It's Tony having a little fun at Cap's expense. Captain America is from a much earlier period where swearing was less socially acceptable than it is today, and by reflex he tells Tony off. He's still getting used to the social norms of the 21st century. Tony's mocking him for being so outdated, which is a bit of a theme with the two of them - he refers to ...

It was always unclear why Captain America couldn't lift Mjolnir in Age of Ultron. Was he not worthy at all? Unlikely; it's Captain America after all, worthiness goes with the character, his MCU version at least. Plus, Mjolnir did move. (Note that in the comics, Cap has wielded Mjolnir) Was he not completely worthy yet? Possibly. After all, there is still ...

She was sterilized. "You know what my final test was in the Red Room? They sterilized me. Said it was one less thing to worry about." Natasha Romanoff, Avengers: Age of Ultron We don't know the exact procedure undertaken as part of the Red Room training, we just know that she is no longer capable of having children, as the people who trained her wanted ...

I think you misinterpreted the scene. Hawkeye, being a very sharp archer, has shown to have heightened senses (refer to all his archery scenes through Avengers 1 & 2). With such senses, he had heard Scarlet Witch walk up to him. Basically he hit her before she had the chance to warp his mind. If you look at all the scenes involving Scarlet Witch ...

Tony Stark worked with Bruce Banner himself on the Hulkbuster armor (affectionately known as Veronica) in order to stop the Hulk if he ever got out of control. You have to remember that Bruce Banner neither trusts nor likes The Hulk as he doesn't really have much, if any, control over the Hulk after he has 'hulked out'. When the Helicarrier is attacked by ...

Because he's worthy of it. The fact that the Vision can lift the hammer, in contrast to all the other heroes (apart from Thor, of course) is an important clue to convey the Vision's actual spiritual purity and superiority. Remember that the Vision was created in a collaborative process by the Avengers, taking Tony's benevolent AI J.A.R.V.I.S, putting it ...

Out-of-universe - it's a name, rather than an acronym. A mix of 'Ultroids' and 'tron' In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Roy Thomas, who co-created Ultron, answered: Where did the idea for Ultron come from? I never considered myself very good at making up names. Some of the first creatures I made up fighting The Avengers were part of a ...

"Is it some kind of reference to Archie comics?" Indeed. From Comicbook.com: When asked why that was the case, [the film's writer and director, Joss] Whedon explained that it tied back to Bruce Banner's own personal backstory. More particularly, to Betty Ross, Hulk's love interest in his solo movies and the comics. "You know, I just decided to call ...

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 Universe:...

tl;dr: JARVIS is not The Vision. JARVIS is one part of The Vision. The Vision is a unique entity that was formed by the merging of quite a few distinct elements: Ultron's base "operating system" The power of the Mind Stone The "protocols" (personality?) of JARVIS. Random Thor Magic Most of The Vision is actually based on Ultron. Remember that Ultron spent ...

JARVIS was gone, Tony thought... then he found him in pieces, in the internet, protecting the access to the launch codes from Ultron's attempted hack. Tony re-collected JARVIS and took him back to the tower. Tony wanted to put JARVIS into the new fancy body to fight against Ultron. I'm guessing he figured that JARVIS wouldn't be quite the same as when he ...

As per cinemablend.com "There are two different gloves. That was not Odin’s vault that you see at the end." - Kevin Feige That means Thanos doesn't have to grab the Glove from Asgard at all. Even the gloves are of different hands: Left hand glove in Age of Ultron And right hand in Thor But in Thor: Ragnarok, Hela made it clear that it was a ...

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 ...

Yes, In Captain America: Winter Soldier, there's a scene where Natasha kisses cap to avoid getting caught by bad guys. Also check this question and I believe he was referring to that situation. Here's the scene.


24

There is nothing specific about the words. They are just a trigger phrase/word to get Hulk's attention, like "en guard" or "Avengers Assemble". Whedon said: What about the words she says? “Hey, big guy. Sun’s gettin’ real low.” I actually added that later in the game, I think something basically to get his attention and to have a phrase that he knows, ...

