Maze Runner Film Series: Details
As you may know, the first film opened with Thomas, who was trapped in a maze with other boys. Thomas is pretty clueless about the outside world except for some memory of WCKD, World Catastrophe Kill Department. At the end of the first installment, Thomas and his buddies escape the Maze. In the second series, you see Thomas and follow Gladers hunting for WCKD. They reach the Scorch, an unbelievably harsh landscape.
The second installment leads to a fight between the WCKD and the Gladers. In the third, The Death Cure you see Thomas and party in the most dangerous missions. They have to break into Last City to save the day. The last City isn’t that easy to get into; it’s a labyrinth controlled by WCKD.
Maze Runner, all three installments have become huge hits. Officially the word is that Death Cure which released this year is the final movie of Maze Runner series. But that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating! With the incredible success of the last three, fans have been wondering if Maze Runner 4 comes along the way. And I am here to tell you that there is no such proposition at the studios.
If you have read the books, you may recall The Death Cure is the last of them. The trailer of Death Cure described it as a final saga, the last ride, etc. And given how the movie was in tune with the book, there’s no material left really to talk about more. This is it for the Maze Runner film series you guys. Don’t get your hopes high.
