Turns out they celebrate Easter on Planet Hulk…
Well, maybe not technically, but they do have easter eggs and if you’re good at finding them you might win 1 of four Planet Hulk posters signed by superstar artist Alex Ross.
To celebrate the release of Marvel Animation and Lionsgate Home Entertainment’s Planet Hulk on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download on Tuesday, February 2, 2010, Lionsgate is sponsoring a special Planet Hulk Easter Egg Hunt contest especially for Newsarama readers.
In the animated feature based on the bestselling “Planet Hulk” comic book story, the Hulk is sent into exile into space and crash-lands on the planet Sakaar, where he becomes a fierce gladiator forced into battle for the amusement of the planet’s “Red King” and its natives. During the film’s arena battle scenes, five Marvel “cosmic” characters make cameo “easter egg” appearances, along several appearance of “generic” members one of Marvel Comics’ most famous alien races.
After viewing the film, if you can name all five characters plus identity the alien race, email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Feb. 15, 2010 with “Planet Hulk Easter Egg Hunt” in the subject line and you will become eligible to win one of four special Planet Hulk posters signed by Ross. Four winners will be chosen at random among the readers who submit the correct answers. Lionsgate will notify the winners and arrange delivery of their prize.
Check out Newsarama’s exclusive clip (it’s an arena scene, maybe a part of the answer can be found) and look for more information on Planet Hulk below…

But now the Incredible Hulk crash lands on the distant planet Sakaar, ruled by the tyrannical Red King. Sold into slavery, Hulk becomes the planet’s mightiest gladiator—but his new masters get more than they bargained for when he forges a bond of brotherhood with his fellow fighters: crafty insectoid Miek, ruthless rock-man Korg, ex-shadow priest Hiroim, and the noble-born rebel Elloe.
