Thor’s Avengers: Infinity War Battle Axe Made Known (Spoilers)

Thor's Avengers: Infinity War Battleaxe Made Known (Spoilers)

We all know by now that Thor gets a new battle axe for The Avengers: Infinity War as his hammer, Mjolnir, was destroyed by Hela in Thor: Ragnarok.

While I thought Thor’s battle axe was Jarnbjorn from the comics, it turns out it’s something different and much, much cooler!

The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly is centered on The Avengers: Infinity War where an article discussing a particular scene confirms the name of Thor’s hammer.

It’s Stormbreaker!

Thor and Captain America are standing on an African savanna beside a sparkling river, back-to-back for the first time in ages, each reunited with his old friend while wielding new weapons. Cap’s red-white-and-blue shield is gone, replaced by a pair of vibranium gauntlets (courtesy of Black Panther’s genius little sister, Shuri), while Thor swings a mystical ax known as Stormbreaker, a supersized upgrade from his demolished hammer, Mjolnir.

Beta Ray Bill Stormbreaker

That’s right! The hammer of none other than Beta Ray Bill!

Obviously, Marvel Studios seems to be going a different route in the MCU than in the comics, as in the comics Odin creates Stormbreaker for Beta Ray Bill. Thor: Ragnarok also featured a Beta Ray Bill Easter Egg as Bill’s face was mounted on the tower signifying Beta Ray Bill was a past champion of The Grandmaster. 

It would be pretty awesome if Marvel Studios is setting up Beta Ray Bill in a future movie.

Here is another possible spoiler for Thor’s new weapon.
