Not very WTF at all... - 12/12/2013 5:53:01 PM

I seriously think whoever rights these articles for you isn't a comic book fan, or indeed, doesn't watch the movies very closely. The credit sting in Thor TDW.... Firstly, the canister does not contain the Aether. If you know what Gardians of the Galaxy is about and who they are facing, the whole Collector thing makes perfect sense. I don't want to give away any spoilers to people who don't know the comics, but all this is tied together very easily by a single plot point.

I'd think that the bigger WTF moment from the movie would be from the previous 'Odin' scene towards the end. That's made far more people wonder WTF and where are they going with it then the credit sting.

Okay... The whole W.H.O Doctor thing with Capadli isn't wtf in the slightest. Its just a massive coincidence. You have to remember he would have been cast in the role at least a year before the film was finished, so it was a long time before we even knew Matt Smith would be leaving at they'd have to find a new Doctor.

Superman and Zod, again not WTF. Kal is brand new to the role of being the Icon that is Superman. Given the films darker tone it was his 'never again' moment.

I wonder where poor old Trevor Slattery is in all this. His character reveal in iron man 3 was so WTF that someone in my theatre almost choked on their popcorn!

Good point. That was a heck of a huge WTF moment with everyone expecting The Mandarin to be.. well, The Mandarin. Plus, you had Stark blowing up his suits and everything after that too. Those were pretty big WTF moments also.

The Alice Eve stripping thing was unnecessary, sure, but I really don't know why it bothered people so much.

Hi GrizBe,

Actually, it IS the Aether. We asked Kevin Feige and he said that the Aether is also an Infinity Stone. It's in our spoiler podcast.

Ohh.. okay, I apologise for that. I was going off the comics and what we actually see in the movies. There been zero mention in them of the Aether being an Infinity Stone/Gem. Asked around my friends who run a local comic book store too, seems that nugget about it suddenly being an infinity gem hasn't been widely broadcast yet.

It's something they've done for the MCU that I actually think is wildly smart: their McGuffins are building to one mega-McGuffin because the Tesseract and Aether are both infinity stones here. Which saves a lot of faffing about later.

Yeah, does make a lot of sense for the movies at least, otherwise you'd still have them all to introduce somehow. Plus, limiting the McGuffins does save having a bunch of artifacts with similar capabilities and the none-comic crowd arguing 'If they've got X, why didn't that use it against Y'. Can see it annoying some fans though, but its nice that they're trying to keep the very confusing Marvel Universe somewhat less confusing.

Cameron Diaz on the windscreen in The Counselor; Alan Partridge getting shot; George Clooney's return in Gravity; the truth behind The Mandarin's identity in Iron Man 3; the shift of narrative focus in The Place Beyond the Pines; David Soul turning up in Filth - all waaaay bigger WTF moments than most of this list.

The Hangover III's extra scene after the credits was great, but there were better stingers in 2013: http://www.mediastinger.com/best-movie-stingers-of-2013/
