Having been in UK cinemas for just over a week, Captain America: Civil War has finally hit the US, the superhero film set to have the fifth-highest-grossing domestic weekend in the country’s history.

Fans have begun frivolously searching for Easter Eggs in the film, with some more obvious than others.

Many eagle-eyed viewers spotted the Arrested Development reference in the film. **Minor spoilers ahead**

The directors of the film, the Russo brothers, famously worked on both Community and Arrested Development pre-Marvel. For any Community fan, having Jim Rash as a Dead was an obvious reference to his character in the show, Dean Pelton. (Danny Pudi, who plays Abed in the show, appeared in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.)

However, the Arrested Development easter-egg was a little more difficult to spot: in the background of the phenomenal airport battle, you can see the Bluth family’s stair car.

Unfortunately, an image won’t be available until the film gets a home release, but the stair car makes an appearance just as Cap is running onto the airport runway to face off against Iron Man.

Meanwhile, in other Marvel news, the title of the Russo brother’s upcoming Avengers’ films is said to be getting a retitle, having previously been known as Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2.
