SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME Concept Art Takes A Closer Look At The Statue Of Liberty's Patriotic Redesign
New Spider-Man: No Way Home concept art has been revealed showing the work that went into transforming the Statue of Liberty into a memorial for the fallen Captain America. Check it out after the jump...
Spider-Man: No Way Home made a huge alteration to a New York City landmark when it was transformed into a memorial for Captain America. We're not sure if it was paying homage to Sam Wilson taking over the mantle, but the most likely answer is that the change to Lady Liberty (which replaced her torch with Cap's shield) was meant to pay homage to the fallen Steve Rogers.
It appears the world believes the Avenger is dead, and he very well could be following the events of Avengers: Endgame. Marvel Studios has yet to reveal what became of Steve after he gave Sam his shield, with not even The Falcon and The Winter Soldier providing any real clarification.
We're betting there's a reason for that, and it likely hinges on whether Chris Evans can be convinced to reprise the role (there's already been chatter online that he's in talks for two MCU projects).
Regardless, while this new Spider-Man: No Way Home concept art may be more technical than action-packed, it provides a fascinating insight into the Statue of Liberty's transformation. By the time Spidey's battle with that sinister quintet of villains was over, the shield had crashed to the ground, so it remains to be seen whether it will be restored or if the webhead will be blamed for wrecking another landmark.

If you guys don't mind today's #SpiderMan #NoWayHome concept art update will be slightly more technical
I spent Most of my time in preproduction designing refreshed Statue of Liberty and construction site around Liberty Island pic.twitter.com/2iwzgwHaCC
3/3 I used Blender and Eevee for real time preview while showing those spaces to my wonderful production designer Darren Gilford @DGilfordDesign— Marek Okon (@okon_marek) January 13, 2022
Those 3d spaces were later transferred to Unreal Engine and we used VR to look at them from human perspective. It was pretty amazing ;] pic.twitter.com/OEJmUlNQIl
