Somebody get that man a shield.” With those words, Black Panther all but assured that Captain America would get some sort of replacement shield in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, after leaving his iconic round shield behind at the end of Civil War. Photos of an action figure from the highly anticipated Marvel movie might’ve given fans our first look at the new shield, which appears to be a fusion of Cap’s original shield and newfangled technology.

The toy first appeared in a store in Australia, and a few fans who spotted the early action figures snapped photos, which you can see here. The line of 6” figures includes movie versions of Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Proxima Midnight, along with figures for the comic characters Taskmaster, Songbird, and King Cobra. Each toy also comes with part of a larger Thanos figure, and lucky Captain America is boxed with Thanos’s severed head. He’s also got a new shield, a metallic accessory with no stars or stripes.

The shield is mostly triangular in shape, which puts it in line with the first shield Captain America wielded in both in the comics and in the MCU iteration, where it was originally a prop for his U.S.O. show. However, the toy shield has a smaller, vestigial shield of sorts coming off of the bottom. It’s cluttered any busy-looking, but there’s likely an in-universe explanation for it, assuming it’s not just a toy-exclusive piece of plastic.

Cap’s iconic, round shield was made out of vibranium, the unbreakable metal that’s the secret to Wakanda’s success. When Howard Stark made the shield for Cap in World War II, he called it “the rarest metal on Earth.”

“What you’re holding there, that’s all we’ve got,” Howard Stark continued, explaining what a big deal it was that the United States was entrusting its whole supply to Captain America.

He wasn’t wrong, except you know who has a lot more vibranium? Wakanda, the most technologically advanced civilization on Earth. That just so happens to be where Captain America is hiding out.

The new shield calls back to Cap’s original look, minus the stats and stripes, but it’s evolved since then, with additional parts and, presumably, features, as befitting Wakanda’s role in its creation.

So, now the only real question: Is that shield strong enough to keep Cap from dying?

Most of Maniac takes place in dreams, but as the 10-episode mini-series comes to an end the two main characters, played by Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, return to the real world — or so we’re led to believe. For a show that borrows a lot from Christopher Nolan’s Inception, the ending isn’t quite as open-ended, but there’s still plenty of room for interpretation.

Netflix’s new “limited series” Maniac is here to blow your mind, but you might want to take your time on this one rather than binge it all in one sitting. Seriously, there’s a ton of plot details and Easter eggs that are easy to miss after five hours in front of the TV. But if you’ve already made your way through the initial 10 episodes you’re probably wondering when (or if) Maniac’s Season 2 release date will arrive.

Carol Danvers has officially landed in the Captain Marvel trailer by smashing right through a Blockbuster Video as the video opens, but rather than looking like a human returning home, she seems more like an alien looking at a strange land for the first time.

The first trailer for Captain Marvel debuted on Good Morning America on Thursday morning. Lead actress Brie Larson went on the morning talk show as a guest to help introduce the trailer.

The latest in the endless string of Avengers 4 fan theories could plug one of the most glaring MCU plot holes since Captain America: The Winter Soldier debuted in 2014.

In case you forgot, the big twist of Winter Soldier is that Hydra hijacked the entire system, and one of the names that’s deemed a threat to the evil organization is Stephen Strange — before he even becomes a sorcerer. So what gives and how does it connect to Avengers 4?

There’s a lot wrong with Zack Snyder’s 2009 adaptation of Watchmen, but the movie’s score is near the top of that list. So the news that Trent Reznor (one half of Nine Inch Nails), is scoring Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen on HBO should put fans of the original comic at ease — and not just because it’s the best musician-subject pairing since Batman and Danny Elfman.
