It's not Thor. It's time some people stop bringing up that possibility.

Wasn't it just the guy that:

Although its not really an Easter Egg, but i love the continues references to the Demon in the Bottle storyline.

Drunk Tony, him not really being fully able to operate his own suit with Rhody going out of his way to teach him a lesson and all of that.

Reason i love these movies so much, is that they hold a great balance of being made for the viewing audience and for the hardcore comic book fan base that gets all these little references. Plus it makes it great DVD/Blu-Ray films to watch and just pause and get these little Easter Eggs.

Okay, just saw the movie this morning:
Not so much an easter egg as a reference, but Howard Stark's expos, and his penchant for explanatory videos of his world of tomorrow, is extremely similar to Walt Disney, his involvement with the World's Fair, his amusement parks and his original idea for Epcot.
Could anyone make out the headlines of the various papers and magazines that flashed by in the film?

The Stark Expo films totally reminded me of the Walt Disney films about Disneyland and Epcot. The music at the Expo sounded like something you'd hear at Epcot too.

I caught the Culver University reference. And besides Cap's shield, I also saw a few Captain America comics among the stuff Tony was taking out of his dad's cast.

I wish 90% of the people posting in this thread bothered scouring through said thread before repeating easter eggs.

Seems like we've exhausted them anyways.

Someone else in this thread said he saw something in Whiplash's stalker collection about a cosmic storm or the like. Could Marvel be getting the FF rights back!?

well if they were getting the rights back they cant make references to it until they do...I would say a no to Latveria...my guess would be Black Knight...seems to me that the map was showing potential Avengers....

I'm sure this was mentioned (I did not check through 6 pages) but it was great to see a Hulk reference:

Towards the end of the movie when Tony and Nick were at the SHIELD safehouse talking about his Black Widow's psych profile on Tony, the news brief on the television monitor was the female Asian reporter reporting about the Hulk incident at Culver University... they showed about 3 clips from that...

I thought that was really cool.

That would mean that based on the timeline when Tony appeared at the end of Incredible Hulk, the events that took place in Iron Man 2 had already occured...

But the events at the end of TIH did not happen right after the final fight either, it was basically interpreted that Banner finding control of his rage and the Stark/Ross meeting happened some time after the Hulk/Abomination fight.

When Banner presumably gains control of the Hulk, the screen reads "Days without Incident: 31" before his eyes go green.

So if TIH is happening roughly around the same time as IM2, then a month has passed since both the Whiplash/IM/WM AND Hulk/Abomination by the time Tony Stark goes to see General Ross.

Coulson picked it out of a box that consisted of Howard Stark's property, so I think it was just a prototype that Howard designed decades ago. Or at least that's what I'd hope is the situation because the look of the shield didn't impress me at all.

The only problem is that Coulson talks about the shield in awe as if it were the original shield that Cap used on the battlefield.

It didn't look plastic it looked tinny. Plus being a tad too small.

im just glad they are giving hulk references at all. this concretely means he will at least be in the avengers.

Norton said its a matter of timing. If Marvel approaches him, he'll do it if his busy schedule allows him to.

Not getting Norton would be a huge mistake .

These aren't really easter eggs but I thought it was cool they used younger photos of Rourke and Downey Jr.

as much as i like Norton, out of the actors being chosen for the Avengers movie (him, RDJ, the two Chris(s)), I think he would be the most difficult to deal with.

Ok I looked through this discussion and didn't see anyone mention this. IDK if it was just me, but i thought that at the end of the movie, like the scene right BEFORE the credits

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
that the photographer that jumps out to take a picture of Tony Stark looked vaguely familiar to Peter Parker


I've only seen this movie once (it was awesome), but that seemed to really jump out at me and I wanna know if anyone else thought the same so I don't sound crazy

Now we're just tossing out ideas here.

So I saw Wolverine at the beginning at the Star Expo. He was trying to cheer on Tony when he landed in the stadium, but all you could hear was metal clanking against metal.

little known easter eggs

1)The woman who lets Tony into Pepper's office to give her the strawberries is from the comics Bambi Arbogast(Tony's executive assistant from the comics).
2) Pepper calls down to Bert in legal......Bert Hindel- Former lawyer of Stark Enterprises. Fired after he failed to clear up the Government civil suits brought on during the Armor Wars. He also unsuccessfully defended Kathy Dare
