After the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming’s trailer, Marvel superfans did what they do best-Study the trailer scene for scene and came up with connections that may not have been visible for the normal viewer. For instance, a connection between Marvel’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron and the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming film.
The connection was found out by fans when watching a short scene in Homecoming. Donald Glover and Logan Marshall-Green are seen with a high tech weapon. Marshall-Green aims and shoots a powerful beam onto his target. A close look at the unknown weapon shows that a robotic-like hand has also opened up after Marshall-Green pulled the trigger. The weapon closely resembles a Chitauri weapon as seen in Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
But how could two low-life thugs get a hold of such a powerful weapon? Here’s when another Marvel hero comes into place. In Netflix’s Luke Cage, Hammer Industries built firearms and ammunition from salvaged Chitauri metal. The online site Reddit’s TheAluminiumMan pointed out that the weapon could be a salvaged arm of an Ultron Sentry. The Avengers sequel had shown Ultron create an army of artificially intelligent robots that he could simultaneously control with his mind. The Ultron Sentries could transform their arms into cannons.
As there is no confirmation as of yet about this Ultron theory, it should be taken as another example of how dedicated fans can get about Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel has made films in the past which contain the most absurd or even random easter egg for fans to uncover, so we should not rule anything out at this point. That being said, the Homecoming trailer has already loaded itself with other easter eggs to make any Spider-Man fan giddy with excitement.
The upcoming movie seems to have paid respects to its past films, like the homage to Spider-Man 2 scene where Toby Maguire’s webbed slinger uses his spider webs to stop a moving metro train. The movie also harks back vintage Spider-Man of the 60’s with the return of the webbed suit, the first suit worn by the hero in his first appearance.
