In Iron Man 2, Tony Stark is making an effort to find new information when he requests JARVIS get him all of the information on three project files. Those project files were under the names of Goliath, Pegasus, and Exodus.

Goliath paid off in Ant-Man and The Wasp when it was revealed that Bill Foster operated as the gigantic counterpart to Hank Pym’s Ant-Man. Exodus has not yet been revealed. However, Pegasus related to both The Avengers and, more specifically, Captain Marvel.

Pegasus was a project operated by Kree defector Mar-Vell in an effort to create a lightspeed ship capable of protecting the Skrulls from the Kree. Carol Danvers had worked at this Pegasus facility for Mar-Vell as she posed as Dr. Wendy Lawson. Later, this same facility would become the underground location used in Marvel’s The Avengers by SHIELD until it collapsed when Loki arrived.

Whether it was planned seven years ago in the original Marvel ensemble film or a happy accident which Marvel Studios took advantage of, Nicky Fury did tell Tony Stark that he was not the only super hero in existence. As we now know, Fury had a long history with Captain Marvel two decades before Tony Stark emerged as Iron Man.

“Pegasus was name dropped as you very impressively remember in Iron Man 2, then it’s also at the top of Avengers 1,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told ComicBook.com. “And it was early on tying her into that early MCU. What do we know about the period of the MCU in the years before Iron Man? Well, the Tesseract and Pegasus. were part of it. And then also you’re seeing another side of that same facility was interesting.”

As for whether or not the Marvel Cinematic Universe has plans in store to payoff the Project Exodus details, Feige says, “We’ll see.”

Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S.

Fans who have seen Captain Marvel know about the importance of Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. but the joint operation between NASA and the United States Air Force was first mentioned in another Marvel movie: Iron Man 2.

 

In Captain Marvel, P.E.G.A.S.U.S. is a top secret joint NASA-USAF project run by Doctor Wendy Lawson, an undercover Kree scientist played by Annette Bening. The words “Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S.” can be seen on a crate featured in Iron Man 2 but there’s also another reference to it when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) instructs J.A.R.V.I.S. with the following order:

“Tap the Oracle grid. I need some things out of storage. Give me everything from Projects P.E.G.A.S.U.S., E.X.O.D.U.S. and G.O.L.I.A.T.H.”

The Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. facility was also featured in The Avengers. However, Loki trashed it at the beginning of the movie when he arrived on Earth to retrieve the Tesseract for the Mad Titan Thanos.
