"I’d rather be a good man than a great king."
midgardian etiquette 101: when going to their homes, hang your coat first or in some cases, your mjolnir.
naw maybe it’s actually asgardian custom to check your weapons at the door
It was medieval custom to check your weapons at the door of the meadhall before greeting the king of the place you were going to. It was courteous and showed respect. You can see it in Beowulf.
what i don’t understand is how that hook can hold the mjolnir.
the hook is worthy
the hook is worthy
Peter Pan would disagree.
I’ve not read the comics but I always figured Mjolnir wasn’t heavy so much as stubborn, and if it decided it didn’t wanna move it just wouldn’t. It sits on Loki, rather than crushing him in Thor 1, and in Avengers it rests on the floor of the ship, and trying to pick it up Hulk starts breaking the floor with his weight, but Mjolnir doesn’t seem to weight anything at all (If it was as heavy as Hulk implied, it would drag the whole ship to the ground right?). Mjolnir isn’t heavy, cos its not going down, instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it. Hence, the hook doesn’t hold it, it merely remains in place.
Thor: We’re company, Mjolnir!
Mjolnir: Shut up! I know how to act!
#hemsworth does not get nearly enough credit for his physicality #it’s a thankless job because the villain - the loki - will always draw the eye; is always the more compelling #but jfc this elemental animalistic warrior king ready to destroy and be destroyed in the process for what he believes in #just gets me every time
Thor through the movies
The Avengers (2012)
I like that Hawkeye’s in front.
As he should be in this case, IMO. Coming face to face with the dude who mind-napped him for half the movie. The whole moment would’ve had a different effect entirely had someone else been in front. Besides, Clint’s the one with the more threatening weapon. Although Natasha could’ve threatened Loki with the scepter, but, again, would’ve been a different effect altogether. Clint being in front is just right for this scene. I wonder why Whedon put him in front, maybe he’ll explain in the commentary.
FINALLY! HE’S FRONT AND CENTER WHERE HE SHOULD BE!!!! NOT STANDING BEHIND SOMEONE!
I can’t imagine anyone else being in front in this moment, for reals.
