Before Marvel brings their characters to life on the big screen, they have artists come up with designs of how the characters should look. It’s a big part of the process of bringing these characters to life, and this artwork helps inspire the whole prodcution team.
Earlier this week, one of Marvel’s conceptual artists revealed an alternative design for the Wakandan King, T’Challa, in all his Black Panther glory. It appears to be more technological and features less of the silver Vibranium trim than the final product we saw debut in Captain America: Civil War. Check it out:

This was an alternate concept design I painted up for #CaptainAmericaCivilWar They did such a good job introducing this character into the MCU. I remember watching it for the 1st time & thinking what a great job they did with the character. I can't wait until February! #BlackPanther @chadwickboseman #conceptart #design #costume #illustration #digitalart #digitalpainting #instaart #instaartist #그림 #아트 #영화 #marvel #marvelstudios
With the live-action MCU designs for both Spidey and Black Panther being introduced in Civil War, only minor alterations seem to have been made for their solo film debuts. Though brief, Spider-Man’s presence in Civil War was one of the highlights of the film.
Like Peter in Civil War, we’ve only scratched the surface of what his new Stark designed suit can do which we can see more hints of below as well as concept art of the villainous Vulture in action. With Spider-Man swinging into theaters in just a few short weeks, take a glimpse at some of the concept art that inspired the film’s aesthetics:
