As far as the Quicksilver that appears in Age of Ultron, we never see him do anything like changing the trajectory of objects in mid-flight. The closest we come, I believe, is when he is able to snatch Hawkeye's arrows out of the air in the initial fight in Sekovia. It's possible that he's simply not fast enough to do that. More likely, though, given how new ...

No, they are completely different characters. As discussed in this Sci-Fi & Fantasy question and this Movies & TV question, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are rare exceptions to the general licensing deal that Marvel made with Fox. Part of that deal is that Fox has the exclusive rights to make movies about any of the "mutants" in the Marvel ...

They don't really spend a lot of time explaining this in the movie, you have to piece it together from various bits of dialog during that scene (and others later on). But, Ultron isn't "in" the scepter, rather, the scepter contains the last piece of technology Stark and Banner needed to finish building the Ultron project. Given that Banner was already ...

Baron Strucker is a long time villain in Marvel comics and as per my knowledge he is quite under used in Marvel Cinematic Universe (Specially movies). For better understanding you need to know his all appearances. Appearances Within Marvel Cinematic Universe: + Movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Mid-credit scene) Avengers: Age of Ultron TV ...

In the documentary The Matrix Revisited (Wiki • IMDB • Amazon) features an interview with Hugo Weaving (starting at approximately 48 minutes in, a segment called "The Interrogation Room") in which he says that he wanted a "neutral accent" for the character and for him to be "not robotic but not really human. I kept thinking about a '50s newsreader or someone ...

The muzzle speed for a aircraft is much faster that that of say the handgun Hawkeye used to make him fall through the floor. Think of it as catching a slow football toss vs stopping 10 footballs thrown by Manning from hitting a target

I strongly suspect they've had a sexual relationship at some point. Brief fling, something more, difficult to speculate. In one episode, we see them sharing a cigarette. While not always an indication of intimacy, I've never known anyone in my life that does that without it meaning something. In another episode, Jimmy calls late at night, and she says ...

I would say that, if there had to be one, Cap would be the obvious choice. As others have mentioned, he has a history of leading others from his work before he was encapsulated in the ice. He also is very mission-oriented and very much interested in the greater good at his own personal cost. Whether this makes someone a good leader or not is debatable but ...

I believe his major motive behind this was he did not want to endanger anybody. He was very wary when We have seen this in the past as well. In Hulk (2003 film) he leaves civilized settlements and goes to live in a forest alone. In Incredible hulk (2008 film) yet again we see him living in a remote place. In Avengers we see him living in a remote ...

In the MCU, Captain America is shown to be the leader. This is evident from the main battle in Avengers (2012), where Tony Stark tells Captain to make the battle plan. To go off the scenes, Captain has military experience. Captain has leadership experience (having led a team against HYDRA back in the day). He also has formal military training. These ...

The way Ultron sees it, Once you take away all the extraterrestrial threats, Humans are the ones causing all the ruckus. In the moment that Ultron boots up, we see him scanning through all files, many of which include human destruction. Images & videos of various wars that humanity has fought over the centuries. This causes him to take up an issue ...

It's because of the way he died. At the very least, it is used in the story "just because" in order to remind us of the way he died. Pintel: So, what Barbossa did is, he tied a cannon to Bootstrap's bootstraps. Ragetti: [snickering quietly] Bootstrap's bootstraps... Pintel: And the last we saw of ol' Bill Turner, he was sinkin' into the crushing ...

According to the Breaking Bad Wiki (I have no idea where they get this stuff...), Saul is in his late 40's during that series. Since Better Call Saul is supposed to take place 6 years prior to Breaking Bad, you can assume he's supposed to be in his early-to-mid 40's at the beginning of BCS.

Well, this may date back to the era of The Keystone Cops. As I recall from a Film class I took in college, one of the tenants of early comedic cinema was "to mock authority". Putting an authority figure (policeman) in a situation where he appears to be a bumbling idiot was a great way to elicit laughs in the early days. While the technique is still widely ...

Captain America is the leader for the Avengers. If we look back at the past movies for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are many points leading to this. Iron Man is taken off the team for the Avengers in Iron Man 2 after Black Widow's report on his life. When they later put him on the team in The Avengers, it is to look at Selvig's research at first, ...


2

Now first of all, we have to take a look at the functionality of the costume (or rather suit), which obviously is the creation of a genius scientist and inventor. In fact Iron Man is pretty much the Marvel equivalent of Batman (though, less brooding and more self-centered, and with a war trauma as incentive instead of the loss of his parents), whose strength ...

If by captain you mean "Leader" then yes. From all the Avengers Captain America has the most experience in combat and leading a team from his battles in WW2 (with the exception of Thor maybe). This qualifies him to lead the team because he's able to make quick decisions and form a battle plan while still being able to fight well without being too distracted. ...

