As well as working as a writer/producer on Arrowverse shows Arrow, Vixen and DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow, Marc Guggenheim is also an executive producer on Netflix’s upcoming animated series Trollhunters, which has been co-created by Guillermo del Toro (it premieres on 23 December as an extra special Christmas treat). And it seems Guggenheim is rather proud of his new show.
According to ComicBook.com, he’s already sneaked a Trollhunters Easter egg into a season four episode of Arrow, and there’ll be another one coming in episode 2.11 of DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow.
“Episode 2.11 of Legends, if everything goes according to plan, will feature a little bit of a Trollhunters Easter egg, and actually, Arrow season four included a Trollhunters Easter egg,” he says. “There’s something interesting about writing an Easter egg for a show that nobody’s seen yet into your existing show, but I guess I’m just unusual that way.”
Anybody spot the Arrow Easter egg last season? Anyone fancy scouring their season four DVDs? Will we even spot it if we haven’t seen Trollhunters yet?
Trollhunters features the voice of Anton Yelchin, his final work before his tragic death this year.
