Pixar Movies Connceted

If you’re a true Pixar Animation fan, then you’ve probably heard all about the meticulously crafted theory that explains how all the movies could exist within the same universe. It’s called The Pixar Theory, and it uses several key details, including some of Pixar’s famous easter eggs, to tie all of the movies together.

Though Pixar Animation has acknowledged the existence of the theory, they haven’t officially confirmed or denied its validity. However, a new video released officially by Disney comes close to affirming the wild theory that connects all the movies. Weaving through every Pixar Animation feature film, from this year’s Finding Dory all the way back to Toy Story, the video acts as a sort of Russian nesting doll of Pixar’s easter eggs that connect each movie to the one that came before it.

In the time since Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been released, fans have already been obsessing about every detail in the movie as if it were a new Harry Potter book.

black mirror connections

By now, you’ve probably binge-watched your way through Black Mirror Season 3 and are trying to decide which episode you enjoyed the most. While you’ve been enjoying Charlie Brooker‘s dark science fiction anthology series, you may not have noticed that all of the episodes are actually connected, albeit loosely. And no, I’m not talking about the fact the connected theme about the consequences of technology. I’m talking about actual storyline and character connections.

Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker has noted that “each episode has a different cast, a different setting, even a different reality. But they’re all about the way we live now – and the way we might be living in 10 minutes’ time if we’re clumsy.” Although recently on a Reddit Ask Me Anything, Booker admitted that they all actually “take place in the same psychological universe” with “sometimes explicit links.” Hit the jump, and we’ll explore the Black Mirror connections.

Deadpool MCU Raft

Fox’s Marvel universe and Disney’s Marvel universe are two completely places. They have to be, for legal reasons — Fox has the rights to basically anything involving mutants, and Disney has just about everything else. So the storylines don’t intersect, the characters don’t meet, and as far as either franchise is concerned the other one simply doesn’t exist. But leave it to Deadpool to try and bend the rules with a sneaky reference.

Apparently one of the Deadpool deleted scenes involves The Raft, an offshore prison designed to hold superpowered people. The location was first introduced in the comics about ten years ago, but you might also remember it from Captain America: Civil War just a few months ago.  Read More »

Who Killed Robin

If you’ve already seen Suicide Squad this weekend, you know that there are plenty of references to the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, not to mention some easter eggs and set-ups for future films in the DC Comics cinematic universe. However, there’s one blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-detail that changes our perspective on a certain event that’s only alluded to in the aforementioned superhero battle.

In Batman v Superman, there’s a key moment where Bruce Wayne takes a moment to glance at the suit of his former sidekick Robin as it’s displayed in a glass case. Spray painted on the suit is, “Ha ha ha! Joke’s on you, Batman!” We’ve all accepted this to mean that The Joker killed Robin, however, a little moment in Suicide Squad indicates that he wasn’t the only one responsible.
