Captain America: Civil War is one of the most highly anticipated films left to be released this year. Fans are not only excited to see the iconic fight between Iron Man and Captain America go down, but the fact that Black Panther and Spider-Man are making their debut in the upcoming film is what's driving the anticipation through the roof. Even though we've seen T'Challa in action in all of the trailers and in the newly released footage, this concept art from the Captain America 75th Anniversary Magazine shows a close up look at a different take of the superhero's suit.

The concept art also shows an unmasked, fully suited Chadwick Boseman, which is something that big-time Marvel fans are looking forward to seeing on screen. Check out what artist Ryan Meinerding stated in the anniversary magazine:
The overall concept is that it’s a woven suit- on a more granular level, there is Vibranium woven into the fabric. This Vibranium thread would provide a silver sheen so that when it catches the light, it would glisten a bit. From there we tried to create a design language for patterns to fit very subtly into the hard Vibranium pieces that are woven through the suit.
Having the vibranium be woven into the fabric is smart on T'Challa's part since the suit will help keep him protected while not impeding his mobility. The tribal design of the suit looks absolutely amazing. All in all, seeing T'Challa suited up on screen is going to be one of the biggest highlights in Captain America: Civil War.
