Warning: potential spoilers ahead.
Anyone who's seen any of the Captain America or Avengers films will be aware that the titular captain's shield is a round-shaped one in with a distinctive red, white and blue pattern circling a star, to emulate the stars and stripes of the US flag.
However, it looks like Cap is getting a brand new shield for the new 'Avengers: Infinity War' film, if the new line of action figures from Marvel is anything to go by.
Chris Evans's character may be holding a more traditionally-shaped, metallic shield for the new film - and as several people have pointed out, it has a Wakandan feel to it (Wakanda, of course, is the home of Blank Panther and the country where he invited Captain America and his team to take shelter after the Civil War).
People are puzzled about the change, with some accusing Marvel of 'anti-American sentiment'. Surely it's only a matter of time before Trump weighs in on the matter.

Cap's new shield reminds me of the Post-Secret Wars shield he uses but with a Wakandan design

I'm a huge Captain America fan but I am not a fan of the new shield he will use for Infinity Wars.

It looks like Captain America will have a new shield in Infinity War. I don’t know how I feel about it because it’s not circular...but get that man his shield. pic.twitter.com/5dRgrr92YH

It's just more anti-American junk from the left. Don't be fooled. Captain America"not" carrying his patriotic shield is just another leftist pile of poo. https://t.co/AfcL1jeTEP

Hmm. Not liking the design of Captain America's new shield. Maybe it'll look better in the movie? #AvengersInfinityWar
