We’ve always been told that what we see on TV and in movies isn’t real. But some of these stories have become part of our history as we grew up watching them unfold on screen. Certain movies and TV shows are so convincing that you would believe that the fictional characters and fake companies and products are real. These are our top five favourite fake companies we wish we could work for or spend our money at:


Wayne Enterprises

When young Bruce Wayne‘s mother and businessman father were killed, he inherited their vast fortune which included the lucrative family business, Wayne Enterprises. Wayne Enterprises is the backbone of Gotham and also the reason Batman has such badass gadget and gear.
