James Gunn wants to assure fans that he isn’t lying to them when it comes to Guardians of the Galaxy easter eggs and is backing up his claims with $100,000.
When Guardians was released on Blu-ray, Gunn said that there were many Easter eggs within the film that no one had found yet, including one big surprise. Despite the best efforts of many fans and searches, that one “big Easter egg” has yet to be found.
During a recent Q&A on Facebook with Gunn, fans disputed that the Easter egg actually existed but Gunn assured them that the Easter egg is real to the tune of $100,000.
“Do you plan on revealing the big easter egg from Guardians?” one fan posted. When Gunn said he didn’t, another fan added that “It doesn’t exist. The ultimate troll.” This promoted Gunn to take the matter into his own hands and wallet.
