By the time Hannibal premiered, fans had been steeped in the palpable mystique of Anthony Hopkins' giddy version of Hannibal Lecter. Contrasted with Madds Mikkelsen's fish-eyed monster, Hopkins' portrayal of the therapist-turned-serial-killer is the height of camp, and there's nothing wrong with that. One of the main reasons that Hopkins' version is so iconic decades after he did that weird thing with his tongue, is that there's a twinkle in his eye and a cheek to his prevarication. Those looking for the same sense of humor in the Hannibal series may find uncomfortable drabness. Luckily certain characters, like Abel Gideon, pick up the slack.
What's on your mind?
I can’t understand is there multiple tv versions of Hannibal or ? And movies?? If so are they related and should I watch in order?
The real hook for the theory that Clarice's own brother is the villain is that she misidentified the man as her father when he appeared at the hospital. It could just have been the drugs in her system and her own desperation to escape at play, but Clarice was genuinely confused at the mystery villain's physical similarity to her dad. If Clarice is right that they resemble each other, the simplest explanation may very well be that it's because this is Clarice's younger brother all grown up. This would be set up by why "Ghosts of Highway 20" made such a point of Clarice having a brother in the first place. This also means that Clarice is plotting a complex, long-form story that will not only shed new light on Starling's past but also apply it to her present circumstances the same way The Silence of the Lambs did. There is so much yet to be revealed about what happened to the family Clarice left behind in West Virginia, and why she was sent to an orphanage instead of being returned to her mother after she ran away from the Montana ranch. Numerous questions would include whether Clarice ever saw the rest of her family again? If not, why not? And whatever happened to them? However, a long-lost or estranged Starling brother who is now an adult would certainly know about Clarice, especially after she became famous for killing Buffalo Bill in the prior year. If the mystery villain behind the conspiracy is Clarice's brother, then she could be facing her most personal enemy yet. And Clarice's brother may just hate his big sister for leaving him behind when he needed her most decades before the events of Clarice.
On the surface, Hannibal is a showcase of very human monsters, but one pivotal subplot involving Will Graham hints at the existence of ghosts.
I really do

I can’t find it. Please help if you have the time for that :)
With the new series now airing, I was wondering what people's thoughts are - anyone enjoying it so far?

Hello everyone! I'm writing this Discussion post to briefly give you an update about the current state of Hannibal Wiki, with particular focus on the release of television series Clarice and how that information will be added to the wiki.
First of all - I thought I'd introduce myself, for those of you I may not have interacted with before. I'm Lucas (ReverieCode on Fandom) and I recently became an administrator here. The wiki has also been an assignment I have as a Wiki Manager from Fandom. It's a pleasure to be here with all of you, and I look forward to helping out during the weekly release of Clarice where I can!
Adding Clarice series information
With regards to Clarice, information is beginning to be included here, but we are facing some unique issues: pages for the Hannibal TV series have (TV) into their names, to differentiate them from the book/film characters - for instance, we have Will Graham and Will Graham (TV). So, now that we will have two different TV series, that creates a problem: that (TV) is referring to what show?
It would be good to switch those (TV) names at some point to clarify that means "Hannibal series", but right now, the main focus is making sure Clarice content can be added here without too much confusion. Here are the main points to bear in mind for now:
Clarice content will be added into the original character pages (for the book characters that will reappear, such as Clarice herself) rather than with new, separate pages. This is because Clarice is intended to fit into the timeline of the books. (If this changes, we could always revisit this later on.)
Within those articles, the Clarice content (character stories) will be in a separate section under the books. This should help the editing flow.
There will also be a template for these sections, briefly explaining the context of Clarice and linking to a wiki policy page that explains how we organize each media in the wiki. These are coming soon!
If you have any thoughts on these, or ideas, you can always let me know, of course. None of these are 100% set in stone - these are just some basic initial points, to avoid disorder once the show is here.
Clarice weekly release + Discussions
Clarice will premiere on Thursday, February 11 at 10/9c in the US, after which it will be airing weekly. I wanted to point out that everyone is welcome to join in the editing efforts - if you're excited about the show and don't know where to start, feel free to leave me a message.
Here in Discussions we will likely have weekly posts for talking about the episodes. I'd like to encourage you to participate in these, and create your own posts about the show as well. (Remember that you can watch the trailer here.)
Also, as a final point - I know many people are fans of the Hannibal series alone, and may be on the fence about a show without Hannibal Lecter (who they can't use, due to licensing issues), but who knows - it may turn out alright. Let's have an open mind!
