Is This the Final ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ Easter Egg?
Somewhere out there in the deepest darkest recesses of the galaxy, there is a Guardians of the Galaxy Easter egg so hidden and obscure that supposedly no one has found it. It is rarer than a mint copy of Action Comics #1, and so beautiful it could melt a unicorn’s eyeballs.
Since the first Guardians opened in 2014, James Gunn has touted the existence of this hidden Easter egg on social media, and even offered up a $100,000 bounty to anyone who could prove it didn’t exist. So far, at least according to Gunn, no one has found this thing. The second Guardians arrived earlier this summer, bringing renewed focus on the hidden egg, and still no one has located it.
There have been some wild theories about this Easter egg (including one that thought it found a secret code buried in some of the film’s intergalactic title cards), but this one, from ScreenCrush’s Ryan Arey, puts forward a theory that’s pretty plausible. It’s certainly not one I’d heard before (who ever thought to look at that one dude’s face that closely?), and as far as I can tell James Gunn hasn’t explicitly debunked it. So watch it above and see what you think. Oh and there’s supposedly a hidden mega-hard-to-find Easter egg in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 also, so start making your YouTube videos about that one now! (We’re chaining Ryan to his edit desk and not letting him up until he finds it.)
