He snapped! The clue lies in the way how the Avengers found out where Thanos was in Avenger: Endgame. Thanos used all the six stones twice in Avengers: Infinity War, second time during the snap, and the first time minutes before the snap while he was trying to block Stormbreaker. RHODEY: That's cute, Thanos has a retirement plan. STEVE: So where ...

Obidiah’s plan was always “a new world order” as he said. Remember he left a resignation letter with Tony before taking his heart-reactor. That was the alibi. Later, in a power suit he was in the arc reactor room when the battle began, and they cracked the containment glass. The reactor started to overload. Tony reminded Stane that “you know when that ...

He used the Infinity Gauntlet with the Infinity Stones in it to destroy the Stones. Not only is this the way he uses to use all the Stones at once but we have physical evidence that this was the case. When the Avengers go to Titan II in hunt for Thanos after they detect the Stones are used again we see the toll it has taken on Thanos. We see now, his left ...

I think you've fundamentally misunderstood the argument between the Ancient One and Bruce Banner. When the Ancient one shows the effect of removing a stone from the timeline, there are 2 separate branches of time created - Main Timeline continues as normal once the Avengers return to it, and the Alternate Timeline starts off from when the stone was removed. ...

Passage of Time is not a Problem when one is a Time Traveler As asked, the question operates under the impression that how much time passes in the alternate timelines while each Stone is absent is relevant. One cannot forget that the Stones are being returned by a time traveler. No significant time needs to pass in any given timeline's Stone-less state. ...

That would very much depend on how you define “destroy”. Thanos in Avengers: Endgame reduces the Infinity Stones to atoms by using their power against themselves. Natasha Romanonff: Where are the Stones? Thanos: Gone. Reduced to atoms. Avengers: Endgame However, right after that he states he destroyed them this way. Bruce Banner: You used ...

If Thanos was unable to destroy them when he had the power of all of them available, then there isn't likely any greater power available in the universe to destroy them. Note that according to the directors Thanos did not manage to destroy the stones: ...according to the Russos, the Infinity Stones aren't actually lost: "Thanos only reduced the stones to ...

The Winter Soldier crashed their car into a fence,then punched Howard in the head twice,breaking his skull in half and his brain fall out,then the Winter Soldier went around and strangled his mom,crushing her throats and shooting the Security Camera.

A few things really: Corvus Glaive is one of the Children of Thanos, he is a powerful individual. For example, he has good combat skills being able to somewhat go hand to hand against Cap. He also seems to have a good regeneration ability considering he recovers from his stab wound pretty quickly. The element of surprise. This is a massive point and one ...

They were possibly private military contractors and not S.H.I.E.L.D agents In Season 4: Episode 22 "World's End", after everything that happened with Aida and the Framework, Fitz decided to turn himself in as Mack tells everyone that the authorities were coming for them. Mack: We picked up radio chatter on the Zephyr. The good news is, is that Talbot is ...

Well, first off, SPOILERS!!!, but all is revealed later in season 5 anyway. Enoch is an alien called a "Chronicom", as are his team (I believe - and we come across other Chronicoms later, both friendly and not). They keep an eye on Earth and, yes, can interfere in order to prevent an extinction-level event, because that event also disrupts the wider galaxy ...

In Fight or Flight Marlena Olin played by Teri Reeves was part of the Pilgrim's hit squad sent in to kill Frank and recover Rachel, who Frank was using as bait. Because Frank had planned and set up in the room adjacent to his own, the hit squad was reverse-ambushed and Frank shot Marlena in the knee, taking her captive. Later in Trouble the Water they were ...

It could have very well been CGI. As mentioned by the VFX technician involved in Captain Marvel, Chris Townsend in his interview with the Huffington Post There are about over 100 shots of the cat in the film, 70 or 80 of them are CG. So convincing was the CGI that, [according to Townsend], even the movie's directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck couldn't ...

Because the van was likely "sold" to Scott as the founder of X-Con Security Consultants considering it was their property now. You can see the logo for X-Con on the side of the van when Scott goes into the Quantum Tunnel at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp and it's also visible when Scott goes up to Avengers HQ in Avengers: Endgame as we see in the security ...

After the damage, Agent Coulson took it to the Theta Protocol Facility and began to repair it in case there will be an emergency. Reference: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 2.

The goal of the mission was to get the Tesseract, as they were trying to beat Yon-Rogg and Starforce there, they were presumably trying to be in and out as fast as possible. They head straight for the Tesseract and grab it. It is only at that point that they realise they aren’t alone and Talos starts his call. At this point they are now too distracted with ...

In the MCU the largest “object” we’ve seen a Flerken swallow was when Goose swallowed the 4 or 5 Kree soldiers all at the same time. In fact the only other instance of a Flerken swallowing something was Goose with the Tesseract which is a lot smaller. I assume the object has to get through the Flerken's throat. Why? ...

