For a while there, it looked like we might finally have an answer to the identity of the fabled last Easter Egg in Guardians Of The Galaxy. ScreenRant's Andrew Dyche offered a theory on the thus-far unrevealed mystery, jumping off James Gunn's recent allusion to others getting close to the Egg with a suggestion of a decoded message hidden in coordinates in the film.
Go and read the theory in full - it's how it deserves to be read - but it all boils down to a message reading "SHH… THIS IS MOMS CANCER… MEREDITH QUILL (E)X” in reference to Ego being Meredith's ex (and Peter's father) and giving her cancer (as revealed in the sequel).
It's a compelling idea, but even if it's true, it's not the missing Easter Egg according to Gunn, who responded to the question pretty strongly:
And before you start accusing him of making up the Egg, he's adamant it's still out there...
At least people are still trying to find it.
