As production continues in Berlin on the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War, new photos from the set have emerged, giving us our first look at the Black Panther in action, along with Captain America and The Winter Soldier. Unfortunately, these photos don't feature Chadwick Boseman, Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan, but these images from The Daily Mail do tease some intriguing action. The scene was filmed atop a Berlin, Germany building known as ICC Messedamm, which is rumored to be doubling for United Nations headquarters in Vienna, Austria.
We know that Captain America: Civil War takes place in the aftermath of Avengers: Age of Ultron, where another "international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage." This leads to "a system of accountability and a governing body" to be put in place, which will determine when to bring in Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Yesterday, a report surfaced that revealed this incident features Captain America and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) trying to track down the villainous Crossbones (Frank Grillo), who sets off a suicide bomb that levels a large building.
As for Black Panther, producer Kevin Feige revealed that Chadwick Boseman's T'challa is just starting to become Black Panther, because his father T'chaka, the current ruler of Wakanda, is getting older. There have been rumors that T'chaka will either pass away or retire as the Wakandan ruler, which will lead into the stand alone Black Panther movie. The producer added that Black Panther was brought on to offer a new perspective on the situation, aside from the assembled Avengers, and that both T'challa and T'chaka come to realize that they can't just hide in Wakanda anymore.
The massive cast also includes Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Daniel Brühl, William Hurt and Martin Freeman. Production is expected to run until mid-September, but it isn't known if the sequel will shift to another location again, or if the remainder of their shoot will be in Berlin.
While we wait for more details on Captain America: Civil War, check out the latest photos from the set. Hopefully we'll get our first look at Chadwick Boseman himself on the Berlin set sometime in the near future, but we'll have to wait and see. Do you think we'll get to see Black Panther engaging in a fight scene in the next wave of set photos?
