Marvel fans rise to Thor Hammer challenge, craft DIY Mjolnir at home proving 'they're all worthy'
It's lockdown time. And, it's all gloomy thanks to the global pandemic. However, people have found creative ways to entertain themselves, owing to the best efforts of celebrities and big studios. This time, Marvel challenged Thor loyalists to craft their own hammers at home.
In their latest tweet, the studio showed off some of the best creations. Fans used tin foil, paint, duct tape, cardboard and scrap metal to create their own version of Mjolnir. Essentially, the basic elements were a box, rods and straps near the bottom.
The account tweeted the winners, "They are all worthy! Let's hear it for this week's crafty #MarvelMission: Mjolnir picks, including Dakshesh Jangid, Zoe Johansson, Ashley Beeman, Lauren D'Ambra. See more of our favorites: https://bit.ly/2zEbTHC #MarvelAtHome."
Fans reacted to this challenge and were impressed to see a dog in a photo near Mjolnir. One fan wrote, "The dog is worthy..." Another fan echoed the same sentiment. "I could totally pick up that flimsy hammer," a fan wrote, with a GIF of Palpatine from 'Star Wars'.
"WOW," an impressed fan wrote. "I want," another wrote.
In 'Avengers Endgame', one big talking point was Captain America (Chris Evans) picking up Thor's hammer. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo opened up on why he was able to pick up the hammer.
"I think everyone who's a Marvel fan at that moment where Cap tested the hammer, felt deep down in their heart that he was worthy and that he could potentially lift that and boy wouldn't it be special if one day he did," Joe explained.
"And obviously if you create drama around the circumstances of him wielding the hammer and then kicking Thanos' a** for 30 seconds after that, we felt like we could create a risible moment for the audience."
"We have to confess we have snuck into more than one theater over the past week and have taken great pleasure in witnessing the audience reaction to that moment," Anthony added at that time.
"In our heads, he was able to wield it….He didn't know that until that moment in Ultron when he tried to pick it up, but Cap's sense of character and his sort of humility and sort of out of deference to Thor's ego, Cap, at that moment realizing he can move the hammer, decides not to."
