Behind the scenes, hundreds of people create hundreds of movies that we tend to see in more or less than two hours. On First Viewing, fans might not pick up all the hidden movie details, but that’s not to say they’re not there. Sometimes it’s the little details that give us a new perspective on things. A small detail can build a character, give you more insight into their personality or backstory, wink at the viewers with an Easter egg they may not have noticed before, and even provide another meaning to what we all thought was just one story!
The internet is full of these amazing surprises for anyone who takes time out to look closely enough – but why stop there? We decided to bring some of our favorite facts back home so everyone could enjoy them in person too.
1- Joker 2019
The Joker’s clocks are all set at 11:11. One of the theories from fans says that because everything is happening in Arthur’s head, time doesn’t move in the real world!
2- Spider-Man: Homecoming 2017
Everyone was excited to see Zendaya’s new role in the newest Spider-Man: Homecoming film, starring Tom Holland as Peter Parker. It’s pretty great that she got a chance at playing Michelle (which could possibly be the next MJ), but there was one little detail which most viewers missed out on. Michelle was reading a book called “Of Human Bondage“, which is actually a story about an orphaned boy who lived with his aunt and uncle, sounds familiar. right?
3- Ant-Man 2015
The first person to ever portray Ant Man in a 1979 Saturday Night Live skit called Superhero Party was actually actor and comedian Garrett Morris who made his brief but memorable appearance in Marvel’s 2015 film release of “Ant-Man” starring Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Antman.
4- Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015
Even the most loyal fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe failed to spot this little detail in the movie. In Thor: The Dark World, the beloved villain, Loki dies- or rather fakes his death. Thor, thinking he was dead, took a strand of Loki’s hair and braided it in his own hair and we were able to spot that in one of Avengers: Age of Ultron scenes!
5- Hercules 1997
In the famous movie, Hades says “Guys, relax, It’s only half time.” Exactly at the 46- minute mark, the halfway point o the 92-minute movie
6- Guardians of The Galaxy 2014
This detail isn’t only cool, but it also points out a big issue in all space- related movies! In a scene of the Guardians of The Galaxy movie, we can see Peter Quill’s enhancements are listed on a screen. If you take a closer look, you can see that “Translator Implant” is one of these enhancements. This little detail hints on how all Marvel Characters seem to be speaking English in space- an issue that’s not explained in almost all space movies!
7- Deadpool 2016
We’ve all have loved Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool. The movie shows a scene where Deadpool is getting his surgery done and mocks his own character saying “Don’t make my suit green.” referring to his green suite in Green Lantern!
8- The Conjuring 2 2016
In one of the most spine-chilling movies of our time, a secret detail keeps resurfacing. Several times you can notice that the name of the demon the protagonists have been looking for throughout the whole movie, was already there in several scenes!
9- John Wick: Chapter 2 2017
Though they were released three years apart, the first two John Wick movies take place over the course of four days. To reinforce this point, there is a small detail in Chapter 2 that many people missed. The cars parked outside the Continental Hotel in both movies are the same, giving a visual indication of how little time has passed between the two movies.
10- Home Alone 1990
Kevin’s family left him behind to go on a trip and he was all alone. Weird, right? how can they forget their own child, especially when he has a ticket, but the movie has an answer for this question. Kevin is seen tussling with Buzz in the kitchen when someone picks up his ticket by mistake and tosses it into garbage while cleaning spilled milk.
Every movie has a story to tell and we’ve just skimmed the surface.
