2015 has been a very interesting year for comic book adaptations. Avengers: Age of Ultron didn’t live up to its predecessor critically or financially, an Edgar Wright-less Ant-Man was released, Fantastic Four was a crushing disappointment and a huge mess, Kingsman: The Secret Service vastly overperformed, and Marvel TV easily stole the show on Netflix.
Regardless of whether you loved or loathed the movies above though, they all featured some very cool Easter Eggs. Whether we’re talking about nods to the source material or something a little more obscure, all of them delivered on that front this year in very different ways.
So, out of all of the almost countless Easter Eggs to grace the big screen in 2015’s comic book movies, which were the very best? Here you will find our ten favourites which easily stand out as the most awesome and hard to spot.

10. “Anal” (Kingsman: The Secret Service)
Kingsman: The Secret Serviced ended with a kidnapped Scandinavian Princess making good on her promise to Eggsy to allow him to have anal sex with her if he were to save the day. Needless to say, this ended up generating some predictable controversy on social media, something which Matthew Vaughn wasn’t too happy about after being deemed a misogynist.
Regardless, while this adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’ comic book series featured a handful of nods to that, perhaps the funniest (which was definitely missed by the majority, but confirmed by Taron Egerton) is the fact that the code Eggsy punches into the door to release the Princess actually spells “Anal”, 2015’s filthiest Easter Egg by a long way.
