Even though the films was released way back in April, fans are still picking up on tiny Easter Eggs in Avengers: Endgame – and let’s face it, Marvel packed a tonne of a lot into the blockbuster.
The latest easter egg spot came in the form of Captain Marvel’s new suit, which may have been much more intentional than we all first thought.
One Redditor suggested that Carol Danver’s new suit could have been a nod to the first Captain Marvel’s costume.
Check out the similarities below:
If that colour switch was intentional, it was definitely an easy one to miss unless you’re real Marvel fanatic. This would also explain why it has taken so long for fans to pick up on it.
Meanwhile Thanos’ creator, Jim Starlin, recently opened up about one particular part of Endgame that didn’t sit right with him.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Starlin explained that his issue came with Thanos’ weapon.
“The one thing they did and I will never forgive the Russos and [writers] Markus and McFeely was they brought that weapon he had in, which is inspired from the Thanos helicopter which most everybody had almost forgot all about,” he explained.
“Originally, the ThanosCopter was created by Larry Lieber for some kids’ books called Spidey Super Stories. Thanos was running around robbing banks with the name Thanos written on the side of his copter which always struck me as a little strange all by itself.
“But I tried to ignore it and I thought people had forgot about it, but they stuck it in the movie. I had a couple of writers credit me with creating it and I’m like, ‘No, it wasn’t me’.”
Starlin did say that co-director Joe Russo had worried him slightly as he received an email from him stating that they had cut the backstory for Thanos out of the movie completely.
“I had just made the mistake of watching Justice League about a week before and all I could think of when he told me this was, ‘That could easily come out to be like the Justice League movie’,” he continued.
“I got inside and, like, two minutes, the Hulk didn’t have to get his ass beat before I could say, ‘Forget it Jim, this is gonna work out just fine’.”
