Thor: Ragnarok will be the titular hero’s third standalone adventure, but this time he won’t have his trusty hammer Mjolnir by his side. Trailers for the upcoming film revealed that Cate Blanchett’s Hela will destroy Thor’s reliable weapon, prompting fans to wonder what the God of Thunder will be wielding for his showdown with Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada, Chris Hemsworth hinted that Thor will be gaining a new weapon when he reunites with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
While Hemsworth could not provide details on what Thor will be carrying into battle in Infinity War, he did hint that fans will recognize the weapon:
“You’ll have to see. I can’t give it away, but there is something pretty exciting coming. I think the fans will know and love and be excited for it.”
Many fans are probably hoping that Thor will get his hands on the dwarven-forged ax Jarnbjorn, which was his weapon of choice in the comics before he became worthy of wielding Mjolnir. Capable of cutting through celestial armor, the ax would certainly be useful when taking on Thanos and his underlings.
In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok“, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladictorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!
Directed by Taika Waititi, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.
Thor: Ragnarok will be released in theaters on November 3, 2017.
