Within the canon of the MCU, including the movies, comic books, tie-in novels, and animated series, is there any canonical information regarding the existence or non-existence of the Easter Bunny as actual physical creatures that exist outside of the in-universe popular culture?

For example, has the Easter Bunny ever been shown to exist, in a similar way to Thor and Loki being real characters upon whom the Norse myths are based?

Conversely, has the Easter Bunny been referenced as being a purely fictional character within the fictional setting of the MCU?

Answers citable to media only please, not supposition.

    Hi, welcome to SF&F. I'm not a Marvel expert to know how this would be answered, but especially if they have been treated differently, or their status has changed over time, it might be better to ask a separate question about each.

  • I'd say the most important factor here is how soon Disney can acquire the Easter Bunny as part of its intellectual property.

The Easter Bunny hasn't been mentioned in the MCU (nor any of its more obvious tie-in materials such as the prose novels, novelisations, graphic novels or games set in the MCU), hence its current canonical status is 'unknown'

The closest we've got so far is a satirical Easter tweet from Marvel UK referencing Thor's apparent inability to tell the difference between a racoon and a rabbit.

Within the Marvel-616 (mainstream comic) continuity the Easter Bunny exists as a fictional character. It is repeatedly mentioned in a wide variety of comic lines including Squirrel Girl, Black Panther, Howard the Duck, Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man, etc. but does not appear to be a real individual, unlike other magical beings such as Santa Claus.
