Has a three-year-old secret from Guardians Of The Galaxy finally been figured out?

Marvel love their secrets and surprises.

Lots of fans have found out neat little additions in their favourite superhero movies by freeze framing specific scenes and looking for stuff in the background.

The entire Marvel Cinematic Universe is full of crossing points, with events from one movie having direct influence on what might happen in a different character's movie, and so on.

Writer/director James Gunn, who has delivered the two Guardians Of The Galaxy movies for Marvel, has stated that there is one major Easter Egg still undiscovered in the first movie, and that nobody has guessed it correctly yet.

There has no sign of anyone getting close to guessing it correctly, which must be absolutely MADDENING for fans of the GOTG series.


And then...

Yes, one of the folks at ScreenCrush believes that they have finally figured it out.

We won't spoil the fun for you, but while it doesn't exactly alter the shape of the MCU as we know it, it does bring some very interesting connections between the Guardians Of The Galaxy and another member of the Avengers that most people wouldn't have even realised was there.

As of the time of writing, James Gunn has not confirmed or denied that this is the same Easter Egg he has been alluding to, so now we just wait and see if ScreenCrush got it right or if we need to keep looking.
