Whoever is behind [Jurassic World](movie:32752)'s Twitter page just led fans to a wonderful Easter Egg—that could spell the return of one of the original cast members.

They chose the fitting date of Easter Sunday to tweet an image of dinosaur eggs and a QR code, leading fans on a hunt for answers.

Once scanned, the QR code led to book by the familiar-sounding Ian Malcolm entitled God Creates Dinosaurs.

Though my first instinct was to try to decode the chicken scratch on that Post-it note, it's clear that the book is the true Easter Egg here. And this might lead to the addition of one of the greatest Jurassic Park characters.

Ian Malcom, of course, is none other than this marvelous bastard.

So, the official Jurassic Park Twitter has offered a not-so-subtle nod to Jeff Goldblum's chaos theorist. The book title is a reference to one of Malcolm's many memorable speeches:

God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs.

Laura Dern's character Dr. Ellie Sattler follows that up with the classic line "Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth." This is just one example of how much Jeff Goldblum added to the world of Jurassic Park. If there is anything close to this exchange in Jurassic World, 2015 will be a worthwhile year.

Now the pivotal question: will Ian Malcolm be making an appearance in Jurassic World?

Prior to to this Easter Egg, all signs were pointing to a definitive "no." But now, what else could this possibly mean? Why invoke the name of a beloved character if they won't be coming back?

So, what do you think? Will Ian Malcolm be making an appearance in Jurassic World, or could this mean something else entirely?
