Last November, a surprisingly good movie hit the theatres - Big Hero 6. Being a movie produced by Marvel Studios, it had high expectations on it, and I think we all agree that it lived up to them. While Big Hero 6 is currently not a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it did have a secret reference hidden in the following movie produced by Marvel - [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](tag:293035).
With the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron on Blu-Ray, it allowed me to examine the movie carefully for hidden references (also known as 'Easter Eggs'). This specific scene comes right before the final battle. As J.A.R.V.I.S doesn't exist anymore (was used to create The Vision), Stark needed a new AI system for his suit.
Found something? Though Tony picks the chip labelled "FRIDAY", the second chip in the picture is labelled "TADASHI." Tadashi was the name of Hiro's brother in Big Hero 6, who died in a fire. Another thing worth noticing that there is another AI created by Stark in the background, named Jocasta. In the comics, Jocasta was a robot created by Ultron.
Anyway, the big question is...
What does this mean for the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Could this mean that Big Hero 6 is already (or will be) a part of the MCU? Its certainly possible. Though Big Hero 6 is not in the mainstream Marvel Universe, its not impossible that it will be the case later on. Maybe we'll get to see Hiro, Baymax and Co. join the shared universe at some point in the future...In Phase 4? (Assuming there IS a Phase 4).
This will allow Marvel to depend upon a few old-timers, instead of leaving it up to the new guys, and put hem under pressure. Specially after the success of the mainstream universe, people's expectations from other characters and small/lesser known superheroes (and superhero groups) will be quite high, which could prove to be a challenge.
