Avengers: Endgame Easter Egg Was Actually Pointing to this X-Men MCU Debut All Along!
You guys are not going to believe this! I’ve got here a scoop hot off my own brain that’s going to blow everybody’s minds! Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe pore over every tidbit and morsel to find some hint about what the future might hold — and I’ve discovered something that’s going to put every other fan theory and Easter Egg idea to shame! Because I am just that damn smart!
So OK, we all know that scene in Avengers: Endgame where Okoye mentions an “earthquake under the ocean” to Black Widow. Right? Everybody knows that scene!
Now, a lot of fools thought this was a hint towards Namor the Sub-Mariner. Because it’s underwater, obviously. But that’s nonsense. Namor can’t cause earthquakes. What were those people thinking?!
But I’ve figured it out! The greatest Easter Egg of all time! The first real, proper hint of the X-Men in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Because who causes earthquakes? That’s right: Rictor!
Hello?! Isn’t it obvious? The first mutant ever mentioned in the MCU is going to be that random hanger-on from various X-Force and/or X-Factor comics! Because he causes earthquakes with his mutant powers! And They mentioned earthquakes!
So it must be Rictor! He’s probably going to be the first mutant to ever show up in an MCU movie. The fans are going to love him.
What else could cause that underwater earthquake that was so important it warranted a single line of dialogue in Avengers: Endgame? Are you going to try and tell me it was Avalanche instead of Rictor? Don’t be silly.
Clearly that single, innocuous line of dialogue was hinting towards Rictor and X-Force and mutants in the MCU. It’s so obvious.
There’s no way it was just a natural, undersea event meant to highlight Nat’s growing sense of uselessness. The only sensible meaning is Rictor.
Which obviously also means Shatterstar! You heard it here first folks: MCU Phase 5 will kick off with a Rictor and Shatterstar movie where they go on a journey under the sea!
