As you might expect, Thor: Ragnarok is going to be packed with easter eggs for the Marvel faithful, but there is one sequence in particular fans will want to pay attention to.
During the Thor: Ragnarok press conference, the cast sat down with Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige to talk about the film and what fans can expect. During the conference Feige was asked about some trash piles that populate one particular scene, and if those will contain any easter eggs for fans.
"The biggest easter eggs are on the side of this current palace," Feige said. "The fact that there are previous Grandmaster champions that we see as one for Hulk is being constructed, and those are all sort of easter eggs for the deeper comics universe. They may or may not ever show up in the cinematic universe, but we thought it would be fun to celebrate."
It will be interesting to see who else Marvel puts up as a Grandmaster champion. Could fans see characters like Nova, Darkhawk, or Beta Ray Bill alluded to? Who knows, but you know you'll be paying attention to that scene to find out. Yeah, Darkhawk is probably a stretch, but a man can dream!
After Feige finished, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi offered up another easter egg that is in the trash pile, and you can take that term quite literally.
"In the trash
You know there will be so many fans who try and get the first screenshot of that egg, so much so that they actually might miss a real easter egg in the process. Actually, that makes sense, doesn't it? Waititi wants you to pay attention to the actual easter egg so you'll miss the big easter egg right next to it...BOOM! Figured it out, can't outsmart me Taika.
