The biggest superhero movie of the year “Avengers: End Game” has been released globally. The movie is epic, emotional, and full of drama with an amazing climax.
Still, there are some Easter eggs in the film which you might not be able to catch in your first viewing. So let’s discuss some of the Easter eggs from the movie that we caught.
1) Captain America Hammer
One of the biggest moment in the film is when Captain America summons the Mjolnir which Thor retrieved from 2013 Asgard.
You might be surprised to know that this has happened in the comics before. It happened in “Thor #390” issue, wherein a fight Thor gets knocked out by a nasty foe named Grog the God-Crusher, dropping his hammer in the process. The Captain goes to help him and in the process, he tries to retrieve the hammer, and he not only picks it up but also kills a lot of people in the process.
2) Superheroes Daughters
Three superheroes in MCU have daughters, and all of them are direct or indirect versions of characters from comics.
In Endgame’s opening moments, we see Clint Barton training his daughter Lila in archery and calling her Hawkeye. If you are a fan of Marvel comic then after watching that scene you will think of Kate Bishop, who also goes by Hawkeye in the comics.
Then there’s Morgan Stark, Tony’s daughter. But Morgan is very different in the comics. As he’s Tony’s cousin, and he believes that Howard (Tony’s dad) stole all his ideas from his father Edward Stark. So to take revenge, he teams up with supervillain Count Nefaria to kill Tony.
The most direct and the closest connection between the movie and comics is Cassie Lang (Scott Lang’s daughter). She appears in Endgame as a teenager, six years older than we last saw her in Ant-Man and the Wasp. In the comics, she’s a teenage superhero who goes by the name “Stature” and joins the Young Avengers. She also has the same powers as her dad.
3) The New Asgard
One of the biggest question from Avengers: Infinity War was whether any of the Asgardians from the ship survived Thanos attack. The question was answered in Endgame wherein the beginning of the movie we get to see the Asgardians who survived the Thanos attack has resettled on Earth, as they planned to do at the end of Thor: Ragnarok. A “New Asgard” in Norway.
Although there’s never been an Asgard in Norway in the comics. But in the comic book issues of Thor from 2003 and 2004, an alternate-future Thor becomes the lord of both Earth and Asgard in the year 2020, and Asgard has been rebuilt on the devastated New York City.
Later, all this gets reversed and Thor creates a version of Asgard nearby to the town of Broxton, Oklahoma.
4) Pepper Potts Armor
In the final act of Avengers: Endgame. Pepper Potts gets her own armor suit. But she doesn’t get called by the name in the movie. But in the comics, she is called Rescue. Pepper Potts takes up this identity in 2009’s Invincible Iron Man #10 issue.
In which, Tony goes underground for various and all the pressure goes to Pepper’s shoulders. So she unleashes her fury at Tony by throwing a chair at a wall. Which opens up a secret room with the Rescue armor inside and begins her heroic career.
5) New Captain America
In the end scenes of EndGame, Captain America re-emerges as an old man, having lived a full life like Tony used to say him, and later he gives his shield to Falcon to take up his legacy.
This has also happened in the comics. In 2015, he was starred in his own first comic book called All-New Captain America which was later titled as Sam Wilson: Captain America. But in the comcis, Steve aged because of a conflict with the villainous Iron Nail, who neutralized his Super Soldier serum. But, in my opinion, the movie’s theory is much better and more permanent.
