When Killian is showing Pepper his brain, he "accidentally" shows the view of the galaxy - it's the same exact view that was used in Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger (when the Red Skull opens the Tesseract). Maybe AIM has some interest in Thor and it'll be explained in The Dark World.
Great catch! And it's important because in the comics, AIM was the original creator of the Cosmic Cube, aka the Tesseract. Since seeing The Avengers I have speculated that the scientists Clint Barton recruited to help Dr. Selvig work on the Tesseract were in fact from AIM. There's no proof of that from the movie, but perhaps they were and that's why Killian had that particular map.
