When it comes to superhero flicks, fans tend to go into the films with high expectations -- especially when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While some fan theories may ultimately prove to be true, there are plenty that are merely that -- theories -- that don't ultimately pan it. Then there are the plot holes that fans go on to spend time evaluating, trying to comprehend how these changes will impact the MCU going forward.
