#1 Thor wears a badge with the name of his human alter ego in some comics

In Guardians of the Galaxy, when the team goes to the Collector’s lair, they see a dog wearing a space suit. This is none other than Cosmo, a Soviet dog from Marvel comics in 2008. Note that he is also found in the animated series derived from the film and broadcast on Disney XD.

#5 Captain Marvel: Captain Marvel’s costume is a reference to DC’s Shazam character

In Captain Marvel (2019), when Monica changes the color of Carol’s costume, she first chooses a red and gold jumpsuit, either the same colors as the Shazam character, from DC, and which was previously known as Captain Marvel. The circle is complete.

#7 Watchmen: at the beginning of the film, a scene reveals that Bruce Wayne’s parents are saved

At the beginning of watch men (2009), the Owl saves Bruce Wayne’s parents from an attacker in front of the Gotham Opera House, saving them from death, and thus any possibility for the young Wayne to become the Batman thereafter. We expected no less from the brilliant Zack Snyder and his uchronic universe.

#8 A Chitauri Warrior

Let’s go back to Guardians of the Galaxy and The Collector. Here, we notice the presence under glass of a Chitauri warrior. The same ones who gave Captain America, Hulk, Thor and Iron Man the very first Avengers a hard time. Years later, the Collector seems to have captured one to add to his collection.

#9 Black Panther: This ship looks like Black Panther’s mask

In Black Pantherthe underside of the ship has the shape of the hero’s mask.

#10 “a gamma ray pioneer”

In Thor, Dr. Selvig announces that a person described as “a pioneer of gamma rays “knew the intelligence agency SHIELD. This person would refer to Bruce Banner, alias Hulk, because in Avengers, released a year later, SHIELD knows who Banner is. Dr. Selvig’s words thus take on all their meaning.

In Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), when the team is stopped, the xandarian guards get Star-Lord’s name wrong, writing it ” space lord “. Subtle.

#14 Thor: Ragnarok: The only movie where Doctor Strange wears yellow gloves like in the comics

If he almost always wears his pair of yellow gloves in the comics, Doctor Strange leaves it in the closet in the MCU films. Well almost, since Thor: Ragnarok is the first and only feature film where the character embodied by Benedict Cumberbatch puts them on. However, it might not be the last since one of the gloves was seen in a leaked scene from Doctor Strange 2.

#15 The Lego Batman Movie: Barris Automobiles

In The Lego Batman Movie (2017), we notice on the back of a magazine an advertisement for the firm “Barris Automobiles“. This is a reference to George Barris, the designer of the very first Batmobile for the TV series Batman 1960s. Magical.

#16 Spider-Man: Homecoming: the license plate of Aaron’s car, Miles Morales’ uncle is a reference to the latter

In Spider-Man Homecoming (2017), Miles Morales’ Uncle Aaron’s car has license plate UCS-M01, for Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1. This is the comics in which Miles Morales replaces Peter Parker.

#18 Doctor Strange: Benedict Cumberbatch plays both Dormammu and Doctor Strange.

In Doctor Strange (2016), Benedict Cumberbatch also played the main antagonist, Dormammu. He plays both his voice and his face, since the actor’s face was captured via CGI to bring the supervillain to life.

New bridge to the past. In Iron Man released in 2008, the music that is played during the casino scene is the same as the opening of the original cartoon Iron Man released in 1966.
