The first official trailer for Thor: Ragnarok featured a number of memorable moments, including the annihilation of Thor’s trusty hammer Mjolnir at the hands of Cate Blanchett’s villainous Hela. While Thor may be without his weapon of choice for much of his next adventure, it appears their separation may be temporary as directors Anthony and Joe Russo have shared a new image from the set of Avengers: Infinity War that features a fully restored Mjolnir.

Posted on the Russo Brothers’ official Instagram account, the image appears to taken at Durham Cathedral and features Joe Russo alongside a priest who is carrying Thor’s hammer. The priest appears to be the same individual who appeared alongside the Russo brothers in an interview where the directors shared details on what role the Cathedral will play in the film.

So fans can breathe a sigh of relief as it appears Mjolnir’s destruction will be temporary, but was there really any doubt the mighty hammer would return for the ultimate battle against Thanos?

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautisa, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin.

Avengers: Infinity War will be release in theaters on May 4, 2018.
