According to Marvel: The youth who would eventually be called the Ancient One was born over five hundred years ago in Kamar-Taj, a village in a hidden land in the Himalaya Mountains in the area now known as Tibet. After travelling the world for centuries the Ancient One built a palace with an order of monks to protect and assist him. Let's see: although ...

This is never elaborated on in the movies, nor can I find any explicit interview that answers this question. However, Legolas is royalty (as the prince of the Woodland Realm), so it would make sense for the Elven troops to acknowledge him; at least more so than Aragorn, who at this point is not yet widely known nor treated as having any royal importance). ...

She wasn't drunk but she researched it According to this interview, she wasn't drunk in the scene, and she'd never really been that drunk in real life. But she researched it on how to act being that drunk: She went out and got some real life experience on the subject. B.J. Novak, who wrote and produced the show while playing Ryan on the series, agreed to ...

When Aragorn greets Haldir the army doesn't move but when Legolas greets Haldir the army turns in unison to face them. I don't think this has anything to do with Legolas as they don't do this until after Haldir & Legolas have greeted each other. I suspect that this is more to do with the Elves turning to face Theoden to acknowledge their commitment to ...

It's still unclear because we do not know what is necessarily still canon. As many know, when Disney bought Lucas Film, the former expanded universe including Knights of the Old Republic was demoted to "Legends" so that Disney could have a fresh start with the canon. In order to give maximum creative freedom to the filmmakers and also preserve an ...

The showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich gives the following explanation in an interview with ComicBook.com: We call him Jaskier... Yeah, absolutely. Jaskier is 100% in the show. It's interesting, because people ask about Jaskier all the time and why we went with his original name. It is funny, part of it was because when I read the books I read it as Dandelion (...

I didn't thought that before myself, but this video suggests: It's Two-Face's coin and seems legit to me.

In the book, Melba get's captured on the Rocinante and has a change of heart basically directly after talking to Anna. In particular, she's overcome with guilt over killing Ren. In the show Melba's change of heart has more to do with being interred next to James Holden, hearing his desperate one-sided conversations with Miller, and realizing that Holden is ...

There is no set "leader" Peter Quill is the nominal "Captain" (and thus "in charge" in his mind) because it's his ship they are riding in but these people are together by choice and decisions, at least from what we have seen, are made as a group. They all have their input and if one of the group disagrees they are free not to take part.

Unconfirmed but I believe that these are (via Den of Geek): Stripe Robot (rear) Luke Wilson will play Courtney's stepfather, crimefighting partner, and former superhero sidekick Pat Dugan, the pilot of the STRIPE robot. Here's the official character description... “Pat Dugan once went by the less-than-inspired superhero name of Stripesy, ...

Cameo roles are often uncredited in films. Usually it's to help keep the appearance secret, so the actor's name doesn't appear in a published cast list. In some cases, an actor will agree to appear in a film with the express agreement that their appearance will not be used in any publicity for the film. See Brad Pitt's (very) brief) appearance in Deadpool 2. ...

I agree with Silver Bebs, but I will add a few more reasons, based on my observations. Vito was visibly shocked to see them at 1:03 and after they left the gay bar, he stood there pondering. He didn't expect them to be making collections there such late. It's very likely he wouldn't be able to think straight after that encounter. As to whether or not they ...

In real life, kids that end up being raised feral generally don't know how to talk as they haven't had anyone to teach them. Here is an article about a real life girl that was raised feral, and her life after being adopted. Warning, it's pretty emotional.

It's in the books. I'm going to just paste this from the Coraline Wiki, as there's no sense re-writing a good explanation. Before the Pink Palace was separated to apartments, Mrs. Lovat used to live there with her twin sister. But in 1952, her sister mysteriously vanished one day, and Mrs. Lovat believed she was "stolen." Her grandson, on the other ...

The film very quickly shows a flashback (or Force vision) sequence of her parents and what happened to them, but nothing more. During that flashback scene Kylo Ren has a voice-over and mentions that Rey's parents could have been great but instead they chose to be nobodies. IMO that's a hint to them at least being force-sensitive. The way I interpret it is ...

On the one hand, Sonny did state that if the police didn't cooperate, bodies would start flying out the door. However, later on in the movie, while Sonny did look non-violent, he made himself out to be the only one who could control Sal, who he portrayed as a cold-blooded killer - e.g. if anything happened to him while he was out talking to the police, Sal ...

The simple answer is that she needed a patron to allow her to act. Max had the money she needed to live the lifestyle she wanted. Max would exchange the money for sex. The son was probably a mistake. Neither of them wanted to disrupt their life, so they told the kid his mother died at childbirth. Remember when he knocks on her door he doesn't call her ...
