That is a knock-off of a Rembrandt called Homer dictating his verses. In the original you can see the Scribe who he was dictating to. The reason his face is painted long and drawn is because Homer was blind. As its painting in there it is Homer contemplating the meaning of his verses. In the context of being in the office the two of them going back and ...

Is this a famous painting? I don't believe it's a famous painting, though several people seem to think it is a painting of the famous figure Rasputin. From Reddit user tangoliber: The painting of Rasputin in Dreykov's office sparked a lot of theories in my mind... From Reddit user Losary: ...but by the scene with Djerkov and Black Widow standing at the ...

In Loki (the show), we find out the answer to this. So to answer your question: However:

It's just a mistake by the screenwriter (Michael Waldron) who doesn't understand what a gambit is. The word that should have been used is dilemma which is a choice between two bad alternatives.

This is because, depending on who you ask, either Loki was sent to a different timeline of the TVA or reality was rewritten after Sylvie kills He Who Remains. It’s a good plan that quickly goes sideways. No sooner does he reach Mobius and Hunter B-15, “He realizes that in the time he's been sitting on that step, something has changed.” “Something has ...

Yes, this is spoilers for Endgame (and Infinity War, somewhat).

This is a reference to what happens to Nat in Avengers: Endgame. The reason Nat died is because she was sacrificed by Clint to get the Soul Stone. Of course it isn't as black and white as that and we, the audience, know exactly what happens but: It isn't clear how well known the events of Vormir are known to others even though Valentina (the woman who was ...

Taskmaster is a "perfect mimic"; she has the ability to copy the moves of other fighters once she's seen them. Dreykov boasts that he had to install the chip to be able to keep Antonia (Taskmaster) alive, and that was when he discovered she could mimic others. Near the end of the film, Natasha breaks the mind control on her and she stops fighting ...

Per the new Black Widow movie, the Budapest scenario has been somewhat clarified.

Thanos saw himself as a savior. Joe Russo said: So his messianic complex — he is now committed to following through on the idea he had many many years ago. He is not a stable — although he appears stable at times, he is not a stable individual. On Titan, Thanos says to Doctor Strange: I finally rest. And watch the sun rise on a grateful universe. The ...

Infinity stones are very capable of creating branched timelines. The TVA has a desk draw filled with a host of infinity stones, presumably from pruned timelines where they were used for the wrong purpose. Timestones are very able to generate variant energy and create new timelines if used for the wrong purpose due to their immense power, like the other ...

What she was saying is not incongruent with the TVA. Without the TVA there could be millions of timelines, right? The TVA just enforces the 'main' one (whatever they determine that is). When you mess with time you create the potentials for variants - the Ancient One was essentially saying that when you take out the time stone then the Hulk would be creating ...

Nope, the consensus is that he's disintegrated. There are many time this is seen. Among others the BBC confirms It is in these early scenes – while Loki is being processed through the TVA's Kafkaesque bureaucracy, full of bored office workers sitting amidst drab 1950s-style yellow and brown decor – that the show sucks you into its delightfully absurdist ...

The main thing Tony remembers about Howard as a father is his absence. Howard was much too busy with his company, and Tony wasn't really fathered much as a result. By the time of Endgame, Tony has seen the video Howard left for him, so he knows that Howard did in some way notice Tony, but Howard is still a very incomplete image from Tony's past. His business ...
