Leaked LEGO Image May Confirm Thor’s New ‘Infinity War’ Weapon
If you’ve seen Thor: Ragnarok – and if you haven’t, spoiler alert! – you know that we’ve had to say bye-bye to Mew-mew. That is, Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer and symbol of his power over thunder, is gone. Not that Thor is any the worse for wear because of it. My dude can shoot lightning from his eyes (well, eye). He’s gonna be just fine. But, hey, why squander the chance for a cool new weapon? If a leaked image of an Infinity War LEGO set is legit, Thor’s getting an upgrade.
The new image, via Instagram user paul_seeley1 (h/t Comicbook.com), shows Thor, Groot, and someone else as part of a new tie-in LEGO set called “The Search for Thor’s Weapon.” Also part of the set is a big battle axe, which may confirm that Thor will be wielding Jarnbjorn, Wrecker of Worlds, forged by Dwarves and used by Thor long before he was worthy of Mjolnir. Scroll to the second image below to see the alleged leaked set.
It also looks like Groot will have vine arms in Infinity War. Cool. We’ve seen Jarnbjorn teased before in that epic concept art featuring all the heroes we saw way back before Infinity War was split in half.
Sure, Thor can control lightning without channeling it through a weapon now, but let’s be honest here, Chris Hemsworth swinging around a giant battle axe is going to look very cool, and I can’t wait.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters May 4, 2018.
