With the release of Guardians of the Galaxy last weekend, comic book websites have been trampling over each other to publish quickly researched articles showcasing all the "Easter eggs" that appeared in the movie. For instance, you might not have known this, but Star-Lord is actually a character from the Marvel comic books. Shocking, I know!
Since we here at The Outhouse are also in the business of doing anything for hits (see our banner above if you don't believe me), we've compiled a list of Easter eggs we noticed during our viewing of the film over the weekend.
Without any further ado, here's six Easter eggs from Guardians of the Galaxy that no one but The Outhouse has found (so far)!
Rocket was too busy talking trash, but we easily spotted this Easter egg lying on the ground behind him. We're guessing this is a reference to the fabled Day After Easter Raccoon, who some cultures believe is responsible for picking up all the Easter eggs left out after Easter.
Sure, The Collector had Dr. Strange, Wolverine and Superman trapped amongst his collection, but more importantly, he also had this Easter egg sitting out in the open on top of a box.
No one picked up on the fact that one of Yondu's Ravagers had an Easter egg for a head... until now! We're pretty sure that Ravager was also played by Vin Diesel, judging from the similar head shape and distinctive stripe pattern the two share.
If your head was in the clouds during the epic spaceship battle, you might have missed this Easter egg. This particular Easter egg might be a reference to a comic book that has nothing to do with Guardians of the Galaxy. It's pretty far fetched, but we're attempting to assert how many obscure comics we know by mentioning them as often as possible.
Keen-eyed Drax had no problem spotting this Easter egg. What about you? We're pretty sure this is a pithy pop culture reference of some sort, probably relating to a 1980s movie that everyone has watched. Did you know that Star-Lord makes a bunch of movie references in Guardians of the Galaxy? Oh... you did. I guess you're not one of the borderline comatose people we're writing this article for.
We hope you stayed till the end of the credits, because if you missed this post-credits scene, you missed the biggest Easter egg of them all! Clearly, this is a reference to Marvel's owner Disney and their beloved character Donald Egghead Duck.
Bonus Easter Egg: We're expecting to recycle Donald Duck/Guardians of the Galaxy jokes in future articles, so keep your eye out for those. Just remember, if you paint a tired joke in bright colors, you can call it an Easter Egg and reference it a bunch of times and no one is allowed to get mad at you.
