Recently we have gotten a number of looks at the many new looks of our favorite heroes in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. The film promises to see many of the Avengers suit up in new costumes including Captain America, Iron Man, and Spider-Man. But what has long been the most exciting new look for a hero is that of Thor or rather his new weapon. As we know Thor’s trusty hammer Mjölnir was destroyed in Thor: Ragnarök, and as such Marvel has been teasing he will get a new weapon in Infinity War. And it seems we finally have our first look at it.
We first got a hint of what the weapon would look like thanks to a leaked LEGO figure, which suggested it would be similar to his Ultimate Mjölnir or simply is ax Jarnbjorn. But this is our first look at the actual weapon he will wield on-screen.
As you can see here it looks just like his Ultimate Mjölnir and the handle may in fact be made from a familiar material. But the new weapon is not the only interesting feature of the merchandise as you can see Thor seems to have regained his eye. Along with his hammer Thor also lost his eye in his last solo outing and took to wearing an eye patch. The patch was also seen in the last two teasers for Avenger: Infinity War but for some reason it is absent here. Whether this means Thor will get his eye back or if it is to not spoil the events of Ragnarök remains to be seen.
You may also notice that the merchandie has revealed the name of the new weapon, Stormbreaker. This is the same name as the hammer weilded by Beta Ray Bill, but it doesnt seem to resemble the weapon.
It will be very interesting to see if Thor will regain his eye in Infinity War and what his new weapon will be capable of in the film. As more new looks at the film do start to become available make sure to stay tuned to SuperBroMovies for all the updates.
