Let's face it, Disney is not going to PM the person with the best idea and fly them to Hollywood. This is for fun.
Aw, man. Well, ...there goes my reason for living.
Yes, I think this thread is a good idea. I'm guessing that the random dialogue and formation of creative ideas, even if at first they're a bit nebulous or far-fetched, is probably how all the good and innovative sci-fi/fantasy films are written. It seems altogether not unlike the writing of a good jazz song....i.e., tossing all sorts of ideas/scenarios out there, playing outside the structure, then hearing it, listening to it, getting a feel for what's too far outside the structure and what works, then working/re-working from there.
......And yes, I agree, this is and should be for FUN! I also think it's not unfeasible to think that our ideas/input could eventually evolve into something that Disney might want to use. Even if none of us ever gets contacted for input, or even gets to know for sure if it was our idea(s) incorporated into the screenplay,... in my opinion it's not about that. It's about the fun of the process, and as fans it's about the honor of knowing we had some small voice in it.
Some random input,....
I like a couple of the ideas AriesT brought up...
People want to see Flynn resurrect to be with his son again. Without him, we do not have a strong character (beside Birdges acting is just brilliant). So show them how Sam hunts for the puzzle pieces (fragments) on the GRID, which are needed to bring Flynn back to life.
People want to see TRON in a more leading role. So pull him out of the Sea of Simulation in the first quarter of the film and let him help finding Flynn and destroying Dillinger on the GRID in the second half. Maybe even with the help of RAM, who is teasered in "The Next Day" to have his comeback.
As to what Kat said, re: Dillinger Jr. turning out to be a good guy...
|Cillian Murphy fans want to see him in a good light. In my little storyline, I include Ed Jr., with Quorra and Sam, entering the grid. Cillian makes a great bad guy. He is smart, handsome, and has an honest look about him. He is also smart enough to play a reluctant good guy. |
Yeppers, I agree.
To add to that my own input,...
...' kinda like building on the idea that Dillinger Senior is the baddie behind the curtain. Not as the bad guy in the flesh or corporeal anymore, but instead a bad guy who exists only in the realms of artificial intelligence only, has uploaded himself to merge with and actually become the MCP...and is bent on carrying out not only his longstanding revenge-grudge against Flynn but also on achieving what the MCP failed to do in the first film - real world domination as well as the Grid.
That's an idea I started toying with in a fanfic.
Right after I saw "The Next Day" teaser where Junior is dialoguing via text with his dad, for some reason I started thinking about two old X-Files episodes, "Ghost In The Machine"
, and "Killswitch"
. Then I thought about Kevin Flynn's quote - "Evolution is the greatest force in the material world. Evolution will provide us the next step in intelligent life but it will come from somewhere unexpected"
.....so that in mind, I though what if we started with A.I. consciousness/soul uploading, which would be basically artificial immortality, then tossed in a few elements of "The Matrix", "Inception", and found ways to have all of those themes give birth to a fresh step into the unexpected by having all of it transcend the Grid and start affecting Encom and the real world instead.
In the first film we already saw how Dillinger Sr.'s character flaws and lust for power predisposed him to getting taken over by his own creation - the MCP. In the decades afterward, as he ages and approaches his own mortality, I can almost see him trying finding a way to not only supercede it and to cheat death, but to also seek to control the Master Control Program, to "perfect" it in an attempt to avoid a repeat of what led to his own downfall in the first film.
I can see Junior being used as a pawn in that process, or possibly trying to seek his father's approval, until he is finally able to stand up and fight the MCP. Exploring that father/son dynamic, the 'Junior has a dark-side to his psyche' dynamic, and the moral/redemption dynamic would offer Cillian Murphy the chance to play the full emotional range he's capable of and to end up being the good guy as well.
Lastly, along with the Junior dynamic, I can see a re-compiled Flynn and Clu, and a re-purposed Rinzler i.e. now Tron again, along with Sam and Quorra, all having to somehow fight the ever-expanded real world danger of the MCP, as well as to have to struggle with their own dark sides in the process. And of course Roy and Alan are going through it with them as well, perhaps as stabilizing forces in the real world.
Okay, so, for what it's worth, there's my two cents. Tossing that into the creative mix.
