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

    Matpat I support your theory about when steve tried to lift the hammer but maybe he couldn’t lift it because he was still lying to to tony about bucky killed his parents again this just a theory

    Ultron: "They're doomed." Vision: *"Yes"* And Vision is STILL worthy of Mjolnir. That terrifies me.

    I don’t understand something maybe this comment section could explain. I thought that stormbreaker was just really heavy and not based on the “if he be worthy” rule but captain America throws it around like it’s nothing and makes it seem like it based on the worthy rule but then thanos catches it and uses it in a reverse uno card style

  • RedHeadKevin

    I wanted a scene in the fight in Endgame where Thanos tried to pick up the dropped Mjolnir, and through his sheer strength, he managed to barely get it off the ground before he had to drop it again. It would have made him even more terrifying.

    This seems very late but How meow didn't have to die in Endgame they could get 5/6 stones go back in time when Thanos got the soul stone embarrass him and take that stone

  • Hornswroggle

    19:14 Hang on MatPat: Natasha categorically cannot be brought back - even with the power of all 6 stones combined - Hulk explicitly states he tried but couldn't. Add to that: 8:16 Same with Tony's radiation burn. Thanos could heal the fatal wound of Stormbreaker with a snap, but not his arm that was charred by the stones.

    • Spidervenom23

      That we know of lol. Natasha could be alive right now and we don't it let. Keep in Mind all of the information we got from the Soul Stone comes from the Red Skull who is a Liar. He Could easily be lying about the "Soul for the Soul Thing" lol. also Mjinor Recovers all from the person death, It could have Revive Tony right there.

  • Hornswroggle

    The sheer arrogance of Larsson to, without even a second thought, say Cpt. Marvel would be worthy of the Hammer makes her character UNworthy by proxy...

    Pretty sure that Hulk would be able to lift the hammer if we used comic book lore instead of the movies. Mainly because he doesn't actually seem to have any upper limits in some of those comics..

    In Endgame, Thanos commands Glaive to rain fire and sacrifices his own soldiers to save himself, therefore he is not worthy

    I'd actually make the case that Captain Marvel was worthy of the hammer before she got her powers when she volunteered to fly Lawson to her lab when she knew that lives were on the line, and also when she blew up the light speed engine. However, I do think that once she gained full control of her powers she stopped being worthy.

    I think that Thanos in Endgame isn't worthy, at least the 2014 Thanos. He sees he won and becomes arrogant and selfish. He sees that he isn't thanked and decides that if those he let live won't thank him the ones who he makes in his vision of the universe will. He sees he beat the Avengers and does a whole attack on them as soon as he exits the tunnel. That's what I think at least.

    Steve was deemed worthy when he jumped on a test grenade in the first avenger. His sergeant threw a fake grenade at a squad and Steve (without the super serum) and Steve jumped on it and told everybody to get back.

    He wasn’t willing to sacrifice himself. Thanos if truly worth would of been willing to let himself be wiped out so another could have it. Thanos through selfish motives forced everyone else to sacrifice so he could have what he wanted without giving up anything himself

    He says in Endgame that he’s going to enjoy destroying Earth “a stubborn planet” maybe an infinity war time Thanos but still prob not worthy. but definitely not GOTG or final fight Endgame Thanos.

    There’s a scene in the movie you don’t mention where the hammer is thrown at him at it appears to repel away from him when he tries to catch it. Making it appear he isn’t worthy. Anyway he has the power of the universe yet instead of humanly removing to mind stone from visions head, he brutally rips it out. He could easily use his alien tech or 5 FUCKING INFINITY STONES to move it out of some Vibranium. Vibranium may be strong but 5 infinity stones can do it better than Thanos ripping it out. Sort of disproving the ‘doesn’t immediately resort to violent without seeking other solutions’

    Thanos is not worthy, he didnt self sacrifice he sacrificed gamora which is obviously not a self sacrifice and he could just have easily (if not easier) doubles all resources. Why not? He wants to cause sadness and chaos in his wake. (Also the minds stone totally gave him that plan)

  • Nerdy Gamer

    I say Spider-Man is worthy. He jumped on the spaceship when he could have just stayed on the bus “TO MOMA!”, but instead, he decided to help to save the world and passes up an opportunity to go home claiming “you can’t be a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man if there’s no neighborhood”. He does none of this for personal gain only for the greater good and for his desire to help, as proven by this line in civil war “when you can do the things that I can, but you don’t, then the bad things happen…they happen because of you.” It wasn’t his choice to be a superhero but when he become one, he uses his powers to help people the Avengers tend to forget. The fact that he has a secret identity proves that he doesn’t have anything to gain from this except the satisfaction of doing good. In the final battle in Endagme, when he screams “HELP SOMEBODY HELP!” Captain America throws the hammer and when he connects a web to it, it pulls him out instead of just dropping to the ground like it did with Quicksilver in Age of Ultron. “Yeah, that makes sense”. I rest my case

    I think Captain Marvel at the end of her solo movie could lift it. I really believe the act to save the Skrulls proved her worthiness. Others may disagree, but I believe that her leaving Earth to help the Skrulls find a home was the true showing of what she was in her mind. Actions changed over time, and it could have deemed her not worthy later on.

    Did this dude really say that this may be the reason Thanos was able to stop STORMBREAKER... STORMBREAKER isn't able to be held because your worthy, even ironman before infinity war would be able to hold it.


      thanos is worthy if u watched the full video u will know instead of rushing and trying to bust him like an idiot
