Here is the first look at the Black Panther as he will appear in next summer’s Captain America: Civil War. These photos come from location filming in Berlin, and feature Chadwick Boseman‘s stunt double in the Black Panther costume.
Notice the silver accents around the mask and gloves — that’s different from any version of the costume I’m familiar with from the comics.
Panther gets ready to leap into action!
There he goes! Flying by wire!

With a December release date fast approaching, LucasFilm has unleashed a bunch of new images to keep people interested in Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens. This takes some of the sting out the announcement by director J.J. Abrams that there will be no new footage shown at Disney’s D23 Expo this weekend in Anaheim, Calif.

As you can see from the watermarks, the images make their debut in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, covering the Fall movie preview issue.
The big new revelation to me is the identity of Domhnall Gleeson‘s character: General Hux, a cruel leader of The First Order who craves to show the galaxy his might.
The hotly-anticipated film stars newcomers Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Gleeson as General Hux and Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma. Returning stars include: Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Kenny Baker as R2-D2, Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia and Harrison Ford as Han Solo. Oh, and the Millennium Falcon as herself!
