The Real Reason For Hemsworth's Endgame Anger

The guy who plays the God of Thunder got heated over one particular part of Avengers: Endgame

During ACE Comic Con in Rosemont, Illinois (via ComicBook.com), Thor actor Chris Hemsworth revealed the moment in Avengers: Endgame that seriously annoyed him. He didn't get in a huff over having to wear heavy prosthetics to (literally) embody Fat Thor in the superhero ensemble, and he wasn't outraged over the fact that his fellow Avengers often poked fun at him over the course of the film. As it turns out, the scene that brought audiences to their feet and inspired cheers of joy and amazement from fans left Hemsworth more than a bit upset. 

The Aussie actor shared that he was "pretty angry" over the moment during the final battle against Thanos (Josh Brolin) in which Captain America (Chris Evans) summoned Thor's hammer Mjolnir. While Thor was shown smiling and saying "I knew it!" after Cap proved himself worthy of lifting Mjolnir, Hemsworth didn't have the same reaction. 

"I'm sick of people picking up that hammer, to be honest. It's playing with my toys, you know, it's like 'give me that,'" he said. 

When the ACE Comic Con panel moderator mentioned that Hemsworth looked like he didn't mind that Captain America was able to lift Thor's Mjolnir, the actor clarified that he really was annoyed. "I minded. Give it back, Cap. Have your little shield," Hemsworth said, laughing a bit to show that he was only slightly joking. 

Hemsworth was quick to think on the bright side of things, noting that he hadn't yet seen Captain America pick up Thor's other mystical weapon, Stormbreaker, which he forged in Avengers: Infinity War from the powerful metal Uru found in the furnaces of Nidavellir with the help of skilled blacksmith Eitiri (Peter Dinklage). Unfortunately, Hemsworth's optimism immediately came back to bite him, as the audience informed him that Cap actually did carry Stormbreaker in Avengers: Endgame

"Did he? See, I did this when that happened," Hemsworth said, covering his eyes to show how much he hates seeing other heroes lift his enchanted weapons

Someone else will lift Mjolnir soon

To quote the legendary Cher, Chris Hemsworth is simply going to have to snap out of it when it comes to people picking up Mjolnir and taking it for a spin. Captain America is one of a few people in the Marvel Cinematic Universe who have been able to wield the weapon – standing alongside Thor's father Odin (Anthony Hopkins), Thor's evil sister Hela (Cate Blanchett), and the android Vision (Paul Bettany). However, there have been plenty of heroes who have made friends with Mjolnir in the Marvel and DC Comics canons — like the cyborg Beta Ray Bill, DC's Wonder Woman and Superman, Thor's robo-clone Ragnarok, Awesome Android (a.k.a. Awesome Andy), the mutant Magneto, and even Thor's adopted brother Loki, arguably the most unworthy Marvel character to ever hold the hammer. 

But there's one other prominent character who has wielded Mjolnir on the pages of Marvel comics, and who will do so on the silver screen in the near future. Her name is Jane Foster, and she's going to become Mighty Thor in the MCU soon. 

Natalie Portman is set to return to the role of Jane Foster, whom she portrayed in Thor and Thor: The Dark World, in Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi's Thor: Love and Thunder. The fourth Thor movie is a history-maker for the MCU since it marks the first instance in which a hero has received more than three standalone movies, but it's also special in that it will introduce to the film franchise another Thor. 

In the comics, Jane Foster transforms into Mighty Thor after she's diagnosed with breast cancer following the deaths of her husband and son. (It's been a long time since Thor and Jane were romantically involved in the MCU, so there's a solid chance this is how she'll be introduced in Thor: Love and Thunder.) Thor learns of her condition and invites her to represent Earth in the Congress of the Worlds on Asgard. (The MCU's version of Asgard is now a small village in Norway, renamed from Tønsberg to New Asgard following the destruction of Asgard in Thor: Ragnarok.) Eventually, Jane learns that she's worthy of wielding Mjolnir, and that she possesses all the power of Thor when she uses it. The downside is that each time she transforms into Mighty Thor, all the toxins from her body are purged — including her chemotherapy. This worsens Jane's condition, and though she knows magical intervention would likely help, she refuses. 

That said, if he thought Captain America lifting Mjolnir in Avengers: Endgame was annoying, Hemsworth has another thing coming in Thor: Love and Thunder. Fingers crossed Hemsworth can see that Steve Rogers and Jane Foster are two totally different characters — he's got his "little shield" and she's got, well, not much — and that she deserves her time in the superhero spotlight when Thor: Love and Thunder strikes down on November 5, 2021.
