Captain Marvel has been poised to become one of the most powerful and strongest superheroes in MCU, but the question is- is she worthy? Can she lift Thor’s hammer, the Mjolnir?
The Mjolnir possesses a spell that allows only someone who is worthy of it to actually lift it. In the MCU only Thor has been the one to wield this hammer although when she had been asked if Captain Marvel can lift it, the actress, Brie Larson said, “definitely”.
In a very memorable scene from the movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron, all the other Avengers had tried to lift the Mjolnir, even James Rhodes and Tony Stark. Captain America’s Steve Rogers had gotten closest to it and kind of budged it, and this had shocked Thor. It was Vision who had then lifted the hammer.
All the fans think that Captain Marvel may not get a chance to do this as the hammer had been destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok by Hela, and this made Thor realise that his powers do not emanate from the hammer, but from him, and his willpower.
In the movie, Infinity War, Thor had forged the Stormbreaker which is now his weapon of choice.
As for Captain Marvel, this character will make her MCU debut in her stand-alone movie, and then she will join the Avengers in the movie, Avengers: Endgame, where the fans will see her interact with superheroes like Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America.
Captain Marvel will follow Carol Danvers as she becomes the most powerful superheroes when Earth has been caught in the middle of a war between two alien races.
Captain Marvel stars Academy Award-winner Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou (Korath), Lee Pace (Ronan), Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan (Minn-Erva), Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Kenneth Mitchell (Joseph Danvers), with Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson), and Jude Law.
