Terminator: Dark Fate -- Shouldn't Everyone Know What The T-800 Looks Like?
Even after terminating every post-T2 sequel, Terminator: Dark Fate somehow found a way to make a confusing franchise even more confusing. Skynet is now "Legion," the timeline is totally different, and John Connor gets shot in the face like five minutes after the last movie ended. Most baffling is "Carl," the T-800 who bumped off John and decades later now runs ... a drapery business? Oh, and he has a wife, because Terminators have working robo-dicks now.
Paramount PicturesOh, and a dog, despite dogs hating terminators having been extremely fucking established.
What They Forgot About:
There's only one problem with all this. OK, there are many, many problems, but specifically, it ignores a key plot thread from T2. After the T-800 saves John from the T-1000 in a shopping mall shootout, the police understandably take notice. They also make the connection that this hulking sunglasses-clad Austrian is the same dude who laid waste to a police station back in 1984. We even see the cops questioning Sarah Connor about him.
TriStar PicturesIt feels like this should've come up when he bought a small army's worth of guns.
That's two public shootings this guy is responsible for, and they both happened on camera. In Dark Fate, Sarah casually mentions that there's an episode of America's Most Wanted about her, so in all likelihood, there's probably an entire Netflix docuseries about the Terminator's murder sprees. But despite the fact that he's a wanted criminal, the extremely conspicuous Carl was somehow able to lead a quiet family life in rural Texas, where no one noticed that their drapes guy is a futuristic killing machine.
Spider-Man: Far From Home Negates Multiple Tony Stark Character Arcs
Spider-Man: Far From Home finds Peter Parker mourning the death of Tony Stark, his mentor, friend, and guy who kept relentlessly hitting on his aunt. While a spare few million might come in handy for Peter's cash-strapped family, instead Tony bequeaths him a pair of glasses that control "E.D.I.T.H." an insanely elaborate global drone system. Which kind of seems like a terrible thing to give to a high-schooler, supported by the fact that Peter nearly blows up an entire bus full of kids with his new gizmo.

Walt Disney StudiosThis seems like something that should've come up in Endgame instead of addressing the universe-conquering god with a punch-based strategy.
