Small Details In Endgame Only True Fans Noticed

Small Details In Endgame Only True Fans Noticed

There’s never quite been a movie like Avengers: Endgame. That’s probably because there’s never been a movie franchise like the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With over 20 interconnected movies released over the span of a decade, Endgame had ample opportunities to make tons of references and callbacks to a sprawling continuity of characters and plot twists. And while many significant lines of dialogue were pretty easy to spot like

…there were still plenty of other fantastic callbacks that may have flown over your head. Here are some of the small details you might’ve missed in Avengers: Endgame.

Beware: gigantic, world-ending spoilers ahead.

Throughout the film, we got lots of direct references to previous movies, but some are less obvious than others. For example, when Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton fly their spaceship to Vormir to retrieve the Soul Stone, one of them quipped to the other, “we’re a long way from Budapest.” That refers back to a mysterious mission the two of them went on in their shared past that they referred to during the events of the first Avengers film.

Meanwhile, just before the un-dusted heroes all join Cap to fight Thanos and his army toward the end of the film, we hear Falcon jump on the radio to tell his partner: “On your left.” That’s a callback to when Cap kept lapping the Falcon when the two first met as competing joggers at the beginning of Captain America: The Winter Soldier:

But the most endearing and heartbreaking callback? When Happy Hogan chats with Morgan after her dad’s funeral and he asks if she’s hungry. She says she wants “cheeseburgers,” and Happy smiles, saying, “Your dad liked cheeseburgers, too.”

That’s a reference back to a scene early on in the very first MCU movie: when Happy and Pepper pick up Tony after his rescue from the Ten Rings and he demands two things: that Pepper call a press conference…and cheeseburgers:

Unless you spend a lot of time watching YouTube videos about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s a better than decent chance that you have no idea what Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo look like. Well, you actually got a great look at one half of the directing duo you just may not have realized it at the time.

When the movie jumps five years forward in time, we catch up with Steve Rogers in his support group in Queens, New York. In that circle of trust is a man who says he and a date spent the whole evening talking and crying. That guy is Joe Russo, the younger half of the directors who also helmed three other epic MCU entries: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War.

This also wasn’t Joe Russo’s first time in front of the camera, either. He appeared in an episode of Arrested Development, a show for which he and Anthony directed several episodes, as well as in their film You, Me and Dupree, and all three of their other MCU films though Joe’s part as Bert the paparazzi in Infinity War hit the cutting room floor before the movie made it to theaters.

    Did you actually spot Howard The Duck? Did you find yourself impulsively scanning that wide shot looking for hidden cameos, maybe hoping that somehow you’d spot Daredevil, or Wolverine or some of the Fantastic 4?

  2. David Nakamura says:

    Tony called Rocket …Ratchet from Ratchet and Clank when he was using the wrench on the time travel machine

    • Alexis Lee says:

      David Nakamura also he called Thor – Lebowski who played by Jeff Bridges who played Obi something.Stane (I don’t remember his name ?)

    • eyebelieve3 says:

      +Alexis Lee Thats right. I loved all the nick names they sling aroud. Antman got a few! “Thanks for the pep talk pissant” 😀

    • Manav Kantawala says:

      He could also be referring to Rachet from Transformers as he was the medical officer and also technician

  3. BloodSpill Comics says:

    Also another thing is: No one gave a funeral for Black Widow

    • Hellfire 728 says:

      Iron mans funeral is more important and also how do you perform a funeral without a body

    • Xavier Von-Zwack says:

      You’re kidding right? Time Travel in Endgame was a Goat Rope. Its similar to what they do in the Flash TV Series. The main continuity’s timeline would have been fine by returning the stones if Gamora hadn’t stayed, and Thanos, his children and an entire Chitari Army weren’t killed in 2023. The stones cant be the only thing that creates time splinters. Not buying that. Also not buyin that Nat is now completely out of existence. The Soul World is a dimension just like any other. It can be manipulated.

    • Vignesh Mallya says:

      Didn’t they throw flowers into the lake?

    • xiaoxing04 says:

      +eyebelieve3 just saw it for the 2nd time today. She was there but as the 2014 version

    • William Vouk says:

      I have a feeling that she and Gamora will be back, which is why they didnt

  4. Camilo Rodriguez says:

    Small details on Endgame everyone noticed except a few casual viewers

  5. Javion Bragg-Oliver says:

    They missed that the heart of Ironman is the same design as when they put there fist together

  6. Rahi Kadam says:

    did anyone notice that during the funeral they showed the small boy from iron man 3

  7. itsme bish says:

    Tony Stark sacrifice also stems from the first Avengers when Cap told him he didn’t have what it takes to to lay it all on the line for the team

  8. Candy Punch says:

    In “Age of Ultron”, Captain America barely moves Thor’s hammer and it scared him. In endgame when he was worthy and could use it, that was why Thor said “I knew it.”

