These hidden little goodies not only build on the MCU that we have fallen in love with but also hint at future movies in the franchise!

In Ultron's journey to acquire vibranium (the stuff that Captain America's Shield is made from), the robot villain takes a trip to acquire a shipment from Ulysses Klaue in the fictional African country of Wakanda. Those in the know are aware that Wakanda is the home to future Avenger Black Panther, and could possibly be the set location for his solo film.

Marvel Fans have been been getting post credit scenes with Thanos - and explaining to our friends who Thanos is - for a while now. However, with Avengers: Age of Ultron's mid-credits scene, Thanos actually enters the fray. With Infinity Gauntlet in hand (just with less Infinity), Thanos looks like he will be taking manners into his own 'hand.' (See what I did there?!)

During the Hulk vs. Hulkbuster Iron Man fight scene, Tony angers the Green Goliath by bringing up his alter ego. Tony jokes to himself that he shouldn't have brought up "puny Banner," which is a reference to the comics, and all those times the Hulk called Bruce the same thing.

For those of you wondering why Anthony Mackie's Falcon didn't have a larger role in Age of Ultron need to look no further than Captain America: Winter Soldier. Falcon says that he has been busy with a 'missing person's case' which hints at the continued effort to find Bucky Barnes.
