    The Russos Actually Confessed That Cap Was Putting On A Show

    The party scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron should honestly be in the Library of Congress. It's great for a lot of reasons, mainly watching superheroes engage with other when there's booze around. Everyone remembers when Cap struggles to pick up Mjilnor, but he was actually just putting on a show. During an episode of the Happy Sad Confused Podcast, Anthony Russo stated:

    "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 humility and, out of deference to Thor’s ego, Cap in that moment realizing he can move the hammer, decides not to."

    Thor Remembered Cap Can't Get Drunk Off "Human" Liquor

    Being a superhuman must be tough. After all, Cap couldn't even help himself to a drink for most of his life. Not until he met Thor, anyway. Without having to ask, Thor gave Steve some of the good, superhuman stuff. From Redditor /u/Campbell_Beans:

    In Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015), Thor gives Captain America Asgardian liqueur without question because as mentioned in The First Avenger (2011), his super soldier serum prevents him from getting drunk.

    Heimdall Hints At The Existence Of Hela

    Thor has a few visions in Age of Ultron, and there's a ton of hidden details that are way too easy to miss. Aside from the obvious plot against Ultron, Thor gets a glimpse at Asgard through Heimdall. Not even the God of Thunder could've caught small patch of dialogue in passing. From Redditor /u/Yvsh:

    In Avengers: Age of Ultron, during Thor's vision, Heimdall calls the first son of Odin and not the first child because Hela is his first born.
