The last time that we saw the beloved soccer ball from Cast Away (2000), he was floating on the ocean, tragically separated from the adoring Chuck Noland (Tom Hanks). We all know where Chuck went from there, but what do you think happened to Wilson?

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls099456155/
Poll: TBD

Suggestions welcomed. : )

He decided to cast a vote on an IMDb poll about that ever happened to him. He had learned about it after getting a ton of mail.

Dan. Yep. It's nowhere near done. Not indicating that she has yet to update other people's suggestions but there are duplicate placeholder spots: Lost and Jaws have two each.

Wilson got his captain's names confused - often

Groucho Marx ... Captain Geoffrey T. Spaulding - The African explorer

Groucho Marx Margaret Dumont and Lillian Roth in Animal Crackers 1930

Animal Crackers (1930)

Hooray for Captain Spaulding !

Sorry. I had fixed the post. It should work now. That is Wilson himself talking.

That was meant for the 2nd image link for Wilson (1947).

He moved in next door to a host of a home improvement show and became the wise neighbor “Wilson”who nobody ever saw.

Dennis the Menace (1959–1963)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052461/reference
Dennis' wide-eyed curiosity, well-meaning attempts to help out, 
and his simply being a normal, red-blooded American boy growing up 
always seemed to lead to trouble.
Usually on the receiving end was Dennis' next-door neighbor George Wilson

The little menace is driving neighbor  Mr. Wilson crazy
