The hammer has previously deemed other Avengers worthy of possessing the power of Thor, but which of the MCU’s Phase 4 Avengers could lift Mjolnir?
With the next phase of the MCU is in full swing, questions are already arising regarding which of the Phase 4 Avengers could lift Mjolnir. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings‘ release kicked off phase 4 proper in style, smashing box office expectations and heralding a welcome return to the MCU after a two-year hiatus. In Shang-Chi‘s post-credits scene, Bruce Banner and Carol Danvers’ cameos signal the re-emergence of Avengers-style superhero teams and raise the tantalizing prospect of a reformed phase 4 Avengers.
Thor will also be returning to phase 4 of the MCU in Thor: Love and Thunder, slated for a summer 2022 release. An integral part of the original Avengers, Thor will undoubtedly be an automatic inclusion into their phase 4 incarnation wielding his iconic hammer, Mjolnir. Thor’s hammer was an integral component of the MCU phase 3 story, from the awe-inspiring powers it granted the Avengers to anointing the people it deemed worthy, such as Vision and the old Captain America, respectively.
