The original Guardians of the Galaxy still has fans combing through the footage for easter eggs, including a long-sought-after one teased by director James Gunn.
ComicBook.com was able to visit the set of Gunn's upcoming sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where Gunn's habit of including obscure easter eggs came up once more. If you enjoyed the ones in the original, you'll be beside yourself with joy when the sequel comes out.
"Oh my God. Our Easter egg obsession is insane. And in fact I have the dumbest Easter egg. We have so many incredibly obscure Easter eggs in this movie that it's ridiculous. Yeah, we've been working hard on the Easter eggs. I feel this need to do it now since people have been pouring over stuff so much."
Gunn set the bar high in the original, including characters like Cosmo and Howard The Duck, and even a cocoon that looked a lot like Adam Warlock's. Who knows who will show up in Vol.2.
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn (Slither). The film marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt (Jurassic World) as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora; Dave Bautista (Spectre) as Drax; Vin Diesel (Furious 7) as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper (American Sniper) as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker (Jumper) as Yondu; Karen Gillan (The Big Short) as Nebula; and Sean Gunn (Gilmore Girls) as Kraglin.
