Jon Favreau Confirms <i>Black Panther</i> Reference Among Others, In <i>Iron Man 2</i>!

The director of Iron Man 2 confirms many Easter egg references to other heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the DVD special features. Check it Out!

Though the DVD & Blu-ray release of the highly anticipated Iron Man 2 blockbuster, isn't until next week, September 28th; a good friend RealIrOnMaN of Spidermedia, has come in contact with the blu-ray and it's glorious features.

Up front admiring the sequel's DVD menu, compared to the original film's bland menu, he says one feature consists of director Jon Favreau discussing the near-ending scene with Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury & Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark; discussing none other than the Avenger initiative, described as "geek heaven".

"Yeah, that's from "The Incredible Hulk" (news report on S.H.I.E.L.D monitor), which means it took place before "TIH". If you look you see the the crater on the other monitor, that's the "Thor" thing. That's where the hammer was recovered. This is just a geek heaven here.

And if you think that anything on this monitors is not something we (in Marvel) didn't talk about for hours - you are crazy! And if you look on that one, see there is a map up there, so... if you look at those maps, each one of those locations corresponds to something in the Marvel Universe. I'm not supposed to say that.

And if you look on each one, and I know what they mean, but I'm not gonna say it, but I'm gonna say this: Two of them relate to "The First Avenger: Captain America", One of them relates to "Thor", and the one in Africa relates to Black Panther."

With there being many shots of the maps in the scene, see if you can spot them by clicking the screencaps below.
