Sonic the Hedgehog 2 picture

Question: Why did Knuckles say "wait, that wasn't the deal" after noticing Robotnik trying to steal the master emerald?

Answer: Because Robotnik was betraying him. Dr. Robotnik promised to help Knuckles get the Master Emerald, so they could use it to defeat Sonic. But Robotnik was using him all along because he wanted the Master Emerald for himself... he never actually cared about Knuckles and never intended to help him get the Emerald. Thus, Knuckles is shocked and says that Robotnik taking the Emerald for himself was not part of their deal.

Question: Has it ever been established that Gotham City is some sort of separate district similar to Washington D.C.? In the Dark Knight films it was pointed out that the license plates said "Gotham" on them rather than whatever State Gotham is located in. Here, we see Edward's drivers licenses and they also say "Gotham" on them, rather than a State name. Also, has there ever been a distinction made between "Gotham" and "Gotham City"? Because why wouldn't the licenses have the word "City" too?


Answer: In "The Dark Knight," we see Gotham State Police setting up barriers. In short, Gotham has never been shown to be anything akin to the District of Columbia, probably because Gotham is never meant to be the capital of the country.

Answer: It's also been referred to as its own separate state. The city, county and state of Gotham.

Answer: Gotham City is in Gotham County, New Jersey.

Not always. In some comics or shows it's in New York, Chicago, or Connecticut. So the question remains, has there ever been a version where it's a separate district or city state?

Thor: Love and Thunder picture

Question: I tried to read up on what kind of accent Russell Crowe was doing, I assumed it was a Greek accent. But I don't know the accent well enough to know if it come across authentic or sounding like a stereotype. How realistic is his accent? Does it sound natural to someone who is Greek? At times, it sounded like someone does a bad Italian accent by pretending to be Mario.


Answer: I can't say how authentic Crowe's accent was, but to me it sounded like an Aussie Greek accent. There were some popular Greek comedy characters on Aussie TV in the 80s when Crowe started acting. Some were caricatures, and some exaggerating their own ethnic backgrounds, and they were generally good natured portrayals. Crowe being a New Zealander who worked in Australia, may have been influenced by them.

Question: If the Vishanti bracelets stop prisoners from using their powers how was America able to punch through her cage?


Answer: This suggests her powers are stronger than the bracelets.


Or that the bracelets may only be able to constrain powers from Earth-838, and don't work as well on people from other earths.

Uncharted picture

Question: How did Jo and her mercenaries know what cove to go to in the Philippines if Drake had just discovered it using the crosses that Chloe had brought with her from the helicopter? If Chloe didn't know about using the crosses and was faked out by the false coordinates then wouldn't we assume the mercenaries hadn't found the location yet either?

Answer: Jo and her mercenaries were at the wrong island, It's when they saw Drake go past them in a speed boat, and not to the island they were on, that's when they realised they had been tricked.

The Adam Project picture

Question: Do the events of the movie alter the timeline to where Adam is no longer suspended? I ask this because at the end of the movie, Adam and his mom have the same beat-for-beat conversation of his mom's files, but instead of Adam suggesting he should go to his room and think about what he's done, he says he's going to be late for school.

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: Maybe the father prepared him better knowing he's going to die.

Question: When we first see Alan Grant, he and his team are excavating old dinosaur bones. Given that this is a time when Dinosaurs roam freely on earth, why is he even bothering? He could learn far more from simply studying a live dinosaur than its bones. And secondly, given that dinosaurs are alive and free, who is gonna have the slightest interest in bones that are millions of years old. I considered this a goof, but I'm opened to any explanations.

Gavin Jackson

Answer: The live dinosaurs are genetically tweaked recreations, they're not the "pure" dinosaurs of the past, which would still be of great interest. Plus just like any other archaeology or historical study, there's always more to be learned about the past, and a great many people are interested in what the past has to teach us.

Answer: Agree with the other answer but would add that while to date about 1000 species of dinosaurs have been identified, it is believed there are at least 1,000 more types that existed and are still to be discovered and studied. Only a tiny fraction of the known species were cloned by In-Gen and Biosyn, and, as noted in the other answer, they are not genetically pure. That would be why palaeontologists like Alan Grant continue digging.

Answer: The existing answers are good. In the movie, Alan Grant actually asked, "Why do we dig?" and answered his question, "Because paleontology is science [fossil animals and plants], and science is about the truth. And there is truth in these rocks." [00:20:52].
