Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has been gleefully withholding the final Guardians of the Galaxy Easter egg from fans for years, but a new video from one clickbait website claims to have uncovered the truth at last!
ScreenCrush reporter "Ryan" created a YouTube video laying out his theory on what the mysterious Easter egg, referred to by Gunn as "the big one" and the subject of incredible fan obsession, could be. Gunn has repeatedly denied fan attempts to reveal his secret, and has sworn not to reveal the secret until his deathbed.
"Ryan" theorizes that the Easter egg takes place during a scene with the collector where a Celestial is shown wiping out a planet after the planet was deemed unworthy, probably because they elected Donald Trump president. "Ryan" claims the planet is Jotunheim, land of the Frost Giants from the Thor movies, and that one of the people being zapped by the unnamed Celestial (sources close to Gunn reveal the Celestial's name is "Bob") is none other than Laufey, head Frost Giant honcho and father of Loki.
Is he right?
Gunn hasn't responded yet, and in fact hasn't tweeted in more than 24 hours, which is extremely unusual for the outspoken director, whose social media posts are estimated to fuel at least 15% of the internet's click economy on their own.
