When Marvel Studios kicked off its first independent production with Iron Man in 2008, few could have predicted that it would become the juggernaut that it is today.  “Marvel” is no longer just the company, it’s the brand name.  This is why Guardians of the Galaxy is much less of a risk than people might think; a “Marvel Movie” is a massive selling point in and of itself.  One of the benefits of the autonomy that Marvel Studios has enjoyed over the past few years is the ability to pepper its films with Easter Eggs that actually pay off, rather than ones that are just simply sly nods to the source material that never go anywhere (though there are a few of those too).  In celebration of this weekend’s release of Guardians of the Galaxy, a video has been put together that points out every single Easter Egg in the Marvel films through Thor: The Dark World, from obvious ones like Cap’s shield in Iron Man to more obscure comics references.

Hit the jump to watch the Marvel Easter Eggs explained, and sound off in the comments if there are any that were missed.

    No Cap 2?

    I saw this on MTV; it looks like the video was copied and posted here with the same info – that it covers everything leading up to Guardians of the Galaxy…only it doesn’t cover Captain America 2 either. There’s a small print thing at the bottom of the MTV article that states this. I guess you guys missed that part.

      No One-Shots or SHIELD either!

    does MTV not realize that Oracle is an actual company, and that is actually Larry Ellison (Founder of Oracle) being shown? Because while some of the video felt like a stretch, I beat my head against the table at that. Oracle is a sponsor, not a reference.

      There is one more nod to Oracle in Iron Man 3: when Tony recreates the explosion scene, looking for some clues left by Happy, he sits on one of a few Oracle servers. Also, to create that complicated simulation, Jarvis announces he is reaching to Oracle cloud for resources.

      Yes, but in the Comics, Oracle is owned by Namor!

      Did you really beat your head against a table?

    Senator Stern was named after Howard Stern, a friend of Jon Favreau.
