If you listen to Surtur's speech at the beginning of the movie, he explains the issue here pretty well, you just have to remember it by the end. Surtur, as we see him at the beginning, is only at a fraction of his power. Odin had beaten him and taken his source of power, the Eternal Flame, and hidden that away in Asgard. (Thor has actually believed that ...

But in Endgame when the heroes traveled back in time to get the Infinity Stones, at the events of The Avengers (2012 film), we see that Hulk from that time period talking. Which was never shown in the Avengers movie. Yes It's established that the Hulk can talk coherently provided he's not in complete "rage" mode during, say, battle. When he bashes Loki he ...

Whoever is worthy can possess the power of Thor. From the first Thor movie: Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor. So, since Cap is worthy, he possesses all the powers of Thor.

How come he didn't know what's happening at/to Nidavellir, Titan, Infinity Stones. Because he's not all-knowing. He can maintain a watchlist of known players but if he doesn't know about them, they won't be on the watchlist. It's absolutely clear that Dr Strange does not know about Thanos since when Banner says "Thanos is coming."...Strange's reply is ...

Because it's a running joke from Tony's side for Thor. He used it as a nickname for Thor in The Avengers: Tony: No hard feelings, Point Break, you got a mean swing. So it's just a continuation of that joke. And you might already know Point Break (1991), where Patrick Swayze's character has similarly long golden hair: ...

No, he's not being inconsistent. Thor's powers are his, they're not granted by Mjolnir. He's capable - even if he doesn't realise/know it - of using them without Mjolnir, including after it's destroyed as he does in Thor: Ragnarok. In the first Thor movie, Odin takes Thor's powers away from him, and then places the enchantment on Mjolnir. The intention is ...

Will Bruce Banner have broken bones once he's transformed back into his human self? No A lot of this is covered over on Science Fiction & Fantasy...at least from a comics perspective which seems to be closely followed by the MCU..at least as far as this Hulk is concerned. The two essential points are: Nothing happens to Banner when the Hulk is ...

He spoke in the 2008 movie The Incredible Hulk Leave me alone Source

It relates to what Black Widow tells Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron in order to get him to come back to himself, to calm down and go back to being Bruce Banner. From the question What's that “Sun’s getting real low…” lullaby thing to calm down the Hulk? There is nothing specific about the words. They are just a trigger phrase/word to get Hulk's ...

It's possible but it's more likely because Matt Damon and Chris Hemsworth are friends. Kevin Feige explained... “There was an idea in the script phase. I don’t remember if it was our writer, Eric Pearson’s or if it was Taika [Waititi]’s or if it was our executive producer, Brad Winderbaum to bring the audience up to speed on the fact that everybody ...

Surtur tells him that because he'd be the one that will initiate the Ragnarok. Near the end, you can see that Thor wasn't able to kill Hela, so, in order to do that, he asks Loki to put the Surtur's crown in the eternal flame, so Surtur can destroy Asgard along with Hela. Thor: Asgard's not a place, it's a people. This was never about stopping Ragnarok.....


26

She was "imprisoned" ...although where or how is not stated. Odin says: Her violent appetites grew beyond my control. I couldn’t stop her, so I imprisoned her. Locked her away. She draws her strength from Asgard...and once she gets there, her powers will be limitless. The implication is that she was imprisoned by Odin's magic in some fashion which, on ...


24

She did not have it. This is the most likely reason because we don't actually see much of Odin's spear but the times we do, we see Thor is seen wielding it. According to Cinematic Wiki When Hela came to take the throne of Asgard, Thor had taken the spear, and briefly used it in a duel before dropping it. As he seems to have left it after awakening his ...

Odin didn't remove Thor's power. He removed Thor's ability to channel his power through Mjolnir. In the original Thor, Odin simply removes the hammer from Thor's hand. He then puts an enchantment on it that only the "worthy" can wield the hammer. Thor does not know that he can use his power without the hammer as evident his conversation with Odin in Thor: ...

We know that Thanos asked the dwarves to make the Gauntlet, not that he designed it. The Infinity Stones are common knowledge for powerful people like Odin. So it is possible that someone invented the concept the Gauntlet to harness the power of the Stones, but Thanos was the (first?) one to really have it made. It is shown in movies (for example ...

