Since Glass Onion: A Mystery of the Blades arrived on Netflix last month, fans have continued to pick apart many details of the blockbuster film. The central mystery of Rian Johnson’s movie only got more complicated as the movie progressed, especially with the reveal that Janelle Monae’s Andi is really dead, and we’ve seen her twin sister, Helen, for most of the movie. In a recent interview with VarietyMonae and the head of the film’s hair department, Leslie Bennett, revealed that the twin-related twist is actually predicted in plain sight in advance, by the wig on Helen’s head.
“Helen’s wig is something Rian and I talked about,” Monae revealed. “If she’s acting like Andi, and no one knows it’s her, the parting of her hair is on the other side. The idea is that she’s a mirror image of her sister.”
“Rian wanted Andi and Helen to have two different looks,” Bennett revealed, citing that Andi’s hair was more polished. “She was the business trendsetter type.”
“She’s so put together and she’s so sharp, so we wanted her hair to be as sharp as she is,” Monae admitted.
What’s Glass Onion: A Mystery of the Blades as regards?
In Glass Onion: A Mystery of the Blades, tech billionaire Miles Bron invites his friends (and Detective Benoit Blanc) to a “murder mystery party” on Glass Onion, his Greek private island. However, when someone turns out to be really dead, Blanc must solve the case and find out who the killer is.
The film stars Daniel Craig as Benoit Blanc, Edward Norton as Miles Bron, Janelle Monáe as Cassandra “Andi” Brand, Kathryn Hahn as Claire Debella, Leslie Odom Jr. as Lionel Toussaint, Jessica Henwick as Peg, Madelyn Cline as Whiskey, Kate Hudson as Birdie Jay, Dave Bautista as Duke Cody, and Ethan Hawke in a currently unknown role. Glass onion is one of two sequels already greenlit by Netflix.
“The first, [Johnson] had the idea in his head for years, but he didn’t put pen to paper until the end of January and we were filming it at the end of October, which is super fast,” said producer Ram Bergman ComicBook. com. “This movie he really had no idea. He just stopped thinking and we were… From the time he really started writing, nine months later, a year later, we were filming. So the good thing” He is very motivated to do the next one as soon as possible. But you know, we’ll see how fast he is, but this is going to be a challenge. It’s going to be more challenging. So we’ll see how long it takes.”
