I think my personal head canon at this point is that Cloverfield was like this universes 9/11. It kinda changed everything, but at the same time time nothing - time marched on, people continued to live their lives normally.

So someone like Howard builds a bunker, but someone like his daugter is like ewwwww daaaaaaad. Stop being such a weirdo.

It kinda makes everything clear and clean cut for me, so I don't have to worry about the timeline of events too much.

Edit: More EW coverage trickling down to us:

Sounds like this next issue's gonna have a a big making of feature.

And I still don't really get what's going on. In fact this just confused me more than I already was.

In the photo of Howard and 'Maybe-Megan' leading the EW article, the sunlight's shining through on her face, and at the very left...might that be the shadow of the 'blood-goo splotch' that 'wedding-ring lady' left on the glass with her noggin...?

Wants MOAR...! Laughing

Did I miss something somewhere that shows there is a Megan in this film? No mention in casting or anywhere except the ARG.. While I dont doubt that Howard has a daughter named Megan in the story, there has been zero mention of that character outside the game.. As I have stated before, I dont believe we will ever hear from her directly at all..

She billed as Michelle. I do believe Megan is ARG only at this point.

There was a casting call for a Caucasian woman 18-34 (I think?) to play Megan, photographs-only. So I've been taking is as there are photos of Megan and that's all we'll ever see in the movie. I could totally see Howard imprinting Megan over MEW's character, though.

I'm still unsure, whether it's Megan. I suppose, Howard may just project his parental love to Michelle, being kinda ersatz for his daughter.

I still unsure, who is Nat. According newest interviews John Gallagher Jr. wasn't told about characters backstory, so he seems to be fewer informed than the other two (?). LOST practice.

And confirmation of stronger changes in the script gives me hopes! Smile

Children behaaaaaave, here's a new interview with JJ Abrams about 10CL: http://www.slashfilm.com/10-cloverfield-lane-connections/
And he flat out says it's not a sequel, but there are connections (the way we've speculated probably), and some other things that don't seem quite metaphoric, such as...
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
The fact that there IS a new monster in it, and "something else that happens"

Cool, Antares!! I'm excited about that second part of that statement. The first, well, we will see!

Indeed, but this thing is very interesting also:

Quote:
Just yesterday, Cloverfield producer J.J. Abrams teased that a third film with ties to the original found footage monster movie might be following next month’s forthcoming 10 Cloverfield Lane.

Yeah, I've read him say that in a few different articles (probably all quoting the same source). I do hope that it leads to a franchise! If it's good, that is.

It may be like Hook, Line, and Minker. We never saw the son beyond the ARG.
