Captain America's (Chris Evans) shield prop used in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is being sold for auction. Joe and Anthony Russo's 2019 blockbuster marked the end of Marvel's Infinity Saga, but it also wrapped up individual arcs for some MCU founding heroes. While both ‘Iron Man’ (Robert Downey Jr) and Black Widow's (Scarlett Johansson) ended up dying for the greater mission, Steve Rogers, on the other hand, got his happily-ever-after by the film's end.

As his signature weapon, ‘Captain America’ has been wielding his shield since he became a proper superhero in the 1940s. Made out of Vibranium, the shield was gifted to him by Iron Man's father, Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), amidst ‘World War II’. When Cap was found after being frozen in ice, the shield was with him, allowing the character to continue using it in his modern adventures. He was forced to give it up, however, in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ on the heels of his falling out with Tony Stark. It took seven years for him to reclaim his shield just before the "Time Heist" of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, but it was eventually broken by Thanos (Josh Brolin). At the end of the film, however, ‘Captain America’ debuted a variation of the shield to pass along to Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie).

Now, a shield prop used in close-up shots of Evans' ‘Captain America’ in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is being sold by Hake's Auctions. As seen in the promotional video for the item, the prop has been verified with official paper work to back up its authenticity. For those who are interested in bidding for Cap's signature weapon, the auctions will be held across November 2 and 3.
