Marvel: It's all connected! Looks like a Big Hero 6 Easter Egg has been spotted in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron.
While watching The Avengers sequel, a Reddit user named Kalean spotted a reference to the 2014 winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, Big Hero 6, which is based loosely on a Marvel property. Where at? When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is ready to head off into the final battle against Ultron and his army of Ultron-Bots he no longer has J.A.R.V.I.S. to aid him, so he sifts through a collection of A.I. programs he had created over the years. In the end, the chooses to use the female-voiced A.I., F.R.I.D.A.Y., but his other choices were added by the Marvel Easter Bunny.
There's a program labeled, "J.A.C.O.S.T.A.," which is reference to the female robot created by Ultron in the comics, that happens to have Janet Van Dyne's brain patterns. Also among that collection is a program labeled, "T.A.D.A.S.H.I." You'll remember that Tadashi was the name of Hiro Hamada's older brother, who created Baymax and inspired Hiro to reach his full potential.
The epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron coming to 3D Digital and Digital HD on September 8 and to 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital SD and VOD on October 2!
