This is not the first time Google honors a movie with a easter egg on the search page. In April of this year, a snap of fingers from the Thanos character in the Avengers: Ultimatum film made the search results disappear like dust, just like in the saga movies. Other specials were also added to the search engine, such as the Wimbledon tournament in July this year, which released a tennis game on the results page.
