Avengers: Age of Ultron was released back in 2015 and a particular scene from the movie was paid homage in Avengers: Endgame. We are talking about the party scene in which every MCU superhero tried to lift Thor’s Mjolnir. Fans would remember that only Chris Evans’ Captain America was able to even move it slightly in the 2015 release. He went on to not just lift it but also control it in Avengers: Endgame. While a lot has been said about that iconic scene, Marvel Studios’ co-president Louis D’Esposito re-established that Captain would have lifted the hammer back in the Age of Ultron.

Captain America chose not to lift the hammer Age of Ultron for he did not want to hurt Thor's feelings. D’Esposito explains, “It’s Captain America’s turn to try, and you look over to Thor’s face, and he says, ‘I think he might be able to do it,’ but Cap doesn’t pick it up. But Cap could’ve always picked it up. He didn’t want to at that point because it would’ve not been right.”

Captain America is the leader of Avengers for a reason and he knew that lifting the hammer wouldn't have done down well with Thor. However, in Avengers: Endgame, Captain America decides to lift the hammer because he knew the right time has come and it was Thor who smiled instantly and said, ‘I knew it’. The scene still runs chills down our spine and brings a huge grin on our face.

Goosebumps

You are so let to Answer this question you need #uptodate

I think Iron man would have been better suited for it. No offense to Captain America. But I'm team Iron-man on this one. He has proven his worth.

Even I knew Cap was Worthy
But Mjolnir only suits the God of Thunder ⚒

I cried with happiness

No i didn't like that scene because I didn't want anybody else could lift Thor's hammer.

Ohh, I remember the goosebumps while I was watching the scene...

Electrifying scene
