Somebody around here has a quote from Whedon in their sig that says something along the lines of "There are two things I hate in comic movies: being ignored and being pandered to." That's how I feel about easter eggs.
Odin's ravens, assuming that was intentional, is a great example. It's truly unobtrusive, and you can only appreciate it if you're a super-fan. Stuff like "I'll call my friend Mr. Pym, he knows a gamma scientist named Banner" clunky and in the way, in my opinion.
