One can hardly imagine Captain America without a shield. Since the character, Steve Rogers is a proud shield lover, and his iconic circular shield has become a symbol of all weird things. However, this particular disc was not seen in Avengers: Infinity War but the hero was not left empty-handed.
No, thanks to King T & # 39; Challa, Steve has gotten his hands on a high-tech shield. And, as the prop's creator told the fans not so long ago, the shield was a tough one.
Recently, AL had the chance to speak with Kenneth Spivey, as the prop master was tasked with creating numerous [Avengers: Unendlichkeit] war tools. From the Infinity Gauntlet to the weapons, the native Alabama has gotten his hands dirty and manufactured many MCU toys, but he admits that Captain America's new shield has caused him a little grief.
Apparently the prop had a last-minute design change
According to AL, the original shield for Captain America was much longer and extended far beyond the hero's elbow. The piece was equipped with more defined claw-like extensions to reconcile it with Wakanda's connections to his Panther god, and Spivey was given three months to support it. As you can see here, the big sign was folded up by the craftsman after many back and forth marvel studios. And as soon as Spivey started on the massive shield, he learned that his design had been changed …
As Spivey says, the delay gave him about a day to finish the Wakandan Shield. The spontaneous demand forced the craftsman to make the tool "from scratch" by forming sheets himself. The shield was mainly made of aluminum to keep it light, and its hollow core helped actor Chris Evans easily handle the gun on the set. However, after the sign was used for filming, Spivey says that Marvel Studios had taken a "completely different route" and used CGI to bring most of his shield to life.
Currently Spivey says he still works with Marvel Studios He is now keeping quiet about the projects. Busy with his slate, the prop creator is looking forward to his next gigs, but he admits there's a franchise he wants to work on. If Lucasfilm ever needed help making some blasters, Spivey would take the chance to create props for Star Wars so Disney might want to give this guy a ring for his next stand-alone feature.
