One of the only things that Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War really didn’t do very much of in terms of seeding future movies was tease the locations and aesthetic in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of Wakanda, the home nation of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and the Black Panther. That’s not necessarily much of a big deal considering everything else Civil War is able to accomplish during its run time (including a solid introduction of T’Challa himself); when everything is said and done, the fact that was Wakanda really isn’t shown doesn’t feel noticeable or event absent by the time the film comes to an end.
Of course, fans did get a brief, small taste of what the live-action version of Wakanda is going to look like in the film’s first post-credits scene. Beginning with Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes putting himself back to cryo-sleep, the scene ended with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and T’Challa looking out the window of the Wakandan facility they were holed up in, leading to the reveal of a fearsome Black Panther statue stationed just outside.
A new batch of concept art pieces from Civil War by artist Marek Okon have been released online that give a better feel for that facility. While the images don’t reveal much, they do provide an interesting second look at the size, scale, and overall design of the Wakandan building at the end of the film, as well as the Avengers HQ that’s been around ever since the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Check out the concept art for yourself below:
Obviously, both the Avengers HQ and Wakanda will prove to be two integral locations to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, especially with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) using the Avengers base more and more instead of Stark Tower. Now one can only wonder when an Avengers Mansion may or may not be created.
The Wakandan facility really didn’t offer much in terms of scenery of the foreign nation, with fog and mist covering up any beautiful views the windows might offer. However, the mountains and jungle aspect of Wakanda was seen briefly before the reveal of the statue, teasing some of the gorgeous views and designs fans can look forward to in the Black Panther standalone. Based on the concept art released from the 2018 film already, it should prove to be one of Marvel’s more exciting locations to explore onscreen, coming after years and years of fans waiting and begging for Marvel to make a movie following T’Challa.
