Ah, Easter Eggs. We all love a good Easter Egg, don’t we? With decades of mythology to pull from, it’s impossible for the studio to stuff in every single plot detail, but that doesn’t stop them from throwing in those iconic little nods that only knowing fans understand (or dedicated movie fans research).
Speaking with ComicBook.com, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige discussed the type of people they make these films for:
“We make these movies for people to enjoy once on opening weekend if that’s what they want to do, but really, because we’re more like the people who watch it over and over again, we make it for them.”
From there, Feige jumped into the Easter Egg aspect, which is presumably one of the many things that brings hardcore comic fans back for multiple viewings. But from the sound of it, these Easter Eggs aren’t just knowing nods.
“We put things in, you can call them Easter Eggs, you can call them hidden items. They’re lots in there. It’s not just within each movie, it’s connective tissue between all the movies so there are things coming up, there are things in this movie that tie back to ten movies ago that you will only get if you’ve been tracking them very closely.”
That’s right. Time to bring out your cork boards and balls of yarn, folks. With this long arc that spans from Iron Man to Avengers 4, there are sure to be plenty of teases and hints strung throughout that lead to these major events. We’re sure that’ll keep most of us occupied for the foreseeable future.
