MiB suits are self-cleaning.
Agent J and Will Smith's character from Independence Day are the same characterIn MIB 2, J mentions he'd defeated an alien invasion while K's memory was gone; obviously it was the one in Independence Day. When the aliens invaded, the MIB slipped several of its agents into the military as covert operatives. Agent J swapped out Jeff Goldblum's Macbook with an advanced MIB computer capable of hacking the aliens, and also switched the human atomic bomb with a more powerful explosive. Once the rubble had been rebuilt, the MIB used a massive neuralizer burst to make everyone forget..
Agent J is a company morale experiment.Conformity was actually starting to cause psychological stress among the rank and file. While everyone being individuals wasn't an option; having one person break up the monotony was an acceptable compromise. K insisted that he be effective regardless. He's basically the MIB's version of a novelty necktie.
The disc that "will replace the CD soon" was in fact the UMD.The Men In Black aren't perfect.
The disc that "will replace the CD soon" was in fact the data storage device for a bond algorithm that allows banks to effectively use invested money and bring their clients a higher rate of return, and will have been introduced at the next depression-climb.Wrong sort of CD, sport.
Hannah Montana and family are aliensHannah's mundane alter-ego Miley Stewart is, in fact, a ruse to draw speculation away from that fact. In order to maintain the charade, MiB had to track down and neuralize anyone and everyone who had seen her blow her cover in Tennessee.
The MIB is either part of or works alongside the SCP FoundationSecretive, hyper-powerful organizations whose primary purpose is to police the planet of the strange, the unusual, and the dangerous and to keep the peace by suppressing knowledge of their existence? Too coincidental.
Michael Jackson never died.He managed to convince Zed and got his job as Agent M.
The Liberty Islandneuralizer in the second film had secondary effects built in. Primarily, erasing undeveloped film and not having to look directly at the birdie (possibly not even having to be in the light itself, but only within a certain range which is lessened but not blocked by cement). It is likely that, aside from being lower-powered, the personal neuralizers are intentionally nerfed versions of this original-design neuralizer. Unfortunately, this means that any MIB agents within range who had their glasses off (anti-neuralizing field generators in the earpieces) lost their memories of that time as well, and that the MIB will have to find a new way to deal with flash memory storage for digital photographs now that it's become much more common.
The MIB are the American branch of the Torchwood Institute.Both organisations reverse engineer alien technology, defend the earth from alien invasions, have the ability to perform Laser-Guided Amnesia, and function under the philosophy of "if it's alien, it's ours."
Anne Heche is being monitored by the MIB.And she's used in training videos: "What Happens When an Alien Encounters Earth Drugs and Accidentally Reveals Their True Identity".
The next film will feature AlphaHe'll be a full-on canon immigrant. And it will make up for the second movie.
Laurel is a necrophiliac.
Fonzie was an MIB agent at one pointHe was agent Aaay.
The MIB eventually evolved into Section 31.They exist outside of the Federation to protect it's citizens from any outside attacks and strives to protect the Federation's interests at all costs. And like MIB, people hardly know they exist.
Time travelers are to the present universe what space travelers are to planet Earth.Men In Black III will introduce us to The Masquerade within The Masquerade. Most contemporary aliens are unaware of the presence of visitors from the future and many would dismiss the very idea of time travel. Ironically, the man teaching J to "time jump" will turn out to be a regular human.
Mi B suits are actually high tech armorWe see Agent J getting tossed around alot, stuff that would shatter his spine or at least break ribs. J just shrugs it off. My conclusion is that the Mi B suit contains an inertia dampener and probably anti-energy weapon/bullet resistant armor. Still there is quite a lot that can penetrate the suit, so they don't tell the new guy, to prevent delusions of invulnerability.
Agent K is Agent Phil Coulson's father.First off, Marvel owns both franchises. Second off, they're both badass agents who dress in suits, both work for secret government agencies, and neither bat an eyelash at aliens or alien technology. We also know that Agent K was married, but never whether or not he had any kids. Not that much of a stretch, is it?
In the Alternate Timeline, the colonel joined the MIB.He later recruited J in the MIB while K had been dead since 1969.
Agent K and Agent O are married. The character of Agent O and the wife from the first film are Same Character Different Actor.It would seem cruel and inconsistent that K would outright leave his wife to join MIB, yet still love said wife as depicted in the first film. It'd be terribly cruel for K to chase two other women and maybe more. The Agent K and O "how we met" story, described in the 3rd film, is very common even without the alien angle to it. Agents K and O obviously care about each other in 1969 and O clearly remembers his "coffee routine" in 2012. There is no indication in the first film that K's wife was ever neuralyzed. A circumstantial theory is that Agent O caught K having an affair in 1977 that produced a daughter (see second film). They could eventually split personal with professional, K working full-time at the agency and O as a deep-cover agent with a civilian life. When K was neuralyzed after the first film, O saw this as his "retirement". However, after Zed's death, O and K are the most senior agents, so O is named chief as she is the younger of the two and K is probably headed for retirement (again) before O.
The tiny alien thing which moves inside and out of Boris's body is actually his chopped-off handProofs: it gets delivered to Boris by the girl during the prison escape sequence, so it must come from outside the prison; Boris says it's a part of him; we see Boris' arm getting vaporized at the end of the third movie but his hand being chopped off and remaining (almost) intact; and, most important, younger Boris doesn't seem to have it.
Star Wars is based on real eventsThe first movie had an off-hand reference to Corellians. The third film had an Arcanian, which is also a Star Wars Expanded Universe race. Finally, the original movie showed George Lucas to be one of the undercover aliens - he probably wrote Star Wars as a fictitious story, involving actual places and customs he was familiar with.
