Re: Matrix: Resurrections [2021]

I think the Doogie Howser therapist is Agent Smith, based on the character of some of his inflections. Ow, that idea makes a painfully unpleasant noise in my head. Neil Patrick Harris can be delightfully evil, but if Agent Smith heard himself speaking with Neil's voice, he'd vow silence until he co...

Leopardon, Spider-Man's mech from the Japanese Spider-Man tokusatsu series. Part Ultraman, part Jet Jaguar - all ridiculous. I love it.

I am infinitely hyped.

In fact. Dumb theory time. I think the Doogie Howser therapist is Agent Smith, based on the character of some of his inflections.

It's a stupid theory. It's 99.999% likely to be false. But I'm excited enough to do fan theories and that hasn't happened in a LONG time.
