'Fantastic Beasts' Was Packed With Clues That Credence Could Be Related To Voldemort
And although my knowledge of Potter-lore pales in comparison to my wife’s, I still have a good grasp on the basics. Like a general timeline of events and that Voldemort, despite being a super evil being, is a relatively new one; he’s predated by the events of Fantastic Beasts by a few decades, as the movie’s set in 1926.
However, believe that Beasts’ tortured villain, Credence, is definitely connected to he-who-shall-not-be-named in some not-so-tenuous ways.
The insane obscurus power that Credence possesses and how a piece of him seemingly escapes at the film’s conclusion when he’s been “destroyed” strongly suggests that the series isn’t done with the boy-with-the-weird-haircut (his new name now, deal with it).
