A team of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) students have proven that they are the biggest fans of Avengers. This group of students have turned the Great Dome into a Captain America shield. It was done for the sake of celebrating the new Avengers: Endgame movie. The team has called themselves hackers and gave anonymous interviews as well.
The hacker said, ‘Putting things on the dome is a big challenge. We hope people look at it and it gets their imagination going.’ The Great Dome disguised as the Captain America shield was shot by Raymond Huffman, a sophomore at MIT. Raymond claims that he is not part of the hackers and simply uploaded the video online for everyone to see. He said, ‘It was super exciting to see it in the morning all set up. Everyone thinks it’s awesome.’
This is not the first time that MIT’s Great Dome has been the subject of hacking. It has been hacked many times and has undergone transformations ranging from a piano holder to Star Wars’ R2D2. As for the Avengers: Endgame, it is a franchise coming to an end. What started with Iron Man putting on his famous Iron Man suit, will be ending with this installment of the last movie from the franchise. The fans were left shocked after the ending of Infinity Wars where Thanos wiped out half of the population of Earth. Memes were quick to follow though – the Internet community sure is resilient – and softened the blow.
Avengers: Endgame has reportedly made new box office records on the weekend. It opened to a whopping $350 million domestic, $859 million overseas, and a total of $1.2 billion worldwide. We are not giving any spoilers because we know how it feels to be on the other side of it. Are you planning on watching the movie?
