Rounding off a banner opening month for Avengers: Infinity War, Disney and Marvel commemorated their latest success with a trio of donations to the Smithsonian. The offering encompasses one of Captain America‘s shields and the Russo brothers‘ on-set director chairs, which will be allocated to the National Museum of American History’s Division of Culture and the Arts wing.
