Every time Marvel makes a film, there is always something more hidden in plain sight, or lying just underneath the surface. You may call them teases, references, nods, or hints, but they are more commonly known as Easter Eggs. An Easter Egg is a hidden feature that makes reference or alludes to something pertaining to the topic. These are usually made for the hardcore fans because they would really be the only ones that would understand the references.