Let me counter this with another question (and an admittedly slightly speculative answer): What makes you think Vision didn't get the power of Thor at all? In the movie we see Vision actively wield Mjölnir, not only when he hands it to Thor, he also uses it in combat. So he definitely can wield the hammer and make use of its power. The question remains then, ...

This is all just my personal opinion, which I will eventually back up with quotes. During one scene we see Tony show a 'live holographic feed' of JARVIS to Bruce. JARVIS has been completely designed by Tony, from the ground up. Every single element of JARVIS has been built, refined and perfected by Tony over (we assume) a large period of time. Then he ...

This is Rumpelstiltskin from Shrek The Third and Shrek Forever After, where he is the main antagonist.

PK is a hindi slang. It expands as 'Pea kay' and it means being drunk. Whenever Amir Khan's character talks to the general people, they feel like his statements and questions are absurd and idiotic. So they ask him whether he is drunk (PK), and hence he gets this name.

I strongly believe that Hulk leaving towards the end has to do with Natasha Romanoff and Bruce Banner's romance in the middle of the movie. Their plan is to leave The Avengers and free from responsibilities and go somewhere and live happily but they both know it'll not turn out as they planned, especially Bruce, he mentioned from his very own words that ...

It may be a subtle clue that Petyr still loves Catelyn, not Lysa. If Petyr and Catelyn were married, Petyr would be Robin's uncle. It could be hinting that because of Petyr's continued feelings for her, in his mind, he's Robin's uncle, not his father. I'm not sure how Robin would know that, but it's an alternative theory.


15

This is speculation, but I would assume that it is simply because Lysa told him that is who he was, in the broadest sense of things. As a child in English culture, it's not uncommon to for parents to introduce their friends to their children as uncles or aunts. It is much less complicated for the child to know instantly that this is a person that they can ...


12

"Uncle" here is being used as term of very close familial ties, not because Petyr is actually family, but because Lysa wants him to be. Robin's mother, Lysa Arryn, is in love with (or, perhaps more accurately, infatuated with) Petyr Baelish. She would have preferred to marry him, but was basically sold off to Jon Arryn as part of his support for Robert in ...

I'll take it a step further. I think on some level he had a death wish. Or at least was willing to die to corrupt others. How else would you explain this? From the Screenplay: The Joker walks towards the Bat-pod, which SPEEDS towards him. He is FIRING his gun RANDOMLY at the oncoming traffic. THE JOKER: "Hit me. Come on. Hit me." ...

This is the conversation between Jack Sparrow and Bootstrap Bill when the latter came to deliver Davy Jones' message and the black spot: Jack: And to what do I owe the pleasure of your carbuncle? Bootstrap: He sent me. Davy Jones. Jack: So it's you, then. He shanghaied you into service, eh? Bootstrap: I chose it. I'm sorry for the part I played in ...

In the film Davy Jones is supposed to be ferrying souls lost at sea into the Locker so they can be at peace. However, the Davy Jones in the film is not doing his job properly, hence the weird/fish/ocean/coral like appearance of him and his crew. Instead, Davy Jones is attacking pirates and sailors and offering them a choice, to die or to serve on his ship. ...


4

There is a common sailors' phrase: "Davy Jones' Locker" which means "the bottom of the ocean": Davy Jones' Locker, also Davy Jones's Locker, is an idiom for the bottom of the sea: the state of death among drowned sailors and shipwrecks. It is used as a euphemism for drowning or shipwrecks in which the sailor(s)'s and/or ship(s)'s remains are consigned to ...

Absolutely, he can. While there's all sorts of questions that can be raised about the ethics and morality of it (not to mention the religious aspect of swearing the oath before their gods), legally the deserters are executed as part of the "king's justice." This is actually one of the first things we see in season one. After being attacked by white ...

The Joker is insane - that is his defining characteristic. Remember when Batman knocked him off the building? As he plummeted to his presumable death, he was laughing hysterically. He was genuinely bummed out when Batman caught him with his grappling gun and saved him. He was also clearly enjoying the beating Batman gave him in the interrogation room. ...

She doesn't kill John because the contract was pulled, so she would break another rule and not even get payed for the kill. The movie is unclear what happens if someone breaks the "no killing in the hotel", it just states that there are "heavy punishments" on breaking it. In the movie everybody except Perkins obeys the rule and it is probably not very ...

The difference I would make between the interest she had with Edric Storm and Jon Snow is that Edric was Baratheon, the same blood as her "true King", that is Stannis. This "King of the North" is not recognized by anyone else than the Northerners when they rose up against King's Landing. I think that, more than the blood, it is his potential that ...

