One of the best moments of Avengers Endgame has to be when Captain America finally wielded Thor’s hammer Mjölnir, being found to be worthy. But just who else in the MCU is worthy of using the Asgardian’s weapon? Well a popular new fan theory argues that Ant-Man, Scott Lang himself, is too.
Reddit user Skyflakes101 wrote: “This one kind of goes off of MatPat’s film theory video speculating whether or not Thanos was worthy.
“But his theory claims that the qualities of being worthy is that you must be willing to sacrifice yourself for the greater good and must only use violence as a last resort.
“Scott possesses the 1st quality when he sacrificed himself by shrinking between molecules in order to defeat Yellowjacket.
“And he also possessed the 2nd quality since he often chooses to reason with an opponent through some charismatic matter before he uses violence. Such as when he fought Falcon in the first movie.”
While many fans upvoted the theory, some where not convinced.
One wrote: “Thor doesn’t use violence as a last resort and neither does Hela. Both of which have shown to be worthy to wield Mjolnir. Not sure where that comes from.
But another added: “The worthiness requirement didn’t exist when Hela wielded it.”
Of course, Mjölnir was destroyed in Thor Ragnarok, and the one Thor and Cap used in Avengers Endgame was borrowed from an alternate 2013.
Cap returned the hammer to the past at the end of the movie, but it’s making a comeback in MCU Phase 4.
In early 2022, Natalie Portman stars in Taika Waititi’s Thor Love and Thunder.
Her Jane Foster will be deemed worthy to wield Mjölnir and she will become The Mighty Thor.
Chris Hemsworth is returning to the movie with Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, but some fans suspect the movie is set in another reality of the multiverse.

Let’s also not forget that 2012 alternate Loki is on the run, having escaped with the Tesseract during Avengers Endgame’s time heist.
Tom Hiddleston’s character will next feature in the Loki Disney+ show next year.
The god of mischief is expected to be meddling with time, since he was wearing a prison uniform with a Time Variance Authority logo in the Super Bowl trailer this year.
The organisation polices time in the Marvel comics and looks to be making its MCU debut in 2021.
But with all this multiverse madness (not just for Doctor Strange) in Phase 4, presumably this alternate Loki will end up in Thor Love and Thunder.
Perhaps, he even gets his hands on a version of Mjölnir too.
We also wouldn’t put it past Loki to be a big problem for the Sorcerer Supreme in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
After all, the two previously came across each other in Thor Ragnarok and didn’t exactly see eye to eye.
