Do you think you found all of the awesome Easter Eggs in Shazam! earlier this year? Think again. Asher Angel has just revealed that there's an Annabelle Easter egg you may have missed if you weren't watching the first few minutes closely.

Angel recently made an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 to promote his film's Blu-ray and DVD release. While speaking to Cinemablend, the young star shared the awesome Easter egg he himself missed while working on the DC Extended Universe flick.

"The one that pops right into my head is probably the scene [where] Billy is in the pawnshop and the Annabelle doll is right there," Angel said. "That for me, I didn't see that the first time I saw the movie. The second time I watched it, I was like, 'Oh my gosh, it's the Annabelle doll!'"

So what is Annabelle doing in Shazam! in the first place? Angel was quick to remind people about their director's past.

"It's crazy because our director David Sandberg, he directed Annabelle," he said.

That's right, in case you need a refresher, David F. Sandberg actually worked on Annabelle: Creation before directing a superhero film. Before that, Sandberg is responsible for the short film Lights Out and the full-length 2016 feature that followed it.

We're certainly loving the idea that Annabelle somehow turned up in Shazam! Perhaps we'll get to see more awesome Easter eggs in the highly anticipated sequel soon.

The Shazam! Blu-ray and DVD were released on July 16.
