I love wacky film theories. It doesn’t matter to me that the filmmakers most likely didn’t intend these interpretations, but I find it interesting the connections some people make within the movies they enjoy. It could be as ridiculous as a one line cue which leads some people to believe that Chris Pratt’s character in Jurassic World could be the young boy from Jurassic Park, how all Pixar movies exist within the same universe, that Stan Lee Is Playing the Same Character in All His Marvel Cameos, or even us trying to predict the future with a theory on How The Marvel Cinematic Story Might Connect Through Phase 3. Or it could be a much more well reasoned theory, like an explanation of why Top Gun is a deeper movie than you think.
Over the weekend I received an email from a /Film reader named Andy from the UK. He has a theory that all of the Marvel Phase Two movies feature a huge easter egg that we’ve all been missing: the black hood of death. This theory falls on the more ridiculous end of the spectrum but I still find the observation fun. And at very least, this shows that Marvel is over-using the black hood “in disguise” cliche in phase two. Hit the jump to read Andy’s Marvel black hood of death theory.

There’s plenty to enjoy in the surprising Marvel Studios hit Guardians of the Galaxy. Most of the praise for the flick goes to director James Gunn and the primary cast of characters who play the titular ragtag team of misfits. But there’s one actor who deserves some more recognition, and that’s Michael Rooker, who plays the sort-of redneck (or blueneck) Ravager named Yondu.
Rooker is a regular in the films by James Gunn, so much that the two are also very good friends. So it should come as no surprise that if Rooker wants to run something by the filmmaker, he just needs to pick up his cell phone. And that’s exactly what happened as the actor asked the director to put Mallrats co-star Jason Mewes in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Read More »
Avengers: Age of Ultron exploded on the movie world this weekend and, after it was over, much of the talk was likely about the credits scene. We won’t spoil it above the jump but, suffice to say, it’s a big tease to what Phase Three has to hold. It does raise more questions than it answers, though, and we asked Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige about it. He clarified one of the biggest questions held within the scene and then offered an interesting tidbit about it too. Read about the Age of Ultron credit scene below, but beware of spoilers.

Find out what the Marvel Phase Two Star Wars Easter egg is after the jump.
Be warned that spoilers lie ahead for Marvel Phase Two, including minor implied spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man.
