In addition to introducing viewers to the one and only Black Panther, "Captain America: Civil War" also brought us to the reclusive world of Wakanda. Now, concept artist Andrew Leung unveiled some unused concept art of a Wakandan city on his website.
Leung's artwork offers a much clearer look at the city than we ended up getting in the film. In "Captain America: Civil War," Wakanda's big debut was held for a mid-credits sequence, where T'Challa offered refuge to Captain America and the Winter Solider. As the scene drew to a close, the camera panned out of a window to reveal a Black Panther statue among the trees and mist, but cut away before we could see much more. As such, Leung's concept art is the first glimpse at what "Captain America: Civil War's" Wakanda would have looked like.
Of course, that doesn't mean Leung's vision for Wakanda will show up in "Black Panther." As seen in the different concepts below, the people behind the film never quite settled on any of these looks. As such, "Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler could opt for a different look altogether, though we likely won't know for sure until Marvel Studios releases a trailer. After all, many of the details of Coogler's film have been kept solidly under wraps so far.
It is unclear which Wakandan city is depicted below. However, it appears as a gleaming structure in the middle of an oasis surrounded by mountains, which is appropriate for a country that's known to be so reclusive. As per Wakanda's reputation for innovative technology, the city has a futuristic, sci-fi look to it; Leung's vision looks like a floating city, with similar-looking pods extending out of its heart.
Wakanda isn't the only part of "Captain America: Civil War" to get the Andrew Leung treatment. His website also includes pieces of concept art that depict the new Avengers facility as well as the Raft prison, where Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Ant-Man and Hawkeye are held after their big airport showdown.
