In recently released concept art for the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, we can see Thor fighting alongside Rocket Raccoon. It seems from the art that Thor will no longer be using his trusty hammer Mjolnir in battle! Instead, it seems he is wielding Jarnbjorn.
A giant battle axe!
According to the comic books, Jarnbjorn is stronger than any metal and can cut through virtually anything. It was forged by dwarves when it seemed Thor was no longer deemed worthy enough to wield Mjolnir. It isn’t yet clear if that is the reason for the weapon change. However, it has been hinted at for a while that he might not on the right track to use Mjolnir. Or perhaps it is merely Thor’s weapon of choice in his battle against Thanos? Who knows…
An Instagram photo posted by user Taika Waititi reveals Chris Hemsworth surrounded by both weapons.
All will be revealed May 2018 when Avengers: Infinity Wars hits cinemas.
