Film Theory: Is Thanos Worthy of Thor's Hammer? (Avengers Endgame)

  • Published: 27 June 2019
  • SUBSCRIBE for More Film Theory! ►

    In Marvel's Avengers Endgame we learned that Captain America is worthy of Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. That is a BIG revelation and it made me wonder - who else is worthy? The scene in Age of Ultron made it seem like no one else was worthy but I believe that over the course of the last few film, that answer is no longer correct. Who is worthy? Time to find out!

            Fun fact:

            The actual reason Romanoff never tried to lift Mjolnir is because ScarJo was pregnant during filming.

                    If they revived Tony, it would be stupid because it would make this death have no impact.

                      i always thought "what if instead of LIFTING mjolnir, you were to PUNCH it away from you, launching it at an enemy?" would it still not move? after all there is no rule about punching or pushing the hammer as far as I am aware, please correct me if i am wrong.

                        I thought Steve was able to hold back Thanos because of sheer will power.

                                  Actually in End Game, he said he had never felt personal for wiping out half of the species on planets, but it was his first time feeling personal wiping out humans.

                                    I reckon the infinity war thanos would be worthy
                                    But I reckon that endgame thanos is not worthy

                                                      18:20, yes, kind of, but didn't Odin regret his actions, hasn't he grown wiser then he was. So my opinion is no.
                                                      But that's just a theory, a film theory.

Just like him waiting for the big 3. Or when he teleports to his home world. He doesn’t attack first, iron man does. He was just talking.
