Comics-based Answer I would say yes, he probably was committed, and that is how to interpret him in the movies, because, in the comics, he is ultimately committed to his goals, even to the point of death. However, in the comics, dying is not a big deal for Thanos. He loved (currently I think he is fascinated by Oblivion, as per Civil War II; I'm not sure ...

Once Upon A Time took a spin on western literary classics and folklore, but also, in many cases, referencing Disney's animated works, which are also adaptations in and of themselves. Disney owns ABC, which was the network of Once Upon A Time. Once Upon A Time is an American fantasy drama television series on ABC which debuted on October 23, 2011, and ...

He likes screwing with Angel. He knows he's well covered with alibis, but gives those hints to make Angel think he's onto something and then triumphantly glows when watching Angel embarrassing himself when he's not able to prove anything.

It's not awkward, it's bragging. Badass Boast, Evil Boast, Evil Gloating. In character building it's a feat given to make audience sure who is the villain from the start. Usually with bad puns. Or for fun foreshadowing. In Bond Goldfinger (I think) the joke was "he's in a hurry he have a meeting with a press" which turn to be him crushed by literal press.

"Gilligan Whitehead" might be his name, according to another's of Sherwood Schwartz's TV shows. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilligan_(Gilligan%27s_Island)#Name At the end of A Very Brady Sequel, a movie based on The Brady Bunch characters also created by Sherwood Schwartz, Carol Brady reveals that her first husband was a professor lost on a boat. Dr. ...

It might sound too plain but the answer is yes. The Film didn't explore it more but in comics ( which this film was based on), Martha as the joker was explored in much more details: The alternate universe Flashpoint version of Martha Wayne is the Joker (and even resembles Heath Ledger's portrayal as seen in The Dark Knight). After Bruce Wayne is shot and ...

Sorry to disappoint you, but all the analysis of Who is Keyser Soze? is wrong - The point is, that Keyser Soze really DOESN'T EXIST !!! He the supervillain made up by Kevin Spacey's character (and the BIG clue is in his character's name 'Verbal'), who tells this story to get himself immunity and get himself released, not that he is really Keyser Soze.

When the first season of "Gilligan's Island" was released on DVD in 2004, it included a short documentary called "Before the Three Hour Tour." That piece featured materials from Sherwood Schwarz's first attempt to put the show together that indicated Gilligan's full name was to be: "Willy Gilligan." Schwarz purposely dropped that from the finished product. ...

Tom and Thom are shortened forms of Thomas in the same way that Will is a shortened form of William etc. If someone is called Tom/Thom, it is perfectly plausible that their birth certificate will say Thomas (and possibly they might be called that in more formal settings/by their parents etc). Source: Thom is also a first name variant of the abbreviation ...

According to Mike Dougherty, it's Behemoth. From an interview with William Bibbiani for Bloody-Disgusting from 2019.06.01: For example, one of the titans in King of the Monsters is a gigantic mastodon with human-like arms. [...] “That one is named Behemoth, so that’s a biblical reference, and he’s one of the few male creatures,” Michael Dougherty ...

Thanos needed to survive in order to subsequently destroy the Infinity Stones. If he had disappeared in the snap then someone else would simply have put on the gauntlet and brought everyone back. Therefore he must have planned to survive so he could remove the only way to undo the snap afterwards. Obviously he did not count on his opponents going back in ...

To be sure, this is a show and probably may things happen as screenwriting goes. And one reason we can conclude from the show is that Horik is cunning - why would he lose just his man against Borg if he can add Ragnar's too, reduce some of his own loses and increase chance for victory? But as historical possibilities, it is very possible and actually very ...

As pointed out by eduffy in comments, this character is decoy Lark. Medium.com also, have nice details about the character and also provide the information that he is played by stunt actor Liang Yang .

Eobard Thawne, the Reverse Flash, is the archenemy of the Flash. The TV show can never get rid of him entirely for this reason - they need someone who can challenge Barry step for step, and Thawne is pretty much the only real candidate. Barry fears Thawne for a number of reasons: Thawne killed his mother. Thawne has a greater level of experience using ...

