Even though Thor is the most famous holder of Mjolnir, many others in the Marvel Universe have been able to lift the hammer if they've proven themselves worthy of wielding the power of the God of Thunder. Today, Brie Larson, the star of next year's Captain Marvel, proved herself to be worthy in a lighthearted video directed toward Chris Hemsworth, the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Thor.
Larson posted a video on Twitter that shows a repeating six-second loop of herself lifting and swinging a 16-pound sledgehammer towards what appears to be a slab of concrete, acting like she was wielding Thor's Uru hammer itself. Naturally, most fans have been positive toward the video, with one even declaring her "worthy" of Thor's power.
Sadly, Larson's Captain Marvel may not get to hold Mjolnir in Avengers 4, as the hammer was destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok. Captain Marvel's comic book counterpart has, thus far, never picked up the hammer, either.
However, the video once again shows the sense of humor that the cast and crew of the Marvel Cinematic Universe display behind the scenes and the fun the actors have with one another when not playing their characters.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, and Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Algenis Perez Soto, McKenna Grace and Annette Bening. The film arrives March 8, 2019.
