Question: Hey, i was just wondering if anyone could tell me what happens after the credits? I went to see it at the cinema and walked out before they were over. Thanks.

Chosen answer: This can be seen on You Tube, but the post-credits "Easter Egg" scene is set ten years later. Elizabeth and a young boy, (presumably her and Will's son) are walking towards a cliff overlooking the sea. A green flash is seen on Elizabeth's face. On the horizon is the Flying Dutchman (fully restored to its full glory) and Will is on the mast. He is returning to his family.

Question: In the scene where Jack is being rescued he says "Four of you have tried to kill mein the past. One of you succeeded". Barbossa tried, Will tried, Elizabeth tried (successfully) so who was the fourth person in the group that Jack is referring to?

Chosen answer: Apparently it was Tia Dalma, although it's not specified exactly how or why she tried killing him.

Question: Something I didn't quite understand about the locations of the places in Middle Earth. In FOTR when the group is trapped on the mountain Boromir suggests that they turn around and take the road to Gondor but Aragorn says it will take them too close to Isengard. In this film however we only see that Mordor is (also?)close to Gondor (Minas Tirith). I don't remember that Isengard was close to Mordor. If all this is true could that mean that Saruman knew that the group was either going to take the road to Gondor OR go through the Mines of Moria, knowing that he could catch them if they went through Gondor?

Chosen answer: Isengard isn't particularly close to Gondor, but it is very close to the road that leads there. If the Fellowship abandon their attempt to cross the Misty Mountains and head south, then the only option that they have to reach Gondor is to pass through the Gap of Rohan, a narrow opening between the Misty Mountains to the north and the White Mountains to the south, then head eastwards all the way through Rohan until they finally enter Gondor. Isengard was originally constructed to guard the Gap, so any attempt to travel that way will take them straight past Saruman's front door, which is far too much of a risk. Saruman knows full well that the Fellowship only have a few options regarding their route, so he's keeping an eye on the possible routes.

Question: Why did Beckett not fire back on The Black Pearl and The Flying Dutchman when they joined forces against him? Is it meant to be 'artistic licence'?

Chosen answer: Because he was so shocked at the turn in events that he simply froze up. It happens - people simply hit a situation which they can't deal with and freeze up. By the time he finally gets his head around it, it's far too late, the ship's already being destroyed around him and his men are abandoning ship. At that point, giving the 'fire' order would be pointless - there's nobody left at the guns.

Question: *Spoiler warning* Why does Sao Feng refer to Elizabeth as "Calypso" when in fact Tia Dalma is "Calypso"? Is he guessing, misinformed or knows something to convince him otherwise?

Chosen answer: Just after Sao Feng has been double-crossed by Beckett, Barbossa tells him they have Calypso, who is trapped in human form, aboard the "Black Pearl." He is talking about Tia Dalma, but Feng mistakenly believes he means Elizabeth, and he then barters a deal with Barbossa to take her captive.

Question: To my understanding, the creatures only come out when the 'darkness' comes. But in the scene where Rose and Cybil run into the acid-vomiting zombies, there was no 'darkness'. Am I misunderstanding something?

Chosen answer: In the games at least, the monsters are present even when the darkness isn't there - they could be a sign to indicate that the darkness is coming. It's not until the darkness comes that they are bombarded with them, and the most fierce creatures come out (in the case of the film, Pyramid Head - though he appears in the second game where there isn't a 'darkness' per se).

Damian Torres

Question: In Dead Man's Chest Beckett says that he left a mark on Sparrow, and Sparrow left a mark on Beckett, we know that the mark Beckett left on Sparrow was the brand of a P. Was it ever revealed in At Worlds End what mark Sparrow left on Beckett?

sadie

Chosen answer: No, but it doesn't necessarily have to be a physical mark, it's more likely to be psychological.

Question: What happened to the rest of the armada after The Flying Dutchman and The Black Pearl sank the Endeavor? Did the English all just leave, or do we assume that the Pearl, Dutchman, and the rest of the pirates turned tail and fled?I doubt the armada would have just let them go because they sank one ship.

Julie Wegner

Chosen answer: They fled. Since Lord Beckett would not give an order, they would not fight.

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: By "the British Crown" he meant the king. By "the British half Crown" he was just referring to the money in use by the British at the time.

Question: How were the vocal effects for the Ghost Rider done?

Chosen answer: Ghost Rider's voice was manipulated by sound designer Dane Davis. Davis filtered Cage's line readings through three different kinds of animal growls that were played backwards and covered separate frequencies. Davis then amplified the dialogue through a mechanical volumizer.

Question: Kind of a silly question but nonetheless; If Spider-Man were real, would he really be praised like in the film, or would the police do everything to stop him from being a vigilante? Would there be fines? Jailtime? Just very curious.

Chosen answer: Normally, he'd be considered a vigilante, but if the police and government somehow verified him as a super hero, they may allow him to act alongside the law (sort of like Batman) but not outside it. If super villains existed as well, I think they would most definitely allow him to work alongside the law. However, if Spider-man killed anyone, they'd issue a warrant for his arrest.

Question: How did Peyton get back in the house at the end without keys?

Chosen answer: The same way any common criminal gets in to a house, she "broke" in by either kicking the door, or smashing a window, etc. A locked door is not that hard an obstacle to overcome.

The Substitute Spanish Prisoner - S6-E2

Question: What does Dr. Visoza mean when he says that if Peggy "dropped a box of toothpicks" in front of Jimmy Witchard, she would understand how the Intelligence Institute expects a lot from him?

Chosen answer: He's referencing the movie "Rainman." He's saying Jimmy is autistic.

Grumpy Scot

Question: In the scene where The Bride smashes Buck's head in with the door, surely after 13 hours (the time it took for her to sit in the car and 'wiggle her big toe') someone would have noticed Buck was dead and the police would be involved. This would probably lead to them searching his car as well. I know it may be a deliberate mistake seeing as The Bride hasn't been chased for killing anyone else, but there were police in the beginning of the film so they do exist.

Chosen answer: Not necessarily. She probably stashed his body in her room. Nurses would rarely come in as she was comatose, so its likely they only check her twice a day. Also, 12-14 hours is not an unusual shift at all for a nurse, so its entirely possible no one noticed him missing.

Grumpy Scot

Question: At the jazz club, after Peter dances with Gwen, Gwen is upset and asks "That was all for her?" when she realizes that Peter was only dancing with her to bother Mary Jane. However, isn't Gwen still Eddie Brock's girlfriend?

Chosen answer: Not really. They only went out for coffee once. In Eddie's mind however, Gwen is his girlfriend.
