8 Unusual Movie Theories That Are Just Crazy Enough To Be True

Most of the time, when people watch movies, they probably assume that what they see is what they get. Yet many details can be open to interpretation, from a passing comment that a character makes to the entire premise of the film.

That’s where fan theories come into play. With the rise of the internet and forums like Reddit and Twitter, it’s easier than ever for folks to share their fascinating ideas about the secrets of their favorite films.

Here, we have eight theories about famous movies that are as outlandish as they are compelling. Each one is sure to change the way you look at these films forever! Warning: this post may contain spoilers!

1. The Avengers: Loki is so brilliant that he actually allowed the Avengers to capture him on purpose.


According to this fan theory, Loki actually wanted the Avengers to form, so he invaded New York City with his army of Chitauri aliens, forcing Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and even his brother Thor to team up.

This way, Loki could give Thanos (the evil mastermind depicted in several Marvel Studios films who will ultimately fight the Avengers in Avengers: Infinity War) the appearance that he was putting up a fight before the Avengers caught him and sent him back to Asgard.


There, Loki could attempt to acquire the Infinity Gauntlet, which allows those who wear it to wield the power of all five Infinity Stones, thus making them powerful enough to rule the universe. (We first got a glimpse of the gauntlet in Thor, by the way.) Capturing the gauntlet would also give Loki a chance to sit on the throne of Asgard, which he does at the end of Thor: The Dark World.

2. The Dark Knight Trilogy: Bruce Wayne’s father is not Thomas Wayne, but actually Alfred.


This may be an upsetting theory for hardcore Batman fans, because it would mean that Martha Wayne actually had an affair with Alfred and never spoke of it to avert a massive scandal. The Waynes were quite a famous family, after all.
