    "I could think of a million answers for this, but this one's my favorite theory:

    If you haven’t seen Avengers: Age Of Ultron in a while, you might forget the smaller details of the movie. One of my favorite funny moments is when Quicksilver sees Thor’s hammer flying past him, then tries to grab onto it, but the hammer falls as soon as he touches it and takes him with it. HOWEVER, in Avengers: Endgame, Captain America tosses the hammer and calls out to Peter Parker, who then uses a web to grab onto the hammer and it flies through the air. Because the hammer never dropped, I think this implies that Peter Parker is a genuinely pure soul who is worthy of wielding the power of Thor."


    3. Also, Mary Jane betrayed Peter B. Parker in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse.

    4. The plot of The Corpse Bride is actually Victor's wedding eve nightmare.

    5. Nina's overprotective mother in Black Swan wasn't real.

    6. The briefcase in Pulp Fiction contains Marsellus Wallace's soul.

    7. Also, Jules in Pulp Fiction and Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are the same person.

    8. The parents of Lilo and Nani from Lilo and Stitch were actually CIA agents.

    9. Sandy died on the beach at the beginning of Grease.

    10. The movie Life was a stealth origin story for Venom.

    11. Andy’s mom in the Toy Story universe is Emily, Jessie’s original owner.

    12. The entire ending — from when Cooper awakes at the space habitat onward — is actually Cooper’s delirium before his death in Interstellar.

    13. Jack from Titanic is actually a time traveler.

    14. The trolls are the true villains in Frozen.

    15. President Snow made the Hunger Games to monitor the districts' strength in The Hunger Games universe.

    16. All of the Pixar films take place in the same universe.

    17. And finally, of course: "Darth Jar Jar" was the evil mastermind in the Star Wars universe.