The big tongued woman in the Chinese restaurant and the big fish being towed away are one and the sameThe long tonged girl was not killed during the battle, but the fish was. However, another giant fish is being towed away at the end.
The Cephalopod Jay chased down was not working for the Bugs, but some other race thriving on destruction.
Butters was mistaken at one point to be a Ballchinian.
Griff is the MIIIB universe's Doctor.He can sense timelimes, is telepathic and is the last of his kind. He even has a strange alien device that kinda looks like a watch!
The reason why people have to jump off a tall building to time travel......is because they have to reach speeds of up to 88 miles per hour to do so.
When K came back in the second movie, it brought back his hidden memories of the 1969 events.He had hidden that from himself (hey, there's precedent). The reason he recruited J was the timeline auto-correcting. Once he remembered, he decided not to bring it up in hopes it would never happen. Maybe the memory was just loose and foggy until the present film happened.
9/11 was another covered-up alien eventBut it was just as horrible and sad in the MIB universe as it was in Real Life. It was the MIB's biggest loss of human life in one shot.
The Neuralizers attract peopleEveryone is always standing in front of the MI Bs in a neat group. There's a function built in that makes people naturally curious and the MI Bs activate it before they neuralize them to get them into an easy-to-flash group.
The Chinese branch of MIB...Doesn't use letter-based names. Instead, they're all named Agents Wang, Li, Zhang, and Chen. In Real Life, those names account for a quarter of China's population, and would serve as unremarkable monikers.
Agent T became The Tick after being retired.
The bug inside the cake is what a Boglodite looks like. Boris isn't a Boglodite, he's made out of them.Much like an insect or lizard with camouflage capabilities, Boglodites have instincts which allow them to "blend in" (or in this case assemble a replica of the species which surrounds them.) Since it's a reflexive, subconscious action, it's extremely hard to completely drop the disguise on command unless injured (see the theory above that the bug was part of Boris's arm) or in extreme danger (Boris transforming into a primal state near the end.) Years of being stuck in human form have conditioned Boris to want revenge for his "arm" rather than his slain teammates.
Neuralizer Uses Are LoggedEvery time a Neuralizer is used, the details of when, where and who used it is sent to MIB's database for records. It would help prevent agents from abusing it, and in the event someone would need to be Deneuralized, you could easily bring up the details. It would also explain why K's Neuralizer has a dial-up modem in 1969.
J died trying to save K in the original timeline.This theory proposes a semi-stable time loop. In this, Boris always went back in time, and J always went back to chase him. The character Griffin shows that there are a near infinite amount of possibilities that can happen. Basically though, something happened in the original timeline, and the adult J died to save K. This is what traumatized K so much, and why he was so quiet about the whole incident. In the new timeline, where K didn't witness his partner's death, and then meet a younger version seconds later. Notice K doesn't seem as grouchy at the end, he actually seems quite content and happy. This also explains why the mission was classified. It makes no sense for it to be classified due to time travel in an unaltered timeline, since the younger Boris wasn't interested in time travel at all. Time travel would've had nothing to do with that mission if the timeline wasn't altered. It's also why K didn't want J chasing after Boris, he'd already seen J die once from it.
The mission to stop Boris was only classified to Agent J.Even if K didn't recognize James as that kid he neuralized forty years ago, (James Edwards being a common name, and adults look nothing like kids, and it was forty years ago) in the process of deleting J's personal records, he saw the birth certificate and figured out that J was the little kid who lost his father and whom he neuralized. K pulled some strings with Zed and O, and made it so J would never find out that K knew exactly what happened to his father and covered it up. K also didn't want J on the mission, since it might come up that Boris killed J's father; such things tend to lead to blind rage and wrecklessness, likely to get J killed. Alternatively, it has been surmised that in the original timeline that J's father wasn't killed but recruited (since we don't know how that timeline occured, it's possible things changed in such a way that J's father would've taken up that offer to join MIB). Even so, the mission was still classified, and only to J. Both because joining MIB is supposed to be like disappearing off the globe, so family members aren't allowed to know about recruitment, even if that family member joins MIB (probably official legal stuff that wasn't changed simply because this doesn't come up often enough). And also because if J knew that MIB was the reason he grew up without a father, he might defect. Any other agent would be able to access the full mission report from their account if they tried, but J didn't think of getting somebody else. In the timeline where K was killed, the mission wasn't classified because K wouldn't be able to report about J's father. O had no idea about J's father and simply assumed the mission was classified due to time travel. Interestingly, since Boris wouldn't have a reason to go down and kill James's father, and K wouldn't be around to recruit him, this means that James was raised by his father, but doesn't remember it due to Ripple-Effect-Proof Memory.
The mission to stop Boris wasn't classified until O saw J looking into it.J only started receiving "Access Denied" messages after O seemed to notice what he was doing. From her point of view, something very strange was going on. One of her agents who, from her point of view, knew nothing about K has suddenly become obsessed with him and started looking at a 40-year old file. Whether the file was originally "above his paygrade" or not, it was certainly suspicious behavior from her point of view. Being a responsible boss, she decided to intervene to find out just what the hell was going on, and used her higher security clearance to lock J out of the file until she found out what was going on.
Someone in the cast is into Vorarephilia.In nearly all three movies, someone gets wolfed down by an alien or the film's antagonist. For example, in the first film, the real Edgar is devoured by the alien giant cockroach and then his skin is used as a costume, a thug is eaten by Serleena in the second movie (though he's later spat out), and in the third, another thing gets eaten. Seems like more than a coincidence, doesn't it?
"They're beautiful, aren't they? the stars?"The phrase "They're beautiful, aren't they? The stars?" is a code phrase MIB agents use when they want to retire from MIB.
