Here’s Your First Official Look at Crossbones, T’Challa, and More From ‘Captain America: Civil War’

We’ve got some brand new information regarding the upcoming Marvel blockbuster


We already knew that Captain America: Civil War is on track to be the greatest Marvel movie yet, but the latest issue of Empire Magazine is certainly reassuring. A full feature on the follow-up to 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier provides us with brand new photos from the film, details regarding a few mystery characters, and how the Russo brothers are fully prepared for the ramifications after audiences witness the conclusion of their film. 

“The consequences of Civil War will have an even more significant impact [than The Winter Soldier],” the Russos said to Empire Magazine. In Civil War, we’re going to change the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Psychology, and it’s an extreme shift.” “Winter Soldier was a political thriller; this is a psychological thriller.” 

This is our first look at the unmasked T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), the African prince of fictional Wakanda who aligns himself with ‘Team Iron Man.’ This is Boseman’s first appearance in a five- picture deal he’s secured with Marvel. (Photo: Empire Magazine)
Elizabeth Olsen returns as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, one of the newest Avengers and most conflicted member of the team. Her inner demons will certainly shape the film’s plot as she deals with the death of her twin, Pietro, while harnessing her powers for good. Will she choose the right side or end up in the same position as her brother by the film’s end? (Photo: Empire Magazine)
While an appearance by Gwenyth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts has been confirmed, the more interesting casting confirmation comes in the form of Martin Freeman. ‘The Hobbit’ star will be playing Everett Ross, an important member of the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre and vital player in the ‘Black Panther’ world. No word of how much he’ll be used come May, but the reaction of Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) as she stands alongside him appears he won’t be delivering any good news. (Photo: Empire Magazine)
