Director James Gunn was sharing GotG facts and trivia on his Facebook this weekend, when he made a remarkable admission: The biggest Easter Egg that Gunn hid in the hit Marvel movie still hasn’t been found.


Here’s what he said, although doesn’t really offer any clues other than its existence:

Jose Francisco Billini Have a great weekend too James Gunn , just one question, have all the Easter eggs in GOTG been revealed? A while back you said there were still quite a few, if not when can we expect them to be revealed? Like · Reply · 17 · September 11 at 3:30pm

James Gunn They have not all been found. No one has found the big one, really. Maybe once someone came close. Like · Reply · 105 · September 11 at 3:33pm

Given that people having been poring over the movie since it hit DVD and Blu-ray last year, it’s pretty surprising that any Easter Egg has been missed—especially one as major as he’s implying. People have gone out of their way to compile all the Eggs found so far, and these lists aren’t short.

So what could it be? How “big” is it? How crazily must it be hidden that people still haven’t figured it out yet? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. But I’m guessing a lot of people will be rewatching GotG tonight and the next few days, so maybe we won’t have to wait too much longer. If you think you know what it is (or have an inside track), email us and let us know!
