Black Panther outwits Black Widow in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ deleted scene

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Deleted Scene - Not Used To The Truth (2016) Marvel Movie HD
Marvel Studios is promoting this week’s arrival of Captain America: Civil War on the home-entertainment market by releasing various behind-the-scenes clips and deleted scenes from the film — and one of the most recent pieces of footage is well worth checking out.

In a brief scene that was inexplicably left on the cutting room floor, African superhero Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) has a short but loaded verbal exchange with Natasha Romanoff  (Scarlett Johansson), the superhero spy known as Black Widow. It’s a scene that packs quite a narrative punch — if not a physical one — and serves as a nice reminder of how formidable of a character Black Panther can be.

Premiering in theaters May 6, Captain America: Civil War pit the heroes of Marvel’s cinematic universe against each other in an all-out brawl over the issue of government regulation of masked heroes.

Along with Captain America star Chris Evans, the film also featured Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, Sebastian Stan reprising his role as Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Paul Bettany as Vision, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, and Paul Rudd as Ant-Man. Along with featuring the debut of Boseman as Black Panther, Civil War also offered the first look at actor Tom Holland as the new Spider-Man.

Captain America: Civil War was directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo from a script penned by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

The film arrived on Digital HD, Digital 3D, and Disney Movies Anywhere on Friday, and will be available September 13 on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, and On-Demand.

Namor makes his debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but was he worth the wait?
Tenoch Huerta Mejía holds a spear as Namor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The highly anticipated Black Panther: Wakanda Forever finally arrived this past weekend, becoming an instant critical and commercial hit right off the bat. Wakanda Forever received positive reviews, with critics praising its emotional impact and significance after Chadwick Boseman's tragic passing. Some criticism was aimed at the story and third act, but even the film's few detractors agree that Wakanda Forever has a shining star in Tenoch Huerta's antagonistic Namor.

Although many mainstream viewers might not be familiar with him, Namor has been around since the Golden Age of Comic Books. We're not talking '60s or even '50s here, but 1939, when Namor the Submariner debuted as one of Timely Comics' -- the predecessor to Marvel Comics -- leading figures alongside Captain America and the original Human Torch. With a rich yet convoluted story throughout decades of semi-continuous history, Namor has been a hero, a villain, and everything in between.
