We dive into FULL SPOILERS with all the revelations and hidden treats in the Marvel movie.
Full SPOILERS Pioneer of Avengers: Endgame!
Avengers: Endgame, the final chapter of the Infinity saga, is finally here and contains a ton of Easter eggs. Cameos and recalls of the 21
More about Avengers: Endgame: Time travel in the MCU: There are also failures about how Captain America raised Thors Hammer Mjolnir. the status of Gamora after Endgame; and what the death of Black Widow means for her standalone film.
Endgame recreates a series of memorable moments from the first Avengers movie Thor: The Dark World and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, as well as elements from Infinity War, Age of Ultron, Civil War, Doctor Strange and Ant-Man and the Wasp. Many of these scenes take place during the Avengers 'time rush to preserve the Infinity Stones and undo the effects of Thanos' Snap. The most notable facet of these callback scenes are the many cameos of former players.
This includes Tom Hiddleston, who plays his role as Loki in scenes filmed during the events of Avengers and Thor: The Dark World. Loki even sets off once with the Tesseract, and we have a theory that would allow Loki to return to the MCU's main timeline.
The Sequences of Time Succession also foresee the return of the Red Skull; Natalie Portman as Jane Foster; Rene Russo as Thor's mother Frigga; Tilda Swinton as the age-old; John Slattery as father of Iron Man Howard Stark; Robert Redford as Hydra-affiliated Alexander Pierce; The Winter Soldier's Brock Rumlow, Jasper Sitwell and Jack Rollins; and Hayley Atwell by Agent Carter and James D & # 39; Arcy as Peggy Carter and Edwin Jarvis, respectively.
We also see a shaggy Michael Douglas as a digitally run-down Hank Pym when he worked for SHIELD in 1970. The classic On the desk of Pym you can see an Am-Man helmet from the Silver Age Marvel Comics.
The 1970s Heist sequence also contains the last MCU cameo of the late Marvel comic icon Stan Lee. Stan the Man plays a long-haired hippie whose car has a 420-friendly license plate and a label that says "Nuff Said". Stan yells at some soldiers not to love war.
The time of the raids are not the only parts of Endgame in which known faces make cameos. Peter Parker is finally reunited with his schoolmate Ned (and we wonder why they are still the same age). The Endgame directors who used the Russo brothers to direct the community back then are looking for two actors on the show, Ken Jeong and Yvette Nicole Brown. Final director Joe Russo and Thanos creator Jim Starlin play members of the self-help group Cap. Joe Russo is not the only Russo playing a role in Endgame. His daughter Ava Russo plays Hawkeye's daughter Lila Barton.
Tony Stark's funeral includes performances by Michelle Van Dyne, Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, Maria Hill by Cobie Smulders, Aunt May by Marisa Tomei, Thunderbolt Ross by William Hurt and one of the most eye-catching teenagers all alone. A source from Marvel Studios confirmed to IGN that this teenager is Harley Keener, the little boy from Iron Man 3 (and again played by Ty Simpkins).
The funeral sequence also includes a poignant recall for the first Iron Man movie. In Endgame, Tony and Peppers daughter Morgan Happy Hogan says she wants a cheeseburger. In Iron Man, after Tony escapes from the Ten Rings and comes home, he makes Happy for Hamburger and eats Burger King to take away during his press conference. Of course, this is not the only indication of the first Iron Man movie in Endgame. Tony's last words before Thanos dies are a direct indication of his last line in Iron Man 1: "I'm Iron Man."
As for Pepper Potts, she's back for the first time since Iron Man 3, putting on armor for the final battle against Thanos and his army. In the Marvel comics, Pepper wears armor as a superhero rescue, though in the comics armor is used to save people, hence the name rather than the full firepower we see in the movie.
Endgame's 1970 The robbery takes place at Camp Lehigh, the secret military base of New Jersey that served as the "birthplace" of Captain America in The First Avenger. In The Winter Soldier, Cap and Black Widow visit Lehigh camp, where they find that Hydra evil Arnim Zola has loaded his mind into a supercomputer. Zola is mentioned by Howard Stark in Endgame. And Falcons "on your left" when the Vanished Avengers reappear is also a call back to Winter Soldier when Steve met Sam after beating him several times in an early morning jogger.
There's a bittersweet callback to Captain America: The First Avenger Cap, as he's about to travel back in time to return the Infinity Stones, Bucky says, "Do not do anything stupid until I get back." Bucky replies: "How can I take all the stupid things with you?" This is basically the same exchange that a pre-super soldier serum Steve Rogers had with Bucky at Stark Expo in 1943, except for the reversal of their lines.
When Steve Rogers visits Natasha Romanova at the beginning of Endgame, when she makes her peanut butter sandwich, her ballet shoes lie on a chair in her vicinity, recalling her lineage. Later, when she and the gang go to Tony Stark in the woods, she wears an arrow chain that can be seen as an indication of her close relationship with Hawkeye.
The Asgardians who survived both Ragnarok and Infinity can be mentioned elsewhere The war has found a new home on Earth – and that's a place you've seen in the MCU. Their community of New Asgard was originally the Norwegian village of Tønsberg, where in the first Thor movie a battle between Odin's army and the Frost Giants took place. It also appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger, when Red Skull rolled into town to steal the Tesseract. In Norway, Odin died in Thor: Ragnarok. "New Asgard" has a precedent for Marvel Comics. In the comics, Asgard moved as a floating city over Broxton, Oklahoma, to Earth, while the name "New Asgard" came from an alternate universe that Asgard merged with New York City.
Endgame has a particularly funny call back to Captain America: The Winter Soldier when Cap gets into the elevator with all the Hydra agents. The audience is convinced that they will see a repeat of the film's incredible brawl, but instead Cap says "Hail Hydra" and sets off with Loki's scepter without throwing a single punch. Cap's "Hail Hydra" moment is also a cautious allusion to the controversial Secret Empire comics story in which a nasty version of Cap is a Hydra sleep aid.
The Winter Soldier has a more emotional recall at the end of Endgame. The song to which Steve and Peggy dance is Harry James & # 39; s "It's Been a Long, Long Time," which was also featured in The Winter Soldier.
There are also several recalls of Age of Ultron in Endgame Remarkable is Tony, who wanted to say he wanted to build armor around the world and Cap would lift Thors Hammer. You may also have noticed during the last battle that Cap's Shield was smashed in the same way as it is in Tony's apocalyptic vision of Ultron.
Akihiko – The Yakuza Boss (played by The Wolverines Hiroyuki Sanada) as Clint Barton In his guise as Ronin, he hunts and kills in Japan – based on a Marvel comics character of the same name. In the comics, Akihiko was a member of the Shogun Reapers, the science clan of the Yakuza, the one with S.H.I.E.L.D. and built a cannon on the moon.
And what about the new haircut by Captain Marvel? When the film jumps five years forward, Carol Danvers wears the shorter hairstyle that's the signature look of the modern Captain Marvel.
Finally, Avengers: Endgame has no scene for itself, only a mid-credit or post-credit scene has … something. As with all MCU movies, the final image after End Credits in Endgame is the Marvel Studios logo. This time, however, not just a score or just silence is heard, but the sound of metallic knocking. This is most likely an acoustic recall when Tony Stark forged his first Iron Man armor in the 2008 film that unleashed the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
