    Interesting. The Official name is “Stormbreaker”. Everyone was soooo sure it was gonna be Jarnbjorn and it was just an axe, but it’s a hammer-axe. This also confirms the theory that this weapon is made from Groot’s arm.

    Nice! Full view! Looks very Ultimate hammer inspired, and not like Jarnjorn like people speculated.

    So groots gonna help make it, it looks like.

    No eyepatch on Thor??

  5. Cjalmighty February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Wait, isn’t Stormbreaker Beta Ray Bill’s weapon?

  6. PlayerCorps February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    the design of the hammer of thor is a combination between the Ultimate and the storm breaker of beta ray bill. definitely in the MCU will be the combination between the branches of Groot and the material of the planet of Nidavellir

    It’s obviously based on the Ultimate Mjolnir, but of course nobody is gonna call it that because it sounds silly, Stormbreaker sounds way badass, does this confirm the rumor that this hammer is designed to break the Gauntlet?

    rip dream of Captain America wielding Thor’s hammer

  9. Dubdown11 February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    What, Stormbreaker? Haha.

  10. TriT0nator February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Mjolnir ultimate, named Stormbreaker?

    Since no one has translated the runes I decided to do it myself. The runes on the bottom right say YMMORTALITY(?) last rune looks like a backwards y. The runes on the bottom left say HONOR. And I can’t make out the runes on the top left, they’re just too blurry. If anyone has a better picture I can give it a go there too.

    Edit: Nevermind figured it out. Top left says LOOSE THE DOGS OF WAR. That’s pretty cool.

  12. JizzleNerps February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    I wonder if it’ll fly like Mjolnir.

  13. MyStupidRants February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    I’m gonna be really disappointed if he gets his eye back..

  14. MisprintPrince February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    We already know BRB is in the universe *somewhere*, so this isn’t too surprising as a future plot foundation.

  15. FiftyMedal6 February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Is the new weapon going to have the same worthy enchantment we think?

  16. SchweppesBoy February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Tbh, I’d rather have Thor just go berserk with lightning shooting out of his hands and crackling around his skin and eyes. Doesn’t really need a hammer anymore…

  17. emp1981 February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Holy shit. Beta Ray Bill is coming to the MCU. I seriously doubt they used the name “Stormbreaker” as merely an easter egg!

  18. Ohiostate124 February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Isn’t Stormbreaker the name of BRB’s hammer? Interesting.

  19. arbaazm February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    It’s his eye, right? That’s the new weapon? Dope.

  20. Sicilian51 February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Could it be from the world tree? Since this is Norse mythology

  21. WoldNewton February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Maaaan thats just an axe with a vine around it

  22. The_Pip February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    I hope this means we get Beta Ray Bill at some point!

  23. JokerFaces2 February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    I think it looks great, clearly inspired by Ultimate Mjolnir rather than Jarnbjorn. The wood handle (from Groot, if leaks are to be believed) gives a very unique look. The worst thing they could do would be to replace Mjolnir (now one of the most recognizable fictional weapons in film) with something boring and generic. The ramshackle-looking handle gives Stormbreaker a feeling of unique history and makes it stand out.

    I’m hoping it has some unique abilities from Mjolnir, maybe instead of flying the handle can extend or change so Thor can wield it in different styles? Two-handed, pole-arm, etc.

    I also think people are really blowing the eye out of proportion. Hemsworth had already said that the eyepatch is entirely CGI, since he has no interest in acting and doing stunts with an eyepatch. It’s likely that toy manufacturers were just provided with promo shots of Hemsworth before the patch was added. Or maybe they’re vine still trying to preserve the twist in Ragnarok, and/or think kids would have too much trouble immediately recognizing him with the short hair, a new weapon, AND an eyepatch.

    I want a joke where rocket comes up with idea for this and says something like “and we’re gonna need that guys arm “ and then they actually do to Juxtapose his other plans

  25. Moralai February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    It looks too damn bulky imho

  26. p_trick_h February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    this looks goofy as hell tbh

    Ugh… I knew it was Storbreaker! I figured it out ever since the lego set description came out. And I think Beta Ray Bill will make and appearance. Once I put the clues together, this one seems like it has to go down at least close to this.

