I am a huge fan of Joss Whedon and although most of you love him for his work on Buffy my passion for his work comes from FireFly. I am incredibly excited to see what he does with The Avengers. Recently the studios screened the Captain America Movie for the US Military which is a very fitting treat for them and from it has come word of an Avengers Easter Egg.
Multiple sites are reporting without a source that the following description is of a scene that appears at the end of Captain America. Obviously do not read it if you are afraid of spoilers and want to know nothing.
After the supposedly final scene, as I was waiting for the credits, a new scene opened with Cap awaking in the present day. I think we all know what happens here, Cap starts to get confused and runs out in NYC where he meets NIck Fury. Now on to the post-credits scene.
It starts out with Captain America punching a punching bag until it flies off into a wall, and then enters Nick Fury. They briefly talked about a mission and that they needed to get ready, but they never explained what the mission was. And then it happened. As the music kicked in, scenes of SHEILD, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), & Loki were shown!! It showed a hell of a lot of action! Thor had a brief costume change, just no chainmail under armor and his hair was a bit longer. Iron Man was shown in what looked like the Mark VI or maybe a new Mark VII armor!! I don’t recall who was fighting who or what, but it was a lot of kick-assery!! And at the end of it all, Thor threw Minjor and then it flashed… The Avengers!
Well at first there was the Avengers themselves in what looked to be a meeting room, Thor was leaning against wall with arms crossed and Cap was sitting down, as Tony Stark and Nick Fury were most likely talking about the mission that was discussed earlier with Cap and Fury and also a shot of Bruce Banner. The action scenes were confusing but from what I remember, scenes with Iron Man flying in the air, and Hawkeye shooting an arrow, along with some explosions and Black Widow kicking ass. As for Captain America only his shield and part of his Costume was shown, so I wasn’t able to tell what suit he appeared in. The last part was in a forest, Iron Man and Thor fighting, but I couldn’t tell if it was against each other or someone or something else. And then, Thor threw his hammer, similar to the way he threw it at the Frost Giants, and then flashed “The Avengers, coming May 2012”
The thing that I enjoy almost as much as Marvels movies is there fantastic easter eggs at the end of their movies. Which of the two films are you most excited to see Captain America First Avenger or The Avengers? The Captain America movie hits theaters next Friday.
