It’s a scene right out of fan fiction and it’s hysterical. The Avengers and their allies, all in earthly formal wear, each trying to lift Thor’s hammer Mjolnir off a coffee table.
This was the scene that appeared along with last night’s Agents of SHIELD. It included Tony stark trying to lift the hammer bare handed, then with his ironman gauntlet, then with James Rhodes and his WarMachine gauntlet. Steve Rodgers got the hammer to budge just enough to warrant a surprised glance from Thor, but couldn’t lift it. Natasha Romanov graciously declines to try, saying that’s not a question I need answered. Then Finally Thor picks up his hammer and flips it, declaring all his teammates unworthy.
And then Ultron crashes the party and the clip transitions into the teaser trailer we saw last week.
I’m very pleased with this scene. It showed the team at a casual moment while still exploring a curious question about their superhero powers. I also agree with the speculation that the question of other Avengers possibly being worthy to wield Mjolnir will come up again in a more important way later in the film.
