Watch: Black Panther and Black Widow exchange quips in deleted ‘Civil War’ scene

Captain America: Civil War needed more Black Panther. It needed *way, way more* Black Panther. Okay, maybe I would have just preferred a Black Panther movie.


Civil War had a lot of fun stuff in it, but its pitch-perfect introduction of the Black Panther is one of our absolute favorite parts. This new deleted scene featuring him and Black Widow having a loaded little chat is certainly no exception to the film’s rule that T’Challa basically has to be awesome in every scene he’s in.

Revealed by USA Today this morning, the clip—one of many included in Civil War’s home release—features Black Panther and Black Widow engaging in a bit of psychological warfare as each of them tries to probe deep into the other.
