Logan is dominating theaters this weekend, and comic book fans all over the world are ready to call it one of the all-time best.
The movie took an incredibly serious look at regret, living up to your expectations, and meeting the end of your life head-on. Because of the deep subject matter, and the fact that James Mangold wanted to make the film a standalone affair, there weren't a ton of teases or Easter Eggs hidden throughout.
That being said, the Easter Eggs that did make it into the film were all very well-placed. Each one was a deep cut into the X-Men lore, and they all came as a total surprise to fans.
If you missed any of these great Easter Eggs, we've got you covered. Head through the gallery to see the best hidden gems from Logan!
The Cable tease was probably the most widely-recognized Easter Egg from Logan, although it didn't take place during the film itself.
In the Deadpool-centric pre-credits scene, Wade Wilson changes into his Deadpool costume in an old phone booth. While he's inside, fans noticed the words "Nathan Summers Cumming Soon" written on the frame.
Nathan Summers, of course, is the real name of Cable. The character is confirmed to appear in the next Deadpool movie.prevnext
As far as Easter Eggs inside the actual movie go, the Avalanche nod was one of the most popular.
Rictor, the leader of the children from the X-23 program, had the power to move rocks and earth with his mind. When Logan looked over Rictor's file, Dominikos Patrakis was listed as his DNA source. That name is the alter ego of the classic villain, Avalanche.prevnext
Throughout the film, Logan referred to the Transigen company by another name - Alkali. Fans of the X-Men movies immediately recognized that name as a part of Wolverine's past.
Alkali Lake was the location of the original Weapon X Program, and that same company is the one that eventually became Transigen. The carryover is the reason the company had Logan's DNA in the first place.prevnext
Another one of the files that Logan flipped through contained the name of an old X-Men character.
Christopher Bradley was listed as his DNA source, and that character was featured in the first Logan solo film, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Dominic Monaghan portrayed the character in the movie.prevnext
The score of the film offered a nod to the comics that the movie was based on, but you had to check out the track-listing in order to catch it.
The fourth song on the soundtrack is titled 'Old Man Logan', which is a direct tie to the comics. The 'Old Man Logan' storyline, written by Mark Millar, was the original source for Logan's story. There were a lot of differences between the comic and film, though.prevnext
When Logan was picking up a passengers at the cemetery - at the beginning of the movie - hardcore comic fans noticed a tie to plenty of Marvel books.
The name of the area was Greenwood Cemetery, and it has been used throughout Marvel comics for some time. Captain America's memorial is in Greenwood in the Ultimates storyline, and Sue Storm was buried there after her death.prev
