Instead, he donates it to the Smithsonian’s Captain America exhibit, telling Don Cheadle’s James “War Machine” Rhodes: “When Steve first told me about the shield, the first words I said were, ‘It feels like it belongs to someone else.’”

The department of defense hands the shield over to ex-marine John Walker, who is played in the series by Wyatt Russell.

Russell, who is the son of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, has previously appeared in horror film Overlord, Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!! and the “Playtest” episode of Black Mirror.
