Is Upside Down Really a Portal to Middle-Earth? Stranger Things Stars Discuss the Possibilities of Samwise’s Return to Frodo

#Upside #Portal #MiddleEarth #Stranger #Stars #Discuss #Possibilities #Samwises #Return #Frodo

Stranger Things is not just a show. It’s a major phenomenon all over the globe. Even since the show first came out in 2016, people have constantly been talking about it. These talks only intensify when a new season drops. And naturally, when a season like the latest one releases, people talk about it in equal magnitude.

A testament to this is how Stranger Things is dominating Twitter by remaining at the top trending spot for almost a month. But these talks and debates also take the form of theories. And fan theories for the fourth season have been coming in even before the new season was released.

But a new fan theory suggests Stranger Things‘ connection with one of the greatest franchises ever: The Lord of The Rings. Let us see what the theory is and does it make sense.

Are Stranger Things and The Lord of the Rings connected?

Fan theories have been an essential part of Stranger Things, and even the show creators have praised some in the past.

So that’s why the cast of the newest season, including Joe Keery, Natalia Dyer, Maya Hawke, and Joseph Quinn, took turns reading some of the most popular theories regarding the show.

While many of these theories were regarding the series and its characters, a particular one linked the horror drama series to what can be considered the most influential franchise of all time, The Lord of The Rings.

The theory suggested that: “The Upside Down is just another portal to Middle-Earth. Samwise has gone to return to Frodo, his one true love.”

The theory calls back to the season two character of Bob Newby. Bob had a brief yet potent role in season two as he was the love interest to Winona Ryder‘s Joyce Byers.

Bob was played by none other than Sean Astin, who everyone shall remember as Samwise Gamgee, the faithful companion of Frodo.

Newby was killed in the second season. So the theory suggests somewhat of a happy ending for the character. But unfortunately, it all seems like a way of wanting a happy ending for a character who did not get one.

What do you guys think? Can the theory be true? Is Samwise with Frodo in The Shire? Feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments.

Stream Stranger Things only on Netflix.

“Time loops, portals, doorways to other realms”: Why Zack Snyder’s Take on Zombies in Army of the Dead Is the Freshest Breath of Air for the Genre

During the height of the pandemic, when we were all facing a dearth of content, Army of the Dead arrived just in time to entertain the audiences. Justice League director Zack Snyder was helming the Dave Bautista-led ensemble film. Although marketed as a zombie film, the movie didn’t follow the familiar formula of so many other popular zombie films or movies like Walking Dead or Zombieland. Snyder was on a mission to deconstruct the genre, and he did!

Army of the Dead follows a group of mercenaries who plan to pull a Los Angeles casino heist, overrun by zombies. 

Zack Snyder shattered the stereotypical zombie survival film with Army of the Dead

Snyder introduced a heist tale in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. And he also added some sci-fi elements to it. The movie spawned a time loop theory. According to it the characters were stuck in a time loop and were doing the same mission again and again. 

He turned the survival genre on its head and did something entirely new with it. That relegated the film to a genre-breaking status. He had previously stated that he wanted to create an unprecedented franchise where “the deconstruction of different genres is actually part of the way.”

Speculations about Planet of the Dead

Netflix confirmed a sequel for the hit movie in 2021. Snyder flirted with the idea of a time loop in the prequel, so for the next sequel, Planet of the Dead, chances are that he might play with the idea of zombie portals.

“I think the time loops, portals, doorways to other realms, things of that nature, are very much in play,” he had teased. If he does plan to introduce different realms in the next film, it might include aliens too. But considering how Zack Snyder loves subverting expectations, these aliens could act as the savior of humankind. Anime series, Army of the Dead: Los Vegas is also said to arrive later this year.

From a Herd of Fighters to Future-Oriented Individuals, Fans Predict the Destiny for ‘Cobra Kai’ Characters

#Herd #Fighters #FutureOriented #Individuals #Fans #Predict #Destiny #Cobra #Kai #Characters

When the karate universe introduced us to the kids from the movie, we could predict Daniel LaRusso to be an entrepreneur. He started his business first business with his sensei Mr. Miyagi while training as well. But these Cobra Kai kids live in a different era. They have a vast field to explore for their careers.

Throughout the series, we have seen that each of these kids has a unique quality. They have skills other than greater fighting techniques. The fans of the show have observed these characters. They have thought about the future of the Cobra Kai kids after the final All-Valley Tournament. Fans have made their theories based on their observations of the skills of the characters.

From Karate to career: the Cobra Kai kids’ future prediction

Everyone has to do something for their survival. In today’s world, if you have the needed skills, you can survive easily. And if you turn your passion into a career, you will never fail at it. “Man, who works for passion, is always richer than who works for money,” said Daniel LaRusso. These kids from Cobra Kai have creative skills and unexplored passion, which would provide them with some amazing career opportunities. Fans on Reddit have created their theories for these individuals as to what they would do in the future.

This theory of this user seems very well observed. At the beginning of the series, we saw Hawk, aka Eli, had created a model for his school presentation. Because Demetri has always been a nerd, he might use his extensive knowledge and get a high-paid job. Tory has her own family issues which might restrict her to go to college. She might become a sensei as she’s won the trophy as we saw at the end of season 4.

While Sam has always been a sensitive and psychologically abused person, she might become a psychiatrist. And these two arch enemies, Miguel and Robby, have always been a little different from the rest of the characters. The prediction is that Robby might join Tory and become a sensei as he trained Kenny. And Miguel might become a business person like Daniel. However, others have a few different opinions than this.

More predictions by the fans

Everyone has their own understanding, and they have slightly different opinions than the previous ones. Some might agree with the theory. Let us have a look at what others have to say.

Whatever the predictions are, we will have to wait for season 5 to stream and witness the unpredicted events. While we’re waiting for the 9th of September, share your predictions about these kids with us.
