Worthy widow

We all know about Mjolnir the epic and mystical weapon of Thor, God of thunder. Only they who are worthy to rule the nine realms can lift and command the massive hammer. Thor takes much pride in his weapon and isn't shy about him being worthy.

In the recent Age Of Ultron movie they put in a scene where the avengers take turns trying to lift Thor's hammer. Hardcore fans might have noticed something in this scene. I'm not talking about Steve taking his turn and the hammer moving a tiny bit. Yes, very early in the comic's when Marvel was still at it's first steps Captain America was able to lift it. In the more recent comics on which the movies are based however, it doesn't happen. I'm talking about the only avenger who doesn't take a turn trying to lift it. When the whole room looks at Natacha she replies with 'Oh, no, no. That's not a question I need answered'. This is a little something they put in for the fans because.. She's actually worthy!! In the recent comics she is actually able to lift the hammer.

This is just one of the little jokes they put in the movies with eye on the comic book fans. I for one am happy they try to stay somewhat loyal to the comics while making nice cinema!
