Get a good look at Black Panther fighting Bucky in Captain America: Civil War

Marvel hero Black Panther will make his big-screen debut as part of Captain America: Civil War (opens in new tab), but we still haven't seen much of the leader of Wakanda in action. Until recently, that is. A new TV spot (opens in new tab) shows the hero clawing at Cap's shield, and film directors Anthony and Joe Russo recently shared a set photo on Instagram, showing Panther attacking the man formerly known as The Winter Soldier, Bucky Barnes.

Judging by Bucky's clothes and the backpack nearby, I'd wager this is shortly after T'Challa (Panther's real name) catches Bucky while the latter is escaping via motorcycle. Barnes is a wanted man, and it looks like he won't be going in without a fight. That's fine by me if it means getting to see more of these newcomers to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Directed by Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, and starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chadwick Boseman, Tom Holland, Anthony Mackie, and Sebastian Stan, Captain America: Civil War opens in UK cinemas on April 29, 2016 and May 6, 2016 in the US.
