Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn is confident Marvel fans still haven’t found his last key Easter egg in the first Guardians film- so much so, he told one fan he’d pay him $100,000 if he could prove it doesn’t exist.
Guardians of the Galaxy is known for having a long list of Easter eggs that Gunn hid in the film, at least 50 have been discovered so far. Last year, Gunn told fans that there was one major Easter egg that still hadn’t been uncovered, leading fans into a Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory-esque search for the Golden Ticket of MCU clues.
“They have not all been found. No one has found the big one, really,” Gunn said in September 2015. “Maybe once, someone came close.”
Gunn recently took to Facebook to chat with fans about the upcoming sequel, and someone asked whether he’d consider just sharing the final Easter egg with fans, since they hadn’t figured it out yet. Of course, one guy responded that it’s probably because it doesn’t exist- to which Gunn said he would pay the commenter $100,000 if he could prove it. The commenter soon backtracked, because Gunn might have $100K to throw around, but the rest of us probably don’t.
Jokes aside, it does look like this latest interaction has revived the investigation into the final Guardians of the Galaxy Easter egg, at least on the Facebook post. Let’s hope someone finally solves the puzzle before the sequel comes out, otherwise we’ll all be totally embarrassed. Anyone got any ideas?
