There’s an Arrested Development Easter Egg in Captain America: Civil War
Today, Anthony and Joe Russo are best known as the moviemaking brothers behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier and its blockbuster follow-up, Captain America: Civil War. But back in the early aughts, they were better known for their work on the small screen, including regular work on Arrested Development.
Collectively, the Russo brothers directed 14 episodes of Mitchell Hurwitz’s brilliant-but-cancelled-then-resurrected comedy, including a joint gig directing the pilot. Which explains why the Bluth family’s beloved stair car (sans hop-ons) made an uncredited cameo in Civil War, as pointed out by Twitter user Janel Drewis. You don’t even have to squint to see it; it’s as Ann as the nose on Plain’s face.
