    Can anyone confirm if Carol Danvers' name was mention during Hawkeye and Loki's escape from the HQ?

    Not that I heard. But there is another easter egg which nobody has mentioned yet.
    At the begining when they were evacuating the shield facility before Loki showed up there was a sign that read: project pegasus

    They typically don't. LMDs are usually just body doubles for VIPs. I wouldn't be surprised if the MCU uses them as a possible basis for Ultron or Vision if they are used in future films.

    'I'm Russian...or I used to be.'

    There might be more easter eggs in the tv news stuff at the end.

    Bold in the spoiler quote.

    She also said she used to be Russian, if I recall correctly. To which Loki replies "what are you now?".

    When Stark hijacks Widow's comm system in her jet it's playing an AC/DC song I believe. They were featured in both previous Iron Man films soundtracks (more so in the second I think).

    Also I'm wondering with the Janitor guy who talked to Banner ("then you've got a condition, son"). Is that an easter egg or just that it's a familiar face in that role?

    Also lastly.
    When Cap finds the Hydra tesseract weapons there are also Hydra uniforms like those worn in WW2 by the soldiers that Cap fought. Also it could be stretching it, but since they kept referencing TFA as an Indiana Jones type of adventure, the gear is kept in old wooden crates in a secret government facility (the helicarrier), seems a little reminiscent of Raiders of the Lost Ark's ending. Though that could be coincidence.

    Edit: Oh my bad, I didn't see 04nbod post the Widow easter egg.

    This MIGHT be stretching it a bit lol, but the scene where

    Agent Coulson approaches Tony Stark in his tower, to join The Avengers, and Tony uses his tech to relay the information on the screen in front of him, it reminded me a lot of this from Avengers: EMH

    Just a thought

    Oh yeah, and during the Tony-Loki conversation, Tony
    refers to the Avengers as "Earth's Mightiest Heroes"

    The LMD reference was pretty cool. They've been used for various characters like Ross, Stark, MHill, and others. Since they technically have super-powers, it'll be interesting to see if they work them into future plots in a dramatic way.

    Anybody managed to check if the AIM thing i posted is something? I'm going to see it again Tuesday followed by another on Wednesday. It could be nothing but I just couldn't make it out.

    Not sure if you would count it as an 'easter egg' but....

    ...Banner says he "Broke Harlem" last time he transformed.


    So that obviously references previous films.

    Not necessarily. Banner only mentions that he pulled the trigger and "the other guy spat it out". That doesn't quite happen in that deleted scene - he just crushes the gun.

    Pendantic, I know!

    Either way it's a fairly clear reference to that scene...and totally badass.

    The easter eggs were subtle but they were there.

    Watching all the movies together (edited, not one after another) there are TONS of coincidences...

    For example Bruce walking in the rain over the bridge could be timed right with Thor trying to get the hammer back in the rain.

    Thor arriving on Earth and wondering where he is more or less matches up with Bruce waking under the waterfall, wandering over to a truck and asking where he is.

    There are a TON of other examples like that spread throughout.

    Basically somehow, unsure how or it's just my mind seeing things, it matches up to a remarkably creepy and brilliant Pink Floyd's 'Wizard Of Oz' trip level masterpiece. It just feels like one big long film with the same themes, matching scenarios, and everything. As said, even the weather often matches up.

    Not an easter egg, but a nitpick...

    The SHIELD canteen has very good food. Selvig looks as if he gained some weight since the Thor movie.

    It's just a coincidence. It's common to have a heroes pitfall to be during the 2nd act. As for the rain, unless Thor can make the entire united states rain at the same time... It's unlikely. Thor was in the west, and hulk was on the east coast at the time
