A big part of the reason for that is because Marvel is notorious for slipping Easter eggs into their movies and then never telling anyone about them. This leaves it up to fans to figure them out, and it’s become it’s own little cottage industry of sorts. Even more so now that Avengers: Endgame will be the final installment in Phase Three of the MCU.
Many of Marvel’s Easter eggs are so obscure, so subtle that only the superest of superfans would ever know about them
• One of Tony Stark’s enemies, Fin Fang Foom, is seen on a billboard in the first Iron Man movie.
• When Peter Parker is in Principal Morita’s office in Spider-Man: Homecoming there’s a photo of Jim Morita, one of the Howling Commandos who fought beside Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger.
• Speaking of Captain America: The First Avenger, when Steve and Bucky visit the exhibition of future technologies there is a glass display showing the uniform of the original Human Torch.
So, if you doubt that this next fan theory about a potential Easter egg in Captain Marvel which ties it to the Guardians of the Galaxy, you probably shouldn’t.
In a Reddit thread for Captain Marvel Easter eggs, one person may have discovered the one to beat them all.
Of course, you will have had to see the movie to get it, but even if you haven’t and plan to at some point, you can stop here, but definitely bookmark this for afterwards.

Now then, there is a scene in Captain Marvel when Carol Danvers and her best friend Maria’s daughter Monica watch a shooting star fly through the sky.
Now check this out…
1. Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, was taken from Earth by Yondu in 1988.
2. In another scene, in his cameo, Stan Lee, was auditioning for Mallrats, which was released in 1995.
3. Carol was missing for six years before returning to Earth.

Now, before I get all of the “1995-6=1989” comments, just hold your water. Mallrats CAME OUT in 1995. Stan was getting ready to audition. Considering how far in advance auditions take place before a movie is actually released, then that scene would have more than likely have taken place in 1994. 1994-6=1988. Voila!
Of course, it could have just been your run-of-the-mill shooting star, but what fun would that be?
Maybe we’ll find out for sure in…
