"I have a pretty elaborate mythology and history of what's going on in this film," he said to The Hollywood Reporter. "And of course, the dilemma that comes up is how much of that do you tell?"

"When there are questions left, and you know there is more to the story, your imagination is left to run wild," he added, speaking on the twist ending of the film. It revealed the Tethered to be, not supernatural doppelgängers as first assumed, but failed experiments from a government cloning project that wanted to generate subjugated humans as a means of crowd control.

When asked about going further into this mythology the way Get Out did when it revealed more about the supernatural "Sunken Place," Peele responded, "Anything is possible," stoking flames that fans could get more insight about the government's cloning history and why these clones chose now for their uprising.

In theaters now, Us is written, directed and produced by Jordan Peele. The film stars Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Anna Diop, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Kara Hayward, Tim Heidecker and Shahadi Wright Joseph.
