It's time to re-watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but make sure you've got a magnifying glass and a notepad handy for every frame of the movie. Why? According to writer-director James Gunn, there's still one more easter egg to be found in the sequel. Could it be some super obscure Marvel reference or one so obvious that it evades notice by hiding right under our noses in plain sight?

Gunn revealed this on Twitter after someone asked, "Is there a secret Easter egg no one has found yet in Vol 2?" The director simply replied with "Yes" — and with one word, he's launched one massive MCU easter egg hunt. 

The initial query was part of a thread started by Gunn himself, who was praising a devoted easter egg hunter who is still trying to figure out the final one hidden in the first Guardians. The director said that while people have searched for it since the movie's release in 2014, no one has found it yet. When asked if he'd ever reveal it, Gunn said he would someday, but that Twitter sleuths are getting very close.
