Marvel movies are nothing if not dependent. The studio meticulously crafts these films to be action-packed, funny, and emotional all at once, but one of the true trademarks of any Marvel film is the easter eggs. Whether the studio is hinting at the future or meta winking at longtime fans of the comics, the Marvel cinematic universe is full of surprised for eagle-eyed fans to pick up on.
The studio’s latest installment, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is a slightly different animal than the rest, though. Not only is it arguably Marvel’s best film to date, it’s also the studio's most buttoned-up. Many of the jokes and gags prevalent in the other movies take a backseat to character drama and political intrigue. This makes for a much better film, but it also downplays some of the overt comic references along the way.
Thankfully Marvel slipped in plenty for hardcore comic fans to get excited about, and we're here to recount them in our list of All of the Easter Eggs from Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
