    James Gunn has said there is still one big Easter Egg that no one has found in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

    One of my theories is that Eson The Searcher is the Easter Egg.

    As I was looking for the missing Easter Egg, I did some research on the characters in the first movie.

    One of the most interesting things I found out was that in the comics, Peter Quill's paternal grandfather was named Eson .

    In the movie, the Guardians are shown footage of a Celestial named Eson the Searcher .

    Now, only looking at the first movie, it sort of seemed like it was a stretch that Gunn was trying to get us to put together Eson having the same name as Peter's grandfather from the comics.

    In Volume 2 however, there may be further evidence to support some …

    So, I was looking at the Infinity Gauntlets and I was trying to figure out if there was any significance the Gauntlets could have in Norse mythology or if it might just be a reference to one of the comic universes where there were 2 Gauntlets.

    I found something very interesting. In both Norse mythology and the comics, Thor possessed járngreipr. Járngreipr are 2 metal gloves that Thor wore. In Norse mythology Thor used them to weild Mjolnir and were considered one of Thor's 3 crucial possessions (járngreipr, Mjolnir, and megingjord). I wasn't able to find much about the gloves from the comics however.

    So, due to one of the Gauntlets being on Asgard and both having Norse designs on them, I think the MCU Infinity Gauntlets are a combination of …

    So, I was looking things up on the Marvel wiki to see what elements of the comics Marvel could be incorporating in Thor: Ragnarok. While I was doing that, I sort of came up with a new Soul Stone location theory. Now, I’m not that familiar with the comics and I’m not sure if theory is really all that great (I still like the Black Panther and the Possessor theories more), but I figured I’d share it anyways.

    So, I was watching a behind the scenes clip of Thor: Ragnarok and it showed Thor and Doctor Strange talking to each other. Strange was holding a map, likely to locate Odin. I looked up maps to see if it could be something from the comics. I found the Map of All Ending, but there wasn’t much information about it. However, I did find that it…

    The Heimdall theory has been around for a couple of years now. The theory is that Heimdall has the Soul Stone. I do not believe this theory, as there are a number of pieces of evidence from the MCU which indicate that he does not have it. This is meant to explain the evidence that disproves this theory.

    The popular theory is that Heimdall’s gem on his armor from Thor: The Dark World is the Soul Stone.

    “The Tesseract is already on Asgard. It is not wise to keep two Infinity Stones so close together.”

    -Volstagg, Thor: The Dark World

    A lot of fans have taken this to mean the Space Stone is the only Infinity Stone on Asgard, and the Asgardians do not want to have more than one Infinity Stone on Asgard due to the danger it presents.

    Therefore, the A…

    I thought I would take a guess of what the second Doctor Strange movie would be about even though it’s pretty far in the future.

    For the main villain, it would be Nightmare.

    I think they could include another important book, like what they did with the Book of Cagliostro. In this movie it would be The Atlantean Dreamwave. In the comics, Strange used the book when he was investigating Ghost Rider’s nightmares.

    As for the major reality threatening conflict, Strange would seek knowledge from Eternity to stopping Dormammu (which was the main plot of Eternity’s very first appearance in Marvel Comics). Strange would find that Nightmare had captured Eternity (which was the main plot of Doctor Strange Vol 1 182).

    I’m not really sure how Mordo would fi…
