At the end of ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’, Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) took on the mantle of Captain America, wearing a costume inspired by the colors of the US flag and wielding the shield that Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) gave him.
Just as the suit was made in vibranium by the Dora Milaje of Wakanda, the hero’s shield would also get an upgrade.
Via Twitter, a fan page shared some concept art revealing that the accessory would be updated with an energy barrier similar to technology used by a tribe in the fictional country.
In the end, the idea was discarded because it would de-characterize the Captain’s most striking symbol.
In addition, Sam Wilson already makes use of several technological devices and it would probably be overkill to add one more.
“New Conceptual Arts of ‘Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘ revealed that tech add-ons to the Wakanda shield were considered for Captain America’s Sam Wilson shield! The shield would have incorporated the various energy barrier technologies used by the Border Tribe.”
