FAQ about The Man from Toronto

How Teddy and Randy stopped the Colonel’s Plan

Two pieces of information are needed to detonate an undetractable seismic explosive. This is the Colonel’s plan to kill the new Venezuelan president in The Men From Toronto. He was able to learn about the weapon many years ago and has planned to use it at the new Venezuelan Embassy in Washington. To prevent an assassination, members of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency created two fail-safes. These included a thumbprint for Mr. Green and a special access code from Mr. Coughlin. Teddy managed to get Mr. Coughlin to surrender the access code in Onancock Virginia. The Handler needed only to deliver Mr. Green’s thumbprint in The Man From Toronto’s end for a successful mission. Teddy and Randy found the real Mr. Green in Puerto Rico, and placed his severed thumb into a snack bag so it could be preserved until they meet the Colonel.

The Man From Miami is the Handler’s assassin and Teddy seems to have a leg up on them after taking the thumb. But they have another trick up their sleeves to stop the bomb going off. Teddy promises to be the Man From Toronto when he goes to the location where the Colonel and Handler meet. The Colonel has a photo of Teddy and someone identifying him to be the assassin. This causes a lot of confusion between Handler and the Colonel. Teddy concocts a false backstory in which Randy is the driver. This leads to a standoff between all parties. The stalling tactics of Teddy were a waste of time as he waited for the FBI to come in with windows to detain the Colonel and his men, the Handler and the Man from Miami. Although the FBI captures the Colonel with his men, The Man from Toronto’s ending allows the Handler and Man Of Miami to escape while Randy gets the money and escapes.

The Man from Toronto’s Wrong Finger Twist Explained

The Man from Toronto’s end has another part, and Katestar Woody Harrelson stops the assassination attempt on the Venezuelan president. The Colonel never had the chance to access all the information he needed because Teddy and Randy crashed the first meeting before he can use the untraceable bomb at Washington’s Venezuelan Embassy. Although he did enter the correct code to arm his bomb, Mr. Green was unable to use the thumb in time. The FBI was able to retrieve the finger from Mr. Green’s hand in the wake of the events. After testing the finger, it was confirmed that it wasn’t Mr. Green’s. The Man from Toronto revealed that Randy had cut off another person’s thumb in Puerto Rico. This would have meant that Randy’s good nature would have prevented the assassination.

Is There A Sequel to The Man from Toronto’s Ending?

The Men From Toronto looks like a possible franchise for Netflix and Sony. Woody Harrelson and Kevin Hart are well-known actors that could carry a new franchise. The streaming service is constantly looking for IP opportunities. The Man from Toronto’s end does not necessarily set up a sequel. Their stories are in good shape with Teddy’s success and Randy leaving the assassin life. Although Teddy Jackson’s video credits include a call from Randy reminding him that he does not forget Debora, Randy would go after Teddy in a The Man From Toronto sequel. Although there are many opportunities for writers to be creative and bring them together down the road – The Men From Toronto’s ending doesn’t pigeonhole that story.
