Film mistakes are always a topic among fans, mostly they are seen by resourceful viewers, as is now the case with Netflix. The only question that remains is whether the logic error was intentional.
References and hidden clues in films and series, so-called Easter eggs, have always been an established tradition in such productions. Now a fan of “Ragnarök” on Netflix has noticed a detail that might not even be intended, but that could reveal a lot about the plot.
The reason for this is an Apple brand laptop that can be clearly seen in a scene. What seems quite ordinary at first, becomes hot information when you know the guidelines of the electronics manufacturer when one of his products is shown in a film production.
Netflix: a fatal mistake or intent?
It was Rian Johnson, the director of “Knives Out”, who spoke publicly about Apple’s strict guidelines for the use of their device in films and series. He told Vanity Fair, “Apple, they let you use iPhones in movies – but, and this is very important if they ever see a mystery movie, bad guys can’t have iPhones on camera.” The electronics manufacturer therefore bans devices of its brand for villains.
In the mentioned scene in “Ragnarök” you can see Saxa (Theresa Frostad Eggesbø), the character is one of the giants in the series and is therefore an antagonist to roles like Magne (David Stakston), who embodies a young Thor. In short: Saxa is one of the bad guys, but she has an Apple notebook. Now the question arises whether the guidelines of the group were not adhered to here or whether Netflix accidentally betrayed a twist on “Ragnarök”. Because if everything should conform to the rules, that must mean that Saxa will change sides and fight not on the side of the giants, but of the gods in the great Götterdämmerung. It is not known whether Netflix intentionally hidden the logic error or whether the streaming service made a mistake.
