibranium (as per the comic books) — the same material used for Captain America's powerful shield. "I think, as far as the mythology is concerned, vibranium is dynamic, it can change how it's used. It's not a liquid, but it has the ability to change shape and change form and still retain its strength."
Talking about the on-field value of the suit, Boseman added, "It has the ability to absorb the attack of another person that is part of the suit's power. He does have other weapons that come out, and he definitely has claws you can see, but other than that, I'm not going to reveal anything."
Captain America: Civil War releases on 6 May 2016 while the Black Panther solo film is slated to release on 16 February 2018.
