Added DiffLines:



[[WMG: At one point, Mia was the protagonist]]

* This version of Light was added to the final product later. Evidence:
** Mia is the first character established on screen, being introduced even before Light.
** Personality-wise, she has much more in common with the Light of the anime, being ruthless and willing to kill anyone who dares to stand in her way (she even emulates Light's "kill the FBI agents" plot from the manga and anime).
** Her talk about being dissatisfied with her life and wanting to do something more than just be a high school cheerleader sounds a bit like the seeds of a character arc that was eventually scrapped.

Added DiffLines:

** Film/SouthlandTales: Starla had her name written in the Death Note, with a few "else if" conditions like the ones you'd see in most languages of programming. If Justin Timberlake's character was present when Starla attempted to kill herself if the Rock's character refused to have sex with her, he would blow her brains out (like what happens in the film proper); if the Rock didn't show up, or refused, Starla would kill herself as normal; and if the Rock accepted, but Timberlake's character was nowhere near the scene, Starla would put the gun down, but it would go off on accident, blowing her brains out.

Added DiffLines:

* Finn Wolfhard
* Dylan O'Brien as an older Near

[[WMG: Death Note 2 will be based on the Near story of the Death Note anime]]

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: The movie isn't a retelling of the same story - it's a new one altogether that takes place a few decades after the original.]]

Basically, Ryuk is bored again and goes to America this time (which is why the name/race changes happen). He manages to find a kid named Light and decides, "Hey, let's see if my nostalgia makes this weirdo a good choice," and drops the notebook. Wammy's is no longer a thing, being an old, dilapidated building during the film while in the anime/manga it was at least fairly active (Roger actually had to take over from Watari). Due to this, the current film!L was never there. He IS a successor, however, though whether the bad choice in choosing him was Near's or another L's is up for debate. The bad choice is why he's a mentally unstable black ninja. Said ninja knows something to the effect of "Watari takes care of L" so he found/hired someone to fill that role for him, which is why film!Watari is Asian instead of white. The reason film!L is so much less effective? Not even Near was able to fill the first L's shoes - why would anyone else be able to?

It can be argued that if this is all true, then there would be some mention of a similar situation in the past, but...two rebuttals: 1. The situations aren't all that similar to the public, being that film!Light rarely uses heart attacks and his signature is his victims screaming about Kira; 2. Even if they were more similar, the public never new about the Death Note while we do, so it would be nigh impossible to make that connection without that kind of knowledge.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: L had a split personality.]]

Since NO ONE could escape mental trauma from going through what he did to "prepare" him to become L..and it would explain his mood swings ....the other personality took all the way over without Watari to keep it in check.

*** The masked man who [[spoiler: shot Fred]] in the Season 2 finale was just a pawn being manipulated by a notebook user.


*** It turns out ''Mark'' was that user. [[TheDogWasTheMastermind He manipulated events to his own end, hoping to get with Lisa and remove Johnny from his life after becoming jealous of Johnny's success.]] He starts a FaceHeelTurn after the rooftop conversation ("O hai Mark"), but either doesn't know that he can burn the page with Johnny's name or [[IgnoredEpiphany decides not to because he's in too deep.]] After Lisa calls (right before Johnny has his freakout), Mark tries to burn the page with Johnny's name, but he's too late. With Johnny dead, Mark decides that he wants nothing to do with the note and severs all ties with Lisa and her family, becoming a second father-figure for Denny in the process.

[[WMG: L [[spoiler:killed Light in the end with the Death Note page]]]]
It's left ambiguous in the film, but I believe this is the end result due to Ryuk's hysterical laughter. It's implied Ryuk is the one to perform the killings written in the Death Note, or he's at least aware of when names are put down as he's always heard laughing at someone's death(the first two killings for example). [[spoiler:Ryuk sensed that L wrote Light's name on the torn page of the Death Note which is why he was laughing so hard.]]
