*************SPOILER ALERT: AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR**********************
Nazi fighter, Veronica Haunani Fitzhugh (see http://www.newsplex.com/content/news/Woman-arrested-for-assault-and-battery-on-the-Downtown-Mall-425720844.html), and future Doctor of Astronomy Jake Turner discover the meaning of Captain America’s phone number in Avengers: Infinity War.
Here is what we uncovered…
The phone number Tony Stark has for Captain America.
The first night we saw the movie, none of us were prepared to write the number down.
Turner saw the movie again and transcribed the phone number.
We called and received several beeps then silence.
We attempted to reverse directory the number on white pages and received no matches.
We googled the area code and discovered it was one from Atlanta, Georgia where a lot of the Marvel movies are filmed.
We googled the full number and found https://www.reddit.com/r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers/comments/8fifhh/so_i_called_captain_americas_phone_number/. Here we discovered when the phone number worked, it played The Eagle’s song “Hotel California.”
We looked up Hotel California and Georgia and discovered a Hotel California in the country Georgia. Turner thought it might be an allusion to the imaginary Marvel country Sokovia.
We took a break.
Fitzhugh googled the lyrics to “Hotel California.”
One of the lyrics is: “So I called up the Captain,”
Also, we youtubed Hotel California and the ad for Marvel Contest for Champions appeared:
Also, The Eagles released the single “Hotel California” in 1977, the year of Ms. Marvel featuring Carol Danvers. Captain Danvers is the captain who receives the final transmission at the end of Infinity Wars.
So, Marvel and Disney, where is our Mercedes Benz?
