In this current Hollywood climate, there’s no debating the fact that everyone’s looking that project that’s going to kick off a billion-dollar franchise. Given that, it’s no surprise that instead of focusing on making one film at a time, sometimes a film can be chock full of hints towards where a future franchise would go, if you just stick around long enough. This leads to every movie having easter eggs and callback and post-credit sequences, and mid credit-sequences and and so on.
This isn’t a new trend though. It turns out that all along, some classic and beloved films have been seeding themselves with their future plans, giving subtle hints on what’s coming up next. Sometimes, the pay off is in the next installment. Other times, you have to wait a few years, but when it does show up, it’s this feeling of “whoa…they knew this was going to happen all along.
Sometimes, you just need to watch it a few times to pick up on all the clues.
