Avengers fans at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) had an innovative way to celebrate the release of Endgame- hacking the college's landmark Great Dome to look like Captain America's signature shield.
During opening weekend on April 27th, the pranksters changed the dome after months of work, according to the Boston Globe.
The hacker, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told The Globe that planning started a year ago, as soon as they heard about the film. The hacker also said the current generation of MIT students grew up with the Avengers franchise and the shield was a symbol of their gratitude toward the series.
Captain America actor Chris Evans was impressed by the feat.
Very cool! https://t.co/jMQEPtnQdu

Avengers: Endgame is directed by The Russo Brothers and also stars Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Ruud, Chris Hemsworth, Karen Gillan, Brie Larson, Josh Brolin, and Jeremy Renner.
Adrift in space with no food or water, Tony Stark sends a message to Pepper Potts as his oxygen supply starts to dwindle. Meanwhile, the remaining Avengers — Thor, Black Widow, Captain America and Bruce Banner — must figure out a way to bring back their vanquished allies.
Avengers: Endgame is currently in theaters.
What did you think of what the prank?
