An eagle-eyed fan has spotted a cool little Easter egg in Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, referencing Jeff Bridges’ The Big Lebowski.
A surprising Easter egg for Jeff Bridges’ The Big Lebowski was recently found in a scene from Robert Downey Jr.’s first cinematic solo outing as Tony Stark. a.k.a. Iron Man. Marvel fans will remember that Jeff Bridges played Obadiah Stane in the first Iron Man film, going head-to-head with Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark by the end of the film while donning the Iron Monger armor. The Iron Man Easter egg that references The Big Lebowski involves Jeff Bridges’ nefarious plans to sell Stark weapons on the black market.
The Iron Man image surfaced on the Marvel Studios subreddit and shows a shipping manifest that proved Jeff Bridges’ Obadiah Stane had been dealing arms under the table. The unsubtle reference to Jeff Bridges’ The Big Lebowski comes from the name of the vessel transporting the missiles: the MSC Lebowski. It’s a brilliantly sneaky reference to The Big Lebowski in a brief moment from Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man. You can check out the Easter egg below.
