Black Panther’s release came with a confirmation of a very famous Easter egg that was there in 2012’s The Avengers.
In this movie, SHIELD was observing the heroes around the world. Nick Fury proved himself to have a lot of knowledge about super heroes beyond Iron Man and Captain America. The opening scenes of Black Panther might prove that Fury and his SHIELD team knew the truth about Wakanda.
The photo above shows Tony Stark surrounded by SHIELD technology. Behind him is a monitor with a blip in Africa on the radar. With the description of Wakanda given in Black Panther, it seems like the blip may be the same place which the Vibranium meteor struck.
It is not an important Easter egg but, if this is confirmed it may be a welcome tie and proof of the MCU’s ability to plan.
As for the other blip, a few have suspected Fury to have been monitoring Namor and Atlantis. There has been no indication of the Marvel hero coming to the silver screen. As Black Panther charges toward all box office records, it is also possible that a feud between Wakanda and Atlantis may come to the big screen.
Black Panther has been ranked 4th in ComicBook.com’s Composite Rankings with an 86.16 Composite Score.
Black Panther is now in theaters. Other MCU movies are Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel, Avengers 4, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
