How is a superhero movie supposed to appease die-hard fans while appealing to a new audience? Easter eggs, and lots of them.
I have a lot of sympathy for web designers and programmers. Although they slave away to create incredible software used by millions (or, at least, the good ones do), no-one ever really appreciates their work. Easter eggs are just a tiny portal into their world.
Painting up Easter Eggs is always fun, but what happens when you use Matlab and equations that spit out spirographic art? Some really awesome eggs.
It’s almost second nature for sci-fi to be self-referential—not just to itself, but to the wider pantheon of shows and movies. Doctor Who is no stranger to these references, but last week’s episode, “Face the Raven,” had one that was typically Doctor Who: An Easter Egg, hidden inside another Easter Egg!
Hey, did you hear there’s a new Star Wars movie coming out? In case you’re unclear on the details, Google’s new Search Easter Egg will help remind you.
Now that Ant-Man is in theaters, it’s time to fully discuss some of the bigger spoilers in the film. These involve Avengers, upcoming Marvel characters, new movies, past movies and more.

Pixar movies are always fun to watch because of the characters and the stories and most of all, the personality that each film has. The storytellers and animators of Pixar love to leave little unique bread crumbs in each movie to give the die hard fans something to talk about. Here’s a fun video showing fun easter…
Maybe you’re not the religious type. Maybe you hate hard boiled eggs. Even still, for this week’s Shooting Challenge, I think we can all agree that Easter eggs are a very important message to nature that it got things wrong, and eggs really should come in fuchsia and teal.
A hundred thousand million yums. After watching this chocolate food porn overload from Marks & Spencer, I think I have developed a permanent craving for chocolate. Like, this is forever now. The video is an ad for chocolate Easter Eggs but it features all sorts of chocolate deliciousness that it makes me want to bathe…
Agent Carter has ended, but if you're still trying to piece together the hints and clues for future Marvel movies, or you just like reminiscing about how much fun Agent Carter was, we've got the perfect roundup video right here.
We adored Disney's Big Hero 6. And now we have an exclusive look at all the secret little details hiding in plain sight inside the heroic film starring Baymax.
The animators behind Big Hero 6 hid a few Easter eggs from other Disney films in San Fransokyo, including a few from Frozen. See how Olaf the Snowman and Prince Hans found their way into Big Hero 6.
The Easter egg as a concept can be dated back to rich aristocrats hiding things inside priceless jewellry. But in the modern age, you're far more likely to encounter one when you Konami-code a website, or made some odd menu choices in a game.
If you've seen the first episode of The Flash, then you know there's a shot of a newspaper with a nod to the sister-show Arrow in it. What you did not notice was that the actual text of that article had nothing to do Oliver Queen. It was actually lifted from an io9 article.
Last week, we got a look at the easter eggs in the Marvel Cinematic Universe up through Thor: The Dark World, but Guardians of the Galaxy is particularly packed with references to Marvel's comics, and this video lays out a bunch of them.
The Marvel Studios movies are filled with nods to Marvel's comics and TV shows, and while you probably caught every Stan Lee cameo, you may have missed a few of the allusions lurking in the background. This video attempts to explain them all.
Search Engine Land's Barry Schwartz just discovered a cheeky little Easter egg in the Google for iOS app: Drag the letters out of the Google banner and you can pinball them around your screen. Is it functional? No, but it's fun!