Star Wars! What I have come to realize being a JJ Abrams/Bad Robot fan for over 20 years is that most of the early TV series (Alias, LOST, Fringe, Revolution, and the very short-lived Alcatraz) had a Star Wars foundation, but with different genre skins (Espionage, Epic Adventure, Crime Drama, Dystopian, etc) on top. What I mean by this is, most of these ...

No, but I think there is a lot to debate: I think that while the character has not expressed it, doesn't mean that perhaps this was one desired outcome the first Three-Eyed Raven and/or the role's creator(s) intended to reach... Jon Snow: I'm sorry I wasn't there for you when you needed me. Brandon Stark: You were exactly where you were suppose to ...

As the Three Eyed Raven, Bran does not have typical human emotions, behaviors, hopes, or desires. Earlier in season 8, Tyrion asks Bran if he wants to be lord of Winterfell, to which he replies, "I don't really 'want' anymore." This is a very broad statement indicating that Bran has no want of anything, including to sit on the Iron Throne. A Three Eyed ...

Was Sofia showing up at Cruise's character's funeral crying real or part of the Lucid Dream? Yes, that was real. This scene showing Sofia at David's funeral wasn't apart of his Lucid Dream, it was a continuation from David's flashback of him killing himself. When Sofia walked into David's apartment she looked at the door frame, the broken guitar where she ...

That said, I'm having a hard time believing this since up to S8E6 I can't recall any instance indicating Bran has wanted to become King, nor set-up anything to become King. Take the example of Jon. At no point did he want to become Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. He even tried to stop Sam from nominating him. But when he was voted in, he did it anyway ...

Yes. In S07E07, Samwell Tarly and Bran have this conversation: SAMWELL: What happened to you beyond the Wall? BRAN: I became the Three-Eyed Raven. SAMWELL: Oh! I don't know what that means. BRAN: I can see things that happened in the past. I can see things happening now, all over the world. I don't know if "now" means things literally ...

No. As displayed by Sansa, Bran had never expressed any interest in ruling. (TYRION) He crossed beyond the Wall, a crippled boy, and became the Three-Eyed Raven. He is our memory, the keeper of all our stories. The wars, weddings, births, massacres, famines. Our triumphs, mm, our defeats, our past.Who better to lead us into the future? (SANSA) ...

To understand most of the last season, you need to take a step back. It's also why the season is so irritating to most of the GoT viewers. It's a different genre than the rest of GoT. GoT is mostly a political drama. Season 8 is mostly a parable (with some elements of drama). In a drama, characters are portrayed as human being driven by multiple, often ...

We don't know There are some speculations but currently, we don't know who these new faces are, and as this is the series finale, it will probably stay that way. A few speculations below: Maybe Howland Reed We’ve not seen his face before, and he doesn’t have any sigils on his person. He’s also not dressed like a Northener or a Southener, so it’s ...

This is just a plausible theory. I was very disappointed that after training for so long to become this magical creature called Three Eyed Raven, Bran did nothing significant when it was expected of him. He plays no part in the fight against the Night King, no warging his way into the undead dragon to kill the Night King. He just sits there and pretty ...

In Lucifer, its explained that Hell is where a person goes to punish themselves. Lucifer and his dad have no bearing on people ending up there, it is up to the person. this is explained by Lucifer himself when Cain is dying. this is also why Lucifer punished himself about the death of his brother. pretending not to feel guilt doesn't stop Hell punishing you. ...

Jack Sparrow becomes the owner of the Black Pearl due mainly to the fact that he stole it from Barbossa. In the first movie, The curse of the Black Pearl, Jack and Will try solely to get Elizabeth back, and also get the chance to take the ship, and the crew.

Adding to TL;DR’s response, there’s one piece in the movie which might give away that something’s wrong with the T-1000. After it reassembles from the liquid nitrogen spill, it starts walking towards John, Sarah, and the Terminator. As it’s doing so, it has to get around a waist high metal structure. It tried walking right through, but as its hand makes ...

Most probably because Eobard Thawne killed Harrison Wells too early and took over the identity that Harrison Wells got no chance to bear a child. Also, there is no Harrison Wells in earth 38 mentioned yet or Supergirl in earth 1 etc etc. So it seems every earth don't have the same person's doppelganger.