Because he was willing to sacrifice himself to protect others. The reason why Cap managed to do so is already explained in Thor Trilogy. Thor was unproved of worthy in Thor when he committed a war which could lead to deaths of many. However, when he was willing to sacrifice himself for those who he loved by the end of the film, he proved himself worthy. ...

"Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor". "Worthy" is pretty vague, however Captain America is a valiant soldier, it would make sense that he is "worthy" of holding Mjolnir. There is already precedent for it in the comics: Captain America has already weilded Thor's hammer in The Mighty Thor #390, from 1988 and again ...

This is explained in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Episode 19, "The Dirty Half-Dozen". Phil Coulson (Who the Avengers think is dead) is now the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and are trying to fight Hydra from underground, since S.H.I.E.L.D officially doesn't exist anymore after the events of The Winter Soldier. Coulson and his team attack one Hydra ...

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 ...

It takes the Soyuz TMA Spacecraft, really the Descent Module, 3.5 hours to go from the ISS to Touch Down, including undocking, deorbit, Entry, and parachute descent. That's from ~250 Miles above earth, in Low Earth Orbit. Considerations must be made to protect the ISS, reduce debris in LEO, target the landing, reduce speed safely, and protect the crew. ...

There is no significance, and it doesn't seem to be a running gag either. As per this twitter conversation between a fan and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn; "Hey @JamesGunn was Star Lord's 12% plan from GoTG a deliberate reference to Stark's 12% credit from Avengers or was it a happy coincidence?" "No. The number 12 is often used in ...

The visions that Scarlet Witch gave to the various Avengers basically played on their worst fears, e.g. Tony saw the Avengers dead because he failed; Natasha relived her training in the Red Room, etc. For some reason (that I don't think is adequately explained in the movie), Thor's vision was far more directly relevant than the others. As an Asgardian, Thor ...

tl;dr: Assuming that he knew about the 4th Infinity Stone stone before his vision, he most likely learned about it sometime off-screen, between Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron. First of all, we can assume that Thor probably has fairly in-depth knowledge of the Infinity Stones, given that his friends do. This seems to be part of the ...

According to this wikia he did destroy Ultron Vision: You're afraid. Ultron: Of you? Vision: Of death. You're the last one. Ultron: You were supposed to be the last. Stark asked for a savior, and settled for a slave. Vision: I suppose we're both disappointments. [Ultron chuckles] Ultron: I suppose we are. Vision: Humans are odd. They think ...

Banner's worst nightmare is killing innocent people, he has a major fear of losing control while in a populated area. This point is made multiple times during the movie ("don't turn green") and reiterated at the end of the movie: Romanoff: So what's our play? Banner: I'm here to get you to safety Romanoff: What about the drop-zone evacuation? Banner:...

Loki didn't control 2 stones. While Loki used the Mind Stone though the Scepter on Hawkeye, the SHIELD Agents and Erik Selvig, he didn't use the Space Stone himself. Rather, he had Selvig build a machine to open the portal over New York and the Tesseract was activated through that by Selvig, not Loki, so if you was to count using the Tesseract though the ...

Her ability to levitate herself comes out of nowhere in the movie, I assume to enhance her dramatic entrance in the final scene. So there's no real explanation for why she doesn't ever try to do it earlier. In particular, there were times when levitating herself would have been very useful, such as However, Wanda's major character development during the ...

Because Tony is a complicated person. In Universe: A bit of backstory. MCU J.A.R.V.I.S. is a backronym for Just A Rather Very Intelligent System. It's a backronym because the real Jarvis was Howard Stark's butler. He's seen in Agent Carter, and in the Iron Man 2 tie-in comics. Jarvis has been a real person and an AI butler for Tony in the main 616 and ...

Where is the Tony Starks hand? Clearly it's still inside his original armour As you can see from the above image, the HulkBuster "armour" wraps around the standard IM suits and is considerably larger than the original armour suit size. Essentially, the whole of Tony is inside the HulkBuster torso. It's likely his actual arms don't even reach the shoulder ...
