The film's writers addressed this point in an interview with HuffPo. In brief, Hawkeye kept paying for the phone and had it on charge because turning it off and cancelling the billing would be tantamount to admitting (to himself) that his wife was dead and gone for good. Markus suggested Hawkeye was keeping the service running and cellphone charged in “the ...

You've got a misunderstanding of how the Sacred Timeline works and it wasn't really until the last episode that I realised this myself. The Sacred Timeline actually consists of all the universes in the multiverse squashed down together into the same timeline, so the overall flow of time is the same. However, this still allows for differences in appearance ...

In addition to Valorum's answer, it's actually quite common that people don't review their bills and what they're paying for. I remember my grandfather was still paying for a telephone "rental" fee for his landline phone (the physical unit), even though he owned all the phones in his house. This lady had the same problem Many older people, ...

I believe you're going to have to wait until something else in Phase 4 or season 2 of Loki itself for a definitive answer. At the moment though we have two conflicting pieces of information from Marvel themselves so it seems it isn't finalised yet. Farahani, the production designer, has stated that Loki was actually sent to a different timeline. This would ...

In short this is just a joke and you're not meant to think too heavily about this. Kate Herron, the director, has spoken about the size of the paper pile and suggested they tried to make it relatively accurate but at the end of the day you can't get it perfect. She even forewarns of debate over the size of the pile knowing that it isn't entirely accurate. ...

I don't think Thor's showings against Loki in the first Thor and Avengers movies accurately reflect how they compare in strength, as Thor essentially stated in Thor: The Dark World that he was holding back in those fights. You should know that when we fought each other in the past, I did so with a glimmer of hope that my brother was still in there somewhere....

In an interview with Fandom Kate Herron, the director of Loki season 1, explained about the Void birds and their name as Narvas based on the name of show's head of production design, Kasra Farahani's daughter Narva. I also love those little Void turkeys. They’re called Narvas, because Kasra pitched the idea of them, so we named them after his daughter, ...

Just remember the story „he who remains“ tells Loki: he is from the year 3’100, from the far future (at least for Loki). I assume he has a kind of computer based library that has all the information about HIS universe in it. So: he simply lets the TVA prune anything that would lead to another universe with an alternate version of himself that could start the ...

I think they are pure symbiote, just in the form of a dragon, like the Ghost Rider comic says. In several other comics, in this "King in Black" arc we see dragons completely bisected, and otherwise exploded like they are made of symbiote goop. We see many times a symbiote pulled aways from people, but (with the possible exception of the Miles ...

I think: the TVA has the power to travel all across time, yet the organization’s technology is very unassuming. The organizations odd blend of retro and future tech was described by Kate Herron, the director, as being so because it's tech is outside of time: Maybe it doesn't look super futuristic, because they aren't necessarily in the future and they aren'...

Loki can shapeshift. How can Loki have alternate physical forms? It's pretty simple and straight-forward. They're a shapeshifter. They can shapeshift with their magic. If Loki wants to be a girl, they can turn themselves into a girl. If they want to be an alligator, they can turn themselves into an alligator. We can see that Loki is capable of this in Thor: ...

TL;DR: They either don't have any undercover names or just go by their anglicised versions of their "real" names. However, nothing definitive is given for them except Nat. We know, at least, that Nat was still Nat (presumably short for Natasha) as at the start of the film we see a her riding her bike through the streets and a young girl calls out ...

Since Laura was dusted within a few yards of the Barton residence, she would have reappeared in the same place. If her phone had WiFi calling, and her phone snapped back into existence with her, it would have immediately reconnected to the home wireless network. Even if her wireless plan had been cancelled, unless Clint had changed the password on his home ...

It doesn't. Refusing to police the timeline does. To answer your question directly, killing He Who Remains changes nothing about the timeline as it exists at that moment. The problem is that the TVA polices and prunes the timeline so that it doesn't branch and create new, alternate timelines. The show makes it clear that the universe is chock full of ...

Let me add something to what TheLethalCarrot said. From his vantage point in the future/outside of time/whatever, He Who Remains dictated the flow of the Sacred Timeline. Using the TVA, he had every "branch" of the Sacred Timeline which wasn't to his liking reset and pruned - i.e. effectively destroyed. It seems reasonable to me to assume that, in ...

The Citadel at the End of Time, where He Who Remains lives, really exists outside of time. As such it isn’t in the future or the past in relation to the main timelines and so time travel doesn’t really make sense. The Endgame explanation for time travel simply isn’t relevant here. It’s also worth highlighting the below quote from the intro quotes in the last ...

While the TVA exists in a region separate from the Sacred Timeline, that region itself came into existence as a result of the actions of He Who Remains, within the timeline-bound multiverse. After Sylvie kills Nathaniel Richards (He Who Remains) the entire timeline is freed from stabilizing control and history returns to its previously chaotic form, ...

Specifically with regard to the guards with the helmets, when they don't even slow down in their evacuation. Granted, they wouldn't have been being actively controlled at that time, but anyone who'd been under mind control previously would probably have at least paused at that point.
