"Whosoever holds this hammer, if he (or she) be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor." By now, we've all seen the special look and teaser trailer for the upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Let's get this out of the way, the extended footage is great! In less than 30 seconds, Joss Whedon effectively captures the camaraderie and friendship with all of the members of The Avengers. In 30 seconds!! Now that's impressive. If the rest of Age of Ultron is like this extended look at the sequel film, then we're in for something really special and exciting.
The scene features all of The Avengers hanging out in Avenger Tower (formerly Stark Tower) drinking and hanging out. They're having a good time just being together. Thor enters the scene and places his hammer Mjolnir on a coffee table and begins to taunts the rest of the super team to pick it up. We then see a very awesome scene where Tony Stark and Steve Rogers trying to pick up Mjolnir. We even see Don Cheadle's James Rhodes getting in on the drunken fun, as he and Stark use their armor to try to pick up Thor's hammer.
The best moment of the scene is the look on Thor's face when Captain America manages to slightly budge Mjolnir. Bruce Banner teases Black Widow to give it a shot, but she only replies, "Oh, no no no. That's not a question that I need answered," as she smartly drinks her beer.
Why doesn't she even give it a shot? We know that Bruce Banner can't pick up the hammer. We saw him try as The Hulk in The Avengers. He's simply, like most of The Avengers, not worthy enough to possess the power of Thor. However, maybe [Black Widow](movie:1070824) is worthy? (via HitFix.com)
In Marvel's "What If Age of Ultron," Black Widow picks up Mjolnir to possess the power of Thor. Maybe she'll become the next Thor after [Thor: Ragnarok](movie:956858)? Maybe Thor 4 will finally be the Black Widow movie we're all anxiously waiting for?... Or maybe this is just an Easter egg for the geekiest of geeky.
What do you think? Is Black Widow worthy to be Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
