In addition to the effects of the super-serum that gave him his abilities, at the time in question Cap is holding Mjolnir. It is well established in the comics and MCU that the wielder of Mjolnir gains the power of Thor. Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor. Thor, The enchantment placed on Mjolnir. ...

Although the haircut scene doesn't affect the movie's plot and is played for laughs, it also works as part of the movie's symbolism. Over the course of Ragnarok, Thor is stripped of almost all the accoutrements we associate with Thor. He loses his father, his hammer, many of his friends, half of his cape, his freedom, and then his hair. (While his hair is ...

The post-credits scene wasn't filmed until production had already completed and so the various actors had already moved onto new roles. Chris Evans had a role in Snowpiercer in which he needed a beard. As this was a quick scene and he was currently filming for Snowpiercer a prosthetic was fitted for Chris. This meant he couldn't really eat and is also why he ...

Excalibur #58 (1992) fits the bill, your villain being Alchemy. From ComicVine: Trouble on both sides! With both the Crazy Gang and the trolls that kidnapped Alchemy on the loose, can even the combined strength of Excalibur and the X-Men come out on top? As revealed in the previous issue, Alchemy was in with the trolls who used his mother as leverage ...

No. The main part that I think you are misunderstanding is that her powers were derived from a power source (the warp drive) made by the Tesseract, but not the Tesseract itself or even the Space Stone, just a source of power made by the Space Stone. This is kinda similar to how the Maximoff twins gain their powers from Loki's scepter but still retain them ...

He doesn't say "Elmonzo", he says "Almanzo" which would indicate that his wife is likely a fan of the Little House on the Prairie books in which Almanzo Wilder was a major character. The joke here is (I assume) that in The Long Winter, Almanzo and a character called Cap Garland go on an adventure together. Two of her young neighbors, Almanzo Wilder and ...

Iron Man uses his nanotech to steal the stones, and if you watch carefully when Tony Stark's hand comes around to reveal he has the stones, the nanotech in his suit is still forming the gauntlet itself and moving the stones into the right positions. Once they are located in the correct spots, the electricity starts to spark as you expected and Tony wastes ...

This Thanos had never used the stones before, and didn't know what to expect Dave's answer covers why Thanos didn't notice Tony sparking. But it doesn't explain why he missed the lack of pain on his own hand. But this Thanos is from 2014, and had never seen the fully complete Gauntlet before. He didn't know to expect excruciating pain upon activating it. ...

You're making a few faulty assumptions/comparisons in this question which is why this looks to be confusing you. Quill might have only been able to hold the Power Stone for as long as he did because he is half Celestial but note here that he is touching the raw Stone whereas Tony has a protective shield between him and the Stone. Also note that as far as I ...

Apparently it was just because Chris didn't like wearing the wig anymore and it just took too long to get right as Eric Pearson has said in the below interview: "When I arrived, there were certain things they had already decided," Pearson told CBR. "'We’re going to break the hammer.. Another one was, 'We’re going to cut the hair.' I said, 'Why?' '...

The snap is just the trigger to have the stones carry out your will, whatever it may be. Thanos wanted to destroy half of all life so that's what happened. Stark wanted to destroy Thanos' invasion force which included their ships and technology so that is what happened.

The wording of the enchantment placed on Mjölnir in the first Thor movie is: Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor. Which implies that Captain America should have all the powers of Thor as the God of Thunder.

How do you know his actions didn't affect her? Last we see of Gamora is during the battle where she has a little spat with Quill, after that we don't see her. For all we know she does actually survive the battle and Tony's snap. Tony might have excluded her anyway Gamora was seen fighting for the good guys on the field in the battle and Tony at least ...

I want to say the Wasp, because this shirt seems Avengers-themed and the Wasp was a founding member of the Avengers. For what it's worth, this Wasp wallet has almost the same logo, and is apparently officially licensed: This product is handcrafted in the USA by Buckle-Down, Inc. and is Officially Licensed by Marvel Comics.

It's possible that it was easier for him than that. In the Dr. Strange movie, the Ancient One is unable to look into the future farther than her death. So possibly in Infinity War, Strange looks at 14 million sequences leading up to the Snap and only some of them result in him popping back into existence 5 years later. In other words, he could tell which ...

