WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3

James Gunn has told fans there's one very hidden Easter egg in the latest Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

One of the benefits of having a huge cinematic universe based off decades of comics is being able to refer to all sorts of different parts of it in ways that the audience might not realise at first.

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has often enjoyed teasing fans with the Easter eggs hidden in his movies, and apparently there's major ones embedded in each of the three movies which fans haven't figured out.

The director's attention to detail is such that he's released around 600 versions of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 so they fit properly on the different cinema screens, so you can bet he enjoys hiding a few clues for viewers in his films too.

Marvel fans are saying that the latest adventure with the Guardians is the best MCU movie for years and a fitting apparent send-off for the team of spacefaring heroes, but there's something in there they haven't spotted.

In a recent 'yes or no' Twitter Q&A with fans Gunn was asked if the third movie had a major Easter egg in it like the first Guardians of the Galaxy film he answered in the affirmative.

As for what that Easter egg is, we don't know the answer but we're sure fans will have a fine time trying to figure it all out.

I suppose it's up to you the viewers to get watching the film and try to figure out this mystery, but that's not the only Easter egg in the films which fans have yet to fully crack.

That of course is if you can stomach some of the darker and gorier bits in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, as while it's got a PG-13 age rating the film really takes what you can do with such a rating and fills it to the brim.

If you can push through some of the more traumatizing moments then you can get to studying the film in a bid to become the person who solves the mystery of just what this new Easter egg is, and the internet will (probably) love you for it.

Last year Gunn stopped talking about people's guesses for the Easter eggs in the first two Guardians movies as he didn't want to risk spoiling the third one, and he has insisted that despite what some viewers think there is a hidden easter egg in the second movie which 'people haven't even begun to figure out'.

One fan theory Gunn did confirm was that one of the trilogy's most wholesome moments featuring Groot (Vin Diesel) right at the end of the third movie was meant to represent the audience finally understanding him properly.

Near the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 the giant tree known for being unable to say more than 'I am Groot' (and 'we are Groot' that one time) instead says 'I love you guys'.

The director confirmed that he wasn't actually saying anything different than usual, it's just that we the audience have become good enough friends with Groot that we can now properly understand what he's saying.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is in cinemas now.
