  • On the planet Xandar, Quill takes the Orb to the Broker and asks what it is because Ronan's goons were after it too. The Broker suddenly doesn't want anything to do with it and kicks Peter out of his shop. Outside, Gamora jumps Peter and tries to retrieve the Orb herself. Nearby, Rocket and Groot see there's a bounty on Quills head, so they join in the fight. Its not too long before they're all arrested by Nova Corps and sent to a space prison called The Kyln. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • Inside Kyln all the prisoners wants to kill Gamora because she's the adopted daughter of Thanos. A prisoner called Drax the Destroyer has a personal vendetta against her because Ronan killed his wife and daughter, so he wants to avenge them by taking the life of one of his family members in return. Gamora explains that she's also against Ronan and was planning on double crossing him. Quill steps in and helps argue in Gamora's favor. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • At Sanctuary, Ronan reports to Thanos that Gamora is a traitor. Thanos tells him to take care of her and get the Orb. He also notes that Gamora is his favorite daughter, which enraged Nebula. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • Gamora has a plan to sell the Orb to someone else. Quill, Rocket and Groot agree to help and split the reward. Rocket has a plan to escape the prison. He needs one of the guards wrist devices, a prisoners prosthetic leg and a battery from a tall column in the prison. As he explains that its very important to take the battery last, Groot grabs it first. The alarms go off and security droids fly in.

  • The group on Quill's ship gets to know one another better. They don't like each other at all. Soon they arrive at Knowhere to meet with The Collector.

She listens and likes it. He asks her to dance, but she doesn't. He makes a pass at her, but she says she's not one of the doe eyed girls he's used to and she won't fall for his pelvic sorcery.

He explains that its an all-powerful thing. There are more of them. They can destroy planets. His assistant is fed up with him and grabs the stone to destroy him.

Ronan says he doesn't even remember killing his family, nor will he remember killing Drax. Nebula chases Gamora's ship above the atmosphere and blows it up. She gets the Infinity Stone and leaves Gamora floating in space to die. Quill calls Yondu to tell him where he is, then exits his ship, and gives Gamora his mask to keep her alive.

(Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • Yondu is going to kill Quill for double crossing him, but doesn't when Quill says that he has a plan to get the Orb back. On board the Milano, the group asks if he really has a plan or was lying. He says he has the start of a plan. 12% of a plan. Everyone scoffs. Quill points out that they've already lost so much, that at this point they have nothing to lose. Together they form a plan. Quill warns Nova HQ on Xandar that Ronan is coming to destroy them and they should get ready. Rocket is going to blow a hole in Ronan's ship so Quill, Groot, Drax and Gamora can board it. Gamora is going to cut the power for Ronan's security and then they're going to blow him up with a cannon that Rocket made. They start the plan. Rocket blows a hole in the Dark Aster and then helps Yondu and his men defend Xandar against Ronan's fighter ships. Yondu is shot down and uses his arrow weapon to take out an entire platoon of goons. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • On the Dark Aster, Gamora and Nebula fight each other, while Drax, Quill and Groot go to the bridge of the ship. The Nova ships form a giant net and slow the descent of the Dark Aster. Gamora finally beats Nebula, who falls, landing on a Ravager ship and commandeers it, throwing the Ravager out the window. Ronan orders his ships to kamikaze into Xandar. Rocket and Yondu's men shoot as many of the ships down as they can. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • Almost to the bridge, Drax kills Korath. Groot makes a shish-kebob out of a bunch of goons and whips them around taking out even more. Everyone makes it to the bridge to fight Ronan. Again, he's too strong for them, but Quill manages to shoot him with Rockets super cannon. It does nothing. Rocket crashes the Milano into the bridge and seems to have destroyed Ronan. The entire ship is plummeting towards Xandar, so Groot forms a giant nest around the Guardians for safety. Rocket is upset because he knows that Groot is doing will end up killing Groot. Groot, who up to this point has only said, "I Am Groot" responds with, "We are Groot". The ship crashes. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • Ronan is still alive. He sarcastically called Quill and his crew the Guardians of the Galaxy. Quill stands up to him and starts to sing the song Ooh-ooh Child. Ronan asks what he's doing, he responds, "distracting you" as Drax and Rocket shoot Ronan again. Quill grabs the Infinity Stone from Ronan. It's going to kill him, but Gamora tells him to take her hand. He remembers not having the courage to take his mom's hand, so he grabs Gamora's. Drax and Rocket grab him too and the power from it is spread between the four of them. They kill Ronan. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • Yondu shows up and demands the Stone as per his original deal with Quill. Quill hands him the Orb. As Yondu and his men take off, Kraglin notes that he likes Quill and they're glad they didn't take him back to his father like they were supposed to all those years ago. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • Gamora is upset that Quill gave up the stone, but he reveals that he still has the Orb with the stone. At Nova HQ, Quill learns he's only half human and half something else. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • Yondu opens his Orb and sees the Quill tricked him. Inside is a Troll doll much to his amusement. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • Quill finally opens the last present he received from his mother; a cassette tape filled with her favorite songs. He asks the Guardians where they want to go. Gamora says, "You lead, Star-Lord". He asks if they want to do something good or something bad then decides on both. Rocket holds a tiny Groot planted in a pot. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • Groot dances to the Jackson 5 while Drax cleans his daggers. (Guardians of the Galaxy)
  • The Collector sits in his destroyed archive where he is licked by Cosmo the Space Dog, and mocked by one of his collections Howard the Duck. (Guardians of the Galaxy)

