9 mind-blowing movie fan theories on Joker, James Bond and more

9 hours ago

The best movies leave you thinking about them long after the end credits roll. Some films marinate in the mind more than others, spawning fanciful theories and intriguing 'what ifs' from their dedicated fans.

Is James Bond really just one man? Do the Pixar films exist in a shared universe? And just how did Heath Ledger's Joker get those scars? We look at 9 mind-blowing movie fan theories below...

Heath Ledger's Joker is a war veteran

The Joker appears in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight seemingly out of the blue, an agent of destruction hell-bent on reeking havoc across Gotham. Unlike Jack Nicholson's Jack Napier, we never get to see a backstory for Heath Ledger's incarnation play out.

The Joker himself offers up two contrasting "wanna know how I got these scars?" stories so we can never truly trust the Clown Prince of Crime's explanation. One »

Clive Owen: 'I was never offered James Bond role'

Clive Owen has said that he was never offered the role of James Bond, despite being heavily linked to the series for several years.

The Knick star suggested that it was his role in crime thriller Croupier that helped kick-start his career and put him in people's minds for 007.

"If I hadn't worn that tux in Croupier, I'd still be begging for the parts on cop shows Robson Green turned down!" he told The Express.

Owen was rumoured for the Bond role prior to Daniel Craig's casting in Casino Royale, but reports at the time said that he was turned down after demanding box office profit points in his contract.

"It's easy to keep saying no to a role you're not being offered," Owen added. "Am I going to be the next Sean Connery? No, I'll just be the next Clive Owen."

The opening arc will see Ash Williams's war against the Deadites take him to an entirely new arena - the International Space Station.
