Ahead of the film release, Hasbro’s Marvel Legends action figures for the movie have been released, showing Cap’s brand new shield. The black-and-white shield has a design which sports a very Wakandan visual style and is likely made of vibranium, the rare substance that was used to construct Cap’s original shield.
Cap and his team were invited by Black Panther () to take shelter in Wakanda after the fallout from Civil War. Wakanda is a major source of vibranium. As seen in trailers for “Avengers: Infinity War”, Black Panther is seen telling someone unseen, “Get this man a shield,” while pointing to a bearded Steve Rogers. It’s believed that he gives the order to his sister Shuri, the princess of Wakanda who designs new technology for the country.
Letitia Wright who plays the character has confirmed her appearance in the upcoming “Avengers” movie. “It was surreal to just see certain characters that I’d been watching as an audience member for years and then be opposite them,” she said of filming the superhero team-up movie. “I can’t say who but it was amazing.”