    Clue 1: Thor: Ragnarok designer Dan Hennah says that Muspelheim is a dyson sphere that surrounds and draws it power from a dying star. Well, Thor makes another passing mention in Ragnarok that Mjolnir was forged in the heart of a dying star.

    Clue 2: A lego toy set spoiler description says that they land on a “red planet.” What are dying stars called? Red Giants. And red giants can exist for up to a billion years.

    Clue 3: That same lego set that they are going to forge “ax-thunderbolt.” Well, we know that it is a translation from Russian. Go to google translate and translate “Stormbreaker” to Russian. Then translate it back to English. What do you get? “Thunderbolt.” …but now we have this pretty much confirmed!

    Clue 4: The lego set description also said “untwist the energy ray.” Well what could be a different name for “energy ray”? Beta Ray perhaps?

    Clue 5: Brad Winderbaum said the dyson sphere would have an inner layer inhabited by Surtur and the fire demons and “other creatures” who live on the outer layer.

    Clue 6: The Korbinites are from a Burning Galaxy that was destroyed by Surtur. They escape on a giant ship and are protected by Beta Ray Bill. Well that is essentially the same thing that just happened to Asgard and Thor, so I don’t think they’ll rehash it exactly.

    Clue 7: The fight to determine Beta Ray Bill’s worthiness is on the firey planet Skartheim. There’s no way Marvel will create ANOTHER fire planet for this fight.

    Clue 8: Marvel has made it clear that the cosmic universe will be the driving force of phase 4.

    So, I think Mjolnir was forged in the dying star that Muspelheim surrounds. Thor goes back to forge a new hammer “Stormbreaker” using a giant energy ray (a beta ray). At some point the the outer inhabitants of Muspelheim, the Korbinites, think they are being attacked so they send their protector to fight. The name “Beta Ray Bill” HAS to be a joke name given to him by Rocket Raccoon. Beta Ray Bill proves he is worthy to hold Stormbreaker, and after the events of Infinity War, either in the second film or afterwards, Thor gives Stormbreaker to Beta Ray Bill and he becomes the new “cosmic” Thor.

    I also think Hela is in Muspelheim with the Soul Stone, but I’ll leave that for another discussion.

    I’m betting this is one of those toys based on early concept art (they’re gives as early as a 12-18months in advance to toy factories) and the actual design of the axe in the movie will be different- so I wouldn’t base too much speculation on this.

  29. DCSennin February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    It looks quite cool.

  30. Leo_TheLurker February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    holy shit its called stormbreaker! Isn’t that Beta Ray Bill’s weapon?

  31. CyDev77 February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Thor has both eyes again

  32. ianrobbie February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Nobody going to mention the fact Thor has both eyes in the image? (We’re waaaay past spoiler territory now, right?)

  33. seahammer1 February 12, 2018 / 9:03 pm

    Last night (on the previous pic) I was a able to translate the words on the “hammer” part as **IMMORTALITY** and **HONOR**.

    EDIT: Ignore everything below. I made a mistake, but u/kenneth_on_reddit caught it and figured it out: **LOOSE THE DOGS OF WAR** is what it says.

    ~~I’m having a hard time making out the runes on the axe part, though. I can tell that the second word is **THE** and the last two words are **OF THOR**, but that’s hardly the interesting part!~~

    ~~Based on the word length and the letters I can make out, I’d hazard a guess that it is something like **SUMMON THE POWER OF THOR**, but I’m going to keep staring at it to see if I can be more certain. EDIT: There are just a few characters sprinkled throughout that I can’t confidently identify. I’m sure it is “Something the something of Thor.” It might be “Summon the Power of Thor” like I said earlier, but I’m second guessing that because things don’t quite match. I have to go to work now, but I’ll keep trying when I get home tonight.~~
