Things We Saw Today: Join Me in Celebrating This Perfect Infinity War Picture of Team Cap and Team Black Panther
We’ve known for a while that Wakanda is the site of at least one major Infinity War showdown (seeming to involve Thanos’ Outriders, and possibly as-yet-unknown henchmen/women, or maybe even the mad purple titan himself). This glorious line of heroism is one of the best glimpses we’ve gotten at these badass allies gathered together.
Some thoughts: T’Challa, I know I saw you last weekend again, but it’s already been too long. Okoye, as T’Challa’s right hand, is looking fierce and ready for anything and I can’t wait to see her in action and blowing the Avengers’ minds with her fighting prowess. Steve doesn’t appear to have his new gauntlet/shields here yet, but I am loving that Cap costume stripped of its stars and stripes. Hello, Nomad.
Bucky, however, did come armed for a fight, and this gives us an eyeful of his new, Wakandan-made metal arm; he’s also wearing a dark blue jacket for the first time in a long time, a jacket that has echoes of his original The First Avenger costume. Is that Natasha’s new truncheon on her hip? Why do I suddenly really hope Shuri designed it? Fans of Bucky/Nat may also be pleased to find them finally standing next to each other with no punches thrown!
And is my guy Sam Wilson flying somewhere overhead? Not pictured: my other guy M’Baku, but we know from the trailers that he’s here.
