Marvel Studios’ concept artist Andy Park unveiled an early design for Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War.
Before the release of the highly-successful Black Panther, the future king of Wakanda made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War. Now, Marvel Studios’ Director of Visual Development Andy Park has shared a close-up photo of his own design for the hero.
In the caption included with the post, Andy Park notes that the final design was ultimately illustrated by Ryan Meinerding, but some of the elements from his version were incorporated into the final Black Panther suit. Park also noted that he was happy to contribute to a character as iconic as Black Panther.
Check out the photo in the post below.

Chadwick Boseman is set to reprise his role as King T’Challa in the highly-anticipated Black Panther sequel. Written and directed by Ryan Coogler, the sequel is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 6, 2022. In the meantime, fans can re-watch the first film on all home media formats:
Marvel Studios “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Directed by Ryan Coogler from a script he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B.
