One of the coolest things about watching a new Marvel show or movie is finding the links to the universe. Both the movies and TV shows build these bridges on occasion. This week’s Agent Carter was no exception. There were a ton of links to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, mostly centered on Captain America: The First Avenger. But there was also a pretty huge link to Iron Man 2. Did you catch it? Read about the Agent Carter Iron Man 2 easter egg below. Read More »

The team at Disney Animation Studios loves putting Easter eggs in their movies. When you’re working on a single shot for days, weeks, or even months you’ve got to do something to stay focused and interested. Big Hero 6 is no different, and the film is chock full of gags. “I will say we just generally we have a lot of Easter eggs in this movie,” co-director Chris Williams told us last year. “To the point that we had to really tell our artists to knock it off.”
There are definitely some in the Fred’s room scene but there are actually a bunch tied to that other Disney Animated film everyone is still talking about, Frozen. Big Hero 6 hits Digital HD/ Disney Movies Anywhere February 3 and then Blu-ray Combo Pack on February 24th. To tease that announcement, Disney has revealed one of the disc’s features, a video pointing out all the Frozen Easter Eggs in Big Hero 6.
Watch that video below, and read a previously unpublished discussion /Film had with directors Chris Williams and Don Hall about the relationship between Frozen and Big Hero 6. Read More »

While lots of the early November movie buzz has been about Interstellar, definitely start looking forward to Big Hero 6. It’s an action-packed delight. A wonderful blend of superhero origin story and buddy movie with a big giant heart.
In the film, Hiro and his brother’s robot Baymax, form a superhero team to try and stop a rising super-villain. And while most of the marketing and hype has been about the admittedly awesome Baymax, the other four characters are really fantastic too. In particular, TJ Miller as Fred, a stoner comic book geek with a Bruce Wayne-sized secret, is one film fans are sure to latch onto.
During one scene in particular, the whole team visits Fred’s room and it’s geek nirvana. Shelves and shelves of toys, books, collectibles and more. And when I asked directors Don Hall and Chris Williams about it, they confirmed this is one scene fans are really going to want to keep an eye on because it’s filled with Disney and Marvel references.
Below, read our conversation about Fred’s Easter Egg filled room and why you need to stay through the credits starting on November 7. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy might be Marvel’s most elaborate film to date when it comes to easter eggs. I’ve watched the film twice now and have noticed a ton of inside jokes, references to characters from the comic books, 1980’s callbacks and more.I attempted to compile the most complete listing of Guardians of the Galaxy easter eggs, including (possible spoilers teased in the following):
- Who is Peter Quill’s father? Does Peter Quill’s mother have a relationship with Captain America?
- The geography of the four revealed Infinity Gems (which stones have been revealed and where are they?)
- Many Marvel comic book characters you didn’t see appear in Guardians (including a prominent female Krylorian techno-artist)
- A look at many of the treasures which can be seen inside The Collector’s museum (who or what is in the cocoon?)
- 8 cameo appearances from filmmakers, actors and even pets revealed (Nathan Fillion and Seth Green, where?)
- The stars behind the CG characters (who played Rocket on set?)
- A look at the 1980’s pop culture references in the film (did you know Star-Lord’s ship is named after a 1980’s television star?)
- How the comic book canon differs from what appeared on screen
- Funny credits and more

Like all the other Marvel movies before it, this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy is jam-packed with Easter Eggs. An “easter egg” is a hidden visual or audio cue that doesn’t add to a story, and isn’t necessary to see on first watch, but adds to repeat viewings by winking to the fans. Marvel is great at this, stuffing their films with Easter Eggs both very obvious and rather subtle, making all of their movies crazy rewatchable.
The problem with most of these Marvel Easter Eggs is they go by so fast, you often can’t see them until the films hit Blu-ray. That’s why this new video from MTV, Every Marvel Easter Egg Explained In One Video, only goes through last year’s Thor: The Dark World. Even so, it’s still an awesome watch and surely includes some things even the most hard-core fans might have missed. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy opens Friday and hopefully you are making plans to see it. It’s truly a fun ride, jam-packed with awesomeness. However, one scene in particular is extra packed with neat stuff. That’s Benicio Del Toro‘s big scene, in which he appears as the Collector. As his name suggests, the Collector has a lot of different things in his room. Both director James Gunn and producer Kevin Feige told us to be on the lookout for some exciting Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Eggs during the scene.
Below, read their quotes about the scene which include some minor, non-plot related spoilers. Read More »

With all the hype surrounding the new Harry Potter theme park expansion at Universal Studios Orlando, it would have been odd not to include an easter egg or two. Turns out, one of those park teases is from the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. USA Today posted images from the theme park (you can see our extensive coverage here) and in one of them, a few of the creatures who are likely to appear in the film are on display. Check out the image below, and read about where the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie – written by J.K. Rowling herself – will shoot. Read More »

Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 grossed an estimated $92 million in its opening weekend, which was actually a huge win for 20th Century Fox. Why? Because Marvel fans who sat through the Spider-Man credits were greeted with a teaser scene for Fox’s upcoming mutant sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past. You can read more about how that all went down here. Now, you can watch the scene without sitting through the credits. Check out the the Amazing Spider Man 2 post credits X-Men scene below.
