I think it is only fair to mention that there is an Easter egg, so that your friend won't leave during the credits.

I would only mention the actual content to people who are not allergic to spoilers, though. Personally I like spoilers, but I know many people who loathe them.

I think that's a reasonable position to be taking.

I might go a bit further and only mention the content to people who ask to be told.

Well, that seems to be one of the more popular polls that I've done. :)

I won't be disclosing the content of the Iron Man 2 Easter Egg but will note that it is probably a moot point for 90+% of my readers anyway. :)
