Well, we shall begin with a quick flashback: remember when Simba asked Mufasa about the shadowy place in The Lion King? Yes, the deep internet is sort of like such shadowy places. ‘You must never go there’. But if you have the courage and time to delve into the deep, dark internet; you’ll find some really insane and crazy fan theories about your favorite movies. Theories that could change the way you look at those movies. Be warned! we have compiled a list of the craziest fan theories out there so that you don't have to go scouring for them.
Jack Dawson – the Time-traveler
According to few fans, Jack from Titanic was a time-traveler. He had to hustle for money as he did not have the currency from that time period. Okay! Not out of the realm possibility, right? It gets way more interesting. He claims to have gone fishing at Lake Wissota, except the man-made lake wasn't created until 1917, five years after the Titanic sank. Moreover, Jack mentions he would take Rose to Santa Monica Pier to ride on a roller coaster. You guessed it right! There was no roller coaster in Santa Monica back then.
Alfred is Bruce’s Father
This one’s a bummer and we did not see that coming. As per the theory, Alfred and Martha Wayne had an affair, which led to a son – Bruce. With Alfred being the butler, the pair decided to keep everything under wraps. After Thomas and Martha’s death, Alfred, the rightful father, decided to raise Bruce as a surrogate father. So why does this theory exists? it's basically a way of explaining Alfred's near-fanatical devotion to Bruce, despite his young charge's descent into vigilantism. Moreover, in the Dark Knight Trilogy, Alfred isn't a curmudgeonly butler as we see in the comics. He was in the SAS and the idea of a young, handsome British man swooning Martha isn't far fetched.
The Shining is the origin story of the Joker
This one is just crazy! If you haven't seen the cult-classic horror movie, The Shining then you need to watch that now for it’s the origin story for the Joker. The image below explains it all. Mind blown! *poof*
Spock Knows Sherlock
This may very well be more than just a fan theory. The connection arises with a quote : “If you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth”. The line is originally from Sherlock Holmes, and is then quoted in Star Trek, and is then quoted again in the BBC series Sherlock but attributed to Spock in that show. However, in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Spock attributes the quote to "an ancestor of his", which makes him canonically a descendant of Sherlock Holmes himself!
Scooby Doo is Test Subject
We are probably gonna ruin your favorite childhood cartoon show. According to this fan theory, Scooby Doo is actually a test subject from the Cold War and is on the lam from the Soviets. Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? was aired during Cold War and the Soviets had a history of using dogs to further the space race. The Soviets were hellbent on creating super intelligent species of dogs that could replace human astronauts. The experiment accidentally resulted in Scooby mimicking the human speech patterns which is why he can A) talk B) sounds odd doing it. After running away from the Soviets, Scooby befriended Fred, Shaggy, Daphne and Welma. Let that sink in.
