A very subtle and hard-to-find Wolverine Easter Egg has been spotted in Hugh Jackman’s hit movie The Greatest Showman.
Jackman, as you likely know, is absolutely done playing Wolverine. It’s a shame too; just as Marvel is about the get the rights to the character back Jackman has to hang up the claw. Jackman has been quite forthcoming about his desire to be in an Avengers film for quite some time now. Still, it looks like the minds behind Jackman’s latest are big Wolverine fans. This insanely subtle Easter Egg was spotted by Reddit user “irie_feeling” and it’s pretty mind-blowing:
Yes, those are Wolverine’s crossed arms. Now, it’s difficult to tell just how detail-oriented one has to be to spot such an out-of-the-way and subtle reference to the superhero franchise, but thank goodness someone did. This is awesome. Does it mean anything? No, probably not. Still, this is just a lot of fun.
