After Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn told us in a 2014 interview that there was at least one "big" Easter egg that hadn't yet been detected by the fans, our readers started sending all kinds of ideas.
There was at least one pretty big one -- that the Dark Aster was somehow symbolic of Peter Quill's mother's cancer -- that we thought had promise, but it turns out that Gunn's teased "big" Easter egg remains at large and undetected, as far as the filmmaker is concerned.
During a short conversation with fans yesterday, Gunn told a Facebook user that "They have not all been found. No one has found the big one, really. Maybe once someone came close."
This will no doubt kick off another round of searching -- but don't necessarily expect Gunn to respond right away. He's leaving for Atlanta to start production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens on May 5, 2017. You can get the first movie on DVD and various streaming platforms if you want to go Easter egg hunting.