It has not been officially confirmed but the inference is that it's Thanos in his quest for the Infinity Stones...which will lead into the Avengers: Infinity War movie. As Thor and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) relish in their victory, a giant spaceship with the very clear design and silhouette of Thanos looms overwhelmingly large, dwarfing Thor and Loki’s ship. ...

There's no canon answer to this that I'm aware of - and having one of the main Avengers rendered powerless for the upcoming fight with the biggest, baddest threat they have faced thus far probably isn't an appealing idea to the guys writing Infinity War, however the explanation that Asgard is a people not a place seems to provide a decent explanation for him ...

No, it was always intended to be lighter. Per producer Brad Winderbaum: “There were certain things that Kevin [Feige] wanted… [He] definitely wanted [to bring out] the comedic side of Chris, who’s an awesome comedy actor. And [he also wanted] a big fun space epic that’s not married to Earth. Just a fun adventure film that has big stakes, but also has a ...

Signs point to Thor wielding an axe, likely Jarnbjorn or Stormbreaker. In the comics, Jarnbjorn is the axe wielded by Thor before he received Mjolnir. Later, when he became unworthy of Mjolnir, he once again picked up Jarnbjorn. Right now, our best evidence of this comes in two images. The first is a shot from the first Infinity War trailer. Thor appears ...

Strange is watching over the Earth. He is not actively monitoring the beings / realm. He never said he is monitoring all 9 realms. His exact lines were So, I keep a watch list of individuals and beings from other realms that may be a threat to this world. Your adopted brother, Loki, is one of these beings. He did not care what Loki was doing to ...

Surtur will not be under Loki's mind control. The army of the dead whom Hela resurrected were her loyal allies from her past and were under her control before their death. Fenris wolf, the loyal pet of Hela was also brought to life along with them. It is clear from her dialogues and the pictures on the ceilings before she resurrects them. We can see the ...

The director explained here With the green-skinned alter ego of the Avenger traditionally not known as a man of many words, the choice to give Hulk an increased use of vocabulary has surprised quite a few people. And according to Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, the choice was a deliberate.. "I was always fascinated by the duality of Hulk and ...

Those enchantments of only a worthy person for holding the hammer were only made in the first Thor movie when Thor was banished at Earth. There were no enchantments on it before that. Hela's power was equal to Odin's before she was imprisoned. It was Odin's power that kept her away from the Asgard. Given her past history, she is very powerful. Odin did ...

I found this in ScreenRant The Russo brothers have offered a simple solution. "Prior to the start of that scene, escape ships were deployed for Asgardians," Joe Russo explained, "including Valkyrie." He refused to shed any light on the ultimate fate of Korg, but at least this comment suggested Asgardians were able to launch escape pods. It's worth noting, ...

In the issue Incredible Hulk #142, we find the first appearance of Valkyire. So, yes, you are right about this being an easter-egg. As the question has been raised about the first appearance based on some statement on Wikipedia, The character first appeared in The Avengers #83 (December 1970) and has become a mainstay of the superhero team known as the ...

Since the movie is not the same as the comics, I'm afraid there is no official answer to this question, as this is not explained in the movie itself. However, using some common sense and knowledge of the Marvel universe, I believe we can reach a good enough guess. What we see in the movie as Odin "fading away into the wind" is actually Odin transforming ...

The answer is in the words of Thor himself: "Oh, no! Thor's in a cage. How did this happen?" Well, sometimes you have to get captured just to get a straight answer out of somebody. - Source He is having visions of Asgard's destruction : Because I've been having these terrible dreams of late. Asgard up in flames, falling to ruins. And you, ...

She doesn't have the right tools Using the Infinity Stones without great care...doesn't have the best track record. Remember Red Skull? He messed with the Tesseract and got sent to Voromir, there to be enslaved to the Soul Stone for who knows how long. For that matter, remember when Iron Man took the Mind Stone home and ended up with a robot army? Hela ...


11

But how is Hela worthy of it? She has evil intentions and wants to destroy Asgard. Because when Odin died, the enchantment on the hammer no longer existed. We first see Odin put the famous enchantment on Thor's hammer near the beginning of Thor.. At that time, Odin had striped Thor of all his power and imbued the hammer with it. From there, he added the ...
