The Avengers: Infinity War art book reveals that Thor almost had a different weapon in the Marvel Studios film.
After his hammer was destroyed by Hela in Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War partly followed the God of Thunder as he embarked on a quest to Nivadellir with Rocket Raccoon and Groot in search of a new weapon powerful enough to defeat Thanos. While his journey eventually resulted in the formation of the Stormbreaker ax, new concept reveals that Thor almost carried a gun instead of the aforementioned weapon.
