Odin's Presence in Avengers

Not sure if it has been mentioned as an Easter Egg but an important moment from the Avengers movie.

In the beginning of the movie when Thor takes Loki from the Quinjet to the mountaintop you can briefly see two ravens flying in the vicinity. Though I have found no official confirmation I believe that the ravens are none other than Munin and Hugin.

In Norse mythology Munin, which is Old Norse for memory/mind, and Hugin, which means thought, are two ravens that fly all over Midgard obtaining information for the all-father Odin. The ravens can also be seen at the beginning of Thor at the coronation ceremony, they sit on Odin’s throne with one on each side.

To have the ravens in that particular scene, a scene where Thor comes face to face with the brother he thought lost is too much of coincidence to think that they are not Odin’s ravens.

If it was anyone other than Joss Whedon i would say you were reading too much into it but he is the nerd director supreme so its actually pretty likely.

Nobody cares about a bunch of ravens flapping their wings. If he's there, put him in there.

I thought this the first time I saw the Avengers. Every Thor fan should grab it.

Didn't recall seeing any ravens but now i'll be looking more closely at this scene when the movie is released on blu-ray.

It's during the wide shot right after Thor puts his Mjolnir down, I believe.

I faintly remember the ravens. Nice catch.

Hmm. Interesting. I'll have to pay attention to that the next time I watch Thor and Avengers.
