After Thor's Hammer being crushed by the First Born child of Odin, Hela, what weapon will he be using in the Avengers: Infinity Wars?

In Ragnarok, Thor has gained and lost some things. He lost his supernatural Hammer and one eye to his sister and gained a lot of power as seen in the movie. The lightning in his eyes.

What will be his next weapon a sword or an axe?

Signs point to Thor wielding an axe, likely Jarnbjorn or Stormbreaker.

In the comics, Jarnbjorn is the axe wielded by Thor before he received Mjolnir. Later, when he became unworthy of Mjolnir, he once again picked up Jarnbjorn.


Right now, our best evidence of this comes in two images.

The first is a shot from the first Infinity War trailer.

Thor appears to be attempting to get some sort of large machine moving/activated. The prevailing theory is that it is a star forge used to create the axe.

Star Forge?

The second is from a leaked photo of one of the upcoming Lego playsets. The playset is called "The Search For Thor's Weapon", and includes Thor and an unidentified* axe.

*The tweet identifies it as Jarnbjorn, but offers no concrete evidence that it is.

lego my leak

A new leaked image has emerged, purportedly showing a playset version of the hammer called "Stormbreaker". In the comics, Stormbreaker is the axe created for and wielded by Beta Ray Bill (who gets a passing reference/easter egg in Thor Ragnarok).


  • Who's that below Groot?

  • Unconfirmed, but speculated the last image is fake; Thor has no eye patch, and whilst his body is photorealistic the arm/axe are an illustration (although this is quite common on merchandise)... Commented Feb 14, 2018 at 17:37

    With the release of Infinity War, we now know that it was indeed an axe named Stormbreaker.

    and we also know why Thor does not wear a patch but the story is a little gross if I recall correctly
