22 Whedonverse Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed

Since Buffy the Vampire Slayer appeared on The WB in the '90s, Joss Whedon has slowly taken over Hollywood with sci-fi westerns, meta horror films, and two little movies about a ragtag group of super friends called The Avengers. In each one of his films or television shows, he makes sure to include multiple Easter eggs and references to his friends, movies he likes, and even to his other shows. As with everything he does, there are multiple layers to Joss Whedon Easter eggs, and the references on this list are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Whedonverse Easter eggs that you might have missed.

If you’ve only seen The Avengers and haven’t truly been baptized in the church of Whedon, then a lot of the Easter eggs in Joss Whedon shows are probably going to go over your head. Please read on, but if you have no clue what a Hellmouth is, you’re going to need to go watch every episode of Buffy, then come back and finish the list. Some of these Easter eggs are huge, in your face references, while others are small flashes that even a lot of big fans definitely missed if they weren’t paying attention.

So did you recognize any of these Whedonverse Easter eggs? Is there anything that we missed that you think should be included? Even if you didn’t, leave us a comment and let’s talk about how criminally underrated Dollhouse was.