What's Tony got to do with anything? Neither did Thanos know half the people in the Universe. In both Infinity War and Endgame it's implied that the stones are displaying some level of sentience in carrying out complex implementations of simple directives ("Kill half of everybody," "Kill all the bad guys") and that their awareness of the current state of ...

"...wiped my face with a planet" means exactly what it says, from when Thanos brought a planet (actually one of Titan's moons1) down on Tony during their battle in Avengers: Infinity War. As mentioned by @systemexit in a comment below it could also be a play on the American idiom cleaned one's clock meaning "to trounce one’s opponents". Thanos won (even if ...

Thanos was presumably trying to be hidden in the background until he was ready to reveal himself so he would face less opposition. Thor seems to twig onto the fact that someone is working in the background for this purpose. Thor: The Mind Stone is the fourth of the Infinity Stones to show up in the last few years. It's not a coincidence. Someone has been ...


63

Because they don't know exactly where the stone is. Rhodey states they will wait for Quill to lead them to the Power Stone. This indicates they don't actually know where on Morag it actually is and so waiting saves them searching the whole planet themselves. Once Quill is knocked out, Nebula takes a tool from him to use to open the crypt/temple/whatever ...

Spider-Man does not grab the hammer in flight. He webs it as it flies by, and it pulls him along. He isn't physically trying to wield it (by grabbing the handle). It can be seen quickly here: Without an actual screen cap from the movie, I present you with this video.

In universe The arc reactor and the suit has just undergone a massive energy surge from the power of the Infinity Stones, even shielding Tony from them somewhat. It is highly likely that it was damaged beyond repair because of this and so also "died" at a similar time to Tony. Alternatively it could be possible that as the suit is monitoring Tony's health, ...

The Snap just performs the wielder’s will which is made quite clear over the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. It’s made the most clear when Tony asks Smart Hulk what to do with his Snap. Tony: You remember... everyone Thanos snapped away five years ago and just bringing them back to now, today. Don't change anything from the last ...

Because that was never the plan The plan was actually to get the Gauntlet and the Infinity Stones to the quantum tunnel in the van and use that to put the Stones back into their respective timelines. The plan only changed for the Tony snap when Thanos destroyed the van and Tony had to improvise. HAWKEYE: Cap, what do you want me to do with this damn ...

She doesn't think he's worthless. She just acts that way in Doctor Strange because that is pretty much standard for the "Eastern martial arts teacher" trope. In the western teacher trope, the teacher searches out and courts brilliant but reluctant students, and bends over backwards to extract their greatness, in a game of Pygmalion: like Robin Williams ...

The only mistake Danvers makes is assuming this is a planet that knows about aliens, based on the fact that they're clearly not a stone age level society. Most civilizations will spend hundreds of thousands of years at stone age level technology, and hundreds of thousands of years at the level of knowing about aliens (at least in the MCU where aliens exist)....


58

It appears to be part of Strange’s training and his journey to become who he is supposed to for The Ancient One to treat him as she does in Doctor Strange. Like with what Strange does in Avengers: Infinity War she has looked into his possible futures. The Ancient One: Do you wonder what I see in your future? Doctor Strange: No. Yes. The ...

I wondered this myself and I think it is probably referencing Tony creating the Mk I Iron Man suit way back in Iron Man from 2008. That is where it all started and this is essentially where it all ends. Compare the sounds here, or at least until the Endgame video is taken down. The Russo ...

Gungnir appears to have been left in the throne room in Asgard during Thor: Ragnarok when Ragnarok happens and Surtur destroys Asgard as I explain here. The last we see of it is when Hela disarms Thor. It may be obvious to some but it's also worth noting that your familiarity with a specific weapon matters a lot and even more so when switching between ...

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have answered this during an interview with Collider. In short it appears to have been because they wanted a reference more specific to Danvers' past and something that would line up with her more specifically than Star Wars. During a recent press day for Captain Marvel, I got the chance to sit down with directing duo Anna Boden ...