In the MCU we don’t know, we have very little information on Goose and Flerkens in general. What we do know is that Wendy Lawson, aka Mar-Vell, had Goose with her. She seems to be somewhat knowledgable of the animal and knows more about her than the others, such as Goose taking to Carol. Wendy Lawson: Goose likes you. She doesn't typically take to people....

Unknown where exactly he got it from but the Skrulls has been on Earth for a while at this point. To the point where this one in particular had managed to slip in alongside Fury as Coulson without anyone else noticing. It’s not implausible for the Skrull to have gotten a pistol from any number of sources: a store, stolen from someone, pinched off another ...

Playing the scene below at 0,25 speed, I'm not entirely sure Skrull-Coulson actually made that weapon. He seems to take it out of his jacket, sure, but as we didn't have eyes on him all the time he could as well have grabbed it from, say, the glove compartment; fits with the person he's impersonating, to be prepared to fire during a chase. If there's ...

The arc reactor in his body is the one that is powering the suit. He doesn’t need an extra one when that is already doing the job. The one in his body is only essentially an electromagnet and doesn’t use up much power so there is a lot left available to use to power his suits if needed. This is made somewhat explicit it Tony’s initial escape. Yinsen: ...

The worthiness enchantment on Mjolnir was put on it by Odin, and Odin died before Stormbreaker was forged, so without the worthiness enchantment anyone could lift Stormbreaker.

A few reasons come to mind and it was probably somewhat of a combination of all of them but we never get an explicit answer to this. Surtur would have been monitoring Asgard Surtur cannot die until he fulfils his destiny of Ragnarok and destroying Asgard. It seems likely that since this was his ultimate destiny he would have been waiting for his chance to ...

I assume Surtur was being held at bay by Odin himself, and Surtur realized Odin wasn’t keeping him at bay anymore if he was alive again (although still lacking eternal flame\full power). Then he probably looked around the Realms, saw them in chaos, with no Odinforce energy emulating from Asgard, or even military action from Asgard. He put it all together ...

J.A.R.V.I.S. in the MCU is an artificial intelligence that stands for Just A Rather Very Intelligent System. However, this is a handy acronym as J.A.R.V.I.S. is named after Edwin Jarvis a butler for the Stark family and father figure for Tony. We don't see much of Jarvis in the MCU films, although he does appear in Agent Carter, and only get a glimpse of him ...

In universe there are two explanations I can think of with the first being the most likely. He picked it up When Thanos is fighting with Thor, Thor throws Thanos’ sword away, the camera spins around a bit before Thanos sends Thor flying so it’s not exactly clear where he lands. It’s very possible that Thor lands near the sword. After being hit by Mjolnir ...

In the 1981 cartoon Spiderman, Peter was shown using under arm web wings much like a "gilder suit" to slow his descent down. This was in a battle with a radioactively powered Sand Man. I was looking for a clip of it, but all I could find was a fan-made condensed episode on Youtube. Full Disclosure: The clips do have where Sand Man throws him off the roof of ...

It seems unlikely that the Nova Corps would be unaware of what Thanos was doing across the galaxy seeing as they appear to have been keeping tabs on him somewhat. Corpsman Dey: Gamora. Surgically modified and trained as a living weapon. The adopted daughter of the Mad Titan, Thanos. Recently, Thanos lent her and her sister Nebula out to Ronan, which leads ...

Ok let's start with Mantis’s creator's own words from Inverse: “That character has nothing to do with Mantis,” he said. “I will say that I liked the film quite a bit overall, they’re doing good stuff and I enjoyed my night at the movies so long as I turned my brain off to the fact that that’s not Mantis up there. I really don’t know why you would ...

After having a look around and flicking through various books I have found that this is answered in Marvel's Captain Marvel: The Art Of The Movie. In it Andy Park says that because her uniform is that of a Starforce member and a soldier it didn't make sense to have the sash. He relates that it would be very impractical and that there would have to be a story ...

The short answer here is because Carol Danvers, as Captain Marvel, has the ability to fly and breathe in space. This first came about in Uncanny X-Men Vol. 1 Issue 164 when she transforms into Binary and we see her blast out of a space ship into outer space without anything protecting her face. Click image to enlarge. She then mostly keeps that power, we ...

The Answer is: Of Course, YES Thor, as the god of thunder, isn't dependent on his mighty hammer - Mjölnir. Thor has bunch of powers duo to Mjölnir, but he can still control weather, manipulate lightning and etc. Jason Aaron's Unworthy Thor run showed Thor can still do it. In his fellow times, when he didn't have mjolnir, he was still able to use his godly ...

She knocks the Infinity Gauntlet over and off of its podium because it is fake, as she says when she does it. Hela walks towards the Infinity Gauntlet. Hela: Fake. Hela KNOCKS the gauntlet off its pedestal. Hela (cont'd): Most of the stuff in here is fake. Thor: Ragnarok Taika Waititi, the director for Thor: Ragnarok, explains in an ...
