How Terminator: Dark Fate Should Have Opened

Terminator: Dark Fate attempted to reinvigorate the sci-fi action franchise last year, but fans just didn’t want to take a risk on being disappointed yet again after two false starts in Terminator Salvation and Terminator: Genisys. The movie was a box office disappointment, and that’s rather unfortunate since there was a promising new spark in the franchise here. But perhaps the movie would have fared better if it would have gone in a different direction by getting some help from another time traveling franchise. Find out what we’re talking about in How Terminator: Dark Fate Should Have Ended. Read More »

VOTD: How ‘Joker’ Should Have Ended

How Joker Should Have Ended

For better or worse, Joker is likely going to be a big contender during awards season. Sure, it’s nice that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences might pay more attention to a genre that has mostly only ever been popular among general audiences, but it’s a shame that the movie had to be one with so little to actually say. But I digress.

How It Should Have Ended is here to give Joker the conclusion that would have made everyone happy, including Arthur Fleck himself. After all, if the struggling comedian and mentally unstable guy was able to grow up as an orphan in the Wayne family, we might have seen a much different superhero emerge after Thomas and Martha Wayne’s death. But that’s not the only kooky ending they’ve come up with. Find out how Joker should have ended below. Read More »

How Godzilla: King of the Monsters Should Have Ended

Godzilla may have been King of the Monsters this past summer, but the sequel wasn’t quite king of the box office with only $110.5 million pulled in domestically after a budget of $170 million. That’s not necessarily a bomb, but it’s a little disappointing by blockbuster standards. Of course, that won’t stop Godzilla vs Kong from arriving next spring, and it certainly didn’t stop the folks at How It Should Have Ended from pointing out some of the leaps in logic to allow the human plot to unfold in the sequel.

How Spider-Man Far From Home Should Have Ended

Now that Spider-Man is seemingly leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’re probably not even worried about how Spider-Man: Far From Home should have ended at this point. But considering the huge cliffhanger that the mid-credits scene left in our laps, maybe the forthcoming re-release of the final chapter of Phase Three of the MCU should have a scene that makes it easier for Sony Pictures to branch off into their own world, maybe by suddenly introducing the multi-verse for real this time. But since that’s just not going to happen, here’s how Spider-Man: Far From Home should have ended. Read More »

How Venom Should Have Ended

Despite a fascinatingly goofy performance by Tom Hardy doing his best impression of a tar-covered, monstrous version of The Mask, it’s probably safe to say that Venom should have ended before it made it to theaters. But since we saw an entire film of a timid, sweaty, tater-tot loving Eddie Brock with no Spider-Man in sight, it’s up to the folks at How It Should Have Ended to show us how this movie should have gone instead. And in this case, it should come as no surprise to see that Venom could have been over almost as soon as it started.

How Avengers Endgame Should Have Ended

As Doctor Strange told us in Avengers: Infinity War, there was only one path that saw Earth’s mightiest heroes defeating Thanos in Avengers: Endgame. But that didn’t stop the people at How It Should Have Ended from pointing out the various ways in which the events of Marvel’s epic summer blockbuster could have gone much differently. Some of these paths involve questions that fans had after repeat viewings of the movie, but many of them can simply be debunked by Doctor Strange’s singular vision of victory. Even so, you can find out how Avengers Endgame should have ended below. Read More »

How Aladdin Should Have Ended

This weekend brings Disney’s remake of their 1992 animated classic Aladdin to theaters. If the early buzz is to be believed, the movie is surprisingly better than the marketing has indicated so far, though with only 60% on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s clearly not impressing everyone.

But before you get to this updated version of Aladdin, it’s time to look back at the original Disney version to see how it should have ended. Because if you think about it, Aladdin shouldn’t have really had a problem with being a real prince and marry Princess Jasmine. He really doesn’t understand how wishes from genie’s work.

How Captain Marvel Should Have Ended

Captain Marvel was the last film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to hit the big screen before Avengers: Endgame kicked off the summer box office with a bang. Though the film does a solid job introducing us to Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as the Air Force pilot turned cosmic superhero known as Captain Marvel, it’s held back slightly by feeling like a set-up for her character to make a big impact in Avengers: Endgame. Thankfully, the folks at How It Should Have Ended figured out how to take care of this much more quickly.

How Bumblebee Should Have Ended

Bumblebee is now available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and digital download, bringing the best Transformers movie in over a decade to the comfort of your own home. However, even though the Transformers spin-off that takes us back to the 1980s is a refreshing, charming and outstanding soft reboot of the toy franchise, that doesn’t mean it’s not without some issues that could have easily been resolved if the movie had a totally different ending, which could have come pretty much right at the beginning.

How Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse Should Have Ended

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse brings together some of the various Spider-People spread across different dimensions. So it only makes sense that How It Should Have Ended acknowledges all the different proposed endings they’ve done for all the previous Spider-Man movies in order to properly play in this animated universe. They even do a solid job of parodying the opening sequence that introduces the “original” Spider-Man in the movie.
