Everyone Missed The Tragic Throwback In 'Avengers: Infinity War'

There is absolutely no denying it, Avengers: Infinity War bloody smashed it when it hit our screens and raked in millions and millions at the box office - even smashing records in its opening weekend

So there must have been many tens of hundreds of millions sat down, popcorn in hand, eagerly waiting for the 40 minutes of adverts to finish (not that they bother us). When it did get going you were probably thinking it was worth the wait. But did you notice the Easter egg?

According to the Metro some of these eggs can be pretty obvious, others are so subtle you only notice them on your seventh time watching. If you watch a film seven times that is...

And some have started to pick up on a tribute from Infinity War that is said to be a throwback to the very first Avengers film - it came out last month guys, be faster please.

And here it is. Shared by Reddit user, mukhtaar118, it shows two screenshots looking pretty damn similar but one was from the first Avengers film, back in 2012, while the other was from the newest one.


The first snap was taken from the moment Thor, Hulk and Captain America gathered around Iron Man on his return to Earth - with destruction all around them.

While the second was from Infinity War and showed the gang huddling beside Vision, after he had just been killed by Thanos.

And as per usual, fans have started to speculate over exactly what the 'identical' scenes meant for the Marvel franchise.

One wrote: "Good call!! This had to have been intentional" while another questioned: "Wait so could this mean he didn't die?" Your guess is as good as ours, mate.

A third said: "That last shot in IW sent chills down my spine. Vision lying there dead and the way Cap succumbs slowly to the ground and says,'Oh, God!' Perfectly enacted as all scenes should be!"

Is everyone else as tempted as us to re-watch Infinity War again and if we watch that we might as well watch The Avengers 2012 style. Oh go on, live a little.
