Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn took advantage of yesterday’s Facebook outage by teasing the film’s famous undiscovered easter egg.
Guardians of the Galaxy features dozens upon dozens of easter eggs that reference the wider Marvel universe but there’s still one that fans haven’t discovered. For years fans have been searching for the mythical final easter egg that is lodged somewhere in the film’s two-hour run time. Director James Gunn has played coy regarding what the easter egg has entailed, maintaining that it’s something that’s just waiting to be discovered.
During yesterday’s Facebook outage that lasted several hours, many users on Twitter began to make fun of the situation. Several brands and big-name celebrities began tweeting out cheeky tweets about how Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instragam were suffering considerable downtime. The Guardians of the Galaxy director took the outage in stride and trolled fans by revealing that the practically mythic easter egg was available for all to see on Facebook.
For the last seven years, it has remained unclear what exactly the Guardians of the Galaxy easter egg is.
