comment A very unlucky man followed by a reporter
This is either the french film La Chèvre, or its american remake Pure Luck. (it's been a long time since I've seen either of them, but I think the scene with the salt happens in both films). - There are trailers for both films on Youtube: La Chèvre, Pure Luck

comment Why didn't he get the power of Mjolnir?
Steve and Tony briefly talk about it at the end of the movie. They theorize that since the Vision is an A.I., a machine, maybe different rules apply ("If you put the hammer in an elevator... It would still go up.")

comment Did Hugo Weaving Copy Carl Sagan to play Agent Smith?
Hugo Weaving says he emulated a “50′s news reader. (maybe it's worth mentioning that Weaving is Australian/British, therefore he had to emulate an american accent)

comment “I find her interesting because…she sleeps above her covers…”
Venkman says this as a response to Ray calling Dana his "girlfriend". - Ray: "Your girlfriend lives in the corner penthouse of Spook Central." Venkman: "She's not my girlfriend. I find her interesting because she's a client and because she sleeps above her covers, four feet above her covers. She barks, she drools, she claws!" - I always understood the joke as Venkman naming (ridiculous) non-sexual reasons why he is interested in her.

comment What are the details of the recent agreement between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios?
Even though the official press release says Sony Pictures will [...] have final creative control of the Spider-Man films I'd say one has to wait and see what that actually means. With Spider-Man becoming part of the MCU Marvel will certainly not give Sony the free means to fuck up their universe, especially since they are exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films.

comment Explanation for all beings to be able to speak English?
To quote director James Gunn: Peter Quill, if you look at his back, he has a translator device in his neck. That's how he understands everybody, how he's speaking alien languages.

comment How was the main problem dealt with?
I'm assuming that Amelia landed on Edmund's planet about the same time Cooper was rescued, which is 50+ years after sending the message to Murphy. This would mean that mankind left earth before knowing whether there is a suitable planet on the other side of the wormhole. - I actually kinda expected a twist ending, where Amelia lands on Edmund's planet only to find it already colonized. But for some reason the earthlings never made it to that planet in the 50+ years.

comment Why is Christian Bale not in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman?
@AndrewMartin - Yes, I get that, but the OP's question is: "Why didn't they cast Bale as Batman again?" And to me the answer isn't 'Because they couldn't get him to reprise his role' (as far as I know he wasn't even offered the role), but because the upcoming Batman is not supposed to be Bale's Batman.

comment Why is Christian Bale not in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman?
@AndrewMartin - My point is that the reason why a different actor will be playing Batman is because it's a different iteration. And this new iteration didn't come about because Bale was not interested in reprising the character, but because Nolan and Goyer made a creative decision to not have the TDK trilogy be part of the upcoming shared universe .

comment Why is Christian Bale not in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman?
@AndrewMartin - In 2007/08 Warner Bros. came very close to producing a 'Justice League' film. There was a script, a director and a cast, with Armie Hammer as a new Batman. - I don't think this reboot has anything to do with Bale not wanting to reprise his role. Nolan and Goyer simply never intended for the Dark Knight trilogy to be part of a shared universe.

comment Why did it take a rocket to lift off the Earth but just shuttles to lift off the other planets?
As a side note, escape velocity is only relevant for 'ballistic' trajectories, i.e. if you want to throw something off the earth. - It's possible to escape earth with much lower speeds. Elevators defy earth's gravity without being very fast. Now imagine an elevator that goes all the way up into space. If there is continuous "thrust", reaching escape velocity isn't important. - Now, who knows how the engines on those Landers and Rangers work?

comment Why is Christian Bale not in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman?
@AndrewMartin - Sure, if Bale had lobbied for role they probably would have tried to come up with explanations how superpowered heroes (Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman,...) could have existed in that trilogy's universe, but my point is that 'Man of Steel' and the subsequent DC movies weren't conceived as a continuation of Nolan's trilogy. So I'd say the casting of another actor isn't due to Bale's refusal, but because the upcoming movies are not connected to Nolan's trilogy.

comment Why is Christian Bale not in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman?
@AndrewMartin - Nolan's Batman wasn't designed to live in a universe where other superheroes exist: ' I don’t think our Batman, our Gotham, lends itself to that kind of cross-fertilization'. - And David Goyer, who wrote "Man of Steel" and co-wrote the Batman trilogy also said that the Superman reboot does not exist in the same universe as the Nolan's Batman.

comment Why is Christian Bale not in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman?
The upcoming DC movies are not connected to Nolan's Batman trilogy, so it seems perfectly normal to not cast Bale as Batman again. - Just like casting Ezra Miller as the Flash makes it clear that the TV-verse (which stars Grant Gustin as the Flash) is seperate from the movie-verse. (Unlike e.g. Marvels 'Agents of SHIELD')
