MIT Captain America Shield
First, the weekend kicked off on a light note when a group of pranksters at Massachusetts Institute of Technology transformed the school’s Great Dome into Captain America’s shield.
According to The Boston Globe, the unidentified pranksters started planning the setup about a year ago when they learned a new Marvel movie was going to be released. One of the organizers explained that the current generation of MIT students grew up with the Avengers franchise, and the shield was a token of their gratitude towards the characters.
Sudbury, Massachusetts native Chris Evans seemed to approve. The actor who plays Captain America retweeted the MIT dome, writing, “Very cool!”
