Yes, that's me.
I bet they have a “who can wreck the most bad guy stuff competition” scene once they attack Thanos.He's done that hammer thing before, and Loki wussed out, he wasn't completely sure that he could take it or that Thor would nudge it last minute. But if that WAS actually Odin, he'd have taken the hit or stopped the hammer. And if it was some third person, a true enemy of Asgard, then they reveal themselves in front of a crowd of angry Asgardians.
With Carol he was showing off, he didn't need to nudge it to not hit her, she didn't need to take the hit, and it didn't seem like 'are we going to fight', more like they were sizing each other up and realized neither one was going to actually fight the other (that's the narrowed eye smirk and 'I like this one') without caring who'd win because they're on the same team. It was supposed to make an impression, but everyone did very well at impressing each other. If that scene is in place of a 'two heroes meet and fight' scene between Thor and Marvel, I'd be so happy.
