    The Avengers Play With Thor's Hammer In New "Age Of Ultron" Clip

    Turns out, Thor may not be the only one who's worthy. But who is that mystery woman at the end of the clip?

    A new clip for Avengers: Age of Ultron debuted late Tuesday after Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC.

    The clip was essentially a make-good after the film's official teaser leaked the week before, well in advance of its planned premiere during the Marvel TV series, forcing the studio to officially release the trailer.

    So instead, the studio released the above clip after Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. It's the same scene that played during the Age of Ultron panel at San Diego Comic-Con in July, but this is the first time the studio has released it publicly.

    The new clip features a short scene of most of the Avengers relaxing at the end of the party, fooling around with Thor's hammer. (No, not like that, this is a PG-13 movie.)

    Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) doesn't believe that the prophecy declaring Thor the only one worthy of holding his hammer Mjolnir is, you know, a thing.

    So Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) tries to lift it.

    And then he tries again, this time with an Iron Man glove.

    So he tries a third time, with his buddy James Rhodes (Don Cheadle) helping out with a War Machine glove.

    Nope x 2.

    Next up, Steve Rogers, aka Captain America (Chris Evans), tries to lift Thor's hammer.

    And what do you know… It kind of budges.

    But ultimately, Cap can't close the deal, and Thor is visibly relieved.

    Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) offers the floor to Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson)…

    …and she has the only sensible response to the question of whether she is "worthy" to lift Thor's hammer.

    Ultimately, no one but Thor can lift his hammer, leading Thor to drop this rather mild trash-talk bomb.

    The jovial scene is abruptly ended when the genocidal robot Ultron (James Spader) crashes the party and declares the Avengers puppets, which segues the clip into the previously released Age of Ultron teaser.

    The teaser does feature one new shot of Black Widow getting a look at Loki's scepter — which, as we previously learned from the Captain America: The Winter Soldier post-credits teaser, is what helped give new characters Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) their powers.

    But otherwise, it's the same teaser as before.

    Which leaves us with just one lingering question, really…


    We know the woman in the red dress is former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), and the woman in the black-and-white dress is clearly Black Widow. So who is this mysterious woman at the right?

    Up close, she definitely doesn't look like she's Thor's girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). So who is she?!

    Could she be Carol Danvers, the star of Marvel Studios' recently announced Captain Marvel feature film? Could this be Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), who we know will appear in Marvel Studios' Ant-Man, its follow-up to Age of Ultron?

    Who is this actress? And why is her identity being kept under wraps?

    So many questions! Damn you, Marvel!

    Update! Disney has confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the woman is South Korean actress Claudia Kim.

    This post has been updated with the identity of the mysterious third woman in the clip, so we can all sleep a little easier tonight.
