The X-Men have over fifty years of history in the comics, as well as a movie series that’s 16 years old and still going strong (perhaps stronger than ever). As such, X-Men: Apocalypse is in a position to stuff itself silly with easter eggs, references and trivia.
From the opening scene set in ancient Egypt – that calls back to classic film Land of The Pharoahs – to the final moments which will cause many an X-fan to squee with excitement, Bryan Singer’s ninth entry in the franchise is a celebration of the X-Men mythos, as well as a call back to other cinematic influences of the director’s. For instance, Storm watches the Star Trek episode “Who Mourns For Adonais?” at one point, which is about a powerful creature who thinks of himself as a god. Sound familiar?
With an enourmous spoiler warning for those yet to see the movie, let’s take a look at 10 of the most awesome easter eggs to be found in X-Men: Apocalypse. If we’ve missed one, be sure to let us know in the comments section down below.
