Pranksters cover MIT's Great Dome with Captain America shield

Some students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology turned the Great Dome on campus into Captain America's shield over the weekend.

They managed to drape a dome-sized shield symbol over the structure; although how they did it remains unknown, WCVB reports.

The students involved in the "hack" said they did it to express their gratitude toward the movie series.

On Monday, "Avengers: End Game" actor Chris Evans tweeted his approval.



Evans is from nearby Sudbury, Massachusetts.
