‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Director Teases Mjolnir’s New Role


If director Taika Waititi knows how to do anything (besides making good movies and keeping us up to date with his next movie on Twitter), it’s how to make us laugh. A prime example of this is the short mockumentary released at San Diego Comic-Con, revealing exactly what Thor Odinson got up to while his buddies were trading blows and destroying airports in Captain America: Civil War.

In the said video, Thor reveals a look at an awesome drawing of his trusty weapon Mjolnir with bulging biceps and a pair of sunglasses. Well, Waititi has just shared some artwork on Twitter that shows a major role reversal in a similar vein to this drawing. Check it out below!

Does this give a spoiler for Thor: Ragnarok? Will see indeed see Thor and Mjolnir trade places, with Thor being summoned to the weapon’s strong hand? Definitely not, but it’s a good indication that we’re in for a humourous ride when the third Thor movie is released next year.

The cast of the upcoming movie is just as awesome as the director: it stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Jeff Goldblum, and Mark Ruffalo.

Thor: Ragnarok will be summoned into theatres on November 3rd, 2017.
