Question: Was the scene where Gargamel is being held in jail filmed in an actual jail?

Question: Where did the mobile vehicle suddenly come from on the back of the Dallas?

Answer: When Ryan goes to the shipyard, Skip tells him "We can get it anywhere in the world in 24 hours." The powers that be knew they would be needing it for the fake rescue, so had it sent to the Dallas which they had planned to meet the Soviet ship.

Question: How did Hanna find out about Michael? I was really confused on that part.

Answer: Richie, the brother of Vincent's informant Albert, was a cell mate of Michael. They happened to recently run into each other on the street and caught up. When Richie asked what Michael was up to lately, he kept insisting that he had nothing going on. Richie thought this was odd because Michael was known to him as an adrenaline junkie. Richie believed that Michael, who he knew in prison as "Slick", was part of the armored car heist he recently heard about. He is giving this information to Vincent because he wants the police to raid a rival car theft ring, eliminating his competition. The information he gives seems flimsy to Vincent until he hears the nickname "Slick", a name a witness heard during the armored car heist.

Question: How could Jenna not be pregnant at the time that the blackmail started?

Question: Could Kimball really survive that fall at the dam? It looks impossible.

Answer: From the height shown, it would be virtually impossible to survive the fall. Even if someone managed to survive, their body would be horribly damaged.

Question: Why does Chiffon keep disappearing every time Wilbur turns into a dog?

Answer: I assume this is merely a movie plot device so that the audience does not get confused when Wilbur is in his dog form or that the other characters are wondering why there are suddenly two identical dogs.

Question: If Amazons are immortal and never age then how can Diana grow up there?

Rob245

Answer: They may never grow old, but they are not immortal since we see some die.

Answer: It would be more accurate to say they grow to a certain age then stop aging. Similar to the elves in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.

Answer: Thank you both.

Question: Why was George Merkert fired? How was he supposed to know Gus was a criminal? If Hank survived, would he have been fired?

MikeH

Answer: Part of reason for the firing was because George considered Gus a personal friend and ignored Hank's suspicions of Gus' involvement in the meth business. Even after questioning Gus, he still ignored Hank when Hank try's to tell him Gus is lying.

Bishop73

Answer: The DEA needed a scapegoat to throw under the bus as Gus made them look bad being right under their nose and George was the agent in charge so took the fall. And yes, had Hank not been killed he too would most likely have been fired.

Question: Why would the bullies even do what Zack tells them to do? They could easily beat him.

MikeH

Answer: They might be able to beat him in a fight, but Zack is by far the most popular boy on campus. Fighting him would make them social outcasts. In addition, it is a movie cliche to show bullies exposed as cowards when they are directly confronted by someone with confidence.

Question: Why would Brad go to jail for refusing to rat Donnie out? Doesn't he have the right to remain silent?

MikeH

Answer: If you are referring to a person's Miranda Rights, it does not give someone the right to remain silent indefinitely or to conceal a crime. It is a notification police give to criminal suspects who are in custody, advising them of their right to refuse to answer questions or provide information to law enforcement or other officials during an interrogation. A person can also invoke their Fifth Amendment right while on trial, but that also does not protect them from being convicted of a crime.

Question: Is this the last movie in the Infinity Saga? I always thought Endgame was, but apparently I was wrong. Wouldn't it make more sense for Endgame to be?

MikeH

Answer: All MCU movies from Phase 1 through Phase 3 are considered to be in the Infinity Saga. Avengers: Endgame is considered to be the climax, while this film is considered to be the epilogue.

Question: What happened to Candace and her baby at the end?

Answer: Candace is shot and killed by Tom. Candace's child is not harmed. The real-life inspiration for Candace, Lisa Lambert, was similarly murdered along with Brandon Teena (and another victim, Philip DeVine whom the film omits) with the killers leaving her toddler unharmed.

Question: Is it just me or is Hermione's hair shorter in this movie?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: It's a little shorter and curlier. The bangs are also a little different. It's hardly surprising since a few months have passed from the end of the school year in HP2 and the start of HP3, just before the new school year begins. All the younger characters have changing hairstyles throughout the series.

Question: What happened to Loki? Does this mean he's now alive?

MikeH

Answer: The Loki from the original timeline is dead, but the 2013 Loki that is imprisoned on Asgard is presumably alive and well, and the 2012 Loki that escaped with the Tesseract is alive and supposedly, this version of the character will be the focus of his own upcoming Disney+ series.

Phaneron Premium member

Answer: The Loki who escaped is in a different timeline, so he will not encounter the "main" versions of the characters. This version of Loki will appear in the new series.

Question: Does Beetlejuice kill the young Girl Scout?

Answer: I think you're thinking of the musical, there's no Girl Scout in the movie. As for the musical, after the girl plays up her heart condition and how a minor shock to her system could kill her, she ironically survives her encounter with Beetlejuice just fine.

Question: How did Frank know Carl wouldn't open his wallet?

MikeH

Question: Would Karen have died if she went into the store?

MikeH

Answer: The film leaves it ambiguous...it can be interpreted either way. She may have simply been being paranoid, but the circumstances, and Jimmy's behavior, were very suspicious.
