I May Have Discovered a Shocking ‘Harry Potter’ Revelation

(This is a repost.)

Every once in the blue moon I get the urge to watch the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2 so I can receive new revelations from the films that I might have missed before (because these movies are so complex it takes multiple viewings to truly understand what’s going on.) So, I watched Part 1 of the Deathly Hallows and I immensely enjoyed it. Especially the Gellert Grindelwald references.

With Fantastic Beasts and the Crimes of Grindelwald just under two weeks away it’s always exciting getting a bit of insight from the Harry Potter series for this highly-anticipated prequel-sequel.

But it was the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 that blew my mind with its revelations that put the entire saga in a whole new light. It’s always shocking to find out that Snape was truly Harry’s guardian angel while Dumbledore was simply raising and coddling Harry to one day be killed (how dare you Dumbledore!) but I noticed something even more shocking. Something that is so shocking that I’m still reeling from the discovery. Of course, I may be entirely incorrect with this theory, as I’ve done some research and it can be a bit disproving, but I think, deep down, that I may be correct. You’re probably wondering what I discovered that’s so shocking. Well, I’ll tell you, but you might want to take a deep breath first.

Okay…are you ready? This is what I discovered after my most recent viewing of the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

I think Professor Snape is Harry’s biological father.

Okay, before you completely dismiss the idea just hear me out because this theory I’m about to present provides a very interesting argument. So, let me share with you why I think Snape is Harry’s real dad.

(This is the opinion of someone who has not read the last two books of the Harry Potter series and whose theory is solely based off of the movies.)

The Reasons Why ‘Iron Man 3’ Is and Isn’t a Pointless Installment in the MCU

(This is a repost.)

Iron Man 3. Like Thor: The Dark World, it’s a forgotten and seemingly pointless installment in the MCU. Its villain, The Mandarin, is one of the more unforgettable antagonists in the franchise. And Tony’s storyline moving forward barely feels affected by the plot points that are presented in the film.

I don’t watch Iron Man 3 often but after seeing Endgame I wanted to go back and look at the Marvel films I’m less familiar with, one of those films, of course, being Iron Man 3.

Iron Man 3 isn’t exactly a terrible movie but compared to the other two Iron Man films it almost feels like a travesty. With a villain that’s almost more comical than intimidating in The Mandarin and a storyline that’s trying too hard to be grave plus evolve Tony’s character despite the fact that he’s pretty much the same person by the end of the film that he was at the beginning, Iron Man 3 isn’t anywhere near the enjoyable status of my favorite Marvel movies.

And yet, it’s not entirely a pointless film. In fact, it’s almost kind of fascinating to look back at for a couple of really intriguing storylines, one of course being Pepper’s ascension to being a superhero.

Episode X: The Reckoning: Chapter Forty-Eight

Fate worked in mysterious ways. Some called it the Force. Some called it destiny. But it was undoubtedly a mystical power that bound everything together.

Maz Kanata had never felt more wowed by the extent of this power than now.

Launching out of hyperspace, Carcuun lied before the Tantive IV. Once a serene world of roiling oceans and stony islands covered in towering skyscrapers, it was now a world blanketed by darkness with craggy mountains risen from the deep, turning the oceans into violent lakes riven with thrashing anger.

And there, on the cusp of the planet’s hemisphere, were two other ships; the one they had followed that Kanata believed Ora was piloting and another ship that Maz had never seen before. That is, until, the commlink beeped and she heard Poe Dameron’s voice over the line. Continue reading Episode X: The Reckoning: Chapter Forty-Eight
