The afternoon word on the tweet on the opening day of Avengers: Age of Ultron was that there was subtle homage to the greatest super hero ever:
An extra was wearing a Bo Jackson jersey…
… or at least an Auburn jersey with what looked to be a 34 on the back. Or least a jersey that looked like an Auburn jersey with what looked to be a 34 on the back. Or least a jersey that looked like an Auburn jersey but could have been a Cleveland Browns jersey but that, no, almost certainly is an Auburn jersey with what looked to be a 34 on the back.
The jury is still out on whether the jury is still out. Go see it. Help us figure it out (hint: salvage yard, bottom of screen). In the meantime, we’re claiming it.
It may mark Leonardo DiCaprio’s first time as an uncredited producer.

Definitely looked like an Auburn jersey when I saw it. Everyone I was with thought so as well. I thought it was #31 at first glance but my son said 34.
My daughter and I both noticed it looked like a Bo Jackson jersey.
I said the same thing the first time I saw it an I say it every time I rewatch it! That is a Bo Jersey! It’s definitely an Auburn jersey!
