Why did SHIELD trust Zola?

This transfer of German (even Nazi) scientists has a basis in reality. The Germans had brilliant scientists during the war and the US and other powers were willing to..erm...overlook their possible ...

Now that Captain Marvel is out, we finally know how Fury lost his left eye in the MCU. He was playing with and petting Goose, the "cat" they found in the research facility, and Goose scratched his ...

How did Nick Fury lose his left eye?

No. It is not explained in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever except the conversation you already mentioned. This may or may not be explained in future films, but it is pure speculation for now. ...

We don't know precisely but we do know that SHIELD/HYDRA have been aware of Steven Strange since before Captain America: The Winter Soldier even if only as a potential problem/threat using Arnim Zola'...

Why did Captain America remove his mask while fighting Batroc the Leaper?

It's thematic for multiple reasons. It's a continuation of Steve's character plot. Is Captain America just a symbol, or a man? It ties into the overall plot of the movie. Who is the man behind the ...

Captain America Shield Deflection

Even though it's just vibranium -- with Capt. having no innate relationship with this material -- the shield most often behaves in a way that perfectly reflects Capt.'s intentions at that time. For ...

How did S.H.I.E.L.D. know about Dr. Strange in Captain America: The Winter Soldier?

Before the events of (and during the beginning of) the film Doctor Strange, Dr. Steven Strange was an incredibly-skilled, highly-accomplished neurosurgeon. It is likely that this was enough to put him ...

Why did Captain America remove his mask while fighting Batroc the Leaper?

I think it's part of the cameo from George St-Pierre. He's having a fight vs a UFC champion, so to complement the cameo he goes without a mask to make it feel like a UFC fight. I have not found ...

Which Marvel character is "some guy from Egypt"?

Currently, it is unknown / unclear. Jasper Sitwell's line is not "some guy from Egypt", it's "a TV anchor in Cairo". At the time of writing, it wasn't made clear who the person ...

Was the Winter Soldier inspired by Sky High?

Barring evidence to the contrary, I'd say there's no direct connection. It's more likely just common archetypes and visualization of characters through costume. The primary hero often wears costumes ...

Is there an explanation for Batroc's accent?

What happened to Captain America's suit?

I couldn't find any reference to what happened to Cap's new suit in the final movie. But in the deleted scene it's shown that there's a tracking device in the suit that S.H.I.E.L.D. tries to use to ...

How do the other 5 Winter Soldiers get subdued and stored in cryogenic tubes?

The long and the short of it is that it's never explained, in either the movie or the source comic. They were most likely gassed or controlled in some other way, but they somehow ended up back in ...

Captain America Shield Deflection

There is really no explanation other than this is a plot hole. At times, the shield absorbs kinetic energy, as with the bullets. At others, Cap is bouncing it off all kinds of things with inhuman ...
