On this Christmas Eve, let’s take a look at a small easter egg for the occasion, hanging on Tony Stark’s fireplace in “Iron Man 3”.
A Captain America shield tattooed on the Mandarin’s neck, a reference to Pulp Fiction, or the appearance of a particularly jovial Stan Lee … Like all the feature films that make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man 3 contains many small easter eggs.
Set during the Christmas period, Tony Stark’s third adventure on the big screen offers us a little hidden seasonal detail.
Indeed, in the first part of the film, just before the hero’s superb Californian house is pulverized by a helicopter rocket, Tony and Pepper Potts discuss with the researcher. Maya Hansen in their living room. Just behind them, near a pretty Christmas tree, one can notice the presence of a special Christmas sock, hanging from the fireplace.
Indeed, looking a little closer, we can realize that it is in the name of Jarvis, the digital butler of Tony Stark vocally interpreted by Paul Bettany. Given that at this stage, the character is still in the state of ethereal artificial intelligence, it will unfortunately be difficult for him to collect his gifts on the morning of December 25.
In addition, we can also note the green, red and yellow colors of the sock which – beyond evoking the Christmas holidays – also recall the traditional costume of Vision: the android created in Avengers: Age of Ultron thanks to the Spirit Stone and the personality of Jarvis.
This small detail, seemingly innocuous, would it have been placed here as a teaser for the most observant fans?
