Easter already handed a month in the past, however that brief span of time is nothing in comparison with the six years that James Gunn has been ready for Marvel followers to search out an Easter egg within the first Guardians of the Galaxy.

Like the brightly-colored staples of the vacation, film Easter eggs are hidden little bits of enjoyable for the enterprising followers, and the Internet is full of nothing if not enterprising Marvel followers.

With the Guardians films being amongst Marvel’s zaniest, it’s becoming that the hidden easter egg is in that franchise.

Marvel hardly invented the post-credits scene, however they undoubtedly made it their very own with their collection of finish credit score gags. At most films, audiences bolt when the credit begin to roll. Marvel has educated audiences to stay round for bonus scenes. The first one, after the principle credit, sometimes teases the subsequent film not directly. The second one, on the very, very finish of the film is usually a foolish throwaway. Think shawarma in The Avengers or the cat in Captain Marvel.

Both Guardians of the Galaxy films are full of that sort of foolish throwaway humor. What else would one anticipate from a film with a speaking raccoon and a speaking tree? The finish credit of the primary Guardians have been pretty customary.

In the primary credit scene, Baby Groot dances to “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5 as Drax sharpens his knives. In the second, Taneleer Tivan sits within the ruins of his museum as Cosmo licks his face, and Howard the Duck exclaims “gross.” 

Those have been nothing in comparison with the credit score gags on the finish of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. That film will need to have set some sort of report for finish credit scenes,  with at least 5, with these being of the foolish selection. This was the place they caught a Stan Lee cameo. 

What is the lacking Easter egg?

To be clear, no one outdoors of Marvel is aware of what this lacking Easter egg is for certain, but when anyone can discover it, it’s New Rockstars. That YouTube channel is legendary for its prolonged breakdowns of trailers, with its crew inspecting each body and pixel with a positive tooth comb. 

Their examination of the 53-second Stranger Things season four teaser lasted eight minutes. The glimpse of the Loki collection Marvel gave us within the Super Bowl preview was lower than a minute, however New Rockstars turned that into 9 minutes. They’re nothing if not thorough.

The video mentions that different YouTubers have been dedicated to uncovering this thriller egg, which supposedly has one thing to do with Peter’s mom Meredith, who had most cancers and represented a large gap in Star-Lords life. The egg hunters deal with coordinates proven within the first Guardians.

This results in the messages “This is mom’s cancer” and “this isn’t real.” Gunn has instructed these people they’re anyplace from 50 to 70 % appropriate. So shut, however no Howard the Duck cigar. 

What are different ‘Guardians’ Easter eggs?

Marvel films are a veritable bounty of Easter Eggs – a lot so there’s a Ranker listing particularly dedicated to them. Guardians eggs embrace the next: 

“Starhawk and his team of old school Ravagers featured in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are actually the original team of Guardians from the comic books, albeit with a significantly different backstory.” 

“Adam Warlock’s cocoon seems in The Collector’s chamber together with a Chitauri (enemy aliens in The Avengers) and a Dark Elf (enemy from Thor: The Dark World).”

“Adam Warlock was referenced within the unique Guardians of the Galaxy, however his start and trademark “cocoon” have been extra prominently featured in a post-credits scene from Vol. 2.”

Probably none of those are the thriller egg already discussed. With any luck, we’ll discover out after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 ultimately comes out. Knowing Gunn, he’ll in all probability embrace a thriller egg in there too.
