The one ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Easter egg everybody missed

The tone of Avengers: Endgame was significantly
darker than earlier Marvel movies, largely due to the occasions within the earlier
film, Avengers: Infinity War. Half of the life within the universe was
worn out with the snap of Thanos’ (Josh Brolin) fingers, which contributed to
the darker storyline.

Although the studio lightened issues up with some superb Easter eggs, there was one hidden secret that references a darkish time in Captain America’s (Chris Evans) story.

The scene in query was when Cap and Tony Stark (Robert Downey
Jr.) went again in time to safe the Space Stone within the 1970s (after having
flubbed a earlier try in New York City).

As the heroes infiltrate Camp Lehigh in Avengers: Endgame,
Cap rocks an previous navy uniform with the title “Roscoe” on the
chest. While most followers thought the uniform belonged to a random man, Roscoe
really holds significance within the Captain America comics.

Who is Roscoe?

According to Screen Geek, Roscoe is a reference to a
character who confirmed up within the comics within the 1970s. Roscoe took up Cap’s mantle
within the comics after he retired from responsibility.

But Roscoe’s time as Captain America was short-lived. At one
level, Red Skull caught Roscoe pondering he was Steve. When he found his
true id, Red Skull killed Roscoe and left his physique for Steve to seek out.

After discovering the physique of his fallen friend, Steve got here out
of retirement to take out Red Skull.

The storyline is a reasonably darkish and unhappy ending for Roscoe, although the reference in Avengers: Endgame was a pleasant little tribute to the character. It can also be a reasonably obscure storyline, so even the most important Marvel followers doubtless missed out on it.

What different Easter eggs have been in ‘Avengers: Endgame’?

Another obscure Easter egg wasn’t really featured in Endgame. With award season in full swing, Marvel
not too long ago launched the script for the movie hoping to snag a nomination.

The script revealed some further details about a scene in
the movie that concerned Evil Nebula (Karen Gillan) preventing with Gamora (Zoe
Saldana) in 2014. In the theatrical model, we by no means study the title of the
planet the place Gamora and Nebula are preventing.

But within the Avengers: Endgame script, it says that they
are on Korbin, which suggests they have been duking it out with some Korbinites. This
additionally signifies that the 2 have been on the house planet of Beta Ray Bill.

Beta Ray Bill has been talked about in a earlier MCU movie. In Thor: Ragnarok, a statue of the character was on the
facet of the Grandmaster’s tower. We by no means bought to see Beta Ray Bill in motion,
however the mentions are a promising signal that he’ll finally be launched.

Did Thanos actually die?

With Marvel heading into Phase four of the MCU, followers are already speculating about which supervillain would be the subsequent huge dangerous. But what if Thanos didn’t really die in Avengers: Endgame as beforehand thought?

In a deleted scene from the movie, Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) has a
dialogue with the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) in New York about what actually
occurred to the individuals within the snap.

As she explains it, everybody who turned to ash within the first snap
didn’t really die. Instead, they have been willed out of existence, which suggests
that their passing was not everlasting.

This is one motive why Hulk was in a position to snap everybody again
(aside from the individuals who had actually died). It additionally opens the door for Thanos
to return sooner or later down the street.

That stated, it was most likely take one thing of equal energy to will
Thanos again into existence, although it’s an attention-grabbing factor to consider.

Avengers: Endgame is offered to stream on Disney+.
