Captain America’s shield has been changed, updated and improved. This is how the weapon of the great hero of Marvel Studios works now!
In the art book Falcon and the Winter Soldierthe illustrator of development concepts Wesley Burt has revealed some alternative abilities of the new shield of Captain America. Namely, Marvel Studios has replaced steve rogers by sam wilson. But, at the same time, he has changed and improved the weapon of the Liberty Sentinel. A generational change on an almost complete scale.
“Ryan Meinerding asked some of the visual development department to take some time and think of new ways that Sam could use Captain America’s shield. Ways specific to him and the physique that he has, when he was thinking about the tech edge piece, he was looking for a way to add a minimal element to the shield so as not to detract from the Marvel Studios weapon. But at the same time making it look like it could have a believable tech add-on and even suggest Wakandan upgrades.”
The changes prepared by the study to update it
“I also wanted to think of other ways that could emphasize the defensive nature of Captain America’s shield. Not just looking for new ways it could be used as a weapon. Immediately, I thought of the various shield technologies used by the Wakanda Border Tribe. His blue cloak shields. Also the great camouflage shield around Wakanda. It was a good starting point for how it could be implemented into this Marvel Studios character.”
One of the versions of this Wakandan update included edge pieces that shot out. They also filled in to form a protective energy barrier. In addition, it would have the wing motif of a falcon within the design of the new shield of Captain America in Marvel Studios.
The way in which Sam Wilson would store his shield in a wing of the suit was also being prepared.
“We have a trend at Marvel Studios for all of these cases,” he went on to explain. “We started with Iron Man 2, where we used this same base for the armor. Property teacher Russell Bobbitt thought it was funny. The base is the same, but the details change. So you have an execution architecture for the last ten years, for when we need it.”