    • ClawDomination says:

      Hanif Huzairi no wrong, he couldn’t lift it because he still had the secret hidden from tony, after he told tony the truth that’s when he became worthy of the hammer

    • CmdrSloanne says:

      Captain America/Steve could have lifted the hammer back then in the Age of Ultron, but why he’s not a egotistical like Tony who only care what others thing of themselves. Steve is selfless & would give his life for others, he just pretended he could lifted back then.

    • CmdrSloanne says:

      +Hanif Huzairi that’s so true.

    • Wendy Hadid says:

      +CmdrSloanne He was not worthy because of the secret of who killed Tony’s parents.

    • Hanif Huzairi says:

      +Wendy Hadid could be

  9. RISHAV SINHA says:

    RDJ launched the MCU in 2008 as tony stark. Its kinda too hard to see MCU without him..
    Some people will move on, but not us..

  10. Jim Blaze says:

    The best part comes when Cap says ‘Hail Hydra’.?

  11. Richard Velez says:

    *ACTIVATE INSTANT KILL!* …. i was waiting for that for so long

  12. SUPERGIRL The Second Last Kryptonian says:

    And T’challa calling Hawkeye clint.
    Linking it to civil war.

    I am Clint
    I don’t care.

    He Did care after all.

  13. SUPERGIRL The Second Last Kryptonian says:

    The Mcu will Never be the Same again.
    Far From Home is Going to Give some sad Tony Vibes

  14. DaSupreme212 says:

    Does no one notice the ballet shoes at Nat’s desk? That was a really cool look back at her past before she…i dont even wanna talk about it?

    • eyebelieve3 says:

      Dont worry, they willl go get a past version of her and bring her to the future like they did with Gamora. 😀

    • Anuradha Kumar says:

      eyebelieve3 hopefully

    • You Wish You Knew says:

      eyebelieve3 no they won’t, not because they can’t but because the actor that plays her only has one movie left on her contact and they are making a origin story movie about her soon

  15. Nicolesca says:

    Missed the huge one where in Captain America: Winter Soldier, Steve Rogers comes to visit Peggy now as an old woman and says “Well, I couldn’t leave my best girl, not when she owes me a dance.” and he stayed true to his word in Endgame when the film ends by him travelling back in time to give Peggy that dance ?

  16. AuliaSekar says:

    There are way more references to previous movies I mean it’s like almost every scene in Endgame contains one or more references, it’s like the whole movie was made for all the references from the whole MCU movies… and every time I spot it, I gasp or cry or wow, or all three at the same time:
    really want to watch it again! it’s super AWESOME, SPECTACULAR!

  17. Midgardian Loki says:

    Me throughout this video:

    *I understood that reference*

  18. vuk kicos says:

    Im still pissed about Rocket not getting Bucky’s arm….

  19. N123 u says:

    *Welcome endgame watchers* who feel empty and don’t know what to do with themselves after watching the most incredible movie that has touched every possible emotion.
    I love you 3000

    • Xavier Von-Zwack says:

      I don’t feel empty at all. It was a good movie but it didn’t surprise like Infinity War did. I didn’t leave the theater thinking Holy Shit what just happened. Plus Spider-Man is coming out in 2 months, and Jake Gylenhaal as Mysterio is going to be epic. There is a lot to look forward too in the MCU.

    • N123 u says:

      +Xavier Von-Zwack yeah get what you mean but imo endgame was amazing and the fight scene was sooo much better, literally gave me goosebumps when my cinema started cheering. And i was emotional after infinity war whereas i was sobbing after endgame. However, the abrupt ending of all the avengers being snapped in infinity war was SUCH A GREAT ENDING.

    • N123 u says:

      +Xavier Von-Zwack also i feel empty and sad coz the avengers are never gonna get back together. That epic marvel music while all the avengers get ready to fight and the relationships between all of them ( love, humour and mocking each other?) will be truly missed.

    • Xavier Von-Zwack says:

      I get it. I just loved the surprise and Shock IW gave me. In Endgame we kind of new what was going to happen. The time travel was a bit sketchy. But lots of Fan Service. Cap utilizing Mjolnir was pretty cool, but was it really any better than Thor Bifrosting into Wakanda? I’m actually kind of relieved its done.  I think the majority of people were going to get fatigued. Time for some fresh blood. A new Big Bad.

      Knew I wasn’t the only one
