Captain America 2: 20 Easter Eggs, References & In-Jokes You Need To See

20. Stark Tower

Not the biggest revelation by any means, thanks to the fact that Marvel supremo Kevin Feige already spoiled its presence for everyone in interviews, but the presence of Tony Stark's rebuilt monolithic headquarters makes a VERY brief appearance in the film: "You get a quick glimpse, I don't know if you noticed, of the new Stark Tower €“ which is not the Stark Tower it's the new Avengers Tower in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We show it in there. It goes by *snaps* real fast during that targeting sequence. But it's there". Where To Watch Out For It As the three helicarriers manoeuvre into position to kick off the dastardly Project Insight, we see a glimpse of the identified targets (as alluded to in Feige's spoilerish response) spread throughout Washington DC who have been identified by the algorithm as potential future threats. One of those targets - presumably Tony Stark, but the 3D glasses provided in British cinemas are as much good for focusing on small details as staring through 8 inches of lemon jelly - is found inside Stark Tower, which as Feige says is the new Avengers Tower.
