Guardians of the Galaxy is almost four years old, but that doesn't mean fans aren't still discovering new Easter eggs. Indeed, one fan realized that, during Stan Lee's cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy, the text that appears on screen is written in the Skrull language and translates to "excelsior," a word often associated with Lee.
Director James Gunn confirmed via Twitter that Twitter user Danactual had indeed discovered a new Easter egg, earning himself a coveted No-Prize in the process. However, Gunn did note that the Skrull easter egg is not the one that he's been teasing for a very, very long time.
Ok this is an actual Easter egg that hasn’t been found but it is not THE Easter egg. That said, I think you deserve a No-Prize AND it shows there are still Easter eggs to be found in the #GotG films, despite the doubters. https://t.co/MWcVJVil9c— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) March 26, 2018
The news comes shortly after a new synopsis for Captain Marvel further teased the adaptation of "The Kree-Skrull War" and the reappearances of Kree characters Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou) and Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), both of whom first appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy.
