James Gunn Shoots Down Galactus Easter Egg Theory

Ever since director James Gunn confirmed that there was still one big Easter egg that fans hadn't been able to find in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, devoted watchers have been searching every frame of the film in the hopes of finding what has now become the infamous Guardians Easter egg.

Many fans have had their own theories over the years, some sharing their findings online either on Twitter or with YouTube videos and, every time, James Gunn felt compelled to step out and say nope, sorry, try again. It was only a few days ago that a new Easter egg theory gained traction online, with a fan believing it had ties to Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds from Marvel's comic books.

The theory seemed sound -- until Gunn once again came out of the woodwork to shoot it down. "No, he's not there in any way," the director tweeted.

Therefore, it's back to square one for the Guardians of the Galaxy Easter egg hunters. The hunt, as they say, will simply have to continue.
