WMG / The Devil's Advocate

Go To

John Milton is really God.

All of the cases are planned and engineered by John Milton himself.
That Mexican he spoke with in the tube will likely kill his wife and his friend. Then, one of Milton's lawyers will protect him in the court. It's not a big stretch of imagination that all Kevin's cases were inspired by Devil's guidance, too.

He really is the Devil.

Some of Milton's other children have appeared in other films
Namely, Top Dollar and his sister, Myca. It would explain the incest.
