Iron Man Easter Egg in Deadpool & Wolverine.

Marvel Studios dropped the new Deadpool & Wolverine trailer, packed with Easter eggs and nods. Clocking in at just 2.5 minutes, it’s filled with references from previous X-Men movies and introduces new Marvel characters to live-action for the first time. Of course, there are also some Marvel Cinematic Universe Easter eggs sprinkled throughout. While the giant Ant-Man corpse and the appearance of Alioth are clear MCU references in the trailer, there’s another one hiding in plain sight – a nod to Tony Stark, aka Iron Man.

Fans of Marvel may remember seeing set photos from Deadpool & Wolverine that showed several post-apocalyptic cars traversing The Void wasteland. Among them was a car resembling Johann Schmidt’s Coupe from Captain America: The First Avenger. Now it’s confirmed that this car not only bears a resemblance but also features a unique hood ornament. Instead of the HYDRA logo seen on Red Skull’s car, this one has Iron Man’s mask as its hood ornament.

Many fans speculate that this car belonged to a variant of Tony Stark from another timeline in the multiverse. The hot rod paint job is a favorite of Tony Stark‘s throughout the MCU, so a car with that style and featuring the Iron Man hood ornament makes sense.

The appearance of this car in the trailer for Deadpool & Wolverine suggests that an entire timeline was pruned, and its remnants have found their way into the wasteland. It may serve as a bridge for Deadpool and other X-Men characters to interact with heroes like Iron Man, even if it’s just a passing reference in dialogue.
