Civil War cast and crew talk Black Panther's involvement in new footage

Fan favorite hero Black Panther is finally coming to the big screen in Captain America: Civil War, and the cast and crew have opened up about exactly how he fits into the superhero showdown.

Marvel has a penchant for teasing upcoming projects with Blu-ray releases, and the Phase Two set includes a big ol’ preview for Captain America: Civil War. Many of the major stars are represented, and even Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige chimed in to note Black Panther isn’t your typical superhero. If anything, the Wakandan prince is more of a “monarch” in this world. Which, as comic fans will note, fits with the canon quite nicely.

A larger featurette will be included in the official collection, though Entertainment Weekly has debuted a clip from the package. The Phase Two set includes Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. The set is assembled to look like a Morag Orb, which was a major factor in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Check out the footage below and let us know what you think:
