Warning: very minor spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War ahead.

If you sat through the interminably long credits for Avengers: Infinity War waiting for that post-credits scene, you would have had plenty of time on your hands.

And if you were particularly eagle-eyed, you may have noticed that the producers included a special thank you to the rights holders of cult sitcom Arrested Development. Why? Well, it turns out a very famous character from the show makes an appearance in the Marvel blockbuster.

According to a re-surfaced tweet from late last year, the moment happens when the Guardians return to Knowhere to collect the reality stone. The room is full of junk that The Collector has uh… collected over the years, and very briefly in the background, you’ll spot an homage to Tobias Fünke following his audition for the Blue Man Group.

Infinity War is directed by Joe and Peter Russo, who also directed several episodes of Arrested Development, including its pilot.

It’s not the first time the directors have left an Arrested easter egg in a Marvel film. In Captain America: Civil War, which was also directed by the Russos, the Bluth’s famous stair car makes a brief appearance in the background of the film’s huge airport battle scene.
