Let that sink in. Next month (well, if you live in the United States. Some lucky ducks get it earlier) we will be basking
and probably weeping in the glory of Captain America: Civil War.
I still don’t know if I’m ready. Seriously, who’s ever prepared to see two of their favorite superheros butting heads in an all out war? Don’t lie to yourself, I have a feeling we’re going to be reeling for quite a while from the aftermath of this movie.
In the latest TV spots for Civil War, we’ve seen a few more new snippets of scenes. For example, Natasha and Clint interacting in a way I’d only expect them to: fighting yet at the same time being snarky to each other. And we’ve seen Black Panther aka T’Challa going after Steve and his vibranium shield.
Speaking of Black Panther, I’m so excited to see this character come to life on the big screen as well as Chadwick Boseman’s performance. I loved him in 42 as Jackie Robinson so I can’t wait to see what he does with this role and to see him rock that suit.
Back in December, Boseman spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the suit, which aside from the shoes, felt claustrophobic to him. Yet it’s still incredible when you think about the suit as a whole.
“As far as the storytelling is concerned, the vibranium is a metal that 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 have its strength. I think there a lot of things about that in the mythology that I think has a lot of potential in terms of the storytelling,” Boseman explained.
“It’s not just about being durable, it has the ability to absorb energy. It’s not just like you hit it and it doesn’t take it. It has the ability to absorb the attack of another person and repel or respond to that attack. That’s part of the power,” he continued.
Oh, my comic book loving heart is so happy. Also YES! to these actors digging deep and really researching their characters.
And just this past Monday, the Russo brothers posted a photo to their Instagram showing a behind the scenes look at a certain fight scene between Black Panther and Bucky.
Side note: say what you want, but I hope Bucky comes out alright…well, as alright as he can be factoring in everything that’s happened…after this movie. I need to see more of this character developed and Sebastian Stan has done one hell of a job as Bucky and The Winter Soldier.
I always enjoy typing up posts like this because I can honestly talk endlessly about comic books and their movie counterparts. Comic book nerd and proud!
Until next time, fellow comic book nerds, check out one of the latest TV spot trailers below and as always leave me your thoughts in the comments!
