All Movies Fall Together Within a Single Universe
Debate Rounds (4)
When it is stated that all movies fall together in a single universe, this is a hypothesis that I am currently in process of developing. Even in movies in which inter-universal/inter-dimensional travel occurs, I am certain that it all comes back to one single universe. The reasoning behind starting this debate is that I am entirely intrigued to see if my opponent may present a way in which this does not work.
Starting in the next round, I shall begin to outline how exactly some movies begin to fit together. The first round, to my opponent, shall be for acceptance.
Please do keep in mind, this is very experimental and it shall be a learning experience for all of us.
"I mean no offence, but the point being made is frankly foolish. For instance, look at the films Lincoln and and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. They share a protagonist but one happens in our own universe while the other occurs in a fantasy universe which contains non-existant creatures."
Yes, admittedly, it was foolish of me not to clarify that further. A couple wonderful questions were brought up in the comments and I'd like to address those quickly and efficiently so as to minimize confusions.
1.) Which universe does this take place in? This takes place in a universe that is alternate from our own. However, it does still maintain parallels to our own, thus allowing for movies set in the "modern day."
2.) Does this encompass all movies? Yes. It does, indeed, encompass all movies and, for the sake of argument, television shows (non-cartoons) as well.
3.) Are you about to sound like an utter loon? Potentially but oh well. I'm all in at this point.
BEFORE I BEGIN:
It does become imperative to my case that you first watch this video (Video #1):
This entire area of subjectivity is greatly summed up by a man named Jon Negroni who developed the "Pixar Theory." It is also highly recommended that you read up on his theory. A link will be provided in the references/sources section at the end of my argument. 
Now, with this in mind, I can immediately tell that doubt is beginning to form in one's mind, if it wasn't there already or, perhaps, doubt is beginning to fade away. Nevertheless, we shall move on.
So, the question is now begged:
"Well, Code, that's all fine and dandy but how is it that every movie fits into this big idea?"
The answer is much simpler than one would think. If we think back to the example of Cars in which there are sentient objects and every object has the ability to feel. Something that is completely unnoticed by the human species is an example hiding in an old television series from 1982. That's right, Knight Rider. Knight Rider is the first sentient car and through its sentience, it acts in such a way that it helps David Hasslehoff defeat his enemies while delivering fun times all the way through. Knight Rider was originally claimed as a car with artificial intelligence (AI) but what if, in fact, it was the first time in which humans in this universe had successfully engineered a fully sentient car?
Moving right along with David Hasslehoff, we can find him in Baywatch. Now, this isn't particularly exciting in and of itself but remember how he played a lifeguard? Wonderful. Move along to the Spongebob Squarepants Movie now. (Yes, that's right, this can even encompass this realm.) David Hasslehoff, in the Spongebob Squarepants Movie played a lifeguard and wore the same red shorts that can so commonly be seen being worn by him in Baywatch. Spongebob Squarepants occurred in the very same universe, on the very same planet even, as that of Finding Nemo. The only difference is that Finding Nemo took place over near Australia while Spongebob Squarepants would be noted somewhere off the western coast of North America.
So that brings us back around to the idea of Disney movies. I certainly hope that both my opponent and the voters have stuck with me thus far. In the next round, I will be delving into how movies such as Marvel's The Avengers can take place in the same universe as The Hobbit and how things such as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter can co-exist in a universe with Lincoln and even Harry Potter. However, at this exact point in time, I do wish to leave the voters and my opponent with this mere introduction to the idea.
I sincerely look forward to my opponent's response and to see what he may have to offer towards this idea thus far.
The thought that David Hasselhoff's character can connect Knight Rider and Baywatch may seem air tight, but we can't confuse actors with characters because we often see the same characters being played by different actors in the same series. The following film franchises have had a major character change between installments.
James Bond- Bond franchise- Played by Barry Nelson, Bob Holness, Bob Simmons, Sean Connery, Roger Moore, George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton, Michael Jayston, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig.
Jack Ryan- Jack Ryan Franchise- Played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Afflek, and Chris Pine
Rachel Dawes- Christopher Nolan's Batman Franchise- Played by Katie Holmes and Maggie Gyllenhaal
James Rhodes- Iron Man Franchise- Played by Terrence Howard and Don Cheadle
Professor Dumbledore- Harry Potter Franchise- Played by Richard Harris and Michael Gambon
I would also like to refrence the new Star Trek franchise which occurs in a universe paralell to that of the original Star Trek's and as it is specified that they don't exist in the same universe the topic of debate is rendered invalid.
