    33 Marvel Movie Moments That Are Referenced In "Avengers: Endgame"

    "I can do this all day!"

    Hi, hello, so you know the drill! There are massive Avengers: Endgame spoilers in this post, so read at your own risk.

    1. First, when Tony gets back to Earth and is arguing with Steve, he references their conversation from Avengers: Age of Ultron.

    2. Also, Tony says that Thanos's attack might not have happened if they had a shield around the world — this references a comment he made in Age of Ultron.

    3. During Endgame, Steve says "you've gotta be shitting me" and "let's go get this son of a bitch," which shows how much he's changed since his "language" line in Age of Ultron.

    4. In Avengers: Infinity War, Tony tells Pepper that he had a dream where they had a kid named Morgan — of course, this actually happens.

    5. When Thor decapitates Thanos and remarks that he "went for the head," it's a reference to Thanos telling him he should've done just that in Infinity War.

    6. When Steve and Tony go to Camp Lehigh to steal the Tesseract, Steve knows where S.H.I.E.L.D. is located because he found the secret lab with Natasha in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

    7. And of course, Camp Lehigh is first seen in Captain America: The First Avenger when Steve reports for training.

    8. When Ant-Man and Tony arrive in 2012, you can spot this iconic Avengers scene taking place, just from a different angle.

    9. When Steve's 2012 self tells Steve that he "can do this all day," it's a nod to Steve's iconic catchphrase, which was first used in Captain America: The First Avenger.

    10. Also, 2012 Steve thinks that present day Steve is Loki. This references when Loki transformed into Captain America to escape Asgard in Thor: The Dark World.

    11. The 2012 version of Tony in Endgame says that The Avengers are going to lunch and then Asgard after defeating Loki. This conversation sets up the iconic Shawarma post-credits scene in The Avengers.

    12. When Steve enters the elevator to steal Loki's scepter, it's a reference to the huge elevator fight sequence from Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

    13. During Endgame, Tony finally gets to say goodbye to his dad, which is something he has wanted to do since Iron Man.

    14. When Thor and Rocket arrive on Asgard in 2013, we see part of the scene from Thor: The Dark World where Loki is in prison.

    15. When Natasha and Clint bring up Budapest while on Vormir in 2014, it's a reference to when Natasha previously talked about it during The Battle of New York in The Avengers.

    16. When Rhodey and Nebula arrive on Morag in 2014, we see Peter Quill dancing after retrieving the Power Stone. This moment was from the opening credits in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1.

    17. When Thanos slowly begins to chip away at Captain America's shield during the big battle, it's a nod to Tony's dream in Age of Ultron.

    18. When Thor says he knew that Steve could wield Mjölnir, this is a callback to Thor being worried Steve could pick up the hammer in Age of Ultron.

    19. When Sam radios Steve and says, "On your left," it's a reference to Steve running past Sam when they first met in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

    20. When Pepper suits up to help battle Thanos, it's reminiscent of when she put on Tony's Iron Man suit in order to save him in Iron Man 3.

    21. Also, when Pepper and Tony are fighting back-to-back, it's a nod to how Iron Man and War Machine usually fight together.

    22. When T'Challa asks Clint for the Infinity Gauntlet, it's a subtle nod to the fact that T'Challa actually did learn Clint's name in Captain America: Civil War.

    23. While fighting Thanos, Spider-Man finally uses his suit's instant kill mode — he accidentally activated the command during Spider-Man: Homecoming.

    24. When Valkyrie joins the battle in Endgame, her entrance is almost an exact replica of the flashback in Thor: Ragnarok.

    25. When Captain America calls Spider-Man "Queens," it's a nod to when Steve learned where Peter was from in Captain America: Civil War.

    26. When Tony uses the Infinity Gauntlet and says, "I am Iron Man," it's a direct reference to the end of Iron Man.

    27. When Peter heartbreakingly apologizes to Tony while he's dying, it's a nod to Peter's "I'm sorry" before he's dusted by Thanos in Infinity War.

    28. At Tony's funeral, Pepper pushes a bouquet of flowers onto the lake with Tony's original arc reactor — in Iron Man, Pepper gave him the arc reactor as a gift.

    29. When Morgan tells Happy that she wants a cheeseburger, the moment is reminiscent of when Tony wanted one after returning from Afghanistan in Iron Man.

    30. When Steve and Bucky are saying goodbye, Steve tells Bucky not to do anything stupid while he's gone. The conversation is the reverse of one they had in Captain America: The First Avenger.

    31. When Steve and Peggy dance at the end of the film, it's a nod to Steve's promise to dance with Peggy one day in Captain America: The First Avenger.

    32. Also, the song they dance to is the same song that played during Captain America: The Winter Soldier when Nick played one of Steve's records to cover up their conversation.

    33. And finally, while there isn't a post-credits scene in Endgame, you can hear the sound of Tony building the first Iron Man suit from Iron Man.
