I re-watched the entire cap'n america trilogy today , and I was surprised to find a couple of STAR WARS references in Winter Soldier and Civil War , Even though some were pretty revealing and obvious and not exactly an Easter egg , I thought i'd point it out for the ones who missed it.
The Return of Mace Windu
Now all of us know that Samuel L Jackson played Mace Windu , a Jedi Master in the Star Wars Prequels , The Russo brothers gave him the perfect Easter egg in Winter Soldier. In Winter Soldier , there is this scene where Nick Fury's car is tumbled down by Barnes. Nick fury makes an escape using his laser knife or whatever. I know that most of you don't watch videos while reading , so I took the liberty of taking a screenshot.
If you don't believe me, The Russo brothers themselves agreed that it was an Easter egg in a Screen Junkies interview.(they talk about it in 4:50)
Spider:man " Empire Strikes Back "
As you've seen in homecoming , The MCU's version of Spider man is a big fan of star wars. Even though its not an Easter egg , it's still a really good reference .
No Luke , I am your father !
Even though this isn't confirmed by the Russo Brothers , I think that its pretty clear on what they're trying to do here. Bucky is like Anakin Skywalker , He doesn't know about his past self , and Bucky being the Winter Soldier is one of the shocking reveals after Darth Vader.
Memories of the past
Just like when Vader recognises Anakin , Winter Soldier recognises Bucky , but are quickly manipulated by the Emperor and Robert Redford respectively.
Arm Restored for the sequels
Here they are folks , all the star wars references and easter eggs I found .