  • Stark presents an early version of the repulsor technology that his son would perfect in Iron Man.
  • When Steve Rogers is injected with the Super Soldier Serum, the film cuts to a close up of his eyes opening wide, a shot better known in association with the transformation of the Hulk. The film The Incredible Hulk ties Bruce Banner's gamma ray research into trying to re-create the super soldier serum, (Banner's experiment went wrong, which resulted in Banner's first Hulk transformation) which was destroyed here.
  • Consistent with the serum seen in The Incredible Hulk, it is blue in color and is activated by Vita-rays. The canister containing the serum in The Incredible Hulk was labeled with a Vita-ray radiation warning.
  • Tony Stark had a Captain America shield prototype in his lab in the two Iron Man movies. Stark's father, Howard, is depicted here designing the shield and Captain America's armor. Obadiah Stane also mentions in Iron Man that Tony's father worked on the Manhattan Project, which ties into his World War II activities depicted here.
  • When the Red Skull is seemingly destroyed by the Tesseract, he appears to be transported across space rather than destroyed, shooting into what seems to be Yggdrasil mentioned in Thor.

The Consultant

The Avengers

  • Howard Stark found the Tesseract at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger, studied it as seen in his notebook in Iron Man 2 and it was in S.H.I.E.L.D's custody ever since as seen at the end of Thor.
  • Erik Selvig is shown to be working on the cosmic cube, trying to find out how to harness its power. This shows that it is a continuation from Thor.
  • In the beginning of the film, Selvig made mention to Fury that the Tesseract was giving off low levels of gamma radiation, nothing harmful to hurt humans. However, Fury reminds him that even low levels of gamma radiation can be harmful, clearly reminding him of what happened to Bruce Banner and how he became the Hulk.
  • Audrey Nathan, the Cellist is mentioned twice.
  • When Tony and Pepper are looking at the files on his teammates from the device that Coulson gave them, the footage is taken directly from The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger.
  • Steve Rogers has a number of flashbacks to his time in the war as he punches a boxing bag, many of these are events that occurred in Captain America: The First Avenger. His montage also includes a glimpse of his half-frozen body and a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist exclaiming that he's alive, a moment that was not seen in the earlier film. Other scenes are taken directly from Captain America: The First Avenger.
  • Steve Rogers discovered that S.H.I.E.L.D. phase 2's contingency plan is to use the Cosmic Cube's energy to make weapons using Arnim Zola's Hydra energy weapons as seen in Captain America: The First Avenger as a reference point to create their own arsenal of weaponry.
  • When Phil Coulson tries to contact Tony Stark in Stark Tower, Stark claims that "This is the Life Model Decoy of Tony Stark." This is a reference to Life Model Decoys (LMDs) that appear in the comics as duplicates for characters.
  • Tony Stark reminds Phil Coulson that he was "unsuitable" for the Avengers Initiative, as stated in Nick Fury's evaluation file on Tony at the end of Iron Man 2. Instead, he remains a consultant.
  • When Thor returns to Earth, Loki asks him how much dark energy Odin had to use to send him there, confirming that the Bifrost is still destroyed.
  • Phil Coulson refers to The Destroyer 's attack on New Mexico depicted in Thor and reveals that S.H.I.E.L.D. is developing weapons made from parts of it.
  • Bruce Banner refers to his fight with Abomination in The Incredible Hulk when Stark offers a visit to Stark Tower, saying "Thanks, but last time I was in New York, I kind of broke... Harlem."
  • Bruce Banner is said to have avoided a Hulk incident for over a year, meaning that the events of The Avengers take place over a year after The Incredible Hulk. During this time, he has spent his time travelling Asia to help the sickly.

  • Bruce Banner refers to the alternate opening sequence of The Incredible Hulk where Bruce tried to commit suicide. In the Wishbone lab, Banner tells the rest of the team "I got low. I didn't see an end to it, so I put a bullet in my mouth and the "Other Guy" spat it out."
  • Captain America references either Adolf Hitler or Johann Schmidt when he comes face to face with Loki in Stuttgart, Germany.
  • The song Tony Stark plays from the Quinjet when he makes his grand entrance in Captain America and Loki's fight, Shoot to Thrill by Australian rock band AC/DC,was also played during Tony's arrival at the Stark Expo at the beginning of Iron Man 2.
  • When Rogers talks to Stark about Coulson and why he did what he did, Rogers mentions "sometimes there's no way out." Stark replies he has heard that before, refering back to Yinsen, who saved his life in Iron Man. This makes it the first time in any way that Yinsen is somewhat mentioned since Iron Man.
