While it’s not entirely clear what direction the Marvel Cinematic Universe is headed after the conclusion of the Infinity Saga, Tony Stark was supposed to be the villain avenger 5. That might sound a little strange considering he’s a beloved superhero and has saved 3.5 billion lives, but some have argued that he’s not that heroic and that some of his actions should land him in prison.

But Tony isn’t the only movie hero who should have been thrown into the clink. Redditors have debated which characters deserved jail time for their actions, despite their arguments. Between Sarah Connor, Doc Brown and the Ghostbusters, even the smartest heroes deserve punishment.


Sarah Connor

Landlubber 77 notes that there’s no way Sarah Connor would have ended up getting arrested Terminator 2: Judgment Day. The heroine caused so much destruction in the film, even causing a huge gunfight, and while it was all for the greater good and meant to stop the apocalypse, no authoritative character would ever know.

The 1991 sequel has an optimistic ending, but the Redditor explains the depressing events that would unfold if the film went on for another 10 minutes. The user explains: “Sarah Connor is immediately thrown back into a mental institution, this time with maximum security, and John is back in the care system.” Sadly, realistically, that’s exactly what would have happened, and John would likely have been blamed for the deaths of his foster parents as well.

Fletcher Reede

The one run by Jim Carrey liar liar is one of his best comedies of the 1990s as the wacky comedy has a brilliant premise in which attorney Fletcher Reede is cast with a spell to stop him from lying. As a lawyer, lying happens to be his profession, which leads to some egregious moments. The 1997 film was Carrey’s most physically demanding role, but that could be due to the huge action sequence at the end of the film.

At the end of the film, Fletcher runs past airport security onto the runway and then steals a stair car to catch up with a plane. Pinpoint321 points out, “Jim Carey in liar liar will definitely go to jail for a massive airport security breach.” In fairness, airport security in 1997 wasn’t what it is now, and it was much more lenient. But Fletcher would at least have been fined.

Nathan Drake

The newly released Unexplored was stuck in development hell, and when it finally arrived it was a very different product than fans expected. Unexplored sees a much younger Nathan Drake than the video games the film is based on, but he’s no less ruthless. The film follows him as he hunts for treasure and deals with human lives, whether it’s getting them off planes or involved in mass shootings.

Jelatinman puts it best by stating that the character “goes from being a good old kid committing petty crimes to outright killing people for money” and that the character belongs in prison. However, the video game version of Drake is much worse and he kills hundreds of mercenaries and henchmen per video game.

Wanda Maximoff

JohnnyJayce thinks Wanda Maximoff should be locked up and the key thrown away. The Redditor argues, “Twice now she’s been ‘the victim,’ even though she’s just a villain.” The Redditor references both Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and WandaVision.

Though she’s certainly not the heroine Doctor Strange 2she is an antihero in WandaVision, and she should have been convicted for brainwashing an entire town and essentially using them as slaves. Instead, there was no impact. Even then, years before, she had committed a manslaughter in Siberia Captain America: Civil War.

John Hammond

Martin_Powel thinks mad scientist John Hammond should go to prison for manslaughter. The Redditor argues, “He recreated prehistoric creatures that ate four employees and a lawyer and probably traumatized two children for life. I think that’s enough for jail.” It’s not clear which authorities would arrest him, as the Jurassic Park The island is closest to Costa Rica, but probably not within the country’s borders. However, Hammond has a lot of blood on his hands.

James Cameron almost directed it Jurassic Parkwhen he was racing Steven Spielberg for the rights to the Michael Crichton novel, and if Cameron had directed the 1993 film it would have been a whole different beast. That terminator The director remarked that his version of the film “Foreigner with dinosaurs,” meaning there would be many more deaths, and if that were the case, Hammond would have been locked up for a dozen lives.

Doctor Brown

Back to the Future - Doc Brown

Traveling back in time isn’t a crime, and neither is the invention of the time machine, but the chemical element Doc Brown uses to power the time-travelling DeLorean is. Smokedspirit argues that the Back to the Future Mad scientists should be in jail “for talking to terrorists in the first place to get the plutonium and then conducting scientific experiments on that plutonium.”

The element is extremely radioactive and is used to build nuclear weapons. And the fact that Doc was with people who sold it is not only false, but raises suspicions about what else the doctor is involved with. He may not be the lovable, weird genius that people think he is.

Tony Stark

Peter Parker and Tony Stark in the Civil War.

Given that Captain America: Civil War centered around the idea of ​​superheroes being ruled, it’s no surprise that the film is filled with heroes committing crimes for the greater good. However, Tony Stark, who actually stands for the governed Avengers, commits what is probably the biggest crime in the film. DrRexMorman explains, “Tony Stark gave a 15-year-old a deadly weapon and then transported that 15-year-old across international borders as part of a mission to kill another of his employees.”

The Redditor refers to the billionaire philanthropist who hires teenage Peter Parker to do his Spider-Man thing and battle a handful of seasoned superheroes. The thought of Tony doing this makes no sense and he intentionally put a child in danger and that amounts to jail time.

Benjamin Franklin Gates

Secret message of the National Treasure Declaration

Benjamin Franklin Gates is one of Nicolas Cage’s more relaxed characters. But that’s not saying much since the character steals from and into museums National Treasure: Book of Secrets, he even kidnapped the President of the United States. But according to Ill_Heat_1237, that’s nothing compared to “stealing the Declaration of Independence.”

In the first National Treasure, Cage steals the document because it contains a secret clue to the treasure. And once again, of course, the hero only stole it so the bad guys couldn’t get it first. Anyway, the Redditor thinks Gates deserves jail for this.

Stanley Ipkiss

The mask is technically a superhero movie, and the movie is packed with that classic Jim Carrey comedy, but it’s not remotely suitable for kids. The character shamelessly plays around with machine guns, disrespects the law, and commits some horrible crimes. In this regard, The mask massively influenced Dead Poolbut Ceribus_peribus thinks that one anti-hero deserves jail more than the other.

The Redditor notes that Stanley Ipkiss “robbing a bank straight away and later blaming a gangster.” Stanley may not remember any of the crimes his alter ego commits, but even the countless offenses he commits add up to quite a punishment.

The Ghostbusters

ghostbusters is one of the funniest comedies of the 80s, but also seamlessly combines comedy with adventure and action. The Ghostbusters are doing a great service to New York, but Americanadian25 thinks Peter Venkman and his crew should be locked up.

The Redditor posits, “Unlicensed nuclear technology in the middle of downtown New York wouldn’t fare so well in the real world.” However, the gang were arrested in the film and it wasn’t until the world was attacked by ghosts that they were finally released.
