Marvel’s Inhumans miniseries opens in IMAX on September 1, and you’ll be glad it’s on such a big screen — because there are apparently a whole lot of cool easter eggs to find along the way.

In an interview with Collider, director Roel Reine said he’s all about the easter eggs, and took the time to embed as many as he could into the eight-episode event series. Across the MCU, and especially the small screen corner carved out the past few years on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we’ve gleaned some intel about the Kree. Not to mention a boatload of details from the comics that could be dropped in there for keen-eyed fans.

Check out an excerpt from his comments below:

“I love Easter eggs. I’m a big Easter egg guy. I love blogs about people are blogging about it. They always tell me not to look at the blogs, to stay away from this world, but I think you know there is a big audience and you make this project for that audience, for myself, but also for that audience, so I tried to put a lot of Easter eggs in and a lot of Marvel things in. And one of the things I’m really proud of is that the The Kree created the Inhumans. The Kree is kind of the Gods of the Marvel universe for a lot of characters. And The Kree have a special language. A special style of language.

So I had the art director and you will see it when you see the other sets. I had the art director build The Kree language in like an hieroglyphe way. Like it’s been there for ages, before the humans were created. So we build them in the sets. There was a monolith. We had to cover something we had to shoot in Honolulu where we were shooting. So we put a monolith over a statue that we could not see. We put hieroglyphs in there. We have like for example for the Tower of Genesis thing we have this box but it’s like ancient old. But also here we have The Kree kind of language on it. What I’m really proud of. And a lot of fans will love it. And I already saw a blog. Somebody illegally photographed the set like a week ago or two weeks ago and they photographed the monolith in front of the set we were filming and they already talk about it. ‘Oh, it’s The Kree language.’ ‘Oh, it’s so cool.’ I love that stuff.”

The Inhumans two-hour premiere hits IMAX on September 1, and an extended cut hits ABC on September 29.
