comment All-Inclusive Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline
Yes, there are already two such timelines on StackExchange (movies.stackexchange.com/a/21952/1146 and scifi.stackexchange.com/a/45654/2816), both of which are based on marvelcinematicuniverse.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline

comment How did Thor know the Power stone was in play?
Also true; assuming Asgard knows who Thanos is, that would definitely raise the profile of those events and make it more likely that they'd pay attention.

comment How did Ultron come to be in the Sceptre?
both? "Ultron" is the end result. The Mind Stone is just a big part of what went into making Ultron, it's his 'operating system' (Stark's words). I contend that the "code" for that "OS" was a manifestation of the Mind Stone's power in a form that was usable by the human technology it had available, and what allowed Ultron to be a true, sentient being vs. a pre-programmed JARVIS-like system.

comment How did Ultron come to be in the Sceptre?
except that JARVIS first says that the scepter is just a container for something inside of it, then says he found the computer code, implying that the code was part of the "thing inside"...

comment Isn't the Quicksilver from Avengers 2 the same as the Quicksilver from X-Men: Days of Future Past?
This answer is based on the facts as they have been revealed to us by Marvel executives. These two characters are available because Fox agreed to let them be, end of story. Why Marvel choose to fight for these two, according to Feige, is because they were well known as Avengers than the other mutants, but the idea that Fox would pay for the X-men and not get exclusive rights to Wolverine is almost silly.

@JohnnyBones Marvel already has dozens of universes, including at least two extremely long-running comics (the mainstream -616 and the Ultimate one). The MCU and Fox Universe are just two more of them, neither of which actually matches the original -616 precisely.

comment What was Thor doing?
@AnkitSharma yes, and if they had kept it longer I don't think it would have been nearly as confusing or "out of nowhere".. but the movie was already 2.5 hrs long.

comment Can Quicksilver push bullets out of the way?
perhaps he might have gotten to that point eventually, but obviously now we'll never know :(

Ultron in the comics is a robot created by Hank Pym (Ant-Man) that becomes sentient and rebels.

comment How did Ultron come to be in the Sceptre?
Basically, yes. It's not clear how much progress Stark had made on Ultron by the start of the movie, but it is obviously a project that both he and Banner were familiar enough with that Banner immediately knew what Stark was talking about. The scene just as the party is about to start shows JARVIS trying to "interface" the Ultron project and the scepter code together, which is ultimately what created the Ultron character.

comment Can the King release a man of the Night's Watch from their vows?
AFAIK, the Night's Watch doesn't answer to the King of Westeros, as it's existence predates the unification of the Seven Kingdoms by thousands of years, and the land they own is not part of any kingdom that swore fealty to the Targaryan invaders.

comment Can the King release a man of the Night's Watch from their vows?
although he doesn't specify who the appropriate authority is... the Great Council was willing to let Aemon take the throne despite his maester's oath, but I doubt they, specifically, have the authority to release someone from the Night's Watch. But his response implies that such an authority does exist...

comment Can the King release a man of the Night's Watch from their vows?
it was definitely Tommen in the novels, but the acceleracted the whole Ramsey storyline in the show, so I'm not sure.

comment Can the King release a man of the Night's Watch from their vows?
was Ramsey legitimized by Joffrey, or Tommen, in the show? I don't remember anything about the scene except Ramsey's reaction, which was directed towards Roose...

comment Why did Varys support the plot to assassinate Daenerys Targaryen?
from what I recall, the spoiler comes out of nowhere in the novels as well; right up through the end of Feast for Crows there's not even a hint. And Tyrion does end up with Dany in the novels, and I believe Viserys sends him there? As I said, if they're going to pull out that particular plot twist, it will be sometime soon.

comment Why did Varys support the plot to assassinate Daenerys Targaryen?
it's probably the biggest spoiler of the whole series, so yeah, I'd skip it. :)

comment Why did Varys support the plot to assassinate Daenerys Targaryen?
that's fine; I think I'll write up an answer anyway that's specific to the TV Show. (but we are pretty good on SF&F at keeping the two universes apart...)
