Captain Marvel star Brie Larson took to Instagram to show she could also lift the Mjolnir. Thor: Love and Thunder star Natalie Portman took to the comments section to ask her to be careful with her hammer.
Already, it seems like the Thor actor feels a sense of belonging to the Asgardian hammer. In fact, in a new Instagram post, Captain Marvel star Brie Larson posted a picture of herself in the Marvel Studios offices wielding Mjolnir. The photo comes with a caption that reads: “Not to be whatever, but….told you I could lift it,” a reference to the actor’s belief that Carol Danvers can lift the mighty hammer.
In the comments, Natalie Portman wrote a humorous warning: “Hey muscles, easy with my hammer!!!” she joked, before adding plenty of heart emojis.
Larson’s next appearance as Captain Marvel has not yet been confirmed, but Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige made it clear that the sequel to their billion dollar-grossing film was on their list of priorities.
In Avengers: Endgame, Steve Rogers returned Mjolnir to its rightful place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s past. As it stands in the present, the hammer was destroyed by Hela in Thor: Ragnarok. For now, there is no telling how Mjolnir will come back into play in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Love and Thunder starring Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth arrives in theaters November 5, 2021.
