San Diego Comic-Con is the best place to get up-close looks at the costumes and props of your favorite superhero films, which happens to include Black Panther.
King T'Challa's full Black Panther costume is on display this year, and thanks to Marvel's Ryan Penagos new images give an unprecedented look at the suit's tiny details. The triangle design seen throughout is broken up raised texture lines, almost appearing like they're scratches on the suit. These appear on the arms, legs, and all throughout the torso.
A second raised texture is introduced at certain points as well, like on the legs, ankles, and arms, breaking things up even further. The only bulky elements seem to be the interwoven necklace design, the gauntlets, and boots.
The pics also give a closeup of his mask, which is insanely detailed. Multiple textures are featured here as well, though different in nature than the ones found in the suit.
All said and done, this is one of the sleekest costumes Marvel has created for its films, appearing more like the comics it's based on than other film costumes.
You can see the full pictures below.
Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life
