Captain America Shield In Iron Man

Cap-ShieldOne of the things the folks at Marvel have been doing a very good job of is tying their universe of heroes together. Everyone already knows that Samuel L Jackson makes an appearance as Nick Fury at the end of Iron Man, and the word is he’ll do the same in Hulk at some point paving the way for the Avengers.

But another tie in seems to be in Iron Man. The good folks over at FirstShowing have made a great catch by picking out, what appears to be the Captain America Shield on Tony Stark’s work bench.

Apparently Captain America was actually given his shield from the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, which could make sense in this universe. Maybe Tony Stark has been building a shield, for whatever reasons, and eventually S.H.I.E.L.D., who was revealed at the end of the movie, will find out about it at a future point and suggest they give it to Captain America for his use. And this means maybe it will involve some sort of awesome Tony Stark technology instead of just being a metal object he throws around. How about that for a concept?

Good thinking.

Did any of you guys pick out any more easter eggs in the film?
