Infinity War Toy Reveals Thor's New Weapon (2018)

Description

Merchandising is ramping up as we near the release of Avengers: Infinity War, and from these toys we can put together a few more pieces of the movie's puzzle.

Recently, a toy leak gave away the new design of Captain America's shield, which was then confirmed during the Superbowl spot. Since then a couple more merchandise images have surfaced, giving us a closer look at the Infinity Gauntlet and Thor's new weapon.

Previous rumours said that Thor would use the battle-axe Jarnbjorn in the movie, after Mjolnir was destroyed by Hela. The new merch, however, shows something that's more in line with the Ultimate version of Mjolnir, which is half-hammer, half-axe. Take a look below.

 

 

As you can see, the handle is made of wood, with another rumour suggesting it's actually made from part of Groot. There's also a belief that, like Jarnbjorn, the new weapon will be forged by a dwarf (or dwarves) on the planet Nidavellir.

What do you think about Ultimate Mjolnir? This week The Incredibles 2 also got a new poster - check it out here.
