I am proud to announce that TVEnthusiast’s latest feature series will be a weekly comic strip named Connect Them All. In Connect Them All, every film and TV property in existence take place within the same shared universe. Whether linked by an actor, a setting, an item, or any other possible connecting tissue, Connect Them All will explore the connections between various shows and movies.
To kick things of, Connect Them All will link Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit to Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal through actor Richard Armitage. In The Hobbit, Armitage portrayed the leader of his band of Dwarves, and the rightful King under the Mountain, Thorin Oakenshield. Thorin becomes obsessed with retaking his home, the Lonely Mountain, from the Dragon Smaug, who was attracted to the many treasures found within. In the current season of Hannibal, Armitage portrays serial family killer Francis Dolarhyde, aka The Tooth Fairy, aka The Great Red Dragon. Dolarhyde, after beholding the William Blake painting The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed in Sun, begins to believe that he himself is becoming the dragon, and that the dragon is pushing him to murder families.
