Marvel News : Iron Man 2 Cameos; X-Men adds another

Marvel News : Iron Man 2 Cameos; X-Men adds another

We all spotted the “Thor” and “Captain America” Easter Eggs in this past Summer’s “Iron Man 2″, right?

What about the “Incredible Hulk” cameo? See that?

But did you know there were also more visual references in the film?

Says director Jon Favreau, as quoted by our friends at The Daily Blam, “[The first is] from “The Incredible Hulk”, which means [“Iron Man 2″] took place before “The Incredible Hulk.” If you look you see the the crater on the other monitor, that’s the “Thor” thing. That’s where the hammer was recovered. This is just a geek heaven here.

“And if you think that anything on this monitors is not something we at Marvel didn’t talk about for hours – you are crazy! See, there is a map up there, so… if you look at those maps, each one of those locations corresponds to something in the Marvel Universe. I’m not supposed to say that.

“And if you look on each one, and I know what they mean, but I’m not gonna say it, but I’m gonna say this: Two of them relate to “The First Avenger: Captain America,” one of them relates to “Thor.” The one in Africa relates to Black Panther.”

Many likely spotted those Easter Eggs too, but the fact that Favreau is confirming them assures fans of say, The Black Panther, that he’ll indeed be on the big screen sooner rather than later.

While on the subject of superhero news, Matthew Vaughan has added another to his long-list of “X-Men : First Class” players : Alex Gonzalez will play Riptide, assistant to the villainous ‘Mr Sinister’ in the comics, according to ScreenRant.
