10 Plots Points That Ended Up Nowhere Within the Movie

The art of crafting a well-directed movie seems to be a very daunting task for many writers out there. Several times, any kind of movie with several characters may involve a certain number of plots. This may riddle the storyline with exciting twists, but a lot of times inclusion of several plots tends to overcomplicate the movie. And there have been several instances where certain plots about the characters of the movie have been included in the movie. That on many occasions have not been given a befitting closure in the narrative, which is often left hanging in the movie with or is just skipped for no apparent reason. So here is a list of plots in a movie that did not make sense at least during the release of the film.

Quicksilver – X-Men: Apocalypse

In the movie we witness Quicksilver (Evan Peters) claim to be Magneto’s son. Magneto joins the ranks with Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) towards world domination. Especially with the recent demise of Magneto’s family, for which he blamed the human race. The viewers were assuming that Quicksilver would be implicated to help his father see the good side of life. But, nothing of that happened within the movie. What’s worse is that only one reference of the entire plot was mentioned in the movie and since then the topic of the relationship never came up in the movie or the last sequel X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Tommy Jarvis – Friday the 13th: A New Beginning

The 4th sequel of Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, witnessed the introduction of a young character named Tommy Jarvis (Corey Feldman). Tommy at the end of the 4th sequel ends with Tommy hacking Jason to pieces with a machete. The 5th sequel of Friday the 13th witnessed an adolescent Tommy (John Shepherd), being left traumatized by his encounter with Jason. Leaving him hospitalized for and diagnosed with Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). When ‘Jason’ returns, Tommy becomes the prime suspect for all the killings. But, is eventually not found guilty, after they catch someone else posing to be ‘Jason’. However, towards the end of the sequel, the viewers witnessed an exciting turn of events with Tommy donning Jason’s mask and attacking Pam. The 6th sequel started afresh with Tommy accidentally resurrecting Jason and also defeating him in the same movie. The plot from the 5th never fructified further because of the negative response from the viewers and in the 7th sequel, Tommy was forgotten from the entire franchise.

Lisa’s Mother – The Room

In the movie, When Lisa (Juliette Danielle) is talking to her mother Claudette (Carolyn Minnott) about her plans for a birthday party for her fiancée, Johnny, Claudette makes a saddening revelation by saying, “I got the results of the test back. I have breast cancer”. Assuming the worst and that the new revelation would bring another twist in the story, surprisingly nothing happened about the fact that Claudette had breast cancer. The plausibility of the fact of the entire narrative was so weird, that it never resurfaced during the rest of the movie.

Dr. Stern – The Incredible Hulk

MCU over time has proven its track record for fulfilling the completion of its established plots, within a movie. But the same cannot be said for 2008’s ‘The Incredible Hulk’, which during the last scenes witnessed something new. The movie unknowingly setups a new villain in the movie’s narrative when Dr. Samuel Sterns (Tim Blake Nelson) is attacked by the abomination (Tim Roth). One of Bruce Banner’s (Edward Norton) blood sample vials, break on Dr. Stern’s head and causing a cut through which, the gamma infected blood seems to cause a chain reaction in the doctor. But the sequel never appears as Hulk becomes one of the lowest-grossing movies of that time. And by the time Mark Ruffalo reprised the role of the Hulk, the plot was almost forgotten by the ones who watched the movie.

Dr. Sartain – Halloween (2018)

In the movie, we witness Dr. Ranbir Sartain (Haluk Bilginer), who seems to have a sinister fascination with Michael Myers. Sartain not only caused the bus carrying Michael to crash but also killed an officer to allow Myer’s escape. But as soon as he kills the officer, Sartain ends with his face being smushed under Myers’s boots. One would assume the mad doctor takes on a more villainous avatar, but for some reason, his story is scrubbed from the film and continues without him.

Zoe Bell – Django Unchained

In the movie, we witness Django (Jamie Foxx) gun down a room full of trackers, all by himself leaving one who was a woman wearing a bandana on her face covering her nose and mouth. It seems like the movie is headed somewhere with this character, only for her to shot on the head. Kind of an abrupt ending and wasting production on a character that was never meant to be introduced in the first place.

Uncle Ben’s killer – The Amazing Spider-Man

The inclusion of Peter Parker’s uncle in The Amazing Spider-Man seemed a bit uncalled for, especially when 10 years back the viewers already saw what happened in San Raimi’s version. But, in this version, Peter just seemed to somehow move on and forget his uncle’s killer. It looked like he developed some greater sense of purpose in his life and decide to forget his uncle’s killer.

The Love Triangle – Pacific Rim: Uprising

The Pacific Rim: Uprising witnesses the arrival of Rinko Kikuchi’s stepbrother in the kaiju narrative. The movie shows a love triangle between the only two adult pilots and a jaeger engineer. The movie also witnesses the lady kiss each pilot on their cheeks, wishing for their safe return leaving each pilot confused. But this love triangle never resurfaces in the entire movie.

Finn’s Secret – Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker

Throughout the entire movie, the viewers just kept waiting for Finn (John Boyega) to tell Rey an important secret. The movie went on for quite some time, but the revelation never happened. Kind of a bummer to include such a plot when it wasn’t going to be concluded.

Diana Walks Away – Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

In the movie Dawn of Justice, Diana (Gal Gadot) explains to Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), that she in her past had decided to walk away from humanity, where man-made situations made it standing together impossible. Now, some fans assumed that it was something to do with Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), but that was not the case. Also, in the DC movie, called Wonder Woman 1984, the original plot of the character was completely changed. And the audience never got to witness the real reason as to why Diana chose to walk away from humanity. Kind of a weird way to leave the audience hanging for answers, as the upcoming Justice League Snyder Cut, also does not promise many answers into this particular plot.
