Strange New Tribut to Captain America in Spider-Man: No Way Home


Spider-Man: No Way Home Unveils a Strange New Captain America Tribute

The Avengers’ universe continues to evolve.

There are new threats and villains around every corner, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s inhabitants are still looking for ways to honor the heroes who have already come and gone.

Steve Rogers’ legacy as Captain America has left an indelible mark on the MCU, and the people who live there are still paying tribute to him, albeit in unusual ways.

The second trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home was released on Tuesday night, and it revealed a new detail about how the on-screen world remembers their former Captain America.

The Statue of Liberty, one of America’s most recognizable symbols, is getting a massive version of Captain America’s shield.

Rewatch the trailer, paying special attention to the 1:11 mark.

The Statue of Liberty is undergoing renovations, and a banner hung on its side shows the planned changes.

Instead of holding the flame, the statue’s hand has been transformed into a shield.

Giving a statue meant to welcome visitors to the country an object literally designed to keep things from reaching you could be interpreted as potentially questionable messaging.

It’s a defense mechanism that takes the place of a beacon, but we’ll get to that later.

Later in the trailer, the shield can be seen as Spider-Man whips around the scaffolding and battles his new foes.

It falls from the arm that is supposed to be holding it at one point.

The flame is still present; the shield is simply meant to conceal it.

Odes to Tony Stark and Iron Man appeared all over the world in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which took place immediately after Avengers: Endgame.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier revealed that a museum exhibit dedicated to Steve Rogers had been opened.

This world is clearly still preoccupied with the actions of heroes who have passed away, and you could argue that the MCU is no exception.

Peter represents the future, but each of his films bears the imprints of the franchise’s past heroes.

It will be interesting to see if New York City is successful in incorporating the shield into the statue as planned, given that it is clearly torn apart at some point during No Way Home.

All we’ll have to do now is…
