Fast & Furious 6 has been an obvious box office success, but what you may not have noticed are the Avengers-centric Easter eggs in the movie. All three Easter eggs have something to do with The Rock, aka 's character, Luke Hobbs. What's the connection? Is The Rock going to show up in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron? Well, first let's get to the Easter eggs, in case you missed them:

  • Early on in the movie, Roman Pearce () finds out that he'll be working for Hobbs. He wisecracks: "So now we work for the Hulk?"

  • At one point, Hobbs visits a security firm, where one of the managers calls him "Captain America."

  • When Hobbs calls Tej Parker (Chris Bridges), Hobbs's name shows up on his caller ID as "Samoan Thor".

So what's the link between Furious 6 and The Avengers (besides the fact that both are awesome)? It's no secret that The Rock is gunning to be cast for a role in a Marvel movie as Luke Cage. That, and Marvel's has said that he'd "love [Johnson] to be part of the Marvel universe somewhere, someday". Until further notice, it's probably just The Rock making sure that his love of Marvel stays on the radar.

Do you think these Easter eggs do the trick and get The Rock cast with Marvel? Let me know in the comments!
