Easter Eggs may be found in every Marvel film. You must pay great attention at times or you will miss these. Easter eggs in Marvel movies are as common as mutants, radioactive spiders, and Avengers in the finest Marvel films. There are hundreds of them in every single Marvel film to this day.
Which Marvel films have the most Easter eggs? In the original Iron Man, did you see Captain America’s shield Easter Egg? How about the samurai swords that hung in Wolverine’s room in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which did a better job of acknowledging Wolverine’s samurai past than his origin film? Did you have to rewind your copy of The Incredible Hulk to see Lou Ferrigno’s cameo? Check out this list (Part 1) of every easter egg in the Marvel world below – Wanna see more? Continue with part 2 here.
#1 In Spider-Man: Homecoming, one of Peter Parker’s classrooms has posters of several pioneering scientists, including Bruce Banner, the Incredible Hulk himself.
#2 Principal Morita in Spider-Man: Homecoming, displays in his office a portrait of his grandpa Jim Morita, a Howling Commando who served with Captain America in The First Avenger. Both roles were played by Kenneth Choi.
#3 The Path of the Righteous Man, Ezekiel 25:17, says Nick Fury’s gravestone, which is the same speech Samuel L. Jackson gave before killing motherF%c$er’s in Pulp Fiction.
#4 Hawkeye’s newborn is briefly seen at the Age of Ultron’s conclusion, and his clothing exposes an easter egg of a name: Nathaniel Pietro Barton, in honor of Pietro Maximoff, the man who saved Clint Barton’s life.
#5 Thor: Ragnarok stars Matt Damon as Loki, Sam Neill as Odin, and Chris Hemsworth’s brother Luke as Thor, and includes a play-within-a-film.
#6 In The Incredible Hulk, the proprietor of the pizza business where Bruce Banner is taken in is the same man who played Bruce Banner in the 1966 Hulk animation.
#7 Starhawk and his old school Ravagers from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are the original Guardians from the comic books, but with a very different past.
#8 One of the people trying to acquire Pym Particles from Darren Cross in Ant-Man has a barely visible Ten Rings tattoo on his neck, a reference to the terrorist group from the original Iron Man movie.
#9 A person in a brilliant red costume is visible behind glass as Bucky and Steve Rogers enter Stark Expo. This is the original Human Torch, Marvel’s first character, from the days when the company was known as Timely Comics.
#10 In a 1979 Saturday Night Live spoof, Ant-Guy descends on an elderly man’s automobile and startles him, and that man is played by Garrett Morris, the first actor to play Ant-Man.
#11 Shuri states that the self-tying “sneakers” she invents for T’Challa in Black Panther are based on one of their father’s favorite films, Back to the Future Part II.
#12 When the exterior of the Sakaarian gladiator arena is revealed in Thor: Ragnarok, there are numerous easter eggs in one, including the likenesses of Beta Ray Bill, Bi-Beast, and Ares, God of War.
#13 The music from the 1966 Iron Man cartoon is used as Tony’s ringtone when he phones James Rhodes in the first Iron Man. The motif is cleverly repeated throughout the series in many versions.
#14 In Captain America: Civil War, Clint Barton, and Scott Lang reenact a classic comic book scene from Avengers #223, in which Ant-Man jumps on Hawkeye’s arrow and soars into action.
#15 Marvel dropped a glimpse of Mjolnir in the post-credits sequence of Iron Man 2 before anybody could imagine how great it would be to have The Avengers united in one movie. That was enough to send us into Asgardian bliss.
#16 One of Agent Coulson’s trading cards features the legendary cover to “Captain America #1.” “They’re vintage,”
#17 Janet van Dyne, the Wasp, may be seen in the background of one scene in the Quantum Realm—an easter egg that was followed up on in the follow-up, Ant-Man and the Wasp.
#18 In The Incredible Hulk, the primary character and body of the 1970s television series “Hulk” appears as a security guard.
#19 At her aunt Peggy’s funeral in Captain America: Civil War, Sharon Carter delivers a passionate speech about holding your ground that is an identical duplicate of Cap’s classic monologue from the comic book version of Civil War.
#20 Adam Warlock was mentioned in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film, but his birth and distinctive “cocoon” were highlighted in a post-credits sequence from the sequel.
#21 Several Tony Stark’s other algorithms can be seen in the background when loading up his Friday AI system in Age of Ultron, including one dubbed “Jocasta,” a nod to the “bride of Ultron” from the comics.
#22 In Avengers: Infinity War, Doctor Strange pulls off a slew of fantastic feats against Thanos, but the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak, which went unidentified but were evident to any comic book reader, were by far the coolest.
#23 While Captain America and Falcon are questioning Jasper Sitwell, he mentions Stephen Strange, one of the persons they’ve been keeping an eye on.
#24 Someone transmitting a distress signal from the Asgardian refugee vessel is the first voice heard in Infinity War. Kenneth Branagh, the director of the original Thor film, was that voice.
#25 Captain America’s famous shield may be seen being worked on in the backdrop of the original Iron Man.
#26 In Black Panther, as Okoye, T’Challa, and Nakia look down on the casino floor from above, their positions and color schemes form the Pan-African Flag in a deliberate and subtle easter egg.
#27 In Doctor Strange, Mordo hardly utilizes the weapon he refers to as the Staff of the Living Tribunal, yet the term relates to one of the most powerful forces in Marvel comic book history.
#28 Before he made his debut in Thor: Ragnarok, Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster appeared as an easter egg in the credits of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, dancing up a storm.
#29 In Black Panther, Killmonger’s Black Panther outfit bears a slight leopard-print design, a nod to the character’s distinctive pet leopard, Preyy, from the comics.
#30 Thor was first transported down to Earth and into the body of Donald Blake, a crippled medical student, in the first run of the comic. The identity has surfaced throughout the years, and Thor’s bogus ID in the film is a hint at it.
#31 Cap strikes an actor costumed as Hitler in the face during his war bonds farce. This is a blatant allusion to “Captain America #1’s” classic cover.
#32 Dr. Helen Cho appears in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but comic book enthusiasts will recognize her as the mother of Amadeus Cho, a constant companion, and future Totally Awesome Hulk!
#33 Bruce Banner wears one of Tony Stark’s Duran Duran shirts in Thor: Ragnarok, which has artwork from the album on which “Hungry Like The Wolf” was released, predicting his future confrontation with Fenris Wolf.
#34 In an old room behind Red Skull, the Norse legendary entity/concept Yggdrasill may be spotted. Thor would later sketch it to demonstrate the notion of the Nine Realms to Jane Foster.
#35 Steve Rogers keeps track of the things he has to see and accomplish in order to catch up with civilization. The list differs significantly depending on the nation the picture was distributed in.
#36 A lone S.H.I.E.L.D archer is despatched to take down the depowered god of thunder long before The Avengers have convened.
#37 The Collector’s chamber contains Adam Warlock’s cocoon, as well as a Chitauri (enemy aliens from The Avengers) and a Dark Elf (enemy from Thor: The Dark World).
#38 Bucky grips Captain America’s shield just before “dying,” much like he does later in the comics when he transitions from being The Winter Soldier to fully embracing the Captain America mantle.
