Captain America Shield In Iron Man

— Posted by John Campea

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?

    i think the shield is made by adamatium and vibranium! thx for finding the shield in iron man.

    It could be that Tony simply made the shield while he was running tests on the metal. Once he found the mixture with the right qualities then he could start the ¨making of¨ montage.

    I can´t think of a good reason as to why he would paint it up except that maybe he was bored or it was on a whim.

    I’ve been reading your post and you all are missing something.

    If you have read the first books of captain america you all have seen that it wasn’t the round shield he uses now. It’s was a triangle shield. Then the cap was frosen when they found him they give a new shield made by adamatium (like wolverine claws).

    Later then when cap leaves being captain america and Tony Stark made and give him a new shield.

    So if you link all together the easter egg in the movie is not that wrong.
