Reservoir Dogs & Marvel: A Conspiracy Theory

March 5, 2014 at 11:33 am (Rant) (, , , , )


So I watched Reservoir Dogs last night for the first time. Among many other things, I couldn’t help but notice the connection with Marvel in that movie. An argument could even be made that this film has impacted more than one Marvel film.

The first film is a somewhat obvious one: Fantastic Four. In RD, Mr. Orange describes Joe as being like “The Thing” from the Fantastic Four. Now, let’s fast forward to the unfortunate FF movie from 2005. Do you see any similarities between The Thing and Joe? Thought so.

My next film is still a theory at this point, but the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy certainly has the same cover of “Hooked on a Feelin'” in it as the scene in RD where Eddie is driving Pink, White, and Orange. There is also some speculation that James Gunn could be a fan of Quentin Tarantino, but we’ll see how that plays out when the movie is released.
