Despite the proximity of Easter it needs to be clear when talking about Easter Eggs in this post, we don’t mean the eggs the Easter bunny hides for you to look for.
In this post an Easter egg is an inside joke or a hidden message that’s intentionally put in a movie, video game, book, etc. These little details are often overseen and only the keen eye spots them. Watching a movie you’ve seen several times before and spotting an Easter egg makes you feel like you just discovered a treasure. Here some DARK DOG favorite examples:
The Dark Knight (2008)
The movie begins with a bank robbery in the middle of the day, where Joker and his accomplices wear clown masks. Joker himself wears a mask that is modeled after the first Joker appearance in the 1960s Batman TV series.
Right before Ron Burgundy is fired from his news channel, his lover/enemy Veronica Corningstone is shown eating in a Mexican restaurant called ‘Escupimos en su Alimento’ which translates to “We spit in your food”. Bon appétit!
Kill Bill Vol.1 (2003)
What’s The Bride’s real name? In flashbacks of her talking to Bill he calls her “kiddo” which leads the audience to believe this is a term of endearment, however if you pay attention and look at the plane ticket she buys to Okinawa you will find her real name is Beatrix Kiddo.
X-Men 2 (2003)
In X-Men 2 director Brian Singer didn’t find room for all X-Men in the story. To make up for it, he snuck them in a different way. In a bar scene the TV is running in the background with a news program where Beast’s more human looking alter ego Dr. Hank McCoy is being interviewed.
Star Wars (1977)
1938 was the year the first masked villain appeared on television in a Republic Pictures serial called The Fighting Devil Dogs. Apparently this first supervillan was the source of inspiration for the costume of Darth Vader.
