For those who have seen it, feel free to post them. (spoiler tag them if necessary)
It feels like there are so many that it's going to take a couple of viewings to catch them all, but from what I can remember:
1. Stephen Strange namechecked when listing possible threats.
2. Pulp Fiction reference on a particular character's tombstone.
3. Multiple instances of Bucky holding the shield like Cap does, perhaps hinting at his role once Chris Evans is finished?
4. I forget the exact wording, but there may have been a very subtle reference to Wolverine when Nick Fury talks about how he lost vision in his eye. Don't quote me on this though, if it was a reference it was very, veeeery subtle.
5. Multiple references to Stark and Banner, though I don't think a single one to Thor.
6. Howard Stark and Tommy Lee Jones pop up as photos on the founding members of SHIELD wall.
Are you talking about the time Steve is having a go at Fury for giving Natasha another mission without his knowledge? His line was something like "The last time I trusted someone I lost an eye"
Unsure if this one needs a spoiler tag but will for safety
There is a brief moment in the Fury car chase where he tries to engage flight mode but it fails, a nod to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s flying cars, Lola and the Stark prototype from Captain America: The First Avenger (Fury's car is super cool)
In this same scene, I think Banner is mentioned and someone from Iowa. Would have to watch again to be sure but anyone else catch this? Anyone possibly know who is being referenced? Or did I hear wrong and just making this up?
I think Hawkeye is from Iowa, if I remember correctly.
There's the arrow necklace Widow wears
I think he mentioned a high school student from Iowa. I've been wondering about that one myself.
yeah. I've been thinking about the kid from iowa line for the entire day. I'd find it funny if marvel decided to put in that line just to mess with the fans. t:
Was Amadeus Cho from IOWA or any of the kids in Avengers Academy.
That Doctor Strange reference was awesome
Not sure if it counts as an easter egg, but Ed Brubaker's cameo was quite cool.
Avengers tower looked awesome!
Pulp fiction for the win.
Ed Brubaker's cameo was great too. Not to mention Abed from Community had me rolling.
Ed Brubaker had a cameo!? Who did he play?
He's one of the scientists next to Winter Soldier when they're preparing him for the mission.
There's also a reference to iron man dealing with the turbine of the helicarrier in avengers
Maria Hill working at Stark Industries
Were there any design differences from it's appearence in The Avengers?
Stark/Avengers Tower was one of Hydra/SHIELD's Targets.
The Dr. Strange reference was nice surprise.
He was one of the scientists when Bucky was having his mind wiped.
There was a Pulp Fiction reference? What was it?
There were a handful of quotes that I wanted to check but I've forgotten them all already!!
Fury's grave: The tombstone had the line [BLACKOUT]The path of the righteous man... Ezekiel 25.17[/BLACKOUT]written on it
of course!! If only I could remember the other questions haha
[blackout]Loki's staff was a great touch - wondered how it got there then remembered, Hydra were SHIELD. Nice way of explaining their experiments too[/blackout]
Yeah, I got all the ones you guys said. Stephen Strange was great.
Banner was mentioned a couple of times, as well as Stark/Iron Man. Zola's face in the monitor was a nice touch.
Also, early on, Cap writes "Marvin Gaye" in a little notebook that also included "Star Wars/Trek". Didn't have time to read the rest though. Not really a Marvel easter egg, but still.
I also think Trouble Man is a nod to the music in those 70's spy thrillers the movie is influenced by. Also, Falcon says to Cap "running man". "Marathon Man" is one of the movies the Russos had as an inspiration for this film.
