The best thing about a movie or franchise is the post-release buzz. There are these keen observers who watch a movie multiple times and form theories that you can never imagine. For example, a fan has calculated how rich Harry Potter would be if he stayed in London, by converting the currency and counting the coins that were shown in that brief sequence in Harry's Gringotts Vault (he wasn't that rich). There is also a theory that The Shining is actually Stanley Kubrick's version of an apology for staging the moon landings (another wild theory). These crazy theories don't end here and some of them are so convincing, that you might just believe in them. The last decade has given us some amazing movies and franchises, and the fans have some things to say about them.
Fast and Furious
You might love or hate the Fast and Furious franchise, but is sure as hell entertaining. According to a Redditor called DoktorDragon, Fast and Furious is adapted from Dungeons and Dragons. There is a new villain with every level. The old characters pop in to help from time to time. The flashier the car, the more points you have. The character traits and age remain the same, they just level up. And of course, Justin Lin is the Dungeon Master. Uncanny, isn't it?
Mad Max: Fury Road
While we constantly think and talk about the Apocalypse, when and how it's actually going to come about (natural, machines or zombies), we can be sure we don't really want it to occur. The concept of apocalypse comes from our lore, where they also talk about the Four Horsemen who accompanied it. EldarCorsair, another Redditor, is of the opinion that Mad Max in the movie is actually one of these four horsemen – Death. The other three are represented by the Warlords who rule over the world. Max becomes Death because he spreads it wherever he goes. That does make sense, doesn't it?
The Dark Knight
Heath Ledger's Joker is many things, and he maybe a war veteran as well. His familiarity and easy access to weapons support the theory. But the argument that every gangster will have that too raises a doubt. In one of the scenes, he talks about a bus full of soldiers blowing up, and his planning screams military experience. That can also explain how he got his scars and his behavior might just be the result of PTSD.
We have seen two versions of Deadpool played by the same actor. But that is not the only thing that's strange. Deadpool is known for breaking the fourth wall in the comics, but he didn't do so when he was first introduced in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. So what changed? He died in the Origins and according to a fan, he remembers dying in that movie. Days of the Future Past changed everything, but maybe Wade Wilson remembers the events that occurred before that. It is enough to make anyone break the fourth wall.
The end of Inception has us confused as to whether Cobb was still in a dream. But not this fan who figured out that Cobb's Totem was not the top, but his wedding ring. Whenever he was in the dream world, his ring magically appeared on his finger, but not when he came back. The absence of the ring in the last scene proves that he was in fact not in a dream.
Toy Story 3
We all remember the notorious Sid from the first movie and how he terrorized his toys. In the third movie, we catch a glimpse of him cleaning garbage and think that his crimes have caught up with him. One fan thinks that Sid has now become a toy rescuer who rescues the toys that are thrown out. Since he is the only one who knows about the parallel world of toys, the theory seems more likely.
In the last couple of movies, we learned how the Horcrux can have an adverse effect on people around it. We also learned that Harry was, in fact, a Horcrux. A fan debates that the Dursleys were not really unpleasant people. Their behavior resulted from being around Harry for many years. If you notice, their behavior mellows down each time Harry comes home for holidays and in the end, Dudley is even sad to see him go. There's also a theory that Petunia is a witch, but let's not get into that.
This theory might sound far-fetched, but the director has confirmed it too. Elsa's parents in Frozen were shipwrecked and made their way to a jungle where they died, just after giving birth to Tarzan. Yes, that Tarzan whose origins started with a burning boat somewhere in the ocean.
Bond, James Bond. He is someone you cannot hate. He gets the coolest gadgets and the gorgeous ladies. In the end, he always saves the day. But do you know like 007, James Bond is also a code name? This is easy to believe because how else would you explain so many faces behind one name.
Loki planned for his plan to fail. He needed to secure his return to Asgard after the events of the first movie. But he could not just walk into the realm. That is why he concocted this grand scheme to make sure that Thor takes him back again. Loki is surely a bigger mastermind than we thought.
