The Avenger: Infinity War trailer has been released, and it left more questions behind than answers. Many have been wondering how it ties in with the recently released Thor: Ragnarok. In the Infinity War trailer, we’re shown that Loki did take the Tesseract from Odin’s vault during the finale of Thor: Ragnarok. However, Thor is seen with his prized Mjolnir once again in the Infinity War trailer. How is this possible?
There were some leaks from the Lego tie-in, and those have been largely confirmed by the release of the newest Avengers trailer. The leaks were major potential spoilers for what could be going on with Thor’s weaponry.
These are the spoilers that might explain what we’re seeing:
- After Thor is defeated by Thanos, and after he takes the Space Infinity Stone from Loki’s Tesseract, tumbles through space. He eventually smacks right into the Guardians of the Galaxy’s ship.
- Thor then travels with Rocket and Groot to the realm of Nidavellir. It is the home of the dwarf blacksmiths, where Mjolnir came into existence.
- When the unlikely team comes across some trouble, they need to use the “space forge” to create a weapon that Thor can use.
In the trailer, we see Thor struggling with what looks like some machinery after he’s seen standing in front of what could possibly be the Space Forges.
It’s unmistakable Mjolnir in the recent Infinty War pictures, but they can’t be taken as confirmation that Thor gets that particular weapon and steady friend back. These same pictures show him with a scar on his right eye, but the film has him with an eye patch.
When we learned Mjolnir would be destroyed during Thor: Ragnarok, the speculation swirled that he would end up with his mythical axe, Jarnbjorn. The Lego set breakdown doesn’t name the weapon with that name, but instead calls it “the axe-thunderbolt”. When Avengers: Infinity War finally releases, we’ll know for certain which weapon he ended up with.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4th, 2018.
