In an intro for the clips, Evans talks about using different shields depending on what the scene called for, including rubber if he was asked to hit somebody or magnetic if he needs to slip the shield on his back.

Says Evans: "The first time you put it on, you think, 'This is kind of cool. I'm Captain America. This is fantastic.'"
