We’ve talked before about how Black Panther’s outfit in Captain America: Civil War has been the only CG superhero costume to ever look good on-screen. Now a new VFX reel from Cinesite shows exactly what went into making Black Panther look so good while simultaneously looking so real.
Cinesite’s video shows the very simple outfit actor Chadwick Boseman wore when he portrayed the Black Panther during filming, followed by the many, many layers and additions that VFX added afterwards. The end result, while subtle, looks real instead of flashy. Which is probably why it works so well.
