New Concept Art Shows Off Unused Design For Chadwick Boseman’s ‘Black Panther’

New concept art from Black Panther reveals an unused helmet design for Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther features some of the most intricately designed costumes and suits in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and new concept art from the film shows off one of the unused helmets for Chadwick Boseman. Black Panther was given a new suit following his debut in Captain America: Civil War, with his sister Shuri gifting him a nanotech vibranium suit that folds away into his necklace.

Ryan Meinerding, the Head of Visual Development of Marvel Studios, revealed the alternate design for Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa on Instagram, showcasing the different textures in the helmet. The new art also shows how much vibranium is weaved into the suit, featuring even heavier detailing across the head, the mouth and the eyes. There’s also different texture around the nose, eyes and mouth than the suit we saw in the film. Take a look at the alternate design for Chadwick Boseman below.

Written and directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther 2 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. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Sterling K. Brown, Florence Kasumba, John Kani, with Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
