A) triangular

Circular for sure but I wouldn't mind seeing him lug the triangular one possibly on his first mission while wearing the fatigues then graduating to his classic look sans pirate boots and the circular shield.

See, I want him to have the triangular one, and then have it modified to classic in Avengers.

It would be interesting to see the triangle in some scenes as a homage, but not for a whole movie. I want to see the audience fall for the circular one.

Start off with the triangular one. Introduce the circular version later in the film as an upgrade, offensively and defensively.

Yes, but it comes across as more of a throwaway nod to us than anything designed for continuity. I don't think Marvel Studios would think twice about contradicting where Cap's shield is if it came to it.

I'd like to think that even as aloof as Tony was portrayed in relation to some of his 'art' pieces, he'd think more of Captain America's shield than to have it sitting around as a glorified paperweight in his workshop.

I voted round shield, of course, but I wouldn't mind seeing the triangular shield show up for one mission as was mentioned earlier.

Then again it's Tony Stark.

I'm saying stay with the circular one, for simplicity's sake.

Speaking of Cap's shield, does anyone think it should show a little combat wear? I don't mean anything glaring but maybe a few small subtle scratches or does it really matter?

I'd pick both if that was an option, going from one given to him at the start that is merely bulletproof to the round shield at the end, which would be near-indestructable.

I can't really see the Captain's ROUND shield getting scratched up by wear-and-tear or stray bullets, but his other triangular one could be.

The triangular one perhaps while he is training.
He is supplied with it during "basic" training, then Cap in a moment of inspiration to take out some distant obstacle drops it to pick up something circular and throws it frisbee-like at a target, aided by Cap's enhanced skill, the effectiveness of the tactic awes his instructors, and that would be the end of the triangular shield.

As far as damage goes......isn't the shield virtually indestructable?

The circular one is an indestructible vibranium-iron alloy. I believe the earlier triangular one were just bulletproof/highly damage-resistant.

I'd like the idea of the original shield being elliptical and being lost with and stark having it locked away somewhere.

it's also be nice if he managed to reverse engineer it for a hulk buster suit, or at least to 90% it's efficiency

the 'indestructable' round shield could have signs of wear on the paint-job for sure, sratches, scuffs, dings and whatnot...

i thought it was made of Vibrainium and Adamantium. i could be wrong though. regardless they should have both in the film. start with the original shield the give him the circular shield.

It wouldn't be your fault. It's been cited as such numerous times.
Quote:
Rogers' indestructible shield was long referred to, even in continuity, as being composed of an adamantium-vibranium alloy. This contradicted earlier established continuity, as adamantium is only developed after Rogers is revived from suspended animation, during MacLain's later experiments to try and duplicate the material of the shield. Adamantium makes its first appearance in Marvel Comics in Avengers Vol. 1 #66, July 1969.
The adamantium-vibranium error first appears in the Captain America entry in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe (the composition of the shield is accurately described in the adamantium entry as "vibranium-iron") and was propagated in several subsequent stories by writers using the Handbook as a reference. An attempt to correct this was made in Captain America #303–304 (March–April 1985), which establishes that the shield is made of vibranium and an "experimental iron alloy", but that did not prevent the repetition of the "adamantium-vibranium" description over the years.
