Much like the weeks leading up to the release of the first Iron Man film, fanboys and fangirls are taking to the Internets with loads of rumors and speculation on what we can expect to see in the upcoming sequel. Of course, there are all manner of possibilities including things as outrageous as a scene in which The Hulk shows up, as well as a few things like “names on a dossier” which may give clues on the makeup of The Avengers.
It looks like we may be getting some confirmation on what to expect in two weeks. One of the major expectations is what the “easter egg” in this film will be.
We all remember the post-credits sequence with Sam Jackson as Nick Fury (and how much craze that started in the fan community).
Now, we’re getting word that there is yet another scene after the credits, and this one is a doozie. From the Italian site badtaste.it:
“A 100% trusted source (NOT from the production/distribution, but very familiar with the movie) confirmed us today that there will be an easter egg in IM2. It’s an extra scene, just like the one in the first movie, after the end credits.
We are able to tell you what’s about! It’s a scene about… Captain America and Thor! Maybe this doesn’t seem a big reveal, but it’s nice to have a confirmation.”
So there you have it. Possible confirmation that both Captain America and Thor will be at least referenced after the credits in Iron Man 2. Chris Hemsworth is currently shooting Thor, so it’s possible that he was able to put together a quick scene for Favreau, but it seems unlikely that Chris Evans will be seen.
What this means for Joss Whedon’s Avengers is also yet to been determined. We know that he’s having a hand in most–if not all–of the upcoming Marvel Studios projects, so we can expect to see a slight change in direction once those changes go into effect in next year’s Captain America.
