Godzilla 2 easter egg

Director Michael Dougherty is hard at work directing Godzilla 2, the next movie in Warner Bros. and Legendary’s MonsterVerse. But while this film will set up an eventual conflict between two cinematic titans in 2020’s Godzilla vs. Kong, it will first turn to villains of the past and feature battles between Godzilla and iconic characters like Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah.

Thanks to Dougherty, we know Godzilla 2 will also feature a connection to the 1954 original film that started it all. But what does that link mean for this sequel?

Stephen King easter eggs

Update: Now that The Dark Tower is out, we’ve updated our handy guide to the Stephen King easter eggs hidden in the movie.

With the release of The Dark Tower, it marks the (hopefully) first film adaptation of Stephen King‘s multi-novel magnum opus. Our own Jacob Hall will have a full interview with director Nikolaj Arcel here on the site in the coming days, but during their Comic-Con chat, Arcel teased that The Dark Tower will contain easter eggs reference King’s 1975 novel Salem’s Lot, and we’ve seen in previous trailers that there are references to The Shining, It, and more.

Spider-Man Homecoming Clip

Jennifer Connelly was a late addition to the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast, so much so that we didn’t know about her involvement until the first screenings of the film. Even then, when the full cast list was revealed with the junket press notes, some press who had actually seen the film weren’t even aware of her appearance. It’s not that her role is a surprise, it’s just a bit hidden – we can even call it an easter egg. When I talked with producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal last week, I asked them about the addition of Connelly to the film. Here’s why the Jennifer Connelly Spider-Man Homecoming casting is a fun easter egg.

Red Hulk movie

James Gunn has proven to be one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most valuable players. He’s become the go-to guy for all things cosmic, and his third Guardians of the Galaxy movie will set up the next ten years of Marvel Studios movies. That’s a lot of power for someone who was directing little-seen films like Slither and Super just a few years ago.

In a recent Facebook Q&A, the writer/director revealed that before he became such a vital part of the MCU, there were a couple of other superhero films he dreamed of making, and one of them was a Hulk/Red Hulk movie. Plus, he also confirmed a connection between the original Guardians movie and the character of Adam Warlock, who was introduced at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Get the details below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

guardians of the galaxy vol. 2 concept art

Most of the easter eggs in Marvel Studios films are pretty easy for fans to pick out. Whether it’s a shout-out to a location or character featured in the comics on which the movie is based, or maybe just another Stan Lee cameo, it’s normally not long until a video like this one pops up to break down everything fans may have missed during their first theatrical viewing.

But writer/director James Gunn hid one easter egg in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy so well that fans have been searching for it ever since the movie debuted and haven’t been able to pinpoint it. But that may have changed, because a new theory has arisen and considering what we learned in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it seems pretty damn plausible.
