Hugh Jackman Reveals His Favorite Easter Egg In X-Men: Days of Future Past Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.22.2014
Lots of moments to pause when the film hits DVD...
In an interview with IGN, Hugh Jackman and writer Simon Kinberg revealed that there are "easter eggs" in X-Men: Days of Future Past for fans that reference the comics and previous films.
Jackman said: "Maybe funniest or coolest is when he first arrives back in the ‘70s. He lands back in his apartment – and I don't want to tell you where it is. But you should pause it because there's a lot of really cool clues in his apartment. Nick-nacks and stuff that he's got around. And of course it's Wolverine, so literally he wakes up in bed, morning, and within five minutes he's in a massive fight."
Kinberg added: "The scene that takes place after Logan wakes up, at the end of the movie, in the future, is filled with obvious things that are for the fans. But there are also some very subtle things for the fans, when he's walking around the environment in which he wakes up. We wrote it wanting it to be a really deep dive for the fans, so that almost every scene would have little tickles of other moments from the comics, or moments from the movies. But we also wrote it with the intention that it's going to be the most watched X-Men movie of all-time, and if it works, it's going to bring an audience that's never seen these movies, or only casually seen them. So those things need to be invisible for a general audience."
