Continuity and References to the Marvel Cinematic Universe


  • Who's Gonna Take the Weight? is a song of the album Step In the Arena of the hip-pop duo Gang Starr.
  • Bobby Fish no doubt is a play on words. Bobby Fischer was a chess world champion who famously disappeared.
  • The suit tailor, Dapper Dan is also the name of the hair pomade used by Ulysses Everett in O brother Where Art Thou?
  • Product placement: Mr. Stokes drinks VOSS water.
  • This scene where Mystie Blake and Scarfe are talking, Scarfe is agreeing with Luke Cage being a vigilante and he says 'unless this firearm I'm holding turns into a magical hammer, I ain't interested' this has got to be a subtle reference to Donald Blake, the doctor who grabs his walking stick which turns into Mjolnir.
  • The missile used by Cottonmouth in the ending, is the US-made MANPAD FIM-92 Stinger. The warhead is rather small, only 3kgs, and should not cause that amount of damage. Also, Cottonmouth failed to extend the sights, so the missile had nothing locked on - not that it mattered in the scene.