Not a bad supposition She wants him bad In the books Melisandre is very interested in Jon Snow, believing that there is some power in him: [from A Dance With Dragons] She does not explain exactly where she believes his source of 'power' to be from, but she definitely feels it. Jon though, immediately assumes that it's because she thinks he's a "Wolf" ...

I will add from a correspondence with George R. R. Martin: [Interviewer] Is there any chance that Jon could be released from his oaths of the nightwatch?[George_RR_Martin] The great council would have released Aemon from his maester's oath, so I suppose it would be possible. With an appropriate ...

This is really two questions, so I'll answer it in two parts. The question of legitimization, I believe, is pretty clearly answered: only a King can do so. In the novels, for example, Roose Bolton's son is legitimized by Tommen, though I don't know if that's made as clear in the show. In either case, "King" Robb legitimized Jon Snow before he died, when he ...

First of all, can anyone legitimise a bastard except for their father? Only a king may legitimize a bastard. Not even a father can do that. Lots of precedent to that. In the show canon, we have Ramsay Snow who was legitimized by King Joffrey as a reward for his father's service in the Red Wedding. Historically, King Aegon IV legitimizing his bastards ...

In S05E03 she talks to her squire, Podrick Payne about Renly Baratheon. I don't remember the exact dialogues but she says something like this, Brienne's father had thrown a ball in order to find a suitable match for young Brienne. He invited a dozen or so young lords to the event. The young lords behaved as if they were ready to combat each other to ...

The Joker really didn't care about death at any point even if Harvey pulled that trigger then. The biggest example for that is during the scene when he falls of the building during the fight with Batman even when he is falling, he laughs hysterically before Batman catches him with grapple gun. Harvey Dent was Joker's biggest ace. When he gave him the gun he ...

Perhaps it is too early to answer this question, as we are barely into the season, but here's my wee bit of speculation (to be updated if we know anything more). Arya's original kill list was: Joffrey (dead) Cersei Walder Frey Meryn Trant Tywin Lannister (dead) The Red Woman (show only, not in the books) Beric Dondarrion (show only, not in the books) ...

Let's break this apart to a few bullet points: Meereen is not one of the Free Cities. The term the Free Cities is given to a number of cities that freed themselves from Valyrian rule. They are: Braavos, Volantis, Pentos, Lys, Qohor, Norvos, Tyrosh, Lorath and Myr. Meereen, on the other hand is one of the Slaver Cities, all that remains of the Ghiscari ...

Not every person is the same from a particular region or group. Some people value their life. Or most of them says "Valar Morghulis", does not mean no one there is afraid of dying. In our world, also every region has different kinds of people. similarly in the Game of Thrones universe all kinds of people are present everywhere. Not every northerner is a ...

Little known piece of trivia: When Harvey holds the Joker at gunpoint in the hospital scene, you can see that the Joker is actually holding the revolver’s hammer with his finger, thus preventing the shot in case Harvey's coin lands on “bad” side. The Joker was never in any danger at all. Here’s a picture from the scene:


4

Because he's the Joker and he's a bit of a whackjob? Seriously though - he was giving Harvey the opportunity to kill him while simultaneously manipulating him and twisting his anger to turn it onto Batman and Gotham city. By giving him the gun, he was giving Harvey the power to kill him as it was then his choice not to pull the trigger.

Pycelle has an intense desire to maintain the status quo of his own position and as such, will do everything within his power to support those who will allow him to maintain his capacity. Those who can or will not accommodate this will be on his bad side, thus he will work against them via the manipulation of his feeble old man ruse. This explains his ...

It seems not. You are correct to assume that The Mountain (Gregor Clegane) comes before The Hound (Sandor Clegane) in the order of inheritance1, since he is older. The only misunderstanding is that a Knight cannot inherit lands2. The opposite is correct, a Knight can inherit the House's estate. For example Edmure Tully is a Knight, he is also the Heir ...

Zack Snyder (the film director) has stated that Batman v Superman would take inspiration from the Frank Miller comic, The Dark Knight Returns.1 The biggest deal was, Snyder brought out Man of Steel actor Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) to use his cool voice to read the following piece of dialogue: "I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years ...

Christian Grey has a phobia, it's all connected to his past especially in his old family. That's all. PS: currently reading the book 2.

I think plain and simple it's a "fourth-wall" thing. He was waiting for the dialogue card to roll in when the policeman started talking to him, as was the premise of the movie. When this didn't happen he was confused, it felt as if he was ostracised not only from the hollywoodland world, but from this same "The Artist" picture altogether. Thus he decided it ...

First thing, In Gotham, they have made characters different from the other incarnations. Most of the characters look like in a gray era, they didn't choose any side yet. Like Nygma, Cat etc. This Alfred also looks like in a grey era, he is a good guy with some darkness inside too, which might appear in future episodes. Alfred's nature towards Bruce has ...
